Winners don’t quit and quitters don’t win
Experts say if you can stick with any activity for 21 days, it has become a habit and if it’s a critical change then it’s likely to have multiplier effects. Have you successfully changed any bad habits or started good ones? or have you decided to be ‘realistic’ and settle for what’s within reach, easily accessible. Someone said, the tragedy isn’t that we set our goals too high and we fail to reach them but that we set them too low and actually attain them.
It’s amazing how easy it is to settle after a nice house, car and a few trips abroad. Without meaning to let it show, your friends let it show that they’re envious and it’s a great feeling to know that people you once envied are returning the favour. Sure, there are things you dreamed of which you haven’t even neared but your friends don’t know this and you are not about to burst their picture of your perfect life, no matter how hard maintaining your facade is! Better their adoration than their contempt.
Picture yourself 50 years from now, you are grey, weak and bent. You can’t just get up and go as you please. Every movement is painful, so you have to plan every step to ensure minimum pain. Imagine you are in a question and answer with your children and grandchildren. What would you most regret not achieving? What would be your greatest achievement? What would you like them to know just by looking at your choices and actions?
Everyone is tempted at some point to SETTLE for less than their abilities or dreams. But you’ll never be truly happy if you do. What are you settling for?
This week’s task
Identify one habit that breaking or starting will bring you closer to your dream. It can be as simple as cutting TV during the week or meeting up with friends that inspire you once a week, reading more, planning on paper not your head…The world is waiting, go shine
