"When the student is ready, the lessons and teachers will appear."
Approximately four years after presenting to IREM (Institute of Real Estate Management), James B., who witnessed The Habit Factor® presentation, finally decided to listen to the audio book.
FOUR. YEARS. LATER.
Afterward, he was excited to put habit alignment and the free habits-to-goals tracking sheet to work. He shared this story with me via email.
This week's episode is about "Bridging the Gap." Sometimes the steps we take are long and swift, and sometimes they are slow and small.
To span the bridge, we must keep moving forward.
If intelligence is goal-directed behavior, and we are "intelligent" beings, then we must set goals.
We must have an ideal to strive for, but that doesn't mean we have to be unhappy about our present circumstances. We can do both: be grateful for our present and have a goal to strive for.
At any given time, we could be at point "A" while we're attempting to arrive at point "B."
The challenge for ALL of us, in theory, is to bridge the gap between those two points.
The gap is the chasm we all have to cross at some point. This crossing happens on at least two levels: psychological and behavioral.
In order to span the gap, we must do more than just think positively; we have to take repeated, consistent action. We must forge the habits that are aligned with our goals!
This is what The Habit Factor® has taught for more than 11 years: Develop the consistent behaviors—the habits—that are aligned with your goals. This is how you create instant momentum and develop self-efficacy, the ability to produce a desired result, which, in turn, fosters happiness!
Nobody spans the gap in a single day, but you can begin bridging that gap, making progress, TODAY.
Enjoy the episode!
