The SWITCH APPROACH
The key to improving oneself is Change. Now, here are the strategic switches you can follow to become a better you:
SWITCH FOR a Bigger Self.
*You may have that childhood dream of living in an isolate paradise where everything is abundant and life is comfortable. But guess what, it does not help you much in growing yourself. You need to envision yourself as someone who is capable of taking risks, solving big problems and dealing well with the most unlikable persons you could imagine.
SWITCH OFF Biased Thinking.
*Over-optimism and over-pessimism won't serve you the best. You need to balance both. Be optimistic to have the energy to continue your journey, and be pessimistic to avoid possible downfalls.
SWITCH TO B.O.L.D Goals.
*Don't stick too much to S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Resource-oriented, Time-bound) goals simply because it ignores changes, insults your potential and kills your passion and creativity. Instead, aim for B.O.L.D (Big, Optimistic, Liberating, Dramatic) goals.
SWITCH FROM the Busy Life.
*Stop acting like a superhero who is trying to solve the problem of everybody. It will just waste your precious time & energy and make other people irresponsible. Instead, set your own agenda, list down the tasks which you can do best and can make the most impact to yourself and to the people around. In short, know and follow your VOICE/PATH and learn to say "NO" to others' agenda.
SWITCH ON Bullet-speed
Learning, Connecting and Acting!
*They say, "success has no shortcuts", I say, "YES, it has." A lot of people have already reached where you want to be right now, and they have their own stories of struggles, mistakes and failures. To learn from it is a big shortcut, and to ask help from them is like riding a chopper towards your workplace in a city. However, to achieve it all, you will still need to EXERT A TON OF EFFORT - it's the number 1 non-negotiable component for creating a WELL-IMPROVED SELF.
