What do you want to accomplish right now?
What actions do you need to take to achieve your goal?
Are you willing to commit to the goals?
If you really want to get good at something it’s simple. Not easy, but simple.
Just do this one thing that you have to work on, every day.
Spend xx minutes on it every day and given time you will have success.
Whatever you want to achieve, habit and time is always the most important to have massive success.
Myself I want to be a writer, so I write every day.
These last couples of days I’ve written every day. Maybe 600-1600 words a day and reading the rest of my time. Doing some errands around town approaching some girls and had an instant coffee date.
something that that struck me yesterday when I was out for a walk, was how my mind is focused and ready for action. I could easily start talking with everyone. A regular day off work, if I haven’t done much I might feel sluggish and would take effort to go out and go do x. I would be more inside my own head.
With the habit of creating and producing I was feeling great, and still do.
And it came to me now just as I was about to shower and thinking whether I would start with a warm shower and end with cold, or go full cold immediately. It was an easy choice as I put it to full blast on cold. And then my thought suddenly came back to me, how all these small habits off getting outside of your comfort zone adds up and makes you think in whole new different ways.
Just one second ago if I would have take the easy way and went with a warm shower, would I be writing this for you now? Maybe, certainly not with these thoughts I have now.
The more you produce and work, the more energy you get.
How could that be?
When you create you are active.
When you consume you are passive.
What do I mean by consume?
To consume is using or watching others work. Like TV shows, magazines, video games and porn. It puts your mind to autopilot and makes at least me sluggish if I spend to much time on it.
Your sexual energy is your key to success, and you drain it if you bust a nut every time you watch porn.
How much is to much time? Depending on the subject I start to drop off after 45 minutes and lose my focus. And at that point it gets harder to break out of. Keep in mind: Depending of how busy you are, that 45 minutes could be your only free time to work on your goal today.
By consuming 45 minutes on a busy day, you are standing still. For every day you are standing still, the harder you have to work to get started again.
- When you are creating and active it tends to have a snowball effect.
Example: Your biggest hurdle is getting of your couch and doing the dishes. It’s really not that great doing the dishes. But you know it will feel good when you’ve done it.
Action: You get up from the couch and do the dishes. Great! It wasn’t that hard, really quite simple and now your in such a good mood that you will take out the trash when you’ve just finished the dishes and that project that is due? You will start it immediately!
If you would have stayed in your couch for another 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours and suddenly its time to brush your teeth and go to bed. You would probably feel bad that you still haven’t done the dishes and know how you will feel tomorrow as you get home from work and need to prepare dinner in a messy kitchen and your project that is due is not done. But you did it.
The simple act of starting your first task was quite hard at first, but quite simple once you started. And now you are doing a second and third task with a cheerful attitude.
What can you create?
You know what you want to create. You just fear to take the leap if you haven’t started yet.
If you really don’t know yet. Look at your lifestyle.
Are you living your dream?
If you don’t have a direction for your life and lifestyle, it’s hard to set a 30 day challenge because you need a vision for your life. Just doing x “because” gives you less reason to complete it. Begin first imagine your dream life.
Comment below or write in a journal what your goals are for this 30 day challenge.
Its important that you write your goals down.
Make a drawing in your journal or on the cover with your goals. Really think of your goals, what are they? Now imagine how you can take that goal and make it into a small image you draw or type out. Hold this image before you and see your goal and what steps you are taking to reach it. Draw it every day to remind yourself of your goal.
Now do your habit for 30 days.
Example: Got an guitar hanging on the wall that you want to learn how to play, or get better at?
Why do you want to play the guitar? Maybe it’s a special song you want to learn or play with your friends. Write down why.
Now write down how you will learn it and break it down in to small steps.
Action: Get up, take it down and practice your first task on your list for 5 minutes. After your 5 minutes are up, continue if you want to.
Change is gradual
Decide on a 30 day challenge.
Take small steps
Start with 5 minutes every day
This feels good and you probably continue past your 5 minutes
Now you start to build momentum by doing this task every day and add some time every day.
The simple habit of practice at least 5 minutes every day builds over time.
Once you’ve reached a tipping point of small habits every day, now it’s hard for you to not do this habit. It’s become a part of your life.
Resist the urge of instant gratification and work on your desire.
If you lose your self on your 30 day challenge, go 30 more days.
Success won’t come over night, but these small habits build up and one day you will wake up and be successful.
Tell me what is your 30 day challenge?
