All to often a a kid growing up you here the adults say, ‘life goes quick and one day you’ll wake up and your old’.
And to some degree we all see and feel this… Our birthdays seem to come around ever so fast year upon year. Easter, Christmas and long-weekends all seem to flow into one another…
So begs the question- how do you take control of your life and ultimately achieve the great things you want, without life slipping away on you?
Want to know the real answer? Little steps. Boring, non significant consistent little steps…
I say this all the time and for those people who don’t know me they only see my life where is now. They haven’t seen the years of hard work and sleepless night constantly chipping away at building a business or training my technique. I’ve said it before and it’s totally worth saying here nobody wakes up one day and their life is suddenly different. Life is not like that… The world is not like that let nature explain it. The biggest tree in the world didn’t sprout from the ground last week, it’s lived many years of drought, flood, fires and wind. The huge whales of the ocean didn’t just grow that big over night, they have to go an search for food from the day they are born and they have to survive against other predators, only the tough survive this process. You will not wake up one day no matter how much you wish and your world be changed for you. The only way you change your world is to take action every day and make it real.
#1 Like I’ve talked about before if you’re not aiming at a target with an arrow or reaching for a goal in life how can you expect to achieve anything or hit any targets. So get you goal sorted… Pick anything like I said before also you don’t have to know if it’s right or not just pick something you want and start working towards that…
#2 Surround yourself with those people who raise you up in life and want the best for you! Your life is passing you by remember so don’t waste it with people who dampen your good moods. This too doesn’t have to be real people surround yourself, make your environment support you… Read books on successful people, watch inspiring videos etc
#3 Remember your life is going to at 50 soon… You have to walk if you want to go anywhere which means you need to take action in life to have reaction. You need things to be real and tangible in life not pretend and imaginary. Find a way to take real action towards your goal, learn to go and talk to random people you’ll never know who you meet and where they might connect you. Challenge yourself regularly and keep life fresh, when times start to become comfortable and lazy your age of 50 is coming quicker.
For the note to finish on ‘your either green and growing or ripe and rotting’. You can change your state any day you like.
“Stay young stay foolish”.
