Do you invest in being better then average? Or is being average OK? Honestly, being average is lame!
We just returned from watching the movie “Lucy”. It was truly conscious altering. It made me think back to the lessons I’ve learned about using more of my mind.
Unquestionably, there is a huge part of our brain which goes untapped if not exercised. Can you imagine what we might achieve by exercising our brain regularly? What could we accomplish by using more of our mind?
In the past, I listened to many of Earl Nightingale’s teachings. He was the personal development pioneer of the early 1950’s. Earl believed if we used more of our minds we could tap into limitless potential. He challenged people to exercise their minds as much as their physical bodies. What was his favorite method?
His suggestion was to invest time in actually thinking. Get up early in the morning, before anyone else when all is quiet. With a cup of tea, coffee, or water sit with a pad of paper and pen. Write down any ideas which come to your mind. Start by doing this for 15 minutes then work up to an hour if possible.
It doesn’t matter what your ideas look like. This is not about coming up with hundreds of great ideas. Write down anything which helps make your life better or more efficient. There may be only 1 or 2 things you write down which help in your day to day life. That’s quite alright. Putting thoughts to paper every morning intensively focused on stimulating your creative thought process, is a powerful and active step toward designing your life.
We have been told it takes 21 days to create a habit. Attempt this exercise for 21 days and see how your life improves.
If you get the chance, listen to Earl Nightengale’s “Lead the Field“. Both Jay and I love his timeless message of how to be the best at what you do in both life and business.
Be the BEST YOU At Any Age!
