Why are people so reluctant to improving themselves and enjoying life better? I know that people can get stuck in life, not wanting to step into the unknown territory because they feel more comfortable in their safe zone, but why are we humans like that? We would like for everything to evolve and become better in our surroundings all the while we don’t have the courage to face ourselves in the mirror and accept that we have to do some changes in our lives, and most of the time we actually know what it is that needs changing.
Anyway thinking out loud here, but I stumbled on this video of Matthew giving a speech to a bunch newly graduated university students and listening through the thing I have to give it to him. It was inspiring and great advice he put forth.
Honestly it feels like Matthew is the living proof of someone who is living by Jordans 12 Rules for Life .
What I liked was the part where he talks about Process of elimination is the first step to our identity. Where you are not is as important as where you are.
This is something I’ve heard JBP talk about in similar fashion. Making a list of where you’d not want to be in five years from now, make another list where you write where you actually would like to be in five years from now. Use the first list to fuel your motivation to get where you actually would like to be five years from now. So it’s very important as both guys suggest to come to realization as to where you aren’t in life just as where you’d love to be. It isn’t until we make that first list that we keep reminding ourselves, Hey I’m getting close to getting back to my old self and I don’t want that let’s change the course.
Let’s move closer to where we aimed at!
