When you look at yourself in the mirror in the bathroom every morning, do you like what you see? Do you feel satisfied and content that the person staring back at you is living a life of meaning and fulfilment, in all areas of their life? Are you asking yourself questions like, “How did I get here” and then not liking the answer or the picture you get in your mind? Yes I am sure that there are areas in your life that are working and you are on track, but I am sure that there are areas in your life, which you feel could be improved.

The secret to start moving your life back in the direction you want it to go, is to realise that the areas of your life, which are unsatisfactory, did not become like that in an instant. You did not go to sleep one night with everything on track and wake up the next morning in a very different place. The way our lives go off track, is as a result of one small bad decision at a time. The gradual decline in our lives is the result of numerous poor decisions repeated over a very long time.

Does your Tyre have a Slow Puncture?

The flat tyre we experience in our life is the result of a very slow puncture and very seldom the result of a blow-out. The slow leaks of air from your tyre, every day or rather the poor decisions, where you felt it was better to enjoy pleasure in the moment and to watch 5 hours of television every night, rather than reading and educational, inspirational or transformational book. All add up over time into the unsatisfactory results you get to enjoy.

So if your tyre is flat because of years of neglect and poor decisions, today is the day to finally make a better choice and to choose to replace the tyre, with a new version. One, which will make better choices and eliminate all bad choices, one which will apply daily discipline to everything they do and slowly pull their life back on track. You can’t change the fact that the tyre has gone flat or even the way it went flat, but you can choose to replace the tyre and make better choices from this moment forward.

Reverse the Damage

The beauty of this process, where you slowly moved yourself off track, with consistent poor decisions and got yourself into a place you did not like. Is that it does not only work to destroy, it can also be used in a positive fashion to build too. Make the right decision today and remove your need for instant gratification, accept that by delaying your gratification and introducing a dose of daily discipline, you can gradually pull your life back on track.

My message today is really simple. If you are not happy with the person, who stares back at you in the mirror every morning, then it is time to make that crucial shift away from neglect and consistent poor choices, towards daily discipline and positive activity. Do not wait until your tyre is completely flat, before you begin the journey to get your life back on track. Make a positive choice right now and use the very gradual process, which got you into the place you hate, to slowly and inexorably move you back on track. Those daily positive actions, when repeated over time will gradually re-inflate your tyre and put you on the path of success and meaning.

Action Idea:

Know what you want
Examine your life. “Do you have that in your life right now”?
If you do not, then examine your daily routine. Is it aligned with what you want?
If not introduce a few new daily habits to support your vision and goals.
Keep taking action, every day.
Measure your progress
Reward your progress
Gradually pull your life back on track
This process is really simple to do, but unfortunately, it is also easy not to do. Make the choice to finally get your life back on track. Make the few crucial changes you need to make today and over time you will gradually evolve into the person you want to be.
