The number that most people think will change their life is X million. X million dollars in the bank, X million visitors to their website, X million downloads, X million album sales, X million books sold, and on and on and on.
The reality is that whatever your X million is, it’s not a life changing number. It’s too easy to put on a pedestal. It’s too easy to dream about without taking action. It’s an event, not a habit.
The number that will change your life will create a daily habit.
For example, right now my number is simply “1”, as in 1 new insightful or inspirational blog post every day.
In my world, when I achieve my “1” every day, everything else will fall into place.
- If your goal is to write a book, then your number may be “10” as in, write 10 pages every day.
- If you goal is to grow your business, then your number may be “20”, as in 20 sales calls every day.
- If you goal is to lose weight, then your number may be “30”, as in a 30 minute workout everyday.
Whatever your number is, own that number. Embrace that number. Then use that number to build a daily habit that will change your life.
