You've probably heard the saying, "if you can conceive it you can achieve it" as related to changing your life for the better.
Well, not exactly…
Simply conceiving something, knowing that you want to achieve something in your life is not enough to make it happen is it?
What do you have to gain following the crowd?
What good comes from letting someone else control your life, your time, your energy and and your contribution to the world?
Yet 97% of the population are followers…we are taught to follow rules, do the "right" thing, study standard teaching, to not deviate from the lesson plans and rules.
I'm not crazy about words like success or achievement, even though they are powerful words, they mean different things to different people.
Depending on your beliefs and your background, these words may have more negativity associated with them that positive meaning.
I Had an interesting conversation with a buddy of mine over a few drinks last night.
His frustration was that he was busier than ever…
Hitting it hard!
Lots of to-do lists, getting up early, doing many of the "right" things…meditating, exercise, watching his diet, etc…
I get told often by people that "I am so stressed" where they assume that stress is coming from being too busy or doing too many things.
Yet, if you really dig in, the stress comes not from being too busy but rather from the uncertainty and lack of control over one's life.
