How can I keep my mind clear from pollution
Unlike morning reflection 3, I was weak today.
It was 5:30 AM when my alarm went off.
Feeling sick, tired, sore, I texted my friend that I was out for our run and went back to sleep.
The key this week on my Stoic journey is circles of control.
Sick, sore, tired, things I cannot control.
Choosing to get out of bed to meet a friend for an agreed run, 100% within my control.
I won’t dwell on the failure, I will recognize I made the wrong choice and continue to focus, day by day, in making the right choices and getting back on track.
To keep my mind free of pollution, I will continue to meditate. Train my mind to focus, and push to always make the right decisions.
Financial independence thoughts
Steve @ ThinkSaveRetire tweeted Small, Smart Choices + Consistency + Time = RADICAL DIFFERENCE.
I could not agree more. This ties right back to my earlier post on Kaizen, and is something I believe is fundamental to improving oneself and in obtaining financial independence.
To do this, you must maintain your focus. You cannot ignore the little things on your journey to betterment and financial independence.
