Key Ideas

Definiteness of Purpose

Real commitment is implementing the decisions made, even during a struggling phase of life.

One's purpose should be clearly defined and acted upon without hesitationResearch shows that if you hesitate for even a few seconds when you feel inspired to do something, your chances of doing it drop DRAMATICALLY even after 2-4 seconds.

A life without Hesitation

  • When you make a decision or a plan of action, be in an energized state of mind.
  • Create various accountability and fail-safe mechanisms to remove any possibility of doubt.
  • Stick to your decision until it is done.

What Commitment Means

Even when life gets difficult, you seeing your goal through the end is what commitment looks like.

Your decision is final no matter what happens, and you see to it and make sure it gets implemented.

Resolve

To think about a decision you have made, time and again, is to doubt yourself. To resolve means making the decision and finding no excuses. It means not even listening to yourself trying to convince your mind out of the decision. It means you have left your fear, doubt, and disbelief far behind.

Your goal is assumed as completed in your mind.

People Want Certainty

Most people would take security over total freedom because with freedom comes responsibility and uncertainty.

To experience inner freedom, you have to let go of certainty and embrace insecurity.

Self-Confidence To Commit

Few people challenge themselves and keep their commitments. They end up lying to themselves, breaking their own self-confidence.

They fear to commit as they don't trust themselves and remain in a weak and powerless state of indecision.

Being in a peak state

... means you’re operating at the level you want to be, so that you can achieve ambitions beyond anything you've done before. You can reach this state by: 

  • Getting your body moving and breathing deeply (some of the easiest ways to get into a peak state).
  • Listening to music that motivates you.
  • Giving a genuine compliment or being kind to someone.
  • Learning and expanding your mind.
Morning rituals

They are what triggers a peak state.

The core purpose for having a morning routine is to put yourself into a peak state in the morning — so you can then operate from that state for the rest of your day. Rather than being reactive, addicted, and unconscious in your morning — it’s far better to proactively put yourself in a peak state in a ritualistic manner.

Life as a Paradox

Life is full of paradoxes, and anything and everything that we hope for or desire only leads to more anxiety and stress, creating new problems for us.

We can be content. But it's not simple. To understand why we seem to be constantly dissatisfied with ourselves and the world, we must understand some basic psychological principles.

Psychological Thermostats

Our behavior, contentment, desires, expectations, and body clocks are set differently, and this may lead to conflicts and problems with others.
