I know your time is valuable, so this will be short.
We have two forces that are in opposition in our lives. On one side we wish for stability and consistency in relationships, income, work, etc.
On the other side we want explosive success, dynamism, we want to kick ass. We want to be that person in the room that has somehow transcended the ordinary and become our own version of Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Mary Kay, Colonel Sanders, Jay Z, Gary Vaynerchuk or whomever.
But here is the plain truth.
Our lives and all lives are like solar systems, with our daily decisions and priorities orbiting like planets in patterns around whatever motivates us. These patterns have a natural”gravitational” tendency to stay in motion and move along the same path. It has another name…complacency.
So it is just easier to carry on with the same actions and the same results, then it is to make a change. Easier, but certainly not better.
A Meteor is an asteroid that abruptly moves quickly through a system and breaks through the atmosphere as a fiery ball. It is an anomaly that displaces space and forces natural change.
If you are not living the life you want, then you need to be a Meteor in your own life. You need to disrupt your own solar system.
Blast a hole through it, if necessary. How? By doing things that you have never done before. Patterns need to be broken.
Make the phone call, or set up that meeting you have been holding off on. Start the Vlog or Blog. Walk a mile, then run one.
Ask her or him out for coffee, or a date. Start that fucking project/idea that you know could change your entire world.
Sing the song, write the script, start DOING.
Think WHILE you are moving forward, instead of thinking ABOUT moving forward.
This “Meteor” will take personal courage, everything worthwhile does.
But being miserable and feeling like a failure is infinitely worse. So there is really no alternative.
If you do not, NOTHING WILL CHANGE and you are running out of time in your life, literally.
This is only way to radically alter the trajectory of your life. The only way you can control.
You change your orbit, and the whole galaxy will have no choice except to adjust.
The universe does not break, but it will bend. That bend is all you need.
You will have to take a risk, probably more than one. But at some point, Success will break your fall.
