We Continually Put A Stop To What Isnít Going For Us - Grasshopper

What do you think you have going for you? Can you validate it past your own opinion? If not, you won't be able to stop heading into the familiar wall you've crashed into before.

Where we think we are and where we actually are sometimes are two different locales. So when we step off in what we think is a positive direction, we often step off a cliff.

Personal triangulation provides an answer. When you know where you actually are, it's much easier to plot a course to where you want to go. If you're attempting to get there from where you're not, there are a lot of stop signs and detours on that route.

You may be acting as your own stage mother causing you to conclude that you're on a rung of the ladder that's near the top, but the telltale sign that you're not, is that you continue to bottom out.

Comparison without opinion is helpful in determining where you are. Who else is successfully doing what you want to do and reaching heights that you're not? "Without opinion" means just the facts.

Find out what they're doing, how they're doing it and how often they're executing their routine. There is a playbook and there's a good chance you're not following it if you stop before you get going.

"They were born to wealthy parents," "they grew up around talented musicians, "they got all the lucky breaks" are just some of the justifications we use to not do what they do.

Arnold Schwarzenegger had to workout twice a day to get in movie shape for his performance in THE TERMINATOR. "He just got that part because he was a championship body builder," some understudy may say. But he wasn't in the gym sweating it out with Arnold day after day.

Biographies are packed with famous peoples' routines for success. But you have to do more than read them; you have to follow their directions to the letter to change from stop to go.

Have the humility to find out where you truly are, and then find out everything that needs to be done for you to go far.

First, triangulate and then find out if you're willing to do what it takes. If you do, you'll have a much better chance to change your fate.

All the best,

John
