A Painful Backstory
Do you ever notice how wildly successful people typically have a painful past? Jillian Michaels used to be teased relentlessly for being overweight. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr grew up in the era of segregation. Richard Branson grew up with dyslexia. Steve Jobs was given up for adoption, which in itself was a wonderful thing – he grew up with loving parents – but the chaos and conflict between biological families was a mess.
Starting in the negative has been a boon for many, so if you feel like you’re behind, you’re poised for success! All you need to do now is follow three simple steps on how to improve yourself everyday. These are the same steps that all these people took to make a difference in their lives and the world at large.
The beauty is that they are simple. And they are easy. That doesn’t mean they aren’t challenging or that they don’t require a lot of effort. It simply means that they don’t require a special skill set, and any capable person can do them.
It’s just three simple steps for how to improve yourself everyday.
Three Simple Steps
In order to build a better you, just follow these three simple steps that extremely successful people follow.
- Take Action: The biggest trick for success is something that people run away from, not because of how hard it is, but because of how hard they make it. If they see a big pile of bricks they need to move, they look at the pile, freak out, and run away. Successful people simply look at one brick at a time. Just act. Focus on the smallest unit of measure that you can act on, then take action.
- Build Confidence: Growing up as the son of a pastor I heard about faith a lot. I struggled with understanding the concept. Some time ago, I finally realized what it’s all about, and it goes hand in hand with confidence. If you don’t believe you can move that pile of bricks, you won’t tuck in and do it. If, however, you know you can, you will start to move it brick by brick. The more you do, the more confident you will be. Believe that you can and take action.
- Be Persistent: It’s not about eating well one day. It’s not about getting up on time for a week. Take action each and every day. It doesn’t matter how you feel. It matters what you do. It’s easy to move a single brick, but it has no value if you don’t continue moving bricks until the pile is complete. That’s the secret that successful people know: You only have to move a brick at a time. Most people give up after they get bored or tired or they never come back from a break. Successful people continue until the job is done.
That’s how to improve yourself everyday: one brick at a time.
Jillian Michaels, famous for helping people lose a huge amount of weight on The Biggest Loser, was once about 175 pounds. That’s when she was in the eighth grade. It all turned around when she started taking martial arts.
One “fight night” her instructor had her cornered. He was laying into her and wasn’t letting up. She gave up and rolled into a ball, but he wouldn’t stop. She realized at that moment that she could either let life keep her down or she could fight back. She came out swinging and never stopped. Now she’s helped countless people turned their life around.
Life is persistent. We must be more persistent. It doesn’t take much. Take action: simply move a brick at a time. Build confidence: as you continue to take action, you will begin to see the pile dwindle. Be persistent: It only takes a brick at a time; keep going until the job is done.
That’s how to improve yourself everyday: a brick at a time.
