The Secret to Living is Learning How to Die
Listen -- I know how hard it is to make changes in your life.
I know how frustrating it can be to watch yourself go through the same cycle of saying you're going to do something, maybe following through a few times, finding an excuse to go of course one time, and then looking back a few weeks or months later to see that you've found yourself in the same situation all over again.
I've been there and still find myself there sometimes.
In my finances.
In my diet.
In my spiritual practices.
It happens to all of us. And firstly I want you to know that IT'S OKAY.
The difference between the people that we idolize as being successful and those that aren't isn't some magical capability to do things perfectly or some stroke of luck.
Successful people have just learned that the secret to success is to keep trying until they succeed.
It's really that simple.
But that doesn't mean that they keep taking the same actions over and over again expecting different results.
That's the definition of insanity.
Every time you realize that something isn't working (i.e. it's not producing the results you want), it's time to try something different -- even if that something different is sticking with what you're doing because you always find that you give up as soon as things get hard.
And you keep doing that until you find what does work.
For me, one of my biggest breakthroughs was realizing and accepting the fact that I can't do this all on my own. And even if I could it was going to take me five times as long with 10 times the pain and discomfort.
Once I started seeking out help from coaches, mentors, books, courses, friends, and family, I was able to start accelerating my growth and more easily breaking the cycles that kept leading to the results I didn't want.
It's amazing what happens when you share your goals with someone that's been in your shoes before and figured out a way to get the results you've been looking for. I often find that just the process of seeking help initiates the journey that leads you to making lasting improvements in your life.
Getting the right answers starts with asking the right questions.
So my invitation for you is to look at the areas in your life that aren't where you want them to be and, instead of asking HOW to fix it, ask yourself WHO has overcome these challenges that I can seek guidance from.
And I'll be honest, sometimes that person is staring right back at you in the mirror. You just have to realize that you already have the potential to BECOME that person that's made it to the other side of the challenges you're facing.
If you need some guidance of course I'm here to help and you can schedule a free coaching call with me and I'd love to learn more about your goals and point you in the right direction.
To finish, I just want to leave you with something to ponder/meditate over:
The same person will keep doing the same things. In order to do different things you need to become a different person.
The old you has to die in order for the new you to be born.
The secret to living is learning how to die.
