|3 Keys to Ruling the World|
|There are, of course, more than 3 keys to ruling the world. And we doubt you are reading this article because you really want to. However, we think these 3 paradigm shifts will help you become one of the most impactful people ANY OF YOUR FRIENDS HAVE EVER MET!|
2. Move from conflict avoidant to conflict engaging: All great characters have to go through conflict. Without conflict, stories are boring and characters don't change. Real-life people are the same. The more we avoid conflict, the less impact we will have. Are you avoiding conflict? Procrastinating? Not reconciling with somebody? Write down three things you are avoiding, tackle them today, and tomorrow you'll be living with less stress. And you'll have an enormous amount of self-respect. Great characters engage conflict peacefully and easily.
3. Choose meaning over pleasure: Pleasure isn't always bad. In fact, pleasure is mostly good. But when pleasure drives us, we end up living sad stories. Our ambitions should be more meaningful. When we choose what we want our lives to be about, we would do better to choose relational endeavors. Sure, it's okay to make a lot of money. But if our lives are all about making money, we won't contribute much to the well being of our loved ones. Make your ambitions heartfelt. Choose to want a great marriage, to have a well-loved family, to be a supportive listener, to be a protective leader. Make each of your ambitions count by connecting them to the well-being of others.
