Some Let's just contemplate that for a second.
It's not as CRAZY as it sounds.
Now, obviously there are things that are beyond your control - let's call them "acts of the universe."
But above and beyond that - we have control over more things than we give ourselves credit for.
The thing is, we tend to stick with what we are comfortable with - and steer away from that which scares us.
Imagine the possibilities that open up if we flip those on their heads - we move OUT of our comfort zones and towards that which scares us!?
Let's look at en example.
We want some more money so that we can take an EPIC trip to DISNEYLAND. (Where else!?)
So, how do we achieve that?
Most people would probably save or put it on their credit card.
Let's think bolder - outside our comfort zone.
Do something that scares us.
Ask for a raise!
Start a side hustle!
Flick some stuff on eBay or Gumtree!
If you have a goal - no matter WHAT it is - BIG OR SMALL - there are a MILLION ways that you can achieve it.
It's just a matter of how far you are prepared to step out of your comfort zone and towards that which scares you.
Remember - one life, ONE CHANCE GUYS!
LIFE IS NOT A DRILL.
Write your own FUTURE.
Be The Black Sheep.
Ever wonder how the people you look up to got to where they are?
What sets them apart from everyone else?
What makes them 6 degrees away from AVERAGE?
The answer is simpler than you think.
IT'S THEIR HABITS.
New York Times Best-Selling Author Brendon Burchard has a whole book on the subject - "High Performance Habits."
This should be on the reading list of every Black Sheep - everyone with a thirst for MORE.
Here's a quick rundown of the habits that Brendon identified in the BEST of the BEST.
1. They seek CLARITY
2. They GENERATE ENERGY
3. They RAISE NECESSITY
4. They INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY
5. They DEVELOP INFLUENCE
6. They DEMONSTRATE COURAGE
Do they sound like habits you could implement to get some BIG RESULTS?
What can you bring to your own personal Black Sheep Party today?
My personal favourite is GENERATE ENERGY. With the right amount of POSITIVE ENERGY, you can tackle just about anything.
Are you motivated by necessity?
Unsure? Think about the last major decision you made.
A significant other.
Did you go with what was AVAILABLE? Or what you REALLY WANTED?
The space between those two concepts is the difference.
Did you just settle for the options that lay in front of you?
Or did you seek out INFINITE POSSIBILITIES?
So many people go through life doing only what they MUST.
They do not seek out what is POSSIBLE.
They simply accept what is AVAILABLE.
Others aren’t as fussed by what they HAVE to do and are more about what they WANT.
Life is about options, choices, paths and most importantly EXPERIENCES.
It’s about the unknown, what can evolve and what opportunities might present themselves.
You will have a natural affinity with one or the other.
My nature is without a doubt necessity.
A necessity mindset is SAFE and my brain loves that.
It’s also BORING as hell and not a great way to LIVE.
As a Black Sheep - someone who wants to embrace their true self and get as much out of life as possible, you’ll want to find a way to embrace possibility.
We’re about LIVING not EXISTING so therefore we want to move towards POSSIBLITY and away from simply NECESSITY.
So how do you break through if that’s not your nature?
The next time you have time make a decision - ANY DECISION – look for infinite possibilities.
Don’t just accept what’s right in front of you.
That’s where the best adventures begin.
It could be as simple as deciding what to have for lunch.
Don’t do what you would normally do.
You’re just doing it out of necessity if you do.
How can you make it an adventure of INFINITE POSSIBILITY and MAMMOTH DISCOVERY?
Start small but definitely START TODAY.
