A Nail. A Mirror. A Seed.
What is it? The choice to do what you are great at.
COVID has taken it’s toll on so many this year. For some, heartbreak. For others, a time to be grateful. Grateful for all that you have.
So many of us live a life of quiet desperation and are not happy with our choices. We might be stuck in a job we hate, are married to someone who abuses us, or we have habits that are harmful to our health. Sometimes our personal beliefs determine the choices we make.
What if your personal beliefs are not the truth? What if you had the courage to make different choices that could change your life? Would you be willing?
Change can be difficult, even scary. I am here to challenge you to take another shot.
We are motivated by two things. Stopping pain or seeking reward. How bad does it have to hurt before you are willing to change? Are you willing to look in the mirror, see your strengths, weaknesses, and work on you? What if you could make a choice to change everything for the better? Would you have the courage?
I dare you to stop and take a personal inventory. If you have been contemplating doing something different for quite a while, maybe this is the time. The It Box has three simple objects that represent the steps that need to be taken to Own It….
The Nail: Define your why. Are you avoiding pain, or seeking reward? Have you been sitting on a nail for a while? Whining about how much it hurts, but not willing to do anything about it? Maybe its time to get off the nail.
The Mirror: Look in in the Mirror. What do you see? Do you have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to achieve your it? Who are you? What are you good at? What do you love? What do you need to learn?
The Seed: Plant a Seed. What do you need to do to start on the path to pursue your it? Take the first step, no matter how small it might be.
I DARE YOU…..
