Are you one of those people that would rather look back and say, "I KNOW I could have done it… but I just didn’t…"?
I see this phenomenon in many instances but the most prevalent revolve around relationships and personal growth . How many people do you know that are in stale relationships but won’t move on because of the comfort level? How many have talked about new business ventures or making more money only to stave off because of the comfortable life they have at the moment.
Remember, growth only occurs when our mental boundaries expand.
If something you haven’t done makes you a little uncomfortable (not scares the heck out of you), just think about the positive impact on life the new thing brings to you. Try to push yourself each day.
Try to conquer, yes conquer, something new everyday.
The easiest way to accomplish this is through visualization (and that’s a whole other article in itself)
What are some of your personal hot buttons? What is the worst thing that could possibly happen to you?
Let’s suppose that being “a loser” is high on your totem pole of worst possible things. If you want to lose weight, just say to yourself when you need an extra push, “Only LOSERS are overweight. I am not a loser; therefore, I’ll go to the gym today.”
Of course, this represents a generic example. Other examples could be instances where you’ve seen something very disturbing (like a ruined heart on TV). You can then use that to “influence” you. You obviously don’t want your heart to look like that, do you?
