Imagine if you will just for one moment an element you have always wanted in your life but has thus far evaded you; a better job, a loving relationship or even abundance. Well it turns out that, according to American philosopher Morgan Spurlock, 30 days is all it takes to add a new habit into your life and set you on the road to success. Challenge yourself today!
You can achieve so much in such a short time with the 30-Day Challenge!
So what can you achieve in 30 days? Well, just about anything! You could write a short novel of around 40,000 words, thats just 222 words an hour over a 6 hour day! You could learn to drive, the average pass rate is just 40 hours or even shoot for a single propeller pilot’s licence, the average pass rate being 55 hours. Alternatively you may want to move home or fulfil life’s long burning desire to paint a masterpiece or travel the world, so learning a language would come in handy also.
By now you will have figured out that your goals are only limited to the confines of your imagination. Your achievement can be reached in just 30 days if the desire and focus is sufficiently strong. There is of course an added bonus to all of this, a side effect or, to put it more accurately, a side benefit; pure unadulterated joy! Life suddenly becomes more enjoyable and memorable and the weight of the problems we all carry from time to time, for the large part, begin to lessen. The focus now accentuates the positive and creative, thus changing your perception of your reality. You will certainly look back on your first 30 days with the added WOW factor.
By making small sustainable changes to your life rather than immediately reaching for big goals (which although in themselves are fun!), you suddenly start to build confidence in your ability to achieve. This newly found confidence will expand to the other areas of your life that you give clear, concise focus to.
“If you want a new outcome, you will have to break the habit of being yourself, and reinvent a new self.” ― Joe Dispenza, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself
Ok, you found the inspiration and you want to start your own business, albeit part time. Perhaps a spiritual healing centre or maybe an online esoteric shop. Maybe you have a bit more time on hand “to dare” learning a second language or simply want to be in that loving relationship that has evaded you all these years; you’ve wanted this for a long, long time and are ready to hit the go button!
What are you waiting for?!
Using career as an example, there are some key rules for success in reaching your goals and by understanding them you can avoid the pitfall which result in many people giving up on their dreams.
A 100 mile journey begins with just a single step. Essentially you have to take the leap, being realistic in your own ability to reach your goal. I believe it is absolutely essential to enjoy the process of creating your dream. If it doesn’t feel right, it may be your intuition telling you to take a rain check on this project. Embrace setbacks, they are a powerful learning tool on the ladder to achievement should never worry about the outcome in the developing stages.
For success, apply the S.M.A.R.T formula!
Be Specific, ensure your work is Measurable and Attainable, Relevant, and Timely. As each day passes, use this formula and you will see your confidence grow, whilst achieving something everybody else thought was either out of reach or impossible. It is therefore important to observe daily goals and achievements. Successful people enjoy life so at the very least, even if only for the 30 day challenge, be social. Exercise. Eat healthy food and generally have fun in as many aspects of your life permissible.
There are 12 months in the year allowing x12 30 day challenges, so perhaps on your 4th month, if you have “cracked the code” and enjoyed success with the small sustainable goals you’ve achieved thus far then everything is going to plan. Now you may want to push the boundaries a little further with a bigger challenge.
Ask yourself, am I ready for this? Then, GO FOR IT! Your brain has been rewired to expect success from you. Why? Because the act of achieving has become habit and 30 days was all it took. Just 30 days.
There are 672 hours in 30 days. What are you waiting for? Repeat after me, I CAN DO THIS!
