Persistence and Consistency

Two magic words. How did we learn to walk? We saw people walking, actually everyone we saw was walking. We knew it was doable and achievable. Tips and tricks from our parents were not helpful, they don’t remember how it is to not be able to walk, so what? Persistence and consistency, falling back on the bump, grabbing anything that kept us upright, again, again and again. So we know what we can achieve through persistence and consistency, however when we grow up, we listen more and more to our parents, teachers and other people around us. We hear things like “You can’t do that”, “No one has done it in our family, why do you think you can do that?” or “What’s the point?”. Most of the time we give up or don’t even try to start to work on our idea.

You have to decide who you are listening to. Do you want to be like your parents and like your friends? Then listen to them. Or do you want to live like Richard Branson, Dr John F Demartini, Donald Trump and Will Smith? Then I would suggest you to listen to them. Read about them and attend their seminars. These people are sharing their experience for a reason, to show that everything is possible in life.

I just attended a seminar with Dr John F Demartini yesterday. Just listen to his story, how he achieved to live the lifestyle he has now …. your eyes will be watering and you will look at your life differently. I am quoting John here:

‎And if somebody says you can’t do it, you fucking can!

F.U.C.K. stands for Future Understanding of Conscious Knowledge! 😉

Everyone can achieve his or her dreams, you just need to work on it, step by step. Work on it persistently and consistently. The will to change your life will make you get up on the morning. Turn it into a habit and soon you will see the change happening.

 

 

P.S. I am looking for ambitious people working with me in my primary business. If that is you … please contact me!

Where are you now?

Old phoneTimes have changed, haven’t they? 20 years ago, you knew exactly where the person was when you called them on the phone. I guess that was the only advantage of having a landline. 😉

These days you call someone, and you could have no clue where they actually are … but somehow you get a connection. The waves find their way through the cloud. How cool is that?

Do you think Generation Z has ever used a rotary dial on a phone? Where I grew up, we didn’t have a phone, until the Wall came down in 1990. I am sure you can guess on which side of the Wall I grew up. If I remember right, only people with the “right” connections or with Diabetics could have a phone. (Surely, other diseases as well.) …. I guess we had plenty of invented diabetic people in the 80’s 😉

I remember when we finally got the phone. It was exciting and cool. You felt special when the phone rang, I still do now, hehe. I actually stayed at home waiting for a phone call. The obvious disadvantage of a landline. As I said, things have changed … I don’t have a landline number anymore. Mobile is the way to go.

Looks like I have outed myself now … I am not member of Generation Z 😀

A 30-days assignment

Do you have the discipline to complete a 30 days assignment?

Imagine you get 10 tasks to do on a daily basis, which will train you to become a better person. The individual tasks don’t take too much of your time.

Personally I see as a change in habits, as it is known a change of habit takes around 30 days, assuming you work on the changes on a daily basis.

I got very excited at the beginning, we finally got a kind of a procedure to get closer to our goals. It can’t be that hard, can it? 😉 First week, man you should have seen me. On Fire …

But no results. I was surprised to see me slowing down. Since when am I so into immediate gratification? Is that a human thingy? I really love how Jerry Clark explains this issue:

Simple disciplines on a regular basis for a long time will turn uncomfortableness into final comfortableness. Simple error in judgements on a regular basis for a long time will turn comfortableness into final uncomfortableness.

You do the interpretation for yourself, as this can be applied to many areas of life.

I am currently in the last week of our 30-days assignment and no, I was not consistent. Do I have excuses? Maybe.

  • Not enough time
  • not enough money
  • I am too young
  • I don’t know anyone
  • … and so on
All of these excuses are not valid. Because, how strongly do you really want to change your life? Would you do whatever it costs and whatever it takes? Is your current situation not frightening enough? Do we need an even worse situation to move? We are far too comfortable in our situation, as it seems far to hard to change.
Wake up .. it is now or never. Don’t lose you fighter spirit. You deserver a better life … go and get it.
