In life, we often must adjust certain factors that influence to achieve optimal personal growth. There are many small, beneficial changes we can make in our lives, and there are just as many negative aspects that could be eliminated. To maximize your personal growth, you must make small adaptations to your environment to best suit your needs. A systemic micromanagement of your environment, your actions and your mindset is required to produce the level of change that you desire.
I’m assuming you want to be the best possible version of yourself. If you think you’re perfect, or that you couldn’t stand to improve in any regard, I recommend reading a different blog. Albert Einstein said it best, “Once you stop learning, you start dying”.
As men, we must take steps to assess our environment’s efficiency. If we find an aspect of our lives is lacking, we must take control,.changing that aspect for the better. Got shitty friends? Get rid of them. Poor diet? Buy some fucking vegetables. Just plain lazy? Take a cold shower and do something productive. It really doesn’t matter what changes you want to make, so long as you’re actively adjusting your environment to reflect your goals.
I want to boil this down as practically as I can here. I want you to be able to read this article and immediately convert my words into tangible action. Here’s a tip for you that will be useful to immediately (and effectively) micromanage your life:
Go for a walk in the mornings
Morning walks are great for many reasons. They’ll get your blood flowing, kickstart your metabolism for the day, and even give you some warm, oh-so-useful vitamin D. In Tony Robbins’ “Hour of Power” seminar, he recommends taking an hour in the morning to set yourself up for success. I highly recommend checking it out. He discusses incredibly valuable information ranging from breath pattern adjustment to the formation of positive daily habits. Tony Robbins’ is a man who understands the value of daily value-added adjustment of environs.
What I’m trying to say here is that we must constantly be improving our lives for the better. Where do you spend most of your time? For most of us, it is probably some combination of at work and at home. Look around your regular environment in those two places. It’s highly likely that you ought to make some adjustments, and you’ve probably been planning to change things up for a while. Change is essential to growth. Not only that, but changing things around us, even trivial things, will put us into a slightly different mindset. We’ll start to see things in a new light, and that new insight is what can allow us to manually shift our viewpoint in an intentionally positive, beneficial direction.
This is about more than being in a mindset geared towards change. This is about taking stock of your life. This is about seeing everything from an objective point of view, and then taking action to shift it towards your desire. All we have to do is take command of our circumstances; we must thrust our will forwards and blaze a trail of change through all inadequacies.
Most people are unsatisfied with one thing or another. Fucking change it! It doesn’t have to be some huge thing. Fix something. Just do it. Change something, make it better.
Once you’re in the mindset of “How can I make things better?”, you will produce an aura of systemic change that can only be achieved by painstaking micromanagement. We’re all dissatisfied; let’s start acting like it. At first you will struggle against your own mind. You’ll have to force yourself to take drastic action, to break out of your day-by-day bondage.
Believe me, the world is run by people who take control. The world is owned by people who were tired of their circumstances, and who seized the moment and made it better. Figure out what needs to be done, and do it. That’s all there is to it.
