Anything that is worthwhile in your life takes time. If you want AMAZING results then it is going to take time and effort, if you are happy with mediocre then you can cruise along with little effort and you can have it now.
If you want to live a life that not many people live where you love your career, have amazing relationships, awesome health and fitness and great self confidence then you will need to do what other people won’t, so you can have what other people don’t.
The thing that I have found over and over with different people I’ve worked with is so many people give up when the going gets tough. The answer to have an amazing life is to understand that it is going to take effort and it will take time. Once you become comfortable with always evolving and growing in your life then you will be living an amazing existence.
One of the biggest problems with people is that they want everything NOW!!! You may be just about to breakthrough to the awesome thing you want but you give up, for all you know the next day may have been the day it all came together. I have been working on my own growth and development for the past 15 years and it has been really tough at times but totally worth it for the results it has brought me. I intend to keep doing the same for the rest of my life because it is worth it.
Whenever we see someone who is an “overnight success” I wil guarantee they have been working on their craft for years and years prior to getting their BIG break. There is a book written by Malcolm Gladwell called The Tipping Point and in it he researched many amazing people who were elite businessmen, athletes, musicians, scientists etc and there was one common denominator. They had all been honing their craft for at least 10,000 hours. When you take this into consideration it shows you the effort required to be amazing at your life.
If you spent 8 hours per day, 365 days per year it would take you just under 3.5 years to master any one thing. SO how long will it take to be an amazing, partner, parent, professional etc. If you only spend 1 hour per day, 365 days per year it would take 27.4 years to master any one thing.
Therefore if you spend 1 hour everyday of your life being an amazing parent, an amazing partner, an amazing professional, awesome in your health & fitness and awesome at your self worth & confidence then that is 5 hours everyday for nearly 28 years.
The reason I put this together for you is to highlight that if you want AMAZING things in your life it will take a lot of time and effort, but it is worth it. It is totally up to you what type of life you want to live, in my opinion you might as well use it wisely to create the best version of you and your life possible.
