In our life we mostly try hard not to follow the simple path. Because we thought with all the might that if what you are doing is easy for you to do then you are doing something wrong. But in life you have learned that the things that are hard of you to do in past become easy by practice. And if you follow the principle of simplicity in your life and eliminate all that is not important then you will find that what you need to do to get the result is easy.
For example it is a popular believe that you have to work out 5 days a week if you want to see some results in your body. But I have been doing 1 day a week of exercise for quite some time and I am in the best shape of my life.
So please do not follow the trend find what work for you. After you have found what works for you even if it is simple as hell to do and still you are getting results then keep doing them.
Because the most important thing is the results not how much you work.
Always think of things that you can reduce from what you are doing and still get better results doing it.
What give the most result?
As I have told you before about my exercise regime and results that I am getting from them. I have been doing that to all the areas of my life. So when I say that you can do less and get more out of your life that is what I meant by that.
Simple things are hard for you to do because you have been told a false that simple things don’t work but they are the things that will get you the most results in your life.
So fight against your programming to do a lot to get a lot. Think, read and experiment with the ways by with you can do less and even then get more results. It will take you some time to find your path but you will be able to find it just keep working towards it.
Go against the general beliefs
The general beliefs that simple things do not work hold you back from what you can really achieve in your life so let them go. It will not be easy and it will not be one time process. You will be attracted again and again to this kind of thinking but you have to keep fighting because then and only then you will be able to get the result that you want in your life without losing your life. So keep working and you will see how this is a better way to live your life.

There a lot of great material out there (The 80/20 Principle: The Secret to Achieving More with Less) that will prove to you that it will work in your life as it has worked in my.
When you live a simple life you will instantly find that you are more happy with your life. Our mind thrive in simplicity if you do not have to think about the task that you have to complete then you can work at a very greater rate.
Your level of happiness will improve with the increase level of productivity and you will be able to earn more because you are now more focused on the things that give you the most money.
You will be more content with your life because you are doing good at the things that you want to do good at. Because you have focused on things that are simple or have become simple for you because of a lot of practice that you have put in it.
Simple things path to mastery
When you repeat one thing again and again with total focus and dedication you are able to get a mastery in the task at hand and you will be able to get better results in the time then others because you have a mastery over the task and being able to make it easy as you have done it so many times before.
Do not quite something just because it is easy
I have seen people in trading because they are easy to do. Even when those things are giving them the results that they want. They just do not do it because it is easy for them to do it. They formed a mental idea that what ever is easy to do is not good.
Let go of ego
Your ego will come in your way when you do things that are easy for you to do. It happen to me in my life I was able to get to the target of writing 1000 words on daily basis it have become so easy of me to do that my mind thought that I should not do it because it is so easy to do. So I increase the target to 3000 words a day and the hole thing fall apart.
Focus on what is important
I have find out that you can get rid of to easy syndrome by focusing on a larger things. Like if you want to become a great trader it will not matter if the method that you follow is easy or not. But the most important things is that can you able to get the result that you want.
Even if the method you are following in your trading is easy and every simple to do. Take a very little time to do it. But give you a result that is better then most of the professionals out there then by all means follow that method. Do not leave that method just because it is to easy to do.
When you start to except that you are doing simple things. Even then you are getting better results. And you are ok that the things are simple for you to do.
Simple things are not per say hard for you to do. But you psychology make hard for you to complete them. It come in the way of you and your task. It create a hinderance in the path to you mastery.
In the end I want to you focus on one and only one thing that is the end result that you getting from what ever you are doing. Do not focus on if it is easy or difficult to do.
