Surrenduring To The Process

July 9, 2013 in MAGAZINE

    After a little research, a quick read of a “how to” book, or a little Google action you can easily start moving in the right direction as it relates to making progress on any given goal. The real reason most of us don’t even start on most of our goals is because we don’t want to surrender to the process. Here is what I mean. Let’s say you want to lose weight. It doesn’t take a genius to start this goal and see some success or at the very least some progress. Let’s look at the process of losing weight. Eat clean. Count your calories. Stop drinking alcohol. Stop eating sugar. Lose more calories per day than you intake. Exercise five days a week and to speed up the process exercise twice a day. Start hanging around people who are already in shape. Get an accountability buddy.*Shrug*

    It’s not difficult; it is really just a series of proven steps that take some effort. Your lizard brain will ask you “do you really need to do all this to get the result you are looking for?” You come to the conclusion that the answer is yes and promptly decide to do nothing. This modus operandi will not get you skinner, richer, financially well off, or successful. What will accomplish these things or any goal of your choosing is to write down the steps, realize it is going to take a lot of work and just get on with it. In short, I would say, “just surrender to the process.” Your future self will thank your right now self. Trust me on this one. Before I go, I’ll leave you with a Mark Twain quote:

    “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
