Small Sparks Keep Great Fires Burning

Message/Experiment of the Week:

Small sparks (actions) lead to great fires (results). What fires are you sparking in your life? Tony Robbins says if you want results you need to ritualize them through daily actions. If you want to get in better shape those daily actions could be walking a mile, lifting weights, and doing sit-ups each day. If you want to get in better financial shape a daily action could be investing ten dollars in a S&P 500 Index Fund every day…. and the list goes on and on. The key is to take daily consistent action toward the results you want and make them a daily ritual so that they don’t fade away like your new year’s resolutions. These small sparks of daily action can keep fires burning and lead to great fires of achievement in your life.

For an experiment this week, figure out three actions you will take every day to get the results you want in your life. Each night, evaluate whether you completed the actions. If not, figure out what you need to do the next day to complete the actions.

Quotes of the Week:

  • "What is the world's greatest lie?" the little boy asks. The old man replies, "It's this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That's the world's greatest lie." ―Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

  • “With deliberate practice, however, the goal is not just to reach your potential but to build it, to make things possible that were not possible before. This requires challenging homeostasis—getting out of your comfort zone—and forcing your brain or your body to adapt.” ―Anders Ericsson, Peak
