My Biggest Takeaway
The 3 ingredients to making change happen
Standing outside our local Venta, sipping cold white wine, Jules posed the question, “Why aren’t more people making those changes in their lives?”
Here’s what I think…
Too many people think an imperfect step is less attractive and less transformative, so they never get started. But the truth is that big fixes are few and far between. Instead, it’s more productive to focus on what you can do each day to make your life slightly better.
Believe me, these modest improvements add up, but they’re the sort of improvements many people ignore in favour of chasing the big, instant solution that will never come.
From the moment we decided to pack up and move to Spain, we must have taken 1,000 small, imperfect steps to get to where we are today.
People only see the end result, but the small changes were a constant work in progress (and still are today).
Our life now is a quantum leap ahead of the day we arrived in Spain, and by keeping on with those little imperfect steps, our life gets better and better.
Every one of us can change our life, and I believe the secret sauce to make it happen comes down to 3 ingredients:
- Clarity (know what we want to change)
- Resourcefulness (we have all the resources we'll ever need)
- Tenacity (a big enough 'Why' to stay the journey)
The takeaway here is to make those steps and reward yourself after each one. It doesn’t matter how small, celebrate the imperfection and keep moving.
