- Change your strategy - perhaps what you are doing is wrong, or misguided, or isn't helping you!
- Change your story - what is the story of yourself. The greatest people said, I'm going there, and they went there...
- Change your state (the most important) - if you want happiness, act happy, MOVE!
On my mountain bike ride last night, I purposefully went a little longer than I had planned to keep the message going. He had some good points... Now, on to the real core of this post: why the hell would a successful dude like me listen to these - HA!
Simple: doesn't every 35-year-old-divorced-and-now-single-technology-minded-mountain-bike-junkie-male have to look inwardly? Isn't that some kind of rule? As for why, well let me answer that with a story. When I was about 6/7/8-years-old I saw the mountains for the first time in Colorado. It was at that point I created a story for myself - I would do whatever it took to be living comfortably in the mountains. At the age of 22, I completed this goal. And I'm still accomplishing it, everyday. And I'm very grateful for all of the wonderful memories and adventures. But after my divorce 2 years ago, my story didn't seem to excite me as much!?!?! And I'm still wondering if I have a new story... And after last week, when I saw Robbins, I started thinking deeper about what I'm doing (my strategy). Hmm... So I figured why not go a little deeper. Enter the tapes.
