THIS 3 STEP EQUATION WILL SOLVE ALL YOUR PROBLEMS


May. 21, 2019 Jay Shetty

In this new age of self-care, we so often claim anything that we do when we are stressed as self-care. But are we truly giving ourselves the self-care we need? Or are we just being self-indulgent? In this week’s episode, I break down the difference between self-care and self-indulgence and share a 3 part equation that will help you solve all of your problems.

The Cliff Notes:

  • Problems make us stronger.
  • There’s a fine line between self-care and self-indulgence
  • We have to create an equation that doesn’t keep repeating itself
  • #1 – Problems
  • #2 – Time
  • You can’t change the amount of time you have in a day – but we can change what we do with our time
  • #3 – Knowledge
  • All of our problems always appear unsolvable at first
  • Problems are all based on perspective
  • Avoiding growth fosters anxiety
  • Always use your time to focus on growing knowledge
  • 3 Ways to acquire knowledge: reflecting, learning, experimenting
  • How can I add purpose and passion to what I’m doing today?
  • Millionaires don’t watch TV
  • 6 Steps to applying this principle
  • #1 – Ask, is this a real problem?
  • #2 – Accept it’s a problem
  • #3 – Attain knowledge
  • #4 – Attention split
  • #5 – Action into small steps
  • #6 – Amend

“We can either be consumed by time and avoid our problems or use time to deal with our problems.” – Jay Shetty
