So for the last couple posts we’ve looked at what makes you great. I said when you change your actions, you make incremental changes. But when you change your thinking, that’s when everything changes.
Because all great accomplishments are created twice: first mentally and then physically.
As we explored yesterday, you don’t become great when you accomplish a result. You become great when you make the daily choices to do the things you know you should do. But what makes you do them?
Your vision of what could be.
And this vision must be so compelling, so sexy, so real that it pulls you toward it. That’s what gets you into the gym, out of bed in the morning, making those extra calls, doing the extra project, challenging yourself.
And vision isn’t just woo-woo stuff…
There is research on the brain’s pre-frontal cortex that demonstrates that when you consistently envision something, you actually increase your brain’s ability to create compelling visions for yourself. The really fascinating thing is that the neurons you use to create your vision are the same ones that fire when you act on that vision.
Ain’t it great!
