It’s hard to find a person who doesn’t want to improve – to make real changes in their lives.
It’s also hard to find many who have a plan for effecting that change.
That’s because change is difficult. It requires an understanding of the problem or situation and a game plan to respond.
But often that is the easy part, believe it or not.
The hard part is sticking to the plan.
Change never happens overnight. Sometimes you have to work hard to nudge things just a very little. Folks get discouraged and frequently give up.
Significant change comes when you succeed as little as 10% of the time.
You’re ability to live in the present, for example, is improved greatly if you fail at 90% of the things you’re trying, but succeed at only 10%.
Same is true in sports.
Your golf game gets better not when you hit the ball like The Masters champion but when you hit the ball 10% better than you used to.
So, try the 10% rule and stick with it.
Oh, one more thing.
It’s really hard to know what exactly 10% better is so be prepared for much more then start by setting a realistic goal.
“When you’re trying to motivate yourself, appreciate the fact that you’re even thinking about making a change. And as you move forward, allow yourself to be good enough” – Alice Domar
