Most of us went to school and learned thousands of things… some of them useful, some interesting, but the real question is how many of these things we actually apply in our life? We read a book and we put it back on the shelf – how many times have you put in practice what you learned in the book? We hear a piece of good advice from a very good friend, but we second guess wherever we should act on it.
We love staying in our cosy comfort zone and we’re the best excuse-finders when comes to acting on getting out of our comfort zone, but the truth is we never grow, we never find out what’s on the other side of fear and excuses. Sometimes we feel stuck with our life, not realising it’s down to us to make the change, or should I say refusing to believe we have the power to change our life because it’s so much easier to stay in our comfy zone and find excuses for not doing what we have to do in order to improve our life.
So, my question is: Do you want change?
– No: very well, stay in your comfort zone and next year this time you’ll be in the same place.
– Yes: How Bad?
– I don’t know: then you need to find yourself a goal worth your life, a goal so big that will blow your mind.
– Very bad: good! then do this:
In your notebook, or if you have a work diary or planner, write down 6 things to do tomorrow towards achieving your goal. 6 things that you believe will help you achieve your goal and write them down. In the evening, take a few minutes to go through the 6 tasks you must complete the next day and priorities them, then close your eyes and visualize yourself celebrating the completion of the 6 tasks. Do this every evening until you have achieved your goal. It’s been proven that a plan visualized before going to sleep, sinks into the subconscious mind, which, while you sleep, works into creating solutions and helps you complete the tasks quicker.
The next day, as you go on with your day, take each one of them in the order of their priority and complete them one by one. Do not go to the next task unless you’ve completed the previous one, do not rearrange them, and do not skip them. “There is no such thing as something for nothing” and this is what you have to give in order to receive.
Don’t second guess your plan and don’t overthink it! The more you procrastinate, the fewer chances you have to achieve it. You only fail when you are afraid of failing. The fear itself will create failure. Be brave! This is your chance to succeed. This is your first step towards success, and this is the right time to act on it. If you’re in doubt or don’t know what to do, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will gladly help you.
Be strong and committed to these steps for 28 days and once we’re past it, we’ve extended our comfort zone and incorporated the success in it. It will feel like walking, talking, eating and any other habit you’re doing on a daily basis. Do it for you and for those you love and you want to help.
Thank you for reading.
Love and Peace!
