Change is a competitive advantage

Can we be so comfortable being uncomfortable that we don’t even remember what being uncomfortable is like?

Change is a competitive advantage. Change your thoughts so that all of them are positive and you have a huge competitive advantage over the person you used to be.

Who you used to be has been secretly holding you back.

Not any more.

Congrats.

Create versus consume

Create versus consume?

Life changed when writing became more important than reading.

Make no mistake, i continue to read like my life depends on it.

But writing has controlling interest (51% versus 49%).

Creating versus consuming conditions your brain to be a participant not a spectator.

Approach and avoidance messages

Look for the chipped paint or look for the smiley face? Photo: Hotel parking garage next to Goucher College.

Read yesterday’s message in the next paragraph…

You will never reach your potential, and discover your purpose, by staying in your comfort zone.

Now, read today’s version, rewritten with an approach mindset rather than an avoidance mindset (above)…

You will always reach your potential, and discover your purpose, by getting out of your comfort zone.

Feel the difference?

In the last few weeks, it’s been nagging me that my traditional approach leads with avoidance. Casually, yet with decent intentionality, i’ve been playing around with moving to an approach mindset. My clock is ticking (so is everyone’s) and i’d like to transform in a way i never have.

Commitment device

How do you keep your motivational fire going? How do you keep calm in the heat of a tempting moment? Photo: Yesterday, prepping for last night’s temperature dip into the low 60’s.

A commitment device allows your cool-headed decisions to not get destroyed by the temptation of your hot-headed desire for pleasure or pain avoidance.

Couple commitment devices i use:

  1. Being an example not a warning
  2. Consistently using compelling deadlines
  3. The long way is the shortcut
  4. Loving risk more than comfort

Two weeks into a Summer of Disney Business Books writing

Disney Business Books author
Writing two hours every morning helps me think. Thinking helps me do. Doing helps me serve. Serving helps me find peace and contentment. Peace and contentment floods me with joy.

 

 

Two weeks into a Summer of Disney Business Books writing.

You can pretend to care, but you can’t pretend to show up.

The world is not changed by people who sort of care.

Be amazed and be amazing.

It’s yours to take as far as you want.
