1. Start Small

You have to start with a version of the habit that is incredibly easy for you. It must be so easy that you can’t say no to doing it and so easy that it is not difficult at all in the beginning.

 

2. Build on your habit each day

You have to increase your habit each day, but in an incredibly small way.

 

3. Always Keep It Simple!

Even after increasing your habit, all repetitions must remain easy. The total habit should be broken down into easier pieces if needed.

 

4. Laser Focus

Focus on what you really want to achieve and remove all surrounding distractions.

 

5. Generate a System

Plan out how you will stick to your habits, how are you going to stay passionate and focused?

 

6. Don’t Push Away Your Happiness

Don’t push happiness off until you hit some future milestone. Allow yourself to be happy in the moment. Be happy while you are working on the task. While you are working on building your skill set, rather than thinking it is something you will get to once you are good enough.

    Thanks again for another great article and podcast. I love the fact that he started out with the encouraging us to start simple and then building up as we go. To many of us try to take too large a step to start with and then can not keep the momentum. Starting small and building on to earlier progress is the best way to go. Not only will it get us to our goal it will build confidence as one progresses.

    Another powerful method is repetition. The more you repeat a good habit the stronger it gets imprinted into your subconscious mind until you do it automatically.

    I love this article. It is so very direct. I enjoy the reminder of how important remaining happy is. Many times unfortunately life throw us a few curve balls and happiness is out the window.

    I also like that you stress the importance of maintaining focus. To many times we get distracted by everything that is going on around us and lose our focus.

    These are great steps to include in our every day journey to success and happier life.

    Thanks Joel,
    I like your sixth point – about pushing happiness away. Too often we are living in anticipation of some great thing in the future and blindly going about our daily business and “now” without much thought.
    Great plans and an inspired future is something worth cherishing, but living right now and being able o appreciate today, right now, and be calm and in the moment is key.
    By all means culture a great future, but at some point the future becomes the now and that is all anyone has, ever.
    Thanks Bren

Motivation

Whenever I Am Fearful Of What People Think, I Do This.

Published

on

I’ve had some days recently where I’ve been plagued with that question “What will people think?”

“If I say that, will people hate it and could it ruin my career?”
‘If I say the truth and people dislike it, could that ruin an upcoming opportunity?”
‘If they don’t like it, will I ever get another chance?

Whenever I find myself becoming fearful of people’s opinions, I do this:

 

I compare their opinion to my mortality.

This is the main hack so let’s start with this. Whenever I find myself worrying about what people think and how it may affect my success, I remember that in the scheme of things I am only on this Earth for a short amount of time.

Anything that I say will likely be forgotten pretty quickly. People are so caught up in all the troubles of their own life that they don’t have space in their mind to remember all of my flaws and silly moments. So if people are highly unlikely to remember, then who cares what people think?

Comparing opinions to your own mortality is a fantastic way to get a reality check. This way of thinking always gets me out of my head. Death is a good motivator that will make you take action and not get caught up in your head trying to win a war against opinions.

 

I’d rather try for greatness than never know because of fear.

Being paralyzed by people’s opinions stops you from ever reaching your full potential. You end up second-guessing yourself and not taking certain actions out of fear for what people may think. You can’t enter their mind and steal their thoughts (not yet, anyway) so you’ll never know for sure.

Maybe people love what you said. Maybe what you hypothesize they’re thinking is wrong. So the truth is you’ll never know for sure.

“What I do know for sure is that greatness is within all of us and it can only be unleashed when you stop giving an F”

Greatness is achieved when you say what you think, you take vulnerable actions, you’re authentic and most of all, you don’t hold back. People’s opinions are holding you back and they don’t matter. What matters is your opinion of yourself.

 

What matters is you tried.

And your critics probably didn’t. By not being held back by opinions you end up trying things that you’d normally not do. Here are some of my own examples:

  • I went to a high interval training workout class. Normally I wouldn’t because I’m currently unfit, but because I don’t care what people think, I did it anyway and loved it.
  • I entered a public speaking competition and won against very tough competition. Normally I wouldn’t but I told myself that I can say cool stuff too.
  • I took a long plane trip overseas. Normally I wouldn’t because I have a fear of flying but because I’ve now flown enough times, flying is actually fun.
  • I started this whole blogging thing. Normally I wouldn’t of because I used to hate writing and found it dead boring. I thought people would think what I had to say was dumb. Then I discovered my passion for blogging and now it’s what I’m known for by millions of people

How much success are you leaving on the table by being shackled down with the opinions of others? Just do what you love and if people hate it then screw them. They’re obviously not your target audience or don’t get your unique talent. Giving it a go will show you more than doing nothing.

 

I think about not living my dream life.

If people’s horrible opinions of you are weighing you down, then try this reverse hack: Think about what would happen if you didn’t live your dream.

Whenever I second guess myself about giving a talk, I think about what would happen if I never discovered this whole inspiring others gift that I had secretly hidden inside of me.

When you weigh up in your head the difference between people’s thoughts of you, and living your dream life, you’ll find your mind always pushing towards the later. Use this super-sized hack to destroy your fear of opinions.

 

I remind myself of what the great’s do.

If fear of public reticule is holding me back, I think in my mind about what the greats would do. Would Steve Jobs let someone tell him that his phone needs more buttons?

“Would Martin Luther King let someone tell him that black people’s rights don’t matter and to stay at home today by the warm fire? Not in a million, trillion years”

So if the greats wouldn’t allow opinions to stop them in their tracks, why the heck would you?

 

I think of what I’m doing in comparison to the world.

An excellent way to put your actions and the opinions about them into perspective is to compare what you’re doing with the world. If you say something stupid in front of your co-workers, in the scheme of things, does that one event change the rest of the world?

Does your little mistake really matter compared with the billions of other mistakes that are happening at the same moment? Probably not.
