Being that yesterday's blog post had more views than any blog update I ever posted, I am going to pick up where I left off yesterday. Especially considering that yesterday was Sunday! (We even reached four new countries... Chili, France, Spain and Sweden - As a matter of fact, these blog updates have already been viewed in 18 countries in our first ten days!) So a special thanks to those of you who have been re-tweeting the tweets as well as sharing the posts.
The question yesterday was "What would you do if _______ were guaranteed?"
am assuming that some of you did not take the three seconds and
actually fill in the blank and of course I am also sure that there were
a certain amount of you who tried but maybe did not know how to fill in the
blank. What I would propose doing, even if you did fill in the blank,
is simply fill in the blank with a dollar amount. It is not about the
money, it is about raising our standards which is what happens when we
think a little bigger.
Though this works with any goal, try this and notice how it changes your reality... "What would you do if $1,000,000 were guaranteed?
Even if your skeptical, try this, your mind does not know the difference between perception and reality. Leverage the motivation. If your goal is to run a mile more today or burn that extra pound - notice how much easier it is when the perceived reward is significantly greater. Have fun with this one.
Did yesterday's question do anything for you? Let me know, leave a comment.
