Here’s the big idea I want to share with you: We have the ability to choose our thoughts, and we also have the ability to change our thoughts. We have the ability to create new habits, and we have the ability to break old ones. It starts with us intentionally choosing to do this, though, and choosing this every single day.
The most successful people in this world haven’t freed themselves of negative thoughts, and it’s not like they just wake up and they can’t wait to go for a run at 4 am, or they can’t wait to tackle those awkward phone calls, and they have this totally stress-free life. That’s not how it is.
The most successful people in this world wake up, and they do all of those things even though they don’t feel like it. It’s true. Now here’s what happens when you end up doing something you don’t want to do, over and over and over and over. You build up the M-word: “Momentum.”
This is one area I can really speak to as a fitness trainer. You know, I’ve had a lot of failures in my life, but I am really grateful that I’ve been able to build the habit of working out in the gym very frequently. I would say I haven’t missed more than 2 to 3 days in a row for I don’t know, maybe 10 years or more with the exception, of course, of recovery time for injuries.
So, when you see someone who has developed these “successful habits,” you need to know they’re not more special than you, they’re not more talented than you. They’re simply further along in a process for that particular habit. But here’s the thing: They started right where you are, right now.
Here’s what I know for sure: Developing positive thought patterns that push us forward in life is a learned skill. Yes, you can learn this. And we can do this together, that’s what I’m here to help you with. We’re gonna do exactly that today.
And here’s the best part: It doesn’t matter what happened 10 years ago, or 5 years ago, or last year, or yesterday… because today is the first day of the rest of your life.
