"Discontent is the first necessity of progress." -Thomas Edison
Is there some part of your life that you would like to improve upon?
Some part that you would like to make a drastic change?
Until your level of discontent becomes painful enough, your motivation for change will not be adequate to push you in the right direction.
To help with this I would like to share with you an exercise from Tony Robbins called the rocking chair test.
In this exercise, you make a list of all the things you want to accomplish...
Then picture yourself as an older person on the front porch of your home sitting in your rocking chair reflecting on your life.
How would you feel if you did all the things you wanted to accomplish in this life? Wouldn't it be great to have no regrets and a head full of wonderful memories to reflect upon?
On the other hand, how would you feel if there were things that you regretted not doing in your time? Now being too old to ever do the things you wanted? Your life is nearing the end and all you have is a list of regrets.
The pain of those thoughts can be a strong motivator to make the changes necessary for you make serious progress and get the most out of the time you have left.
Live with motivation and passion and you will never have to look back and say what if...
