Staying the same will lead to great pain.If you refuse to change you only have yourself to blame. Yeh Yeh, I'm a poet and I didn't know it 😂
Jokes aside, moving forward will naturally include change. Even if it's 1% change and improvement a week, that will build up to 52% in a year. That's a fricking huge amount.
Unfortunately, too many performers rest in their laurels because they had one good performance once upon a time. Looking back at the nostalgia too fondly as if they don't have a future or as if they're already satisfied with what they've achieved. Change is scary, but staying the same is damn petrifying. Staying the same is as good as going backwards.
How do we change? 1️⃣ Self-awareness, 2️⃣ Choosing an excellent yet simple process, and 3️⃣ Committing to it. No it isn't easy to follow, but it's worth it.
FYI, research shows that real habit formation/change takes around 6 months so if you commit to change a habit, e.g. How you get too excited in a major competition and burn all your energy, or how you always get so annoyed with one person at work as soon as you see their face, it will be around May/June 2019 that effect can be completely nullified without any hiccups afterwards. Naturally, you start now!
If it was simple, everyone would do it. Good thing is, if you're reading this, you're not everyone now ware ya? 😉 And btw, admitting you need to change is fricking brave. So well done you if you have admitted it!
