Let’s get this out of the way: You are a badass.
So how come no one else knows that yet?
If your 2019 is going Lebanon WhatsApp Number List to have more juice. Thus, more success, and (yes, it’s okay to want this) more money, you’re going to need to claim your badass identity. So … what keeps you from doing that?
It’s probably not skill or smarts. I’m quite confident that you have plenty of both of those.
It’s not access to opportunities. You have access to a ton of excellent opportunities. There might be some things that are keeping you from seeing them all.
I think what’s holding you back is that it makes you uncomfortable to think big. You feel weird admitting, even to yourself, that you’re Kind of a Big Deal.
Here’s something I would love for you Lebanon WhatsApp Number List in the coming year:
I want you to be a warrior. I want you to have a monster year. To claim yourself as, in fact, a Very Big Deal.
And if you want to do that, you can’t be afraid of rattling some cages. Including (especially) your own.
Here are three cage-rattlers you might want to explore in the next month or so, to get yourself ready for a breakthrough 2019.
Rattler #1: Work harder than other people
The digital age is all about Easy. Less work, less friction, less time, less attention.
Did you see the Pixar movie WALL-E? Where the handful of survivors of the apocalypse floated around on gravity-defying rafts and sipped large drinks while keeping themselves mindlessly amused?
It was a horrifying fate. There was no dignity, no meaning, not even any real pleasure in that life.
I don’t think that’s what we want.
We don’t want a life without work. We want a life with meaningful work.
And while some will roll their eyes when you talk about wanting to do work that matters (get used to that one), that’s just a defense mechanism to cover their own internal dead zones.
When you find work that matters to you, you show up and do it. Again and again.
There is no mastery without hard work. Which is wonderful, because mastery without hard work would be boring and pathetic.
Rattler #2: Learn more than other people
Our digital ecosystem does love to cram us to the brim with information. We’re all gobbling down endless amounts of content designed to amuse us, and maybe teach us something simple without asking us to fire up too many unfamiliar brain cells.
What would happen if you decided to spark those brain cells, after all?
What would you find if you immersed yourself in your topic? If you committed to actually opening up and implementing the courses you’ve bought? If you read that stack of books on your bedside table or taking up space on your Kindle?
What would happen if you started asking a ton of questions? If you got involved with a focused group of like-minded professionals to help out one another?
What would happen if you got back in touch with how much you actually love to learn? With how alive and excited it makes you feel?
