Don’t hide how special you are, it serves you as a natural filter for unwanted people

You are a special person. In fact, you are like a good business because of your nature. You don’t know exactly who you will reach but you know it will be the right people of your target audience.

Meaning: If you are looking to do good business show the essence of your venture and therefore the people you want to attract. The same goes for dating and finding „the one“: Because of who and how you are you have a natural filter for unwanted people to only let through the people you want to be surrounded with. If you polish yourself and your self the chance to radiate its purity you will attract exactly what you’ve been looking for.

If you are true and radiate a true self, the truth will echo back.

If only once you smelled how showing up changes you, you will never return to feeling like a victim

Even if only once you experienced how you win and own the day when you got up early, smelled the fresh morning air walking outside for a few minutes, returned and started your day with the most important task first, even if that had only happened once, you will remember this is your way to go because when you become in charge and take responsibility for your life after your early rise, new comrades will join your journey: Say „hi“ to achievement, fulfillment, and happiness. They stay and leave. But if you continuously show up, they will come back and stay until they leave again. Over time, the more experienced you get with showing up every day, the cycles of leave-stay-return will get smaller, almost but never permanent.

Here’s also why you should show up every day, by Shawn Blanc. After why comes how, so here’s Sean McCabe illustrating how you show up every day.

Why my business year has 48 weeks

As a business owner I count a year in weeks, the year consists of 52 weeks (I’m not counting the extra day). I also count a month in weeks, the month consists of 4 weeks (28 days). With 12 of those months, my business year has 48 weeks. All the extra days per month (1-3) I save and let them define the length of my off-time from my business. I’m using this time to cut myself off from the „hyperconnected“ world and explore the tangible world to reset my self.

(In German: Ich gehe auf analoge Forschungsreise, um den Einklang mit meinem Selbst zu prüfen und ggf. wiederherzustellen).
