TGD Video Tip: The secret to succeeding in this life is…there is no secret!
I really hope you take a few minutes to watch this video I made for y’all this am. In it I talk about the only real secret: rituals, routines, habits, and their seemingly magical power to change your life. You see, everyone thinks life changes in big motions and actions, but actually it’s all about teeny, tiny actions and effort taken daily. And it’s that daily part that gets most of us. Most of us can marshal our forces for a few days, weeks, or maybe even months, but eventually we fall off, and fall back to our old stuff. The secret, like I said, is to make this stuff a habit – something so deeply a part of your life that you don’t even consider doing it or not doing it. What if you made goal setting, studying, or a healthy smoothie, or the gym as regular as you do showering or brushing your teeth? Eventually it would become automatic, and that automatic part would make it easy for you to keep the habit going. Choices are hard, habits are easy. Build the important stuff into the fabric of your life and you’ll find progress and success unfolding in front of you.
