What makes a person change ? Is it financial ruin, or perhaps a near death experience?
Most people are resistant to change, or they don’t know how to change. Oh sure, by working out we can change the shape of our bodies, losing weight or gaining muscle, but what about changing the way we think and perceive things? It’s not so easy, huh?
We hear about it time and time again, where people who are now rich once lived out of their cars. Such people include Jewel, J. K. Rowlings, Robert Kiyosaki and Jim Cramer all claim to have lived either on the street or out of their car at one time.
So is it desperation and the fight to survive that make such individuals keep running until they achieve their goals? Perhaps this is why many immigrants climb the ladder to success more easily. Maybe it because they have that continual drive.
But business/financial success is just one part of the puzzle. There are other attributes that make an individual super. Perhaps being super health, or super sociable are just as important, if not more so!
I think the biggest obstacle in becoming better at things is the fear of trying or the fear of being ridiculed. We see TV make fun of such people, calling them losers, dreamers or nerds and so we instantly associate stupidity with being a non-conformist attempts. It’s hard to be super, when everybody is the bad guy trying to keep you down!
I admit, I come from a family that such efforts and ideas get sly smiles and ideas get shot down instantly. It’s hard to believe when your friends, family and spouse are non-believers…
Do you have any obstacles to overcome to accomplish more out of life?
