Everyone has a goal – something they want to shoot for.
Do you invest time into it every day?
Many people want to do this or that, but they don’t ever “get around to it”.
And if you ask why, they’ll list plenty of reasons, but if you look underneath those reasons, you’ll usually find one cause:
Fear of risk. Fear of failure. Fear of looking silly. Fear of standing out. Fear of being ridiculed.
But, when you think about it, what is life?
At its essence, life is a back-and-forth cycle.
We have good, then the bad comes. We have night, then day. We have birth, and then we have death.
So, life is like a pendulum. It swings from one end to the other then back again.
And while people want this end – the GOOD parts, they’ll go to extreme lengths to avoid that end – the bad parts.
And this bad end usually scares the bejeezus out of them. So much so that they don’t want to act at all, because things might swing that way.
But, I’m saying you should embrace that end.
For example, if you’re in sales, set a goal to go out and see how many “No’s” you can get today. Try to break yesterday’s record.
If you’re learning an instrument, see how fast you can get to 100 wrong notes.
Because life is a pendulum.
The harder you embrace this side (the bad side), the quicker it’ll swing back and get to this side where the good resides.
And the faster you’ll reach your goal.
