Why did i fail so predictably in the past? And why i no longer do.
- Wasn’t willing to fight like hell for it
- Denied, unintentionally, that i was more comfortable not changing
- Didn’t feel guilty in failing because so many others failed too
- Subconsciously was afraid of what i’d have to commit to if i succeeded
The awakening came when i became a teacher and i saw so many teachers who only preached what should be done, but were too weak to practice it themselves.
i became disgusted with living a lie.
And that was the catalyst that changed everything.
It really comes down to overcoming the victim mentality, which proliferates and justifies excuses – it literally is like being a blind man and then, miraculously, having your eyesight restored.
On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
