I remember my grandma's favorite story was about how everything costs two cents when she was young but now everything constantly got more expensive and it was all because of the government these uneducated pigs didn't know how to control prices and when I was privileged enough to hear the story her complaining would last for hours and hours and that's exactly what reactive people do they always focus on the things that they cannot control it's not possible
00:33
that a concept like inflation would exist and if it did it's impossible that they wouldn't know about it on the other hand proactive people realized look even if my complaining were completely objective it doesn't help me so I'm going to focus on what I can control if a proactive person owns a business where he sells a product instead of focusing on how people these days don't appreciate good products anymore and how the government has horrible regulations he focuses on how can I improve my

product so my customers can't live without it do you realize how much responsibility how much dedication how much hard work comes along with asking that question and what do you think our effort minimizing brain is going to pick as default that is exactly why most people focus on the things that they cannot control rather than focusing on the things that they can habit number one is be proactive now imagine you're at a Funeral but this one's different from all the funerals you've ever been

to you're standing over the casket and you see yourself what do you have to say about yourself this is one of the most powerful questions you could ask are you doing the things in your life which are aligned with what you want to be able to say do you want to say that you are a good spouse if that's the case how does coming home and instantly being negative towards your spouse affect that do you want to be remembered as a person who added value to society if that's the case are you doing the things that will allow you to say that or are you scared of failure and choose comfortable
02:06
mediocrity instead almost every one of us will have to readjust how we live when we asked this question habit number two is begin with the end in mind now if I were to ask you what are the most important things to you the most common answers I would get would be either your well-being or your relationships your family your spouse your children you would never ever say organizing papers or watching TV but how many of us spend more time organizing papers and watching
02:38
TV then planning our nutrition and going to the gym or cultivating a healthy family environment there's a horrible disconnect between what we say and how we actually allocate our time habit number three is put first things first now imagine you're an author and I'm an author and we both write interesting books and we both have access to an audience of about a hundred thousand people I read your book and I love it so I decide to share it with my audience and as a result you now have thousands of people buying your book and reading
03:12
your ideas you see this and think who is this guy let me take a look at his book you start reading my book and think I have ideas that are valuable so you decide to share it with your audience and as a result I now have thousands of people buying my book and reading my ideas notice how different this is from my creating a little creepy Amazon account finding your book and leaving a bad review hoping that this will deter a few people from buying your book which will in turn somehow get them to buy my book habit
03:43
number four is think win-win stop thinking of everything as a zero-sum game for you to win another person does not have to lose something I want my viewers to do is to subscribe to my channel but you will never hear me say well I worked really hard guys I dedicated so many hours to this please subscribe look who cares if I worked hard who cares if I've spent days creating this video the real questions are does it offer
04:14
value to you and why should you dedicate your time to subscribing when you could be doing anything else that you want habit number five is something that I try to use every single day with every interaction that I have and with every comment that I reply to and it is this seek first to understand then to be understood now imagine there are two people and a tree with five apples on it they're both too short to reach the apples but if one of them sits on the other shoulders he can reach all five of
04:44
the apples this is called synergy the whole is greater than the sum of its parts now I'll be the first one to admit that you can't achieve this with everyone but you should always be looking for opportunities to create synergy with every synergistic opportunity you create you can gather many more apples than you otherwise would by yourself habit number six is synergize a man has been trying to cut down a tree for hours and after a while his neighbor can't take it anymore
05:16
goes over and says you know if you sharpen the saw you will be able to cut it down faster and the man replies but sharpening the saw is going to take time now we might laugh at this story but we do the same thing all the time we can't find 30 minutes a day four times a week to go to the gym our health deteriorates to a point where we're physically incapable of being effective we can't read a book for 15 minutes a day and mentally stimulate ourselves No these
05:47
things take too much time and then we have the audacity to ask for little tips and tricks on how to be effective it's like telling your engineer don't worry about the foundation where can we get the magic bricks that will float in the air habit number seven is sharpen the saw and these are the seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
