How to Turn Off your Autopilot, Stop Waking Up to a Repeat of Yesterday, and Trade your Lead for a Jet Pack
It seems like some people have it all figured out. You’ve seen them. They don’t seem to be bound by the same rules as everyone else. They do what they want–make things happen and achieve their dreams. They love their lives and seem to be powered by rocket fuel.
Meanwhile, you’re running on empty. Going through the motions. Stuck in neutral. Slogging. Working for the weekend.
You long for things to get better, but it never seems to happen.
If you’re like most people, there’s ONE thing that keeps you stuck, above all else. One thing makes the difference between trudging through life with cement-filled boots, and blasting off toward your goals.
It’s what keeps us repeating the same patterns, knowing that we want more, and unable to do anything about it.
Its power comes from our fear. We’re afraid we can’t handle it. We’re afraid we’ll mess up or make things worse if we do something differently. So instead, we keep trudging. As much as we complain, there’s a certain security in keeping things the same. We know change is risky, so we avoid it.
The problem is, staying stuck is even riskier. The longer you stay in the same rut, the deeper it gets and the more embedded you are. The price of inaction is boredom, apathy, and despair. It’s deathbed regrets and the feeling of watching your life slip through your fingers. It’s waking up each morning with nothing to look forward to or be excited about. Why get out of bed at all?
Today, you have a choice. You can keep doing the same thing, repeating the same patterns and never getting off the ground. Or you can embrace your power right now.
