December 16: ADAPT!


-Tom Bilyeu

Jim Rohn always taught that one way to learn to do things right is by doing them wrong.  The key was, he said, not to do them wrong for too long!

Each day we wake up, the reset button has been pushed.  Each day is a new opportunity to create, live, and enjoy the life we want.  Adaptation plays a huge role in this.  We MUST learn to adapt, change, improve, progress, pivot, recalibrate, expand, and evolve, in order to optimize everything we can about ourselves in order to FULLY enjoy this life experience.

If there is anything in our life or in our day that is making us upset, frustrated, anxious, unhappy, or angry, it is entirely up to us, AND WITHIN OUR POWER, to change it.  If we don’t like where we live, we can move.  We are not trees!  If we are incredibly unhappy with our job or the people we work with, we can work towards solving the issues, or get another job.

We always have options.  ALWAYS.

We can learn to choose adaptation over acceptance.  We can become relentlessly, beautifully, unapologetically, respectfully, and confidently, DEFIANT.  Fight for what you want and for who you want to become.  Fuel your inner fire with a daily, consistent routine, which will carry you with strength, honor, integrity, authenticity, and dignity throughout the rest of the day.  When we do this enough times it becomes our life.  That which we practice and repeat, we become better and better at, no matter what it is.

We are in life where we are now of our own choice and volition.  We either enjoy where we are, or we have regrets and suffer from the residual effects of our repeated decisions, each and every day.

The results and outcomes of our life today are the residual effects of the actions we used to take.  They are inextricably connected.  If we want different results and outcomes a year from now, we MUST begin to practice different habits and take different actions.

What do you want your life to be like in a year?  What would you have to do daily and consistently for the next year to make it so?  It is entirely up to you to make it happen.  Get started and adapt!

At first, it is difficult to do new things, but the more we practice new things and repeat them, the better and better we will get at it.  When we decide exactly what we want to be most fulfilled and happy, and make it a necessity, we will relentlessly pursue whatever it is.  We will never give up on that thing.  We will do whatever we have to in order to create or manifest it, NO MATTER WHAT.

Today’s challenge for myself: 

Today I will decide what I need, to adapt in the ways that will ensure I create, live, and enjoy, the life I want and deserve.  I will remember that the more I consistently do for me, the more it will empower me to consistently do for others.

Where are you on The Ladder of Accountability today?
