One of the most difficult things to do is to stop a bad habit!
And then of course…another extremely difficult thing to do is to start a good habit.
Now combine those and try to stop a bad habit and start a good habit at the same time!
Two decisions and effort will be required.
You know who I want to hire?
I want to hire the woman on that little raft that left a 3rd world nation, arrived on some beach, and some official arrested the family on the raft.
I want to hire that woman and give her a job!
If she can take her little 4 year old, get on an 8′ x 8′ raft, face sharks, no food for a week, get lost, maybe live through the experience all for the decision to have a better life and the freedom to do so, send her here!
That’s a lot of decisions and a lot of effort.
That’s why immigrants who come to a foreign country are so darn successful.
Man, you live in Vietnam long enough and then find your way to another country, you have it made in the shade. All success requires is decisions and effort.
Nothing compares to the journeys required to actually GET THERE!
Of course, my kids live in Australia, so they have Playstations, big TV’s and are basically at a big disadvantage for achievement and success compared to immigrants who make life or death decisions and then actually DO them!
Here’s a good way to overcome the indecision insanity.
Get angry enough at your current circumstance that you D-E-C-I-D-E to make a change.
The most effective tool for change is a concrete, rock solid, put my life on the line and kick my butt…. decision!
There is a common attribute that almost all successful people have.
That attribute is habit. But not just any habit. The habits of success will bring success in your life.
Decide to get on the raft.
Get on the raft.
Get into the water (with a map).
Be willing to get lost if that is the risk you face.
Be willing to get sent back to start to begin again if someone doesn’t like you in their cushy territory.
RESPECT OTHERS WHO GET ON A RAFT TOO!
