Becoming the Person you Want to Become

You can become the person you want to become. Here’s how:

Step 1: Decide who you want to become
Step 2: Identify the process required
Step 3: Implement the process everyday
Step 4: Occasionally review your progress. Reward yourself if you are doing well. If you aren’t, identify the obstacles slowing down your progress and remove them from your life.
Give it time.

– Deciding who you want to become also means deciding who you do not want to become. That means making sacrifices.

– The process you identify will be difficult, perhaps even painful, for a long time.
Implementing the process everyday means developing discipline and often saying “No” to having a good time with your loved ones, or comfort, or other things that are difficult to say “No” to.

– Reviewing your progress requires honest self-criticism. It means looking in the mirror, and seeing you for what you really are, and that many often not feel good.

 

You can become whoever you want to become, if you are willing to endure sacrifice, difficulty, and pain, if you are ready to say “No” all the time, if you are willing to be honest with yourself, for years on end.
