There’s 24 hours in a day. No more, no less. We all have the same amount of time. This is both exciting and kind of daunting when you consider people who have done so many incredible things, because there are times when I ask myself what I’m missing. But that’s okay. Because it’s in those moments I realize that even though I’m not where I want to be I’m moving forward. Forward progress is what truly matters. Making the hard decisions today that will impact not only your life today, but even more dramatically in the future.
In training people from all different walks and from all different areas, I’ve found one common theme: change comes only when someone wants it.
Sounds simple enough right? But when I say “wants it”, I’m not talking about the “I want that donut” or “I want to take a nap”.
There is a want, a yearning that goes far beneath the surface that you have to tap into if you want to bring any kind of long lasting change. While this may sound exciting, it’s in reality painful. It takes digging, and digging deep, it takes pulling off the layers of all the crap that tries to tie you down and tell you that you are destined to fail. It takes ripping apart all the self doubt, and stepping out of that old self and determining in your mind and in your soul that you want this change beyond anything else.
So stop playing games with what you want, and truly dig into what it is you truly want and how badly you want it.
