IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
When an idea becomes your obsession and purpose, and it is highly personal to you, then you can take that idea and quickly turn it into a reality.
Ideas can only truly catch hold if they are embedded within a deeply emotional experience that reshapes how you view your identity and purpose in life.
“You never change things by fighting against the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.”
The only way to get to the next level is by letting go of who you’ve been. The longer you hold on, the smaller your thinking will be.
Don’t get stuck where you were. Be willing to banish the past, no matter how great, for a better future.
Every time you step into growth, you’ll experience an increase in complexity and chaos. Growth is the process of taking something complex and making it simple.
This is how you grow. You step into chaos and create simplicity and knowingness.
These are the keys to discovering what is possible and what is out there.
You don’t know what you don’t know. You must be exposed to new universes to realize it’s possible to expand far beyond the current sphere in which you are.
Comparing yourself to others (those at the top of the industry), being inspired by someone and learning from their mastery is essential to learning and growth. Mimicry, however, is a very bad thing.
Study the best examples and understand what worked out for them so you can quickly innovate and evolve beyond that. Don’t be an imitator. Be an innovator.
As you begin to map out the possibilities (in the form of various role-models from multiple domains), you begin to crystallize and clarify your personal 'Why'.
You’ll be able to have concrete concepts to point to in explaining what matters to you, where you’re going, and how you’re going to do it.
“To discern what is truly essential we need space to think, time to look and listen, permission to play, wisdom to sleep, and the discipline to apply highly selective criteria to the choices we make.”
You begin making changes to your environment and relationships that reflect the old you and old vision.
Your environment, language, behavior, and life begin to quickly reshape themselves to match the new reality you’ve spiritually and emotionally created.
“There are only three requirements for success. First, decide exactly what it is you want in life. Second, determine the price that you are going to have to pay to get the things you want. And third, and this is most important, resolve to pay that price."
“Don’t join an easy crowd; you won’t grow. Go where the expectations and the demands to perform are high.”
