With so many self-improvement books available these days, it can be tough to decide who to trust. Many forms of improvement will simply come from trial and error.
I started by asking myself:
What needs to be improved and/or changed?
What steps need to be taken?
Do I need a change in perspective?
So many questions…
Brendon Burchard’s book, “High Performance Habits” is a great tool to jump-start change.
Warning: true change will cause a sense of uncomfortableness.
Have you ever heard the saying, being comfortable is a great place but nothing ever grows there?
Once we understand that, a whole new world will open up.
We can then decide how much focus we should give to things we are passionate about.
If you want to be a writer, how often do you practice your craft? Persistence is the key.
Brendon Burchard is a big fan of discipline and consistency. If you really want to achieve something, you will keep working towards it no matter what.
Another important aspect is our relationship and understanding of others. We should seek clarity on how we want to interact with others. Each interaction must be intentional before it even begins. Specifically, ask yourself “What kind of person do I want to be while I’m doing this?”
The practice of releasing tension from my previous interaction and then setting my intention for the next interaction, has been a game-changer for me.
He says that clarity is the child of careful thought and mindful experimentation. It comes from asking yourself questions continually and further refining your perspective on life.
Physical activity is also very important. Exercise and movement will help generate energy so that you can maintain focus, effort, and wellbeing. If we want to continue to improve our lives and the lives of others, we will need to actively care for our mental stamina, physical energy, and positive emotions in very specific ways.
Get real specific on what you want and you will get there. Build the life that you desire and deserve. Remember that this will take some courage at times. You may need to express your ideas, take bold action, and/or stand up for yourself and others, even in the face of fear, uncertainty, threat, or changing conditions. Courage is a choice.
What I love about “High Performance Habits” is that there are specific steps to take for continuous life improvement. I’m all about specific steps.
