“The most valuable result of all education is to make you do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not. It is the first lesson that ought to be learned. And however early a man’s training begins, it is probably the last lesson he learns thoroughly” – Introductory quote to Og Mandino’s “The Greatest Secret in the World”
I have a confession. Listen closely, I’m going to whisper it – “I am a procrastinator”.
There I’ve said it. I have not achieved the “most valuable result” as mentioned above.
Tony Robbins tells us that we function based on pain and pleasure, and that if we can associate massive pain with not changing, and massive pleasure with changing immediately, we can change the behaviour. I am not disputing the science or the fact that this works, but I can honestly say I haven’t been able to get it to work for me.
I got very excited on Sunday when Mark said the following “Give Us 4 weeks of 100% harmony and You’ll eliminate fear & procrastination”. I can tell you that got my attention. I am doing exactly as instructed, and will be in 100% harmony for the next 4 weeks.
Watch this space, I am going to learn this lesson thoroughly.
Thanks Mark and team. I feel privileged and blessed to be part of this experience.
I’m out of here with the sound of Mark saying “DO IT NOW, DO IT NOW” still ringing in my ears, to go and do it now.
