Everyone has the same number of hours in a day. There are people who are extremely successful in their careers and businesses and others who use the “I’m too busy for that” phrase all the time. In the modern world of open possibilities, including the ability to do business online without stepping foot inside an office, you can see a person who took a shot and made it with the same resources available to everyone and with the same number of hours.
Are they smarter? Wealthier? More charismatic? There are people out there who just want to stop worrying about paying their bills. Period. This is the biggest issue for them right now rather than becoming a multi-millionaire in the future.
Besides, according to recent research done by Gallup, 87% of employees worldwide are actively disengaged in their job. Active disengagement could mean that employees hate their job so much that they go out of their way to sabotage their company.
It means that only 13% of people are actually living on purpose by living the lives they want to live. Today, we are going to review three strategically important habits that successful people apply to each area of their lives and how we can do the same.
HABIT #1: SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE STAY FOCUSED.
One of the most important things that separate successful people from the rest of the world is the ability to set clear goals and follow a chosen path. They know that there are lots of talented people with brilliant ideas out there but understand that we are living in an age where you compete, not for the unique idea, but for its EXECUTION.
A brilliant businessman, Tom Bilyeu, whose company had a billion-dollar turnover in less than two years said, “You’re here because you already have something beautiful to come out. You already have an idea of a better life. You just need action. Only action matters. Everyone here has an idea. I give out ideas for free all the time because I know that I’m not competing against ideas. I’m competing against execution.”
However, the modern world brings a huge number of distractions; starting with our phones, social media, communication with people, and those “useless” information about actresses giving birth or politicians commenting on certain events. Whether we want those distractions or not, it all sets in our subconscious mind.
This information leads most people to say, “I have no time for this” when it comes to actually making an impact in their lives. This is because the work that can be completed in a couple of hours can take twice as much time with those distractions. With the inability to focus on one goal, day after day, month after month, all people end up living with is their unique ideas and busy schedule.
Science has detected that concentration and focus occurs when the brain’s prefrontal cortex, which controls high-level cognitive tasks, is awash with the right cocktail of neurotransmitters, hormones, and other body chemicals – particularly, the “pleasure chemical” called dopamine.
The lack of dopamine in the body is associated with symptoms like fatigue, lack of focus, difficulty in concentrating, forgetfulness, insomnia, and lack of motivation. So, if you have tried taking advice from life and business coaches, and it did not work, the problem could be physical which cannot be solved by watching motivational videos or reading books about successful people and their life stories.
Now, let us see where CBD stands on that. When taken on a regular basis, CBD can interact with dopamine receptors which play a crucial role in regulating many aspects of behavior and cognition.
Oh, and that is not all. Another chemical CBD interacts with is Anademine, which has an impact on joy. So, there is a good chance in allowing your body to help you reach your personal goals AND enjoy the process along the way!
HABIT #2: SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO GET A GOOD REST.
Statistically, every one out of three adults in the US are not getting a recommended seven hours of sleep. Above that, have you ever woken up feeling tired? Even after sleeping for seven hours?
Well, putting themselves first is another common feature among successful people. No matter how busy their schedule is, they always find time for a good rest. They treat it as PART of their business and professional life; not some separate action.
The quality of sleep is what matters most and people who want to function fully and put themselves out 100% understand that. If your sleep is interrupted, you wake up feeling tired and exhausted and that hinders you from being productive for a long time. Other side effects from lack of sleep also include weight gain, negative emotions, and a greater risk of heart disease.
Let us see how CBD can fix that. CBD can help you sleep but does NOT make you sleepy during the day. Gretchen Lidicker, author of CBD Oil: Everyday Secrets, mentioned that studies mainly point to CBD’s ability to interact with serotonin receptors and GABA receptors in the brain. Serotonin plays an important role in mood and anxiety and GABA is known as the main “inhibitory” neurotransmitter, meaning it calms excess activity in brain and promotes relaxation.
HABIT #3: SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE CONTROL STRESS.
Ok, so it does not mean that successful people are superhuman who never worry about anything. But many can agree that, “with great power comes great responsibility.” In fact, no one can control emotions caused by certain events because emotion is something we experience for a moment. It is our reaction to things that happen, and it can last for 10-15 minutes only.
What happens later, however, does make a difference. General people take this emotion, react on it immediately, and then replay a moment in their minds which makes them experience the emotion continuously. Now, THAT is what causes stress.
The event has passed but you are still worrying about it instead of letting your brain calm down and search for the solution.
You see, successful people avoid that. They know that they cannot control some events in their lives AND their first emotions. They TRAIN themselves, physically and emotionally, to calm down and react in a descent way. And you know what? CBD helps in that too.
A study performed in 2010 showed that CBD not only helped reduce current anxiety, but it also changed the initial brain reactions of the anxiety. Brain scans showed changes in the blood flow patterns throughout regions of the brain that was associated with stress and anxiety.
Along with an everyday portion of CBD ESSENCE CAPSULES, you can help your body in moments of stress with:
Hemp Taffy is a full-spectrum, industrial CBD hemp extract that feeds the body’s deepest primal systems. It is a tasty candy that also makes you feel better!
BONUS: One more habit that successful people apply to their lives (you have probably heard this many times) is they do not allow the events from the outside world impact them in a negative way. When you get rid of the everyday stress, sleepless nights, and distractions, which, believe me, is a huge waste of time, surprisingly, you will find out that you DO have time for yourself, your family, and your ideas.
Though, just like there is no such thing as “overnight success,” CBD does not perform miracles and will not change your body and its reactions in one day. Therefore, I must tell you, that these effects can only be reached when CBD is taken daily while building cannabinoid systems in your body.
This is an amazing opportunity for you to become the next success story and I really hope you unleash your full potential with it.
