- Instead of focusing on barriers and boundaries, see a world where anything is possible.
- All too often, we let our lives be defined by narrow constraints. Instead of striving to attain our goals or working to pursue our desires, we imagine them to be out of reach. Sometimes, we don’t even imagine better lives at all. We simply accept the world around us as permanent. However, the first step to making any big change is to start seeing the world as full of possibility.
- you need to interrogate your own subconscious understanding of the world. The way we see reality is shaped by our habits, beliefs, opinions, and experiences, or HBOEs.
- you can start making a conscious effort to change them. One strategy is to push back against recurring negative thoughts with positive, aspirational visualizations.
- once you truly start believing that positive change is possible, you’ll be ready to start taking action.
- Our attitudes have an incredible power to affect how we approach the world around us. A negative attitude can make the world seem dark, dangerous, and bleak, while a positive one can bring out the best in most circumstances.
- reorient your thoughts with positive framing.
- always to adopt a growth mindset.
- surround yourself with positive role models.
- Everyone’s life needs a driving force. For some people, it’s a concrete goal or milestone, like climbing the tallest mountain or winning a gold medal. For others, it’s an ongoing practice that fills them with passion, like building a new business or helping people in need. Whatever that force is, finding it is crucial, because it helps direct your actions and gives your days meaning.
- Once you’ve settled on your goal, you need a strategy to bring it to fruition, involving all the steps you’ll take to make your vision real.
- To get started on your strategy, consider all the Little Big Things you’ll need to achieve your aims.
- Once you’ve identified your Little Big Things, develop a plan to acquire them all gradually. You can do this on your own by setting performance metrics to meet over time.
- Carefully select collaborators who understand your aims and working style.
- One very effective method for structuring your effort is the CHAMPION process.
- C, is for “chunk it out”; this involves breaking down your strategy into smaller milestones you can achieve one at a time.
- H is for “have a go.” This means actually going out there and trying to hit your mark, whatever it is.
- A is for “assess your results.” Were you able to hit your first milestone? Why or why not? Consider what went wrong and what you can do better next time.
- M – “maintain your mindset,”
- P – “hang out with the right people,”
- I – “investigate the best.”
- O – “own the outcome,”
- N – “never give up.”
- When you approach life with an “It’s all possible” mindset, you never know where it will take you. You also can’t predict what challenges you’ll face and what skills you’ll need to overcome them. That’s why it’s important always to be ready to expand your knowledge and develop new abilities, talents, and areas of expertise.
- Always take the opportunity to recognize the gaps in your knowledge and push your education outside your comfort zone.
- don’t feel pressure to become the ultimate authority in every field. Sometimes, just getting a strong handle on the basics can go a long way.
- never stop learning about yourself. Our identities and personalities are always works in progress. Part of lifelong learning is making time to investigate our own thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
