Let’s face it, we all have residences, okay? We have a physical place to stay. But the problem is, not all of us have a mental residence. I know, that sounds crazy, right? Because after all, we all have, at some level or another, some possession of our mental faculties.
What do I mean by this? Well, it’s actually quite simple. Look at your assumptions and expectations. Are they truly yours? This should stop you in your tracks. You should be able to look at the things that you believe to be true and see the DNA of your parents, your teachers, your friends, and your family members.
If you dig deep enough, you probably will discover that a lot of this stuff is not yours. In fact, don’t be surprised if all of it came from somewhere else.
Now, this is a serious problem because if you want to truly live a life worth living, you have to take full ownership of your mental residence. That’s where you live. That’s where you operate. That’s where everything happens because from this place, this mental place, what you think, what you say, what you do, and your effect on the world are formulated.
And unfortunately, we don’t own our mental residences. Far from it. We automatically absorb them from others. We pick them along the way without thinking, and then they eat into us. They slow us down. They hold us back. They prevent us from living the lives that we are otherwise capable of living.
You have to select the best residences. It’s not much different from the residences in condominium complexes in Singapore. When people buy into these residences, they are buying into the very best. These steel and glass structures highlight all that is best, amazing and cutting edge about Southeast Asia. It truly is a sight to behold.
And as impressive as it is, what makes it truly awesome is the amount of will that had to be expended to make the residences happen. You see, the big difference between rich people and poor people is what they do with their willpower. People waste it on just getting by. Isn’t it time to dream big? Isn’t it time to demand more of yourself?
You may be thinking to yourself, well, the Residences is located in Singapore. It’s a very expensive place, and so on and so forth. In other words, you’re feeding yourself excuse after excuse. It’s no surprise that you’re struggling. It’s no surprise that you feel life has passed you by.
Well, you can turn things around. You can focus on getting a spot at Residences. Now, it’s a good investment. Regardless of what your ultimate motive is, it’s a good investment because the price you pay now is actually going to be cheap compared to what it will be worth in a few years. So that’s not the issue.
The big challenge here is to focus on a big goal, let’s say, making $10 million a year or buying a Residences unit, and then moving heaven and hell to get there. That is the key to truly getting your life together because it takes focus and it takes planning. In other words, all the different systems that you are composed of mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, have to be aligned for you to produce that tangible effect.
So a lot of people buy Ferraris and status symbols to say to people, “hey, look at me, I’ve arrived.” But when you buy the residences, you can buy it because it pushes you to be your very best because you have it in you.
There’s really no difference between you and somebody who’s very rich. You all have the same hardware. You all have the same amount of time in any given day. The only difference is your mental choices. And the great thing about locking into a very big goal is that your mental choices are directed, they’re purposeful, and they have a reason. So do this today.
