In both myself, my students and those who are out in the world doing BIG things with their life, the people who have the most mind-blowing transformations have these 5 traits in common…
1. THEY’RE COURAGEOUS
They know that nothing great was ever created in their comfort zone.
They’re willing to face their fears and step into the unknown in spite of the doubts and limiting beliefs they experience along the way.
They don’t WAIT to feel confident to act, they BUILD confidence through taking action.
“Courage is not the lack of fear. It is acting in spite of it”~ Mark Twain
2. THEY’RE RADICALLY RESPONSIBLE
They don’t fight for their limitations or play the blame game.
They take 100% responsibility for their life and making sh*t happen.
Instead of saying “I can’t do this because of X, Y Z.”
Big Life Creators ask themselves, “How can I make it happen with the resources that I do have?”
“The moment you accept responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you gain the power to change anything in your life”~ Hal Elrod
3. THEY PLAY TO WIN
They go all in.
No more playing to ‘not lose’ just to stay safe.
They back themselves, cultivate self-belief and put themselves out there.
They are prepared to risk failure and judgement and choose to see any challenges as opportunities to grow and improve.
“Everyone falls down. Getting back up is how you learn how to walk”~ Walt Disney
4. THEY’RE COMMITTED
They’re in it for the long haul.
They’re committed to their vision, to their personal growth and to becoming the person they need to be to create the life they want.
This takes consistency, resilience and tenacity.
“Most people overestimate what they can do in a year, and underestimate what they can do in 10”~ Tony Robbins
5. THEY EMBRACE MESSY ACTION
They choose to let go of perfectionism because they know it’s the enemy of creation.
They give themselves permission to experiment and to take beautiful imperfect action.
Because they know that action will give them clarity and momentum in the direction of their Big Life.
“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”~ Andy Warhol
There was a time when Joe and I were stuck in perfectionism, talking about our dreams but doing nothing about them and playing it safe because we were scared to take the leap.
We KNOW these ^^ traits can be learnt and practiced because that’s what we’ve embodied in the process of transforming our life.
The Simplicity of Change
Creating your Big Life – aka your most soul fulfilling life – is actually quite simple.
You decide what you want, and you take consistent action to confirm that decision.
But simple doesn’t always mean easy.
That’s why these traits are so crucial to your success.
Because the gap between where you are now and the life you truly want is the person you need to BECOME.
Which trait resonates the most with you to help you take your life to the next level?
