Winners Grow Anyway

Getting Stuck is Normal But Winners Grow Anyway

Ramit Sethi

We all get stuck

Some of us choose to stay stuck

And I say choose because getting stuck is a choice

Its excuses over action

Rather than looking for a way around

When you decide you dont want to be stuck rather than just saying you dont want to be stuck then you can grow

And that problem becomes a possibility

Choose Your Pain

Long term reward normally has a short term pain…

For example I have Exercise induced asthma which is a weird combonation because long term, Exercise helps manage the asthma but short term after a run for example it causes a bit of a choughing fit.

On the other end of the scale we have short term pleasure which normally resulys in long term pain if repeated.

Lets go for a weird example and say someone starts watching porn (In a relatiobship) which as a one off or on occasion isnt an issue but if the porn watching contines, you get the short term pleasure of the quick relese, but the long term pain is that the porn starts interfearing with the intamacy between you and your partner…

The sex life is compromised and then the relationship starts to fall apart…

Where as if they went through the short term pain of not masterbating for one night so they had the sexual desire for their partner the next this would result in long term reward (Providing that the rest of the relationship was spot on)

Obvisioly a bit of short term pleasure every now and then isn’t an issue but eventually you have to decide what you want for the rest of your life, becuse which ever one you choose the long term is geting effected.

There is only one finish line.

There is only one finish line.

Sometimes the sheer fact that there is no finish line is so overwhelming, we dont do anything.

In our bodies – we have to keep exercising, keep eating healthy to stay fit and healthy.

In our businesses – we have to keep making more sales, more marketing

In our relationships- we have to keep the fire alive

So we don’t do anything, we avoid the work, it’s too hard and we are not willing to do it…

Over and over and over and over again, every day.

But there is no finish line isn’t exactly true.

There is a finish line

And that line is death.

So in life we can choose to avoid the work and live in this dream like reality where we are not happy with who are and we fantasie about who we can become, but never doing anything about it…

Or we can do the work daily.

We can go from a place of where we are today, to a place of who we want to be tomorrow.

And live a life with meaning and purpose instead of fantasies.

We all hit the finish line

The question is how are you running the race

When it’s not on your doorstep

When it’s not on your doorstep

What do you do?

Do you wait until another event rolls around closer to you or do you travel the distance.

I’ve been to several events 100s of miles away from where I live, long train or coach journeys, hotels etc.

At the same time in Facebook groups I see people asking will this event be in X place or y place…

Because they don’t want to travel.

Yet even if it was on there doorstep, would they go?

I don’t know… but the question is if its really worth something to you

How far are you willing to go?
