That’s Not How Growth Works
Most people believe that significant change happens overnight. Some big “ah ha” moment happens, and suddenly everything is different. That they’re totally different. You go from being miserable in your life to being cheerfully optimistic and living on the other side of the world.
Nope. That’s not how growth works.
You Must Put in the Work
If you’re waiting for the big “ah ha” moments to grow and quit every time you don’t have one – then you’ll always find yourself quitting. You’ll always find yourself staying in the same place.
Growth isn’t a race. It’s a journey.
You must put in the work every single day.
Growth is Not Sexy
I know, that’s not sexy. It’s not what most people want to hear.
Our society is addicted to instant gratification. They think that something that takes 30 minutes will change them for life.
But real growth takes time and the application of repeated behaviors again and again and again.
It’s Really Simple
The concept is simple. But it’s not easy.
Want to change your thinking? Pay attention to your thoughts and choose different – again and again and again.
Want to be healthier? Choose nourishing foods and get active every day. Make the choice again and again and again.
Want to be a best selling author? Start writing every single day. Write and write and write. Choose your writing again and again. Hone your craft. Get better each day. And eventually, you’ll have one book. Soon you’ll have written many.
The Journey Starts with a Single Step
Life is not a series of huge revelations that result in lasting change. It’s mostly made up of small decisions that lead to big changes. Many many small decisions. Each one getting you closer to your goal.
Like Gandhi said “The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.”
What we fail to realize is that that journey then proceeds with steps 2-10 million. One step at a time is how we get to our goals.
What Are You Choosing?
Wake up every day and choose who you want to be.
Put in even 5 minutes toward being that person every day. And you’ll build unbeatable momentum toward being the person you want to be and having the life you’ve always dreamed of.
“Rome wasn’t built in a day.” And neither was your highest self.
You are unveiled through your repeated decisions.
What are you choosing?
Anxiety. Fear. Playing Small. Stuckness.
You’re living in a prison of your own making.
It’s time to change that forever.
