couch is the greatest enemy of success
I was in the home of one of my
Tenants and this Tenant needs to move in a week or so, because we are selling
the home. He has had almost two months to find a new home, but he still is
having problems. When I was there, he was sitting on the couch watching a day
time television talk show; you know one of those shows that show the part of
society we all are relieved that we are not. I have to wonder, what is
this guy thinking.
"People who succeed have
momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more
they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is
to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy."
This quote painted a picture for me about how much the couch in our
homes can be the greatest enemy of success and a huge momentum killer. To have
momentum, you need to move, sitting on a couch in the middle of the day
watching television will never create any momentum for your success.
In my business of Property Management in Anaheim Ca. I often wonder why
so many renters are home during the middle of the day, now some of them have odd
hour jobs, but many of them are just home on the couch. Those are the same
people who complain that the world is against them and nothing has gone right in
their life, but they never once think about the choices that they make to help
keep their life in disarray.
I really dislike those daytime TV shows and I bet if they did a study
on who watches them, they will find that most of them are just lost in their life’s
desires and if they would just turn off the TV and get out and restart their
live, they could find the momentum that all of us desire.
I like reading quotes from successful people, but these quotes, while
they can motivate you, they cannot make you do anything by themselves. You need
to want to be successful before any quote can have an effect on you. For some
people there may have been an event in their lives that somehow stripped them
of their hope and many of those people will never recover because they have
lost the desire to do so, but for people who still have the desire but have
lost their way, a motivational quote can be helpful and may even be the
emphasis for getting off the couch and becoming a productive person again.
If for some reason you lose your job, you should not break your
routine. You should still get up in the morning at the same time, get your
coffee and now instead of going to your old job, your new job is to be in
constant search of a new job. Not breaking up your routine and settling for the
couch will make finding a new job much easier and it will come much sooner.
