The Biggest Myth About Mindset

How long will you wait to make a change?

Do you need months?

Do you need to go see a therapist, first?

Do you need to change your environment? Your relationship? Your job?

What is getting in your way?

Today I want you to take a moment and consider one of the biggest myths about adopting a new mindset.

It may not be anything new to you, but here’s the truth…

You Don’t Need Time

That’s right. I said it.

You don’t need any more time.

When you are “stuck” shifting your mindset, you are getting in your own way.

Coming up with excuses, situations, reasons, alternative ideas, these are all examples of how you create a problem before you made a decision.

Make the Decision

You are always just a decision away from changing your entire life.

You can decide to sell everything you own and travel, just like I did.

While travelling, if things aren’t working out as planned, you can decide to come back home and regroup, just like I have.

When you are pursuing a career, relationship, spending time with people you don’t want to spend time with, or not making time to spend with people you do want to be with, it’s all just one decision away from heading in a new direction.

“You can’t change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction.”

– Jim Rohn

Change Your Direction

That quote above by Jim Rohn has inspired me for years.

From when I was dealing with depression and needed to turn things around, I made the decision to change my direction.

From getting caught up in bad habits like drinking, picking the wrong partners relationships, ignoring looking at my financials in my business…

In each scenario I was just one decision away from changing my direction.

Quit Wasting Time

I have shared this model before about choosing which type of future you are looking to have.

Today, the red and green line are as close as they will ever be. It doesn’t matter what happened in the past. All that matters is what decisions you make today to move towards a new future.

The question you need to ask yourself is, “How long will you wait?”.

How long will you wait to make a decision to jump onto the green line?

The longer you wait, the farther apart the lines become and the harder it will be to jump onto the green line.

In Conclusion

Stop wasting time. Make the decision today to jump onto the green line.

How do you do that?

Make the decision.

Get out of your own way.

Throw all the situations, reasons, ideas, and excuses out the window that are causing you to stall.

If you want to become a hero in your own story, get past the biggest myth in shifting your mindset.

You don’t need more time. You just need to make the decision.
