Today’s Episode Summary:
We all human beings have a problem of taking things for granted. We never acknowledge things that are most important in our life and then comes a day when we suddenly lose something and then we realize that whatever we lost suddenly was a big blessing and now it is no more in our life. We recognize blessings after losing them… That is a harsh truth…. My today’s guest, Daniel Gomez, faced this harsh truth when everything was going great in his life. Everything in his life was great - except his relationship with his wife and family –and then a day happened when he got the news that his wife has cancer. This incident changed his entire life. Now, Daniel strongly advocates prioritizing important things in life above everything else. Today Daniel is sharing with us story of his life and many worth listening lessons.
Daniel is advising people not to put material things before the most important thing in life -that is your family. He says that we are so absorbed in chasing the material world that we ignore our relationships, which is the biggest asset of our life. Remember that chasing the material world is synonymous with chasing the wind. And this has no end. So, don’t be so consumed with your work life that you could never take time for your relationships. Never ever allow money and work to control your whole life. Pay attention to your family and take time to acknowledge your loved ones. Prioritize things that are important in life. Daniel says that my formula of success is that I keep God at first, then my family, and then my work life.
Daniel also says that your kids are the mirrors in which you can see yourself. They are the ones who play a significant role when an adversity hits you because they tell you what you are doing wrong in life. Secondly, you are a role model for your family and your kids learn from you consciously and unconsciously. So be mindful of what kind of model you are presenting to them.
We human beings also try to control things in life and surely when we can’t then we frustrate. We should realize that life is an uncertain thing and we cannot control the events of our life. But if our foundation will be on some solid beliefs then accepting any change or an uncertain event becomes easier. So it is recommended that have faith because faith is a lot better than control.
We human beings are also very selfish. 60% of the time we talk only from our own perspective; ignoring the perspective of other person. When we try to explain things from our own standpoint that is like looking at half picture. We need to understand that looking at the picture from both sides are equally important.
Daniel is also talking about business and what can make your business a success. He says that 90% of the businesses fail in their first year and one of the major reasons for their failure is that they don’t provide better customer service and they don’t provide value. The success of a business depends on how well you treat your customers and your honesty while dealing with them.
Daniel also says that to be successful in business or any other career we need ‘gratitude’. Be grateful instead of complaining because complaining about problems and advertising your miseries in front of other people will stick you more in life. However, gratitude multiplies your opportunities. Gratitude is the key that brings more into your life, so, be grateful for what you have to be successful in life.
Daniel is also talking about having faith in the divine’s plan for you. He says that, have faith that whatever good/bad comes in life has a purpose for your own benefit. Sometimes imperfect situations in life perfect the imperfections of us but we don’t see it. Just because you have failed, doesn’t make you a failure. So, do a favor on yourself: forgive yourself for your mistakes and failures and get up to reach a new level of fulfillment.
Daniel is explaining all that information in detail, so tune in and enjoy this amazing podcast till the end.
