"Sticking to a 30 day plan to change a habit can feel like forever. Unless you decide to just make the change a temporary one."
The 30-day trial is powerful concept.
Borrowed from the shareware industry, the concept is you can download a trial version of a piece of software and try it out risk-free for 30 days before you have to buy the full version. This concept caused the shareware industry to explode in a short time bringing new ideas to people a lot faster.
As a way to develop new habits, it's perfect format to use and brain-dead simple.
"You live with too many incompatibilities — people, places, objects, circumstances, and activities that just don’t mesh with the person you are on the inside."
When your external reality is out of sync with your inner self, your inner self will resist it.
This creates the feeling of wanting to escape your circumstances. You may feel powerless to make big changes, but deep down you’ll still sense a strong desire to “get out” and leave parts of your reality behind. You’ll fantasize about quitting your job, moving out, or ending a relationship.
"What does it mean to be a Real Man today?"
A man understands and respects the power of choice. He lives a life of his own creation. He knows that life stagnates when he fails to decide and flourishes when he chooses a clear path.
When a man makes a decision, he opens the door he wants and closes the doors he doesn’t want. He locks onto his target like a guided missile. There’s no guarantee he’ll reach his target, and he knows this, but he doesn’t need such guarantees. He simply enjoys the sense of inevitability that comes from pushing the launch button.
A man doesn’t require the approval of others. He’s willing to follow his heart wherever it leads him. When a man is following his heart-centered path, it’s of little consequence if the entire world is against him.
