DEATH IS LIFE’S GREATEST ILLUSION.
There is an interesting phenomenon of the mind that I wanted to explore with you today.
This is the tendency for you to put big, hard-to-comprehend ideas far into the future, and distant from the present.
Here are a couple examples:
Getting a fit body
Reading a lot of books
Making a lot of friends
Having a healthy marriage
Making millions of dollars
Travelling to every country you want to visit
But when you really take a second to break these goals down…
You realize that these seemingly massive accomplishments
Are really just a collection of daily work.
Death: Becoming aware of each part of you that dies every day
Fit body: Eating, sleeping, and exercise habits that you practice every day
Well-read: Reading something every day
Friends: Seeing someone (or making plans to) every day
Marriage: Working on yourself and/or your relationship every day
Millionaire: Creating something people value every day
Travelling: Planning - or actually going on - trips every day
YOU ARE A CREATURE OF HABIT
It’s time to ask yourself what you’re doing each day to live more or die more.
What incredible daily goals can you create to ensure you reach these seemingly insurmountable major life achievements?
Once you pick these, practice them hundreds and then thousands of times.
And then maybe if you’re lucky you might get a little bit closer to your goals than you are right now.
