Do you want to know what actually separates most ordinary people from the extraordinary? It is the time that they spend during the evening time, usually from 7pm to 11pm. What you do after work and before you sleep actually determine how successful you are.
Most people will just spend their time watching television, surfing the net, updating their Facebook or doing other stuff that will never contribute toward their dreams. On the other hand, if you look closely at those successful people, you will notice that this phenomenon is the other way round.
Successful people will spend time doing something that will benefit their lives and contribute toward their dreams. In other words, they are taking action in the evening, after their work time, and before their sleep time. They will take action and move one step forward.
The Golden 8 Hours
Let’s say that you use 8 hours to sleep and another 8 hours to work, so there will be another 8 hours left. And these 8 hours will be your golden 8 hours of your life. What you do during this period of time will determine how successful you are. It is not to say that you have to keep on working to make even more money during these 8 hours. It all depends on what kind of life you want.
For instance, you can use these golden hours to do something that you love. Such as learning a new language, maybe to learn to speak Korean. Or perhaps you can spend this time together with your friends, spouse, partners, to build even stronger bond with each other. Or you can also use this time to learn a new skill, enhance your public speaking confident, learn how to ride a bike, etc. There are many more things that you can accomplish during these hours.
The sad truth is that most people will just spend these hours doing something that is unproductive and that will never contribute or make them feel alive or meaningful in their lives. Thus, if you seriously want to live a better life, make these 8 golden hours something that you will make the full use.
Just imagine, if you can spend like 2 hours a day to learn a new skill or language, by the end of the year, you would have spent a lot of hours into that subject. And guess what, you will become good at it.
There are many people trying to build their second income by using these golden 8 hours. The simplest way will be to build a blog and try to monetize the blog to generate an additional income from it. It is possible to do this and many people actually make a full-time living just by building and earning from their blogs. You can do the same, start by using your golden hours every day.
Persistent Is The Key
It is possible to achieve great success by just utilizing these 8 hours. Most people know about this, but there is a problem that they cannot overcome, which is their persistence. The one who persist by making good use of this time, will be the one that truly able to create the kind of life that they desire.
You can feel motivated and take action to move toward your dreams and goals in a time, but can you do this every single day? Success can be something simple, but it may not be as easy as you think. It takes a lot of consistent effort and action to build a successful life. As long as you can commit to take action every day by using your golden hours, you can achieve anything that you want.
Of course, try to be flexible and balance in your plan. For example, you can spend 3 days out of a week to build your second income stream, use a day to learn a new skill, another day to spend your precious time with your soul mate, and another 2 days to do something that you love. It depends on your priority, some people will spend most of their time building their business, some people will spend majority of their time with their family or loved ones.
Now you know what you have to do in order to get what you want in your life. Are you ready to commit to do it? Are you ready to take consistent action every day? Or should I say, are you ready to sacrifice your leisure time and to use these time to build for a better future?
