Why do we get out of bed in the morning?
Why do we, or why don’t we, give our very best each day?
Worrying about the why is the most important worry.
For example, why hadn’t I written the book sooner, say 10, 20, or 30 years ago?
Why is it so excited to be publishing now?
So yeah, it felt amazing to order those books.
ignore postpone this for 34 years?
Why? Fear. Excuses.
Regret is birthed in the dark corners of our excuses.
What’s your why?
Midlife boot camp in a book? What would that look like? Feel like? Sound like?
What does boot camp mean?
Why was it invented?
Who trains the instructors?
And who’s crazy enough to propose it could be had from a book?
The only way I know to stay motivated all the time is to stay motivated all the time.
Talking is easy. Doing is difficult – maybe impossible we tell ourselves.
There is a new book on Amazon that calmly and quietly suggests we never again tell ourselves these lies.
Do what you say you are going to do. Otherwise we are left with excuses and regret.
There is a second opportunity that most, if not all, of us wait our entire lives for – permission.
The second opportunity is Mid Life Celebration.
What does it take to improve ourselves during midlife? And do we care? Are we motivated?
Funny how the smallest of changes can add up to make something good, better. A book manuscript. A life.
It works in the opposite direction too. Small things (even as small as not changing) can make something good, not so good.
Torn between two things with the new Mid Life Celebration book:
- Being in control of the promises we make to ourselves
- Feeling (unhealthy) attachment to how others perceive our promises
Mid Life Celebration: rethink • reprioritize • recommit will have some people cheering, some crying, and some denying.
But no one can say the book is lying.
