  1. 1. The Daily Practice
  2. 2. Choose Yourself A book by James Altucher
  3. 3. Why is the Daily Practice required? • Daily Practice is required to achieve the following goals in life • If you want to be happy • If you want to eradicate unhappiness in your life • If you want each day to be as smooth as possible without any hassle • If you want to go to sleep in the night with a smile on your face, everyday • If you have hit rock bottom and you want to bounce
  4. 4. What is the Daily Practice? • Keeping the following four bodies healthy on a daily minute by minute basis • Physical Body • Emotional Body • Mental Body • Spiritual Body
  5. 5. Physical Body • We all know how important our physical body is • Don’t look at your body as some short term goal and go on crash diets • Care for it on a daily, minute by minute basis • No junk food, seven to nine hours sleep, EXERCISE • Avoid excess alcohol
  6. 6. Emotional Body • Learn to be positive, surround yourself with positive people • It’s IMPORTANT to avoid people who bring you down, don’t be cruel, avoid engaging or dwelling • Energy leaks out of you if someone is draining you
  7. 7. Emotional Body • How do you do this? • Acknowledge • Observe • Find out ways to engage less • The pain will begin to wither • Don’t be cruel
  8. 8. Mental Body Your mind wants to be the BOSS. It makes you keep thinking crappy stuff, it makes you obsess, worry, fear, be depressed, more thinking … and eventually! ! BURNOUT!
  9. 9. Mental Body • You need to tame your mind otherwise it will make you a slave • How do you tame? By making it tired, by sweating it, by completely utilising it • Set goals, make lists, come up with ideas, tire your mind and do this EVERYDAY • Come up with ten business ideas • Ten ways you can find more time for yourself • Ten ways I can make money RIGHT NOW
  10. 10. Spiritual Body Do not time travel.
  11. 11. Spiritual Body • What is time travelling? • Obsessing on past regrets • or about future anxieties • These are memories and speculation. You CANNOT control these • Do not time travel, live right now
  12. 12. Spiritual Body • Money Worries • Relationship Fears • Insecurities • How will tomorrow be? • Will I be judged because of yesterday? • All of this doesn’t exist. It’s your mind pretending.
  13. 13. Spiritual Body • Most people think the word “Spiritual” means “God” or “Religion”, that’s not true. It means to not time travel, to live in the present • Pray - for a few seconds of the day just be thankful • Meditate - try meditation for a few minutes everyday, it’s not that hard • Being grateful - think of everyone in your life you are grateful for • Forgiving - picture everyone who has done you wrong. Forgive them.
