Today’s Mandala Message: Count What’s Valuable
This week I’m working through Principles #21 and #22 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Keep Score For Success” and “Practice Persistence”, respectively. I set my intention today to ponder the idea of counting what’s valuable, counting what matters, keeping track of the wins. Canfield states: “We keep score mostly of what is good, because that is what we want more of.”
In essence, it serves us best to count the number of times we got up versus the number of times we fell down. Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has this philosophy he uses called “don’t break the chain”. The gist of it is: if you want to become a better comic, you need to write better jokes, and in order to write better jokes you need to write every day. We can use that same strategy for tracking our daily wins.
So how about you? Are you more likely to keep track of when you “fall down” or when you “get up”?
“Tracking— Darren Hardy
is a simple exercise.
It works because it brings
to the actions you take
in the area of your life
you want to improve.”
