With the proper exertion of desire and will

Going to happy hour with our friends might not land us a date with the man of our dreams. 

But what the experience will do is contribute to a posture and mindset and intention and proximity that will make us more receptive to the romantic opportunities we seek. 

That’s how momentum works. It’s an accumulation of moments that move the story forward. 

And so, even if we’re not in the mood, even if we don’t feel like leaving the house, and even if we have zero evidence that what we’re about to do will help us accomplish our goal, we owe it to ourselves to take action anyway. 

Doing so may not affect the outcome, but it still affects the experience. 

Each repetition develops a different nuance. It’s still an act that evokes aliveness. It’s still a way of giving confirmation to the universe that we’re moving confidently in the direction of our dreams and making progress in our journey to freedom. 

I’m reminded of a fascinating interview I heard between a physician and a cancer survivor. Recounting his diagnosis experience, the patient said that if he had kept a bad attitude about his disease, odds are, he wouldn’t have gotten better. 

Because he wouldn’t have done the necessary research on the resources that would make him better. 

He never would have found the solution that lead to the solution. 

Proving, that even if you can’t increase your success, you can still increase is your field of vision, and that allows you to notice the opportunities that lead to success. 


How are you incrementally improving until the cumulative actions add up to the revolutionary?
