“Your choices determine your goals”. We are aware. Our mind knows. But, mysteriously, our lives often don’t follow this simple principle. Why is it? Because we don’t only think in different way. If we want to create a real change, we have to build new habits.
Often, we want to change our direction, but we have the strength to really change. We act as if we were not the captain of our ship. What we do is comfortable, we know the pattern and it is reassuring. So, why do we change? Sometimes we blame others because we didn’t achieve our goals. Our storms, rough seas are caused by others (family, friends, colleagues,…)
Therefore, the first change is to come in our mind. Maybe, the first question is:
What's the worst thing that can happen to me if I try this?
Sometimes we want the result immediately. There are steps back and leaps forward. In my experience, I noted there are moments of accumulation of information and practice and then, sometimes unexpectedly, there’s a qualitative leap. The captain knows that his ship sails for many miles seemingly without advance because there aren’t reference points but finally, after many days, the ship reaches its destination. If the captain had lost trust in his direction, the ship could not arrive at the destination.
What’s the lesson?
Have crystal clear goals, keep calm and work hard!
