Reactive vs Proactive.

So are you proactive?
I mean that's the way to succeed in life. You've got to be proactive, you've got to think about what you want and you've got to go out there to make it happen. I guess ...;)

I think it is crucial and I have to confess that I find myself most of the time reactive.
So what do I do about it? I need to change.
Awareness is a good beginning.

I recently checked on the NLP and on the work of Milton H.Erickson on hypnosis. It's not the place to delve into the topic though. All I wanted to point out is that according to his work it is possible to hypnotise oneself while you confused and try to make the sense of the things. Person then goes into the trance.

I'm finding myself in the kind of the trance while spending my time over on the internet. I'm learning, I'm searching for more and more information. And the more I dig, the more I'm fascinated, ... and I hypnotize myself, I guess.

I have been studying various topics. And you know how much information is out there. So after a while one can get really into the things and just study more and more. Everything seems to be relevant and everything is so much interesting. It's tough out there. After a while one can find out that one lost valuable time.

Of course, the is the answer to all that and it is: learn as you go. Determine what you need to learn and then proceed on that. Learn and apply. Be proactive.
Of course, I know that :)

If you just try to learn new things without any apparent reason, without clear goal in your head you can pretty quickly find yourself lost in the woods. You react to all these interesting and fascinating information you gather. One minute you think that this one can solve all your problems and the next minute you are already on the another solution. That takes you nowhere.

So the first thing first is to determine where you want to go (maybe even before that determine where exactly you're standing), what you need to learn. And then learn and apply. Be proactive.

Focus on driving.

Focus on driving your life to the point where you want to be.
That's right: FOCUS is the name of the game.

I was driving the other day and it downed on me that all you have to do is focus on driving. I mean, if you want to drive fast and safe you've got to be focused. You can't admire beauty and landscape outside. You can't read a newspaper certainly :) You shouldn't talk on the phone. In many countries it's forbidden anyway.

Of course, you can listen to the radio. You have a conversation with a passenger. With experience you acquire more advanced skills. After a while behind the wheel you don't think much about changing gears and stuff other involved in driving.

The same lesson applies to life itself. If you want to get somewhere in life, you've got to be focused. You need to set a clear goals and then focus on achieving them. It's that simple actually!

There are numerous opportunities along the way. If you don't focus, if you don't commit to your goals, you'll be easily distracted by the next "bright and shiny" thing. Should you get distracted behind the wheel of your car, you can crash.  In life, unless you are focused, you'll have plenty mini crashes. Sometimes, once in the while comes along a big crash. You haven't driven safe. You've got distracted.

In life, unless you stay focused, you'll get distracted many times during the day. Eventually, you will find yourself struggling with all kind of problems. At the end of the day you realized, you haven't achieved much. Why?  Because you let yourself to be distracted. You have not stayed focused on what you really want to achieve.

You've been driving from point A to point B, but soon enough you've taken that side alley, then another one. Eventually, you've found yourself lost and struggling in life.

So what is the solution?
Get focused and stay focused!

Choose your goals and then go after them in the most direct way there is.
Stay focused and keep driving. You'll get there.

Commitment the greatest power of all.

There is no greater power then commitment. Why is it so?
Just think.

At first it may seem like you putting limitations on yourself when you commit to something or somebody. But then it can be liberating. It can let you taste the freedom you never imagined it exists.

It has never been more true then now. In the world of endless possibilities. You can do whatever you want, you have countless options. So you sit there, .... and do nothing. You choose nothing. And when you finally choose, you do not commit. You are ready do jump on another option as it comes. And it comes. There is endless stream of "another, better options".

The life goes on. And you hardly achieved anything.

When you commit, you focus. You focus your energy, your effort, your actions on the very thing you are committed to. You are able to take massive action without any distractions. And that kind of action brings the results,... you want.

There is this great quote form Harry Emerson Fosdick, firs time I've heard it from Bob Proctor in his Freedom Series. The quote goes like this:

"No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined."

There you go, it's all about focus, dedication and discipline. Commitment allows you to achieve that state of mind. The state of mind in which you will be unstoppable. You go after what you want no matter what.

They say that all the mighty forces are coming to your aid the moment you commit. You will meet the right people, the circumstances will support you. It will all fall into place.

Commitment will work the same miracles in an area of  relationship, ... if you try it.

Move out of your comfort zone.

That's right: move out of your comfort zone!
In order to achieve something in life, in order to grow you must move out of your comfort zone.

Recently I've heard that the courage is just that. To be courageous means to face your fears, to conquer them. That's how you do it! You conquer fear, you vanquish it by facing it. You win over fear by doing the thing you are fearful about.

That means you've got to move out of your comfort zone. You've got to trust yourself. You've got to believe in yourself. You've got to believe that whatever will happen, you will get through it, you will manage. You will figure it out.

You've got to start doing the thing. And if you waiting for the circumstances to be right, or for some kind of magic solution to your problems. Well, then you've got to get out of the couch, move your butt.

Your comfort zone is your silent killer.

You've got to rise your standards. You've got to go after what you want. It is your responsibility to make it happen!
So move on!

Make an extra effort.

Here is another great, inspirational video from - 212° the extra degree®

It's a small things that matter. It's this extra effort, one more step that keeps you from releasing the power within you.

As Tony Robbins said once, it's an inch, only one inch difference that will make a great difference down the road. That tiny difference in aproach, in your attitude will make a champion of yourself.

If you will ... MAKE THAT EFFORT.
