- The takeaway from this week’s episode is … there are no shortcuts to improvement.
- Here’s what this will do for you … you will realize that the source of improvement comes from the promise you made to yourself long ago.
- Here’s what I want you to do with it … the journey to improvement will come from within you, it’s been waiting for you to be ready.
People think that when they read a book or attend a seminar, they are magically improved …
Go to a motivational seminar every weekend for a year and then see if you’ve improved. Chances are you are now more confused.
We have said before that it’s you becoming something better – gradually. So, you don’t become magically improved, it’s a process. You don’t get magically improved by reading books, or going to seminars – you are becoming something different.
Let’s hope that you choose the right books and the right events to go to where you actually make a shift as a result of the experience. It’s never a static process.
CALL TO ACTION:
- You don’t get something just because you are chasing it.
Look around you, no one becomes “Magically Improved.”
- Start acknowledging that all the information you need to shift your life you already have.
HOW IT WORKS: Personal improvement has been sold as entertainment, where you too can become magically improved!
It’s been sold as something you do on the weekend or make a vacation out of it. But, like that weekend vacation, or occasion, it wears off. You learned a few interesting things and maybe even have some bragging rights for attending, but your persistent restlessness is causing you to imagine somewhere else you could have gone. You are just moving from one distraction to another and wondering why you still have that empty hole inside you.
Don’t kid yourself by chasing things, and seeking quick fixes. Instant gratification is not the path to improving, it’s fleeting. Do you like how you are personally improving? Slow down and take a look inside. Invest in some alone time; allowing yourself to show yourself. This is how real improvement happens, not waiting to become magically improved … someday. ~ Linda Deir
