It’s the exact reason why I read as many books as I do. Each of these offer me a perspective that is hard to see on my own.
We all have beliefs that hold us back, and by identifying what they are, we can change them. I change my belief from “my world is about to crumble” to “this year is going to be fucking awesome.” From this belief my behavior followed.
And more so, how is that belief working out for you?
But how could being the best version of yourself be stupid?
It starts by the action that you take, right now, in this moment, and the next moment, and the next moment after that. It’s not about accomplishing all of your goals today, it’s about growing a little bit today in the direction of your dreams.
Every time I’ve been willing to surrender and allow myself to learn from others. I no longer live my life from a place of fear, and instead wake up ready to rise to the challenge every day.
It’s easy to make a “decision” to live an EPIC life. Just look at how many people fail their New Years resolutions. Do you know the difference between those who succeed and those who don’t? And over time all of this growth compounds into the life you’ve always dreamed of. Maybe you even think “personal development is stupid.” I know I did.
“The presence of these charismatic raptors highlights the environmental progress that’s been made in our region, and underscores the opportunities for people to help Ospreys prosper here. The Bay Area’s Peregrine Falcon cameras have been popular for a while too. Ospreys are one of nature’s wildest raptors, yet they are now choosing to breed near people – even using human-made structures like the Whirley Crane.
So in 2009 I changed my mind, and committed to learning how to be the best version of myself every single day. It all happened over time, through every decision I made, in every moment, of every day.
When I used to think personal development was stupid my life was a complete mess: What I was doing… And it all came down to who I was, and how I was showing up every day.
Golden Gate Audubon’s new Osprey nest cams operate 24/7, with infrared cameras allowing night viewing without disturbing the birds.
The Whirley Crane pair have been named Richmond (for the location of the nest) and Rosie (for the Rosie the Riveter historical monument nearby).
From a Red Sox perspective, however, it had to feel not only great, but also a little bit like deja vu.
