Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.
Did you know that?
And these are not my words.
These are words of one of the most successful people in the world.
As a reward for reading the whole post I will share with you who said it at the end 😉
Last night I had so many ideas and exciting thoughts in my head that I couldn’t fall asleep.
I actually felt like staying awake and doing something super productive…I’m not sure if it’s because it was the 1st of January 2017 and suddenly my motivation went “Hakuna-Matata” but as much as I was pleased with that feeling I also knew that I needed to freaking fall asleep if I want to be awake in 6,5 hours.
So it took me a while that’s why this morning it was a little bit of struggle to wake up at 5am and do my full on morning kickass ritual.
I’ve made the decision to take MASSIVE ACTION every single day, no matter what!
Now, why? And how come I came up with this ideas so late?
First, of all this is not my first attempt…I’ve done it or actually, I said it so many times!
But I’ve never stuck to it.
So this time, I’m doing it in a different way.
I’m focusing on simplifying this massive action process as much as possible.
At the moment I am laser focused on 2 areas of my life.
Now, I’ve got few questions for you.
How many times have you started something and stopped or gave up because it was too difficult or you didn’t see any results?
How many ideas did you have, which felt exciting, fun, ambitious and innovative….
….when you 1st thought about them but then as soon as you started implementing them or talking about them to your friends, family or colleagues, it didn’t sound and feel so sexy…
…so you gave up?
How many times would you like to go through this vicious circle of disappointment?
Now, stop reading and answer my question… not to me, but to yourself.
How many more times?
Once more? Twice? Or maybe 10 times more and you will finally learn the lesson?!
How about none?!
How about learning from your best teacher ever- yourself!
How about taking into account all the failures from the past and turning them into massive FEEDBACK?
Believe me, you know enough in order to take your life to another level.
I got tired of that “stinky habit” myself therefore I’ve decided to change it and do something about it every single day.
Big vision, small steps!
Yes, that’s the way to do it. And don’t expect to have all your questions answered straight away.
It takes time and it’s ok.
When you do something, every single day and you stick to it for a very long time- that’s when results finally start knocking to your doorstep.
So I am challenging you today. What are you going to do about it?
Think about your life today and ask yourself:
Where do I want to be in 3/5 or 10 years time? (in your personal and professional life)
Keep it, specific, sweet and simple.
And then ask yourself: What can I do today, which when I do it, it will get me closer to my 3/5/10 year goal?
And then DO IT!!!
Remember, your daily actions, thoughts, decisions will determine how soon are you are going to get there. Your 10 years goal can end up being a 20 year goal or, if you truly committed- 2 years achievement! Seriously! And don’t trust me on this one, try it yourself.
Bill Gates summed it up the best:
“Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.”
So remember: Big Vision, small steps and MASSIVE ACTION!
