Interesting Habit the Wealthy Share

by Doug Blomstrom

As a Network marketer, you are constantly reading or hearing how to improve your marketing, your outlook, your attitude, and of course, yourself. Some ideas really make an impact and others take a while to kind of get into the brain and make an impression.

Like the one I recently heard mentioned on a Training Call: “ one thing that many successful people do is keep a journal.”

I guess when I heard that my thoughts wandered back to being a teenager and keeping a “secret diary”. But that was not exactly what had been discussed. They were talking about journaling being more than briefly writing down thoughts and ideas – about it being a blueprint for success if done with some serious consideration.

The following article titled Unusual Commonality of the Wealthy by Rob Minton gives great tips for journaling like a pro and making it a useful tool to achieve your goal.

Did you know some very famous and/or wealthy people share a very unusual commonality. This commonality is "journaling." Journaling is defined by the Free Dictionary as... "A personal record of occurrences, experiences, and reflections kept on a regular basis; a diary."

Now I realize this might sound a little "foo-foo" to some.

However, you might be surprised to know that Richard Branson and Jim Rohn are all known journalers. Jim Rohn's reasoning was as follows: "Life rewards the serious student."

Rohn used his journal to study life. In fact, Jim Rohn used to spend a lot of money on high-quality leather journals. He was once asked, "Why do you spend so much on an empty book?" His reply, "I intend to put something very valuable inside." I sure do miss Jim.

Most people think of journaling as writing daily in a diary. This could be one use of a journal, but there are several more ways that journaling may transform your life:

1. To track your progress towards goals you've set for yourself. In Michael Mastersons recent book, "The Pledge" he shared that he journals daily. One of the things he tracks monthly in his journal is his net worth. The reason why is because he knows that what you measure improves. By consistently tracking his net worth in his journal, he is able to make better decisions that lead him closer to his financial goals.

2. Keep a record of great business or investing ideas. If you're like me, you come across great business and investing ideas on a routine basis. Unfortunately these great ideas slip through our fingers quickly if they're not captured.

3. Sort out problems or challenges. Facing a big problem in your life? Spend some time writing about it in your journal. List everything you can do to improve the situation and track your progress. I promise this little process will relieve a ton of stress and keep you focused on progress.

4. Document mistakes made and lessons learned. It's obviously not a good idea to make the same mistake twice. You can use a journal to detail mistakes you've made and what you've learned from these mistakes. More importantly, you can make notes about how you can prevent this mistake from happening again.

5. Record things you want to teach your children. Our main job as parents is to prepare our children for adulthood. This isn't an easy task. I've found it helpful to document lessons I want my children to learn before they're on their own. I also list various ideas that I might be able to use to help them learn the particular lesson.

6. List things you want to do in your life (aka...your bucket list). What do you want to do? Where do you want to go? What to you want to see? What do you want to learn? Use your journal to document all of these things and make sure you review them regularly.

7. Capture special life moments. One of the coolest benefits of journaling is what you leave behind for your family. Your children, grand children and great grandchildren will be able to read your journals and "see" who you were as a person. They'll be able to relive your special moments. More importantly, they can learn from what you share in your journal. Maybe, think of your journal as a "Family Life Book" that could be passed down from generation to generation.

8. Detail quotes that inspire you. Wouldn't it be cool to have one place to record every inspirational quote you read? Guess what, simply add them to your journal and you can quickly get your hands on them when needed!

9. Track and evaluate marketing ideas for your business. You can use your journal to draft new marketing campaigns and lead generation advertisements. You can also use it to track the results of marketing experiments and see which advertisements work best.
There are numerous ways you can use a journal to enhance and improve your life. The trick is to just get started. You don't need an expensive journal like Jim Rohn used. You can use an in-expensive spiral notebook, Microsoft Word or Google Documents as your journal. The type of journal you ultimately use doesn't matter.

What matters is who you become when you journal.

What matters is that you review what you've written periodically and use your journal to improve your life from year to year.

To our Success!
