Goal-achieving habits copied from fairy tales


Share this :   | | | |

Once upon a time, in the days of dragons and fairies, an elf visited two couples, and promised that whatever they started doing that day in the morning, they would still be doing at night, and to think carefully about what they did — he promised they could become very wealthy and lead a life of abundance if they were wise about how they used his promise.

One couple began arguing and hitting each other, unable to decide what they should do to build their wealth.

The other couple decided to neaten up while talking over their choices. The wife began folding linens, and the husband counted coins into a cup.

By the end of the day, both couples were still doing the same thing, just as the elf had promised (they really hadn’t listened very well, you see).

The bickering couple were black and blue from hitting each other the entire day, and hoarse from screaming and cursing at each other.

But the other couple now had a home filled with folded linens and overflowing with coins!

The simple lesson from this fairy tale is to start off your day with what you really truly value, and it will keep building for you.

This holds true whether your goals are related to earning money, to having healthy relationships, to achieving a personal goal such as writing a book or composing a new guitar melody.

When we get caught up in arguing, it just leads to disaster.
