Work hard. Get a plan. Have a process. Use good tools. Create a support system. None of this is rocket science and you can find this knowledge in any number of high end online courses and self help books. So why the low commitment of many who want to make use of self help products?
What is the actual work of growth? What makes coaching /books/prefab courses work for some and not others? My theory is based on my experience and those that I have personally witnessed. There is an image of an acorn in this link. Therein lies the secret. The acorn by it’s very form and identity is committedthrough it’s sole purpose, the only reason that it is in existence- to become a great oak tree. 100% committed. It doesn’t lie in wait for an opportunity for any other activity except to grow.
Humans are a little more complex. We grow up with scripts. We learn bad habits that need to be reprogrammed. We develop limiting belief systems. We accept defeat far too easily. We hesitate to believe in our ability to succeed and gain positive results. The Oak Tree knows that in order for trees to grow in different areas and have a great chance, it’s seeds have to be buried and spread far out from under it’s own shade. The seeds are spread by animals eating them, and storing a cache for later. So it gives up part of its precious season’s work to the squirrels. A necessary investment for long term propagation.
The little nut that gets buried for next season finds opportunity in sun warmed soil, never questions it’s purpose and sets forward in growth. It does not hesitate under the right conditions. It does not forecast for storms, or fires, wars or drought, it merely sets forth growth with purpose.
Potential +Purpose+ Opportunity via positioning and Investment with total Commitment. What stops you from growth?
