On the River Gran, among The Quadi

While encamped with his armies on the River Gran on Rome’s northern frontiers— now river Hron in Slovakia  the Emperor sat down to write short words of wisdom to himself, reflecting on the wartime, from challenges to solutions, against the Germanic tribe known as The Quadi.

He stayed on the front line until the climax of his wars against The Quadi. The tribesmen were unable to break the Roman formations, and superior Roman discipline won in close-quarter fighting. By the end of AD 172, his victory over the Marcomanni led to Marcus being given the title “Germanicus”.

“Remember how long you’ve been putting this off, how many extensions the gods gave you, and you didn’t use them. At some point, you have to recognize what world it is that you belong to; what power rules it and from what source you spring; that there is a limit to the time assigned you, and if you don’t use it to free yourself, it will be gone and will never return.”

Procrastination, Putting Things Off, Avoiding or Not Starting Something

Are you a chronic procrastinator? Or just occasionally indulge in the habit of procrastination? Either way, it’s something that can delay your moments of future happiness and achievement. And worst of all, procrastination causes anxiety and increases stress and worry unnecessarily.

I can resonate with him on this thought. The reality of running a business is that sometimes you have to do things you may not love to do. And it’s so tempting to just do something else.

Anything else than what you need to focus on. And then there’s also overwhelm, lack of motivation and inspiration that shows up and gets in the way of productive work. Whatever reasons, there are NLP tools that can help you beat procrastination like The Philosopher King:

Release Anxiety Around Making Plans

Just the thought of having to complete a project is so daunting at times. And that tiny thought itself is enough to procrastinate and postpone getting things started. Tapping aka EFT is an amazing way to let go of anxiety and feel more motivated to take action and get things done. It also gives many of the same benefits of acupuncture without the needles! We simply tap on the same acupuncturist points with our fingertips—while venting, letting the body feel happier.

 

Meet Your Future With Time Management

Goals are an integral part of our life and an essential part of NLP. If you want to improve your ability to execute on your goals, T.I.M.E. will help you achieve the goals you set! This video walks you through how to put SMART goals in your holographic future so that you’re subconsciously making all the right decisions to get there. The technique works wonders.

 

 Free Yourself from Self-Doubt

“The human mind is like a fertile ground where seeds are continuously planted.” Subliminal audios help new positive beliefs that take you closer to your goals take root in your subconscious mind. Best to listen while sleeping, when your mind is most receptive to change. For added benefit, listen to one with binaural beats. This is a science discovered in 1939 by a German psychologist. Binaural beats’ encourage healing through music and sound.

 

Have Daily Quiet Spiritual Time

What are your mornings like? Do you do any spiritual exercises? If you don’t, you need to try one. This is another useful tool for wellbeing, productivity and happiness. There are lots of simple daily spiritual practices that will reassure you on how much the universe has your back.

 

I hope you’ll apply the techniques in your life. And, read the book to understand Marcus fully.
