I know the kind of resolutions you’re likely to set for yourself. The most common, with no exception, is weight loss or getting into shape. Perhaps getting organized with your life and work. Quitting smoking. Traveling the world. Learning a new skill. Or maybe saving some money for the future.
But the truth is, no matter what you decide to achieve, according to studies, you are likely to fail within the first week of February. Like it or not — that’s the reality. We get ambitious, set goals (because everyone else is doing the same), and then hit the dust, going back to our previous not-so-cool routine of life.
Have you ever thought about why this happens? Why are we more likely to lose the battle of transforming our life? And, most importantly, is there any way to get out of this riddle?
If you ask me, I would say — yes, there are ways to redesign your life. There are ways that can bring you closer to achieving what you truly want for yourself to make your life better.
But wait, how do I know that?
Three years ago, I left my 9–5 job and embarked on a new career from scratch. Today, I am living the life I always dreamed of. I work from anywhere, as long as I have a laptop with me, earning a decent income that keeps my life trouble-free. Most importantly, I am now the proud father of two amazing cats and everyday I feed more than 50 sparrows. Yes — you read it right, and perhaps, I will share more about them in a future post.
What I’m trying to convey is that it’s possible to transform your life, especially when your current way of life is causing you distress. The initial step involves rebooting your mind by unlearning what you’ve learned so far about life — and of course, adopting a new philosophy of life.
How can you achieve this?
By following the old-school practice of reading some amazing books and thinking about them deeply. These are books that can alter your outlook on life, teach you things that nobody has ever shared with you before, and guide you in deciding what steps is needed to make your upcoming time better than ever before.
