Staying at any one station in life for too long sucks!

It feels like we are stuck and the worst thing a man can be is stuck.

At a certain point, not too long ago actually, I had to admit that my life had reached a certain level and stalled. I had stopped making continued progress.

I had arrived at a level of comfort and success….and….well….just stayed there.

I pulled out of it but let’s talk about you for a minute.

Have you stopped dreaming, growing, and expanding as a man?

Is the only thing expanding in your life your waistline?

If you have been at a station in your life for too long and are feeling the angst that it produces try these three things:

  • DO NOT IGNORE IT!! Yes, I meant to yell that. It speaks for itself….you know when you are ignoring something that you should be paying attention to….don’t feed yourself lies. Get honest with yourself and focus on turning it around.
  • Take immediate action. Research, make calls, send emails, go talk to people. It does not matter what the action is. Commit to change, start the process and don’t stop. Bust your own chops if you hear yourself bellyaching about obstacles. Manage your life and your progress like you would manage an employee. Stay on top of it, own the results, and hold yourself accountable when progress slows or things go wrong. Be relentless about staying in motion and moving toward your next station in life. 
  • Get a crystal clear vision of exactly what your next step will look like and hold on to that vision as if your life depended on it (it kinda does). See that vision in your head all day every day. Obsess about the details of that next step. Keep it in your mind’s eye so you see it with clarity all day and night. Get clear on the feeling of accomplishment that will come with getting to your next station in life and get drunk on that feeling every day. Don’t get lazy and let it go…..go on the warpath and use your mental strength and self-mastery skills to forcibly push your way to the front of the line so you can take what’s yours. Powerful men get what they want in this world and you are a powerful man. You may have forgotten it for a minute but you are!

Stay with me on this. I am on the same journey as you. I will post more on this topic in the future…..I love talking about it.
