It’s school holidays and I’m usually lucky if I see my 17 year old son on his feet, out of bed before 1pm! Teenagers and their crazy out of whack biorhythms!
This morning, while working from home, I heard a rumble coming from the end of the house where the kids bedrooms are. It was 11am. I went to say good morning to Mr 12 (who is doing a brilliant job of becoming a teenager in the sleep in stakes!) only to find he was still asleep and it was Mr 17 getting in the shower. Shock horror!
Can you guess what it took for him to get up early? To put in the extra effort? That’s right… A girl! Young love is so sweet.
Over the past 25 years I’ve witnessed so many people in life, in health and in business, wait for a catastrophic disaster before they change their behaviour to get what they want. Before they do what it takes to start working towards their goals.
What do you need to do right now in your life to get the results you want? Will you wait for a disaster before you act, or will you be proactive like a smitten 17 year old boy to get what you want?
Will you wait to be pushed by pain and terror, or will you be inspired by what you can achieve if you put in the extra effort?
What do you want right now? How bad do you want it? What will it take for you to get there?
