Don't just plant a tree, plant a forrest. Most of us are shifting our focus to the new year with a determination to be better.
Here's a hard truth...
Most will fail. Only 8% of people reach their new years resolutions.
Most wont stick with their lofty goals.
Most will forget what they even wanted.
So how do we separate ourselves from MOST people?
It's simpler than you might think...but it's also one of the hardest things to go.
STOP making new years resolutions, start taking new year actions...Today.
If you want to stop drinking in 2017, don't drink TODAY.
If you want to be a happier person, surround yourself with better people today.
If you want to start a business, take the first step today.
Your brain is TRICKING you into thinking you have to wait till tomorrow, and it's a seductive trick.
Your mind tells you "I can feel better right now by dreaming of being better tomorrow."
And it always feels good to dream.
But dreaming is like candy, it taste good now but it doesn't last long.
What lasts, what do we actually need to do to see results? ACTION.
Taking action today is telling your mind WHO is really in control. The trust is we all have that inner voice telling us to settle, telling us to quit, telling us we can't do it. Why is it there? Nature. Our mind wants us to save energy, because up until recently human as a species just had to survive. Now our brain's survival mechanism is keeping us from thriving, all int he name of saving energy. Humans are naturally lazy, its a survival technique.
If you want to thrive, you have to break our human nature to conserve energy when we don't even need to. Push yourself, and not only survive, but thrive!
Heres to a successful 2017 and beyond.
