Lesson 7: The Judgement Day
Making a decision doesn’t mean that you’ll take irresponsible actions, it means you take 100% responsibility and pick the direction you want to move towards. It could mean quitting your job (if you have the back-up and a clear path), moving to a new place or slowly transitioning into your new life and making small bold decisions as you move forward.
But you must decide. If you don’t, you’ll always stay in your head and fear will paralyze you before you know it.
Embrace the exploration mindset where you find out what’s meaningful to you by trying it out. By now, you’ll at least have a general sense of what direction you want to pick.
No matter what you pick, you must take daily actions towards success starting today. It’s okay if you find out later that it isn’t really something you want to do, but you’ll never know unless you give it a shot.
Today’s action is simple: Write your personal mission statement. Here are a few examples of strong life purposes from Leo Gura:
