This week on Winning In Life, Angus Pryor the #1 Google-ranked dental marketer in Australia will be sharing with you 3 questions that you can ask yourself to turn your mind and adjust your life a bit better.
How would your life change if you knew the answer to this question? Now, look, last Friday, we had an event with our clients and I ran a little session called optimising your life. I feel like in the midst of what’s going on in Australia at the moment, this is something for us to really think about.
And I posed actually three questions, not one, things that make it hard for us to impact how we live our lives. And the first question is, when will you die? And I’m sorry to be so morbid, but the truth is, we just don’t know that answer. Do we? And I have heard people say, you know, you should live every day as though it was your last. And I get the sentiment although I think practically that’s not really happening, is it? I mean, if today was my last day, sorry, I’m probably not making this video for you.
If today was your last day, you probably not going to work. But you can’t do that sustainably. I mean, the life expectancy in Australia is over 80 now. So there was one question. The other question that I think is really curious one for us to consider is the tension of now versus later.
You know, I’ve been working outside and I’m pretty tired to be quite honest. And I’m thinking, well, I could spend the rest of the day sitting on the couch watching telly eating junk food. And you know, maybe I’ve done a lot of exercise today, maybe it’s sort of balanced itself out. But if I’m doing that all the time, then you know, what that means is ultimately I’m going to become less healthy. So when are you going to die? The tension of now versus later.
And the third one is, do you know what you’re actually capable of? Thomas Edison, the creator of the light bulb said, If you knew what you were capable of, you would literally astound yourself. So there’s some questions for you to think about. Now. I don’t, I don’t have any answers necessarily.
But I think if we can ask ourselves better questions, then it turns our mind to maybe we would adjust our lives a bit better. If we think about what am I really capable of? You know, I’m going to die someday. What is it that I’m going to look back on with regret? And how do I balance enjoying the now versus doing things today they’re going to help my tomorrow.
