How I do one thing, I do everything
This tool sounds very simple as a concept but this is completely opposite to what we actually do in our daily lives. We also call this as a million dollar secret tool and you will soon discover it why?
These tools are not from the books but straight from the experience of life. There are many who have used these tools in their life; their life is not the same again. In fact, this so simple sounding stuff works wonder for those who are somehow stuck in the cyclical loop or treadmill of life. Be it job performance, business outcome or relationship issues, if you are one of those who are somehow get stuck in the same loop, forget about law of attraction for a while and apply this. You will break the pattern and move to a new realm of possibilities.
Now days, everywhere we go we meet people talking about passion, interest and potential. We also meet people who quit their jobs, business or even relationships because they were not passionate about it or interested in that kind of work, relationship or they believed it was not appropriate as per their potential.
Dictionary meaning of passion is “strong and barely controllable emotion” and so every one is looking for some project, task or work where they can have strong feelings toward it but isn’t it true that emotions are created by us as human beings and it keeps on changing as we keep growing?
For example: As a kid, I was very passionate about collecting marbles, wwf cards and news article related to cricket. Today, My son is passionate about reading about cricket and collecting cricket cards. But now, I find it nonsense because I think how can some one be so stupid to collect these cards and stuff.
So if we look back every 3-5 years of our life we will notice that our passion is not constant. It’s changing as we are growing (if we are growing). Growing not just in terms of height, weight or age but also as a human being.
So question to ponder is things that I think I will be (am) passionate about today may change tomorrow when I grow. So what’s the point of quitting my job, relationship or business to pursue something I am passionate about?
Now that will be very stupid of me to assume or say that don’t be passionate about anything in life or just die in your current job or relationship. I am talking about growth and how can growth happen without being passionate. Now that’s what we call a paradox (in little crass way, it’s called confusion). Rather than living with nonsense conclusions, it’s better to live with confusion because when confusion arises seeking begins.
So problem is not that we are passionate but real problem is that we are about passionate about “something”. This something is “
- never fixed,
- always a mystery,
- dependent on many outer circumstances
- we don’t know when we arrive at this
Since it’s a mystery and we don’t know when we arrive at this, so we can safely say there is a possibility (no matter how slightest but there is) that whatever we have, wherever we are or whoever we are, is actually what we are seeking for?
So why not be passionate about “everything” and not just about “something”. It can be easily done only if we don’t let our emotions drive us. We get driven by the workability and not by emotions. I will look at the workability of things and not my liking and disliking.
In the beginning I said, we call it as a million dollar secret. Now is the time to reveal the secret. Here, I have small personal story to share.
Few years’ back, I was “trying” to set personal SMR (specific measurable results) or goals but every time I set a goal, things start to move but never reached that golden figure in mind (and in many people’s mind) “1 Million Dollar”. But when I applied this tool “how I do one thing, I do everything”, things magically started to fall in place (you can also check our another value “Miracle Happens).
Earlier, I was waiting for that million dollar deal, so I was giving more attention and time (or so I thought) to bigger projects, clients and deals but guess what, it did not happen again.
So with this tool (value), I realized how I do one thing, I do everything.
If I was not giving my full attention to so-called small things, small work or even small clients, I was not giving full attention to anything. Whether it is having a discussion with a million dollar client or cleaning the floor of my office.
It was same way I was listening to my client’s requirements and my wife’s complaints about me not picking up my stuff.
I was same everywhere and although, I thought otherwise.
From that day onwards, I started giving my full involvement and attention to everything as if I was getting million dollar for that. Now everything is a million dollar assignment and I am now very near to the golden figure. So many awesome things are happening like never before and this lead us to our next value “Miracle Happens”.
