Just believing in something is enough in achieving it.
Tactics and how-to’s are secondary.
When you want to make a sandwich for the first time. You don’t go search for the best way to do it.. You just go and make. You believe that you can make it and have lunch. No complications needed.
So the same goes for any objective you have. If you truly believe it will be achieved. It will be achieved. It’s just a matter of belief.
I know that I can doubt myself from time to time. That’s why I write down things. I just want my future self to be aware that I once thought this way.
Ultimately I think I can outsource the fact of believing in myself. I can just encourage others in believing in what I "used to say". Then following the logic of them getting their worldviews reinforced by once said words, they will succeed themselves and prove my saying right.
It’s complicated. But I’ve put down my chain of thought on my notepad. It’s about 3 hrs worth of thinking and writing. Non-stop.
I’m grateful I’m keeping at my habits. I think that I should be doing them less with my consciousness and let myself flow I little bit. I’m tried of caring about anybody things.
Seriously. It’s emptying my batteries.
Do more of these, the less you’ll care.
I need to take a more holistic approach in where I play with the assets I acquired over the last year and half. That includes Tim Ferriss Musing, Seth Godin’s non-marketing, Ramit’s human psychology, NichePursuit tools, Mixergy’s mindset, Kevin Kelly’s detachment, Josh Waitzkin’s resilience, Tara Brach’s acceptance, and Derek Sivers’ happiness.
That’s me. The more I’m true to my inner-beliefs the easier it becomes.
I can talk about the technicalities and about what I have done today and what needs to be done tomorrow, or I can look at from the top of a mountain, where all the people I just mentionned are watching me coming to them. I’m tiny, walking, roaming on the vast plateau thinking about the shortest distance to climb up there.
It’s not easy and it shouldn’t be. Otherwise it doesn’t make any sense in the world. because, just by looking around 99% don’t find it easier neither. Otherwise everyone is happy. Which is not the truth.
One thing to keep in mind, is that taking braking, where you have to change the space you’re in, even if you don;t feel like it. Even if you think you got under control, even if you think you don’t need it. Go and change your mind a bit. Come back at it with fresh mind. New oxygen in the brain.
I have changed my mind a great deal on what I should be doing after I came back from my walk. Tactics are not all, and should not be pursued blindly, think of the big picture and where the tactics fit in that big picture
