Last week I shared that to make any change we must get hungry. But how do we do that?
Firstly, get crystal clear on what you really want by asking the question ‘what would excite me?’ This opens us up to the realm of possibility.
Most people set outcomes by asking ‘what can I achieve safely?’ and this is akin to asking ‘how can I get a new shoelace?’ when you’ve broken one. It’s boring. And how often are you still fiddling with that broken shoelace three weeks later?
Once you know what would excite you it’s time to get clear on WHY it’s a must.
If you saw a $100 bill floating down the river about to go over the Niagara Falls what would you do? You’d wish it well and watch it go over the falls.
If you saw you child floating towards the falls what would you do? Whatever it takes.
When the why is strong enough, the how will reveal itself, and any how is tolerable.
Or do you want to be right?
Recently I was in a meeting with my management team.
One isn’t better than the other.
We all have different personas; the child, the warrior, the sage etc.
Is a feeling.
Entrepreneurs and doctors are similar in many ways.
Recently, I had an experience that led to a decision that on the outside might have seemed rapid and reckless.
Recently I met someone who inspired me to my very core; where they’ve come from, what they believe in, what they are doing, who they are, the integrity and courage they live with, the way they are living, the choices they are making, the trust they choose to live with…
They say the man who is going to live to 150 has already been born.
