It's a brand new year. Why not make a brand new you as well? You might not want to change yourself. Why mess with perfection? Or you may only want to make some small changes. That's cool. But maybe you're ready for something more. Maybe this is your year to make yourself into that person you've always wanted to be. You may not think it's possible to reinvent yourself. But I assure you, it is.
Boredom isn't a great reason for reinvention. And the novelty of change won't be enough to keep you motivated. You'll have to really want to change. But if you're dissapointed with what life has been so far, and if the coming of a new year is another reminder of how short life is, and how little time you may have left, this blog's for you.
I created IncredibleAdvantage.com for people who want to make big changes to their life, and big differences in the world with the lifetime they have left. And here's how we can help you do that...
Inside your head there are four switches that control everything you feel, think, say, and do. Everyone has the same four switches, but everyone's switches are set differently.
You can take control of your switches, and set them any way you want. You can make subtle or radical changes in who you are - and what you're capable of.
Your Comparison Switch controls how you see the world and your place in it. And the perspectve created by this switch has a powerful affect on your choices and behavior. How the world sees you is heavily influenced by that behavior. And so your Comparison Switch also has a great deal of control over how the world sees you as well.
Your Competence Switch controls how you manage relationships, including intimate, family, professional, and casual relationships. If you struggle to get along or get ahead, that's your Competence Switch at work - expressing itself just as it has been set to.
Your Context Switch controls how you make decisions. If you make great ones or bad ones, fast ones or slow ones, or if you simply postpone decisions or analyze until the opportunity passes, that's your Context Switch.
Your Confidence Switch controls how you feel about all that other stuff. How does the way you view your place in the world make you feel? How does the way you relate to other people make you feel? How do the decisions you make make you feel?
In other words, how do YOU make you feel? And what would YOU like to change?
You can become a much more capable, powerful, fulfilled person. And you can achieve what you want to do while becoming who you want to be. Assessments, therapists, diplomas and experiences DO NOT control who you are or what you do. YOU control you.
And when you control your switches, you can take control of every aspect of you.
If you've invested in education, appearance, and opportunities to get ahead in the past, why not try investing in yourself? Why not invest in getting to know, like, respect, and fully control you?
Over the coming weeks, we'll look more deeply at these switches. When you take charge of your switches, you’ll create incredible power in and through your life.
We’ll look at the exponential value of your four switches next, then we’ll look at your starting point for change, your Comparison Switch. We’ll look at the power of your Competence Switch after that. And then we’ll discover the key to personal change, your Context Switch. We’ll go on to consider the lynchpin switch, your Confidence Switch.
And I hope along the way, you'll be inspired to put all of this information together and use it right away to take full control and make massive, sweeping change in your life.
You CAN live the life you've always wanted in 2017. Just take charge of your switches, and make it happen!
