What can you do starting today to change your life?

What’s the one thing you must do if you intend to take your life or business to the next level?  That’s actually a trick question because the answer is within the question.  The one thing you must do first is to decide to take your life or business to the next level.  You have to raise the bar.  You have to raise the standards you’ve set.  Here’s how….
If you are truly committed to creating change, then you have to step out of your comfort zone.  You have to establish and place higher demands on yourself.  It’s the only way.  When a client asks me what’s the very first step to take her results to a higher level in any area of her life, I tell her that you have to change the rules of the game.  You start by establishing new parameters.  What will you no longer tolerate?  What will you go after with a passion?  What will you expect of yourself?  And, oh by the way, the new standards should feel like a stretch.
Fundamentally, we understand this principle in terms of muscle development.  Weight lifters know that in order to increase strength you have to overload the muscles.  This creates tiny muscle tears.  That requires muscle repair.  The result is bigger, stronger muscles.  Once you’ve reached this new plateau of muscular strength, you have to repeat the process to produce more growth.  To grow a muscle will take raising the bar and pushing yourself beyond what you’ve been doing.  But make no mistake, whether you are changing your muscular strength or the size of your bank account, it starts with a decision.
So how do you decide?  Most of us already know exactly what we need to do today to take our lives to the next level.  We have a laundry list of the things we should be doing to create more financial abundance, to bring more passion into our relationships, to lose weight and to feel happier, but as long as those things remain on the should list, you’ve yet to make a decision.  Real change begins when you remove the options.  You draw a line in the sand.  You declare exactly what you will make happen with no turning back.  Real change is when your SHOULD becomes a MUST.
How do you do that?  Well, you’ve done it before.  Think back to a time when you changed your life with a single decision.  Maybe you stopped doing something like smoking or drinking or started doing something like exercising or eating healthier.  Maybe, you can recall a time when you said no to something very tempting and then stayed true to that choice.  Whatever your experience may have been, you’ve done this before which means you know how to do it.  You already have summoned the courage and conviction once.
Change begins when you find the courage to decide.  Today is the day you can change your life, create new results, and begin again.
