Getting To Know You…
|Reflecting, Refocusing, Recharging…|
What is the definition of insanity again?
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. ~ Albert Einstein
When I see people want the same goals year after year and never succeed at them but continue to say and do the same things over and over again with the same no results… Are they insane?
One of my favorite all time quotes that continues to blow my mind is:
“If you want to have more, you have to become more. Success is not something you pursue. What you pursue will elude you; it can be like trying to chase butterflies. Success is something you attract by the person you become. ~ Jim Rohn
How many people do you know that go on a diet lose weight, but then gain all the weight back?
How about the start up businesses that everyone tries (more than once) but very few succeed at?
For us to change our lives and really achieve our goals we must become different people. We must stop being the same old person we have always been and become a new and improved version of ourselves.
One of my BIG goals this year is to become religious about keeping a journal daily.
Get to know yourself. The main reason we procrastinate on our goals is not because of external conditions; we procrastinate due to our internal beliefs. And the thing is they are stuck so deep that we don’t even know they exist. But once you do, everything changes. ~ Robin Sharma
Nobody knows YOU better than YOU. I feel a lot of us look to others for answers to our problems. The problem is that is going to be very hard to apply to your situation because it is your situation and not theirs.
Keeping a journaling will help you to conduct real experiments to figure out what works for you – and why. If you want to make any changes in this new year, a journal will help you make sense of them.
Start digging deep inside of you and find out what it is REALLY going to take to make the changes you need too. Otherwise it is going to be the same old year with the same old results and the same old let downs. How is that working for you???
Do you keep a journal? If not, why?
