I truly believe that you choose how you want to live your life. It’s all about your habits, your values, your choices, your beliefs and your actions.
Do you want to be in charge of your own life? Of course you do !!
Do you want to have success in your life? Of course you do !!
I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that didn’t want success or control over their own life!
So why is it that some people are better at it than others??
BECAUSE they have more ” WHY TO’s than WHY NOT TO’s
They perceive that there are more benefits of doing the things they want to do (another word for Why-To’s is Benefit)than costs of doing so (another word for Why-Not-To’s is Cost).
Your mind is like an infinite weighing machine—every moment, your mind is weighing your perceived benefit against your perceived cost of doing any behavior or activity you can think of. Do you see that every decision you make is built upon your Why-To’s and Why-Not-To’s?
To be in charge of your own life, to become successful, you need to adopt LEADERSHIP as your LIFESTYLE. You need to have more Why-To’s than Why-Not-To’s and one of the best way’s to create more Why-To’s is to REPOH
Because through REPETITION it becomes EASY. If it’s easy it is a PLEASURE. Then you’ll do it OFTEN, and that’s how it becomes a HABIT.
Thanks and love to Elise Droste for the inspiration to this blog. Elise told me that REPOH is the thoughts of Marlon Smith and that he inspired many teens during one of his motivational speeches when he was talking about leadership at the Global Youth Leadership Summit.
