So you have this goal that you wish to achieve? It’s a difficult goal, which of course explains why you haven’t achieved it thus far.
How do you best achieve this goal? Well that’s what this brief article is about. This article will greatly increase the likelihood of you achieving your goal; this article explains what I do, when I wish to achieve a difficult goal.
So How Do You Do It?
Well, it’s really quite simple. Let’s say you’re trying to lose weight (my favorite example). You might think the best alternative to losing weight is to change your eating patterns, and start working out.
However, this is not the best approach.
The best approach would be to significantly increase the activity that you “least despise” when it comes to losing weight. Let’s say that you “love” to eat fatty foods, and it’s very difficult to stop, but you only “slightly despise” working out.
The easier task for you would be “working out.” So working out is the positive activity that you need to increase.
If you began to workout “significantly,” as in two or more hours a day, that positive trait would eventually cause you to change your diet (your diet, in this example, being the more difficult of the two tasks).
Why Does This Work?
Because most people aren’t going to spend two to three hours a day working out, without eventually considering what they’re eating; most people aren’t willing to waste that kind of time.
In this example, the over-execution of one task is making it much easier to do another task that would otherwise be very difficult to perform.
Let’s say you that have a gambling habit. One may argue that you need to resist the urge to gamble, but I disagree. Why? Because it’s very difficult to resist an urge…
Your gambling habit is caused by a dysfunctional spiritual connection. If you spent significantly more time exercising your spiritual muscles in prayer or in meditation, the desire to perform dysfunctional activities would dissipate. The over-execution of a positive activity, one which is correlated to the negative activity, will always decrease the desire to perform the negative activity.
There’s always an easy task and a difficult task, there’s always a positive and a negative. You do the easy, and the easy will cancel out the difficult. You focus on the positive, and the positive cancels out the negative. You focus on the spiritual task, and the spiritual will take care of the non-spiritual.
This little secret will give you the power to make real change in your life; by over-executing the positive you can change the course of your destiny.
Is this easy to do? Nothing worth doing is going to be easy. It’s not easy to workout two hours a day, but it will strategically position you to succeed.
So begin to perform the one task that you “least despise,” a positive task. Commit to perform the task for at least two hours a day, and soon the task that you “most despise” will become easy and your goal will quickly be achieved.
