Every year we upgrade the operating systems on our devices to the latest and greatest. Often this means vast improvements and many more features than the previous version.
But how often do our operating systems of life get upgraded? Our values, our processes and the way we make decisions.
Every day people do things they don't want to, because of some way of thinking that hasn't changed in a long time. What holds us back from changing the way we live our lives? Why can't we change the way we think just as often as our devices do. Sure, the fundamentals won't often differ dramatically, but everything else is plastic.
Don't want to go to work today? What's causing that? Why don't you just not go to work?
I need to pay the bills.
Otherwise I won't be able to live the way I'm used to.
A never ending cycle created by tunnel vision. The idea that you're supposed to live a certain type of way is causing you to do something every day that you don't want to do. If you were to be hit by a bus on the way home from work, would you be proud knowing your last day on Earth was doing something you didn't want to be doing? What creates this thought pattern and how can you change it?
Just like our devices we can change the way we think. The greatest thing? It doesn't take hundreds of people and hundreds of hours developing the fastest way to respond from a click, it comes from within.
Don't listen to the voice in your head that says,
You have to do this.
Or better yet, think about where that voice is coming from. Why is it there?
Everyone secretly knows what they want to do. Even if you don't, you certainly know what you don't want to do.
