Do you have some great expectations about what you want personally, in your relationships and in your career? Then you need to get a little unreasonable by taking the following six steps...
1. Live with UNREASONABLE Love
If we are fortunate to find someone and something to love, it will be so much easier for us to hang on when the going gets tough. This means that we need to develop the capacity to love: to love ourselves; to love our relationships; to love our career.
Many people find that the hardest part of the trifecta is to love their career. Many of us are not in that fortunate position where we are doing what we love to do. So how then, do we learn to love what we are doing? By making the decision to become the very best at doing it, the very best in our field. If you haven't done this already... do it now!
2. Act with UNREASONABLE speed
Speed is very impressive. When we act quickly we can avoid difficult situations. Never confuse speed with recklessness. Acting speedily means basing our decision to act on good judgement after getting all the available facts, and when the desire to move feels instinctively right. When we act with unreasonable speed our decisions will be right far more often than they are wrong.
3. Work towards UNREASONABLE teamwork
Alone, you are unlikely to ever reach your full potential, but teamwork makes dreams come true. As the saying goes "Life is much easier with a great team around you!"
4. Have UNREASONABLE determination
Determination is what binds us; it's the glue that holds our character together. When you are under pressure and feel like letting go and giving in, take a deep breath, grit your teeth and then focus on the positive outcome you will enjoy if you just hang on... don't give in. Once you have successfully done that a few times you will realise that whatever pain, discomfort or humiliation has to be endured (for a short time) will pale into insignificance and be almost forgotten when you succeed in holding on.
5. Have UNREASONABLE focus
It's impossible to stop thinking, so why not choose what you think about? Choose to think about all the things you really want in your life? Why let your mind wander when you can choose to think about good things? For the next thirty days, do not listen to news bulletins on the radio; do not watch television; do not read the newspaper. Instead, for the first thirty minutes of everyday, focus on your major goals and how you will achieve them.
6. Have UNREASONABLE focus
Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is having the inner strength to work through despair and tribulation in spite of our fear. Courage is also choosing right from wrong. All of us know the difference, and when we are able to withstand the temptations that we all get then we show courage. Remember you have more courage inside you than you will ever realise.
