Since I started working towards the life and goals that I wanted I began to see a slow shift in my interactions with the people I once knew and people I have met since.
It's a weird phenomenon when you get a social invite from someone to go do something and in your mind it "sounds nice" but you find yourself with no desire to do it. Going and grabbing a beer with a couple people sounded like such a nice normal thing before I gave into my ambitions and now it sounds like birthday cake...it's a nice thing for occasions but is not something you have in your daily life.
There is not anything wrong with going and grabbing a beer, or meeting up with people and having a little pow-wow, but when your mind is invested into building your business, or working towards your ambitions, it is hard to turn that off.
Decompression IS essential. That is in itself a kind of balance that has been hard for me to find. As in my last post when do you step back to make room for things to come to you or when do you step forward towards what you want. Finding a decompression that does not spoil or take away from the effort and work that you put into yourself. Sometimes I find myself looking around an empty room eyes darting back-n-forth thinking, "I feel I should be doing something...what could I be doing? Is there a way I could make strides in my goals?" This makes one very choosey with how or what free time consists of.
Because of this it oddly creates that phenomenon that I mentioned. My life is consumed by my goals. I admit this fully, because if a person wants to become successful you do have to be a little mad.
I tell people that when I do not want to go be social it isn't personal, and it isn't because I am anti-social...It is simply that our actions are accumulative to the results we produce. Every action has a reaction. So going out, or waking up early to listen to a podcast, reading, taking a free course, or grabbing a daily TACFIT workout, all produces a result in our reality. It is the actions that get put into the world that gravitate similar actions to it.
I love Elliot. This video is one of my favorites. So next time you gotta tell someone "sorry, I gotta train tomorrow"; know you are not alone. Be a warrior as Elliot says...A warrior for your dreams.
