Judgment of others is poorly used energy.
Are you a judge? Is this an Olympic sport? Are you a figure skating judge giving a score on his triple sowcow? Nope. If you are judging others, you are projecting your own insecurities and trying to make others feel bad about something you wish you had.
You may not throw out your old shoes, but you thought about it, lead with that, that’s a positive idea in your head. So just thinking about doing it, is a step in the right direction. The rest is going to be challenging for a lot of us, but possible. As good things come from being challenged.
I believe that everybody can achieve their goals with the right information. There will be some roadblocks and some obstacles for you to overcome and for about 99% of us that is enough of a deterrent to stop us from achieving our goals but if you can practice letting go of your old way of thinking and think about something in a positive mindset. Focus on the problem at hand and apply some new tools that can help fix the problem.
Now I know that you probably are not going to go and throw out your old shoes but you thought about it and that is the point. You have to be able to think about what you are going to do, some of you might go and buy new shoes, some may not, but at least everyone of you thought about it..
We have to be willing to throw out old and useless tools so that we can make room for new tools. Making the right decision requires a lot of mental bandwidth so you need to look at how you have been wasting your time using useless tools so you can replace them with new more efficient tools.
You can do this, if things get to be challenging and if you need to reflect and look back, be proud about how far you have come, the lessons you have learned as failure is the result of an attempt.
Lately I have been asking myself, “Did I give my best, and how can I do better” as perfect doesn’t exist, you can always improve.
At some point in the next 28 days you will have to implement some new tools. Now I know that you are familiar with using those old tools, you are comfortable with them.
I do promise though, with these new tools, you will be able to achieve things that you may not have been able to in the past. It will take some time and you will make mistakes, just remember, the only reason why you look back is to see just how far you have come.
Unless you create a Time Machine, then that’s different.
