…me ego says.
And my higher self replies: “No, actually you don’t!”
…because if I would really, really, really love that, I would be dedicated!
I would practice for, I don’t know, 6 hours every day – that is 42 hours per week, 3 whole months of practising in a year!
And to be honest with you, now, I only strum my guitar a couple of times per month, so deep inside, I don’t want to play the guitar like Eric Clapton.
Sure, it would be great, and amazing, and impressive to play like him, but without any tangible actions, this remains only an idea.
Because as I see it, the easiest attitude in life is to dream and then complain about not being lucky enough.
And this is valid for anything we do guys, from acquiring a new habit, to removing a stubborn one.
To become who you truly want to be, you need to be persistent and constantly dedicated to your purpose.
You need to spend time on what you love, even (and especially!) when you don’t love it; to practice the guitar even when your fingers hurt, to avoid eating that ice cream even when you feel sad and lonely, to find the courage to get out of your comfort zone even when your logic wants to keep you safe!
That is what it takes to become the person you want to be.
I wonder, who do you want to be? And what actions don’t you take?
Do you want to find out?
