Golden Rule #21: Eat smart, eat sparingly and exercise.
What good is wealth if you don’t have your health? Eat only clean, nutritious foods free from pesticides, herbicides and chemical additives. Stop eating long before you’re full, and only eat when you’re hungry. Excess need for digestion takes energy and a toll on your longevity. And of course exercise. You should engage in enough physical exercise to make you sweat at least three times a week. If you haven’t been exercising regularly, you’re in for a treat: Exercise gives you energy, makes you feel better emotionally, and enables you to think better and work faster.
Golden Rule #22: Spend Wisely.
Before you spend money, ask yourself if there is a more economical way to achieve the same goal. For example, do you really need that expensive computer desk when you can get one that serves the same purpose for half the price? More businesses fail for lack of capital than for any other reason. Don’t waste yours.
Golden Rule #23: Build relationships with others in your field.
No one succeeds alone – and the person with friends is a person rich indeed. In “It’s a Wonderful Life,” George Bailey was considered the richest man in town because he had so many friends who happily came to his rescue when he needed help. What about you? When you need help online, do you have a small army of friends you can turn to? If not, maybe it’s time you found some, and the easiest way to make a friend is to become one.
Golden Rule #24: Build a mastermind group, then meet weekly.
Two heads are better than one, and 5 to 8 heads are better than 2. You’re not building a committee, you’re building a group of like minded individuals who help each other succeed through sharing ideas, support and resources. Remember, some of the most successful people in history attribute their astonishing feats to their mastermind group.
Golden Rule #25: Never stop learning and progressing, and you’ll never get bored with life.
If you’re learning something new every single day, life is exciting and interesting. You’re either growing or dieing, there is no in between. So choose to grow, and have the best life and most successful Digital Business possible.
Golden Rule #26: Start small, think big.
Know what it is that you want (you’d be surprised how many people don’t have a clue what they want!) and then devise a plan and take action. Pay attention to whether or not what you’re doing is moving you closer to your goal. If it’s not, you need to change what you’re doing until you’re on the right track, always checking and adjusting along the way. It’s like a pilot flying a small airplane – most of the time he’s not headed exactly in the right direction, but if he keeps paying attention to where he is and where he wants to go – and corrects along the way – it’s just a matter of time before he gets to exactly where he wants to be. And by starting small you’re making it easy to take action. No one eats an elephant in one bite, but if they just focus on one small piece at a time, they can do it. And so can you.
