How do you get what you want? The simple, two-word answer: Expect it.
That is, of course, the boiled-down version...we'll get into the specifics in this week's episode.
How did you end up being who you are?
In my opinion, you, me and the rest of us are the sum of our habits. Dr. Joe Dispenza gave a great talk about this back in 2018 and you'll find the video linked below. It's a great reminder that our habits control us...so we'd better control them.
Tip of the Week
My tip of the week is an I-Phone app (sorry Android folks...if there is a good equivalent, leave us a comment) called Scan Plus.
Yep, I know...you have a scanning app or two already. This one is great because it not only converts your scan to a pdf, but also uses OCR to digitize the text and make it searchable.
Great for submitting official documents and general archiving, check out Scan Plus in the App Store.
How To Get What You Want
As I previously stated, to get what you want, expect it...now here comes the fine print: That may literally require changing who you are - changing the habits that dictate so much of what you do.
It may not always be easy, but it's my belief that any pattern can be changed if you know the 7 mastery steps:
Understand and Appreciate Their World
Create a Base and Get Leverage
Destroy Any Negative Patterns
This one can be tough. It may require a change of environment, or often...changing the people you associate with.
Define the Problem in Solvable Terms
Create an Empowering Alternative
Condition The New Alternative
Connect to a Higher Purpose
Regardless of whatever spiritual beliefs you hold (or don't hold), connecting to a purpose that is bigger than yourself will be hugely beneficial. Maybe that higher purpose is being a better Christian, or maybe it's serving your community, feeding the homeless or volunteering for an organization that helps clothe underprivileged children.
I suggest creating a new environment and peer group that will support your plans for change. Having people counting on you AND appreciating your efforts is an incredible motivator.
