One of the hardest tasks you face to develop the South Bank of your life is changing your habits. Many people never know the joy of stretching their boundaries and develop new skills or experiences but you have chosen to meet the challenge. Adrian Savage wrote an insightful piece for Lifehack that challenges you to make a change:
"Like the tiny, soft bodied creatures that build coral reefs, habits
start off small and flexible, and end up by building massive barriers
of rock all around your mind. Inside the reefs, the water feels quiet
and friendly. Outside you think it’s going to be rough and stormy.
There may be sharks. But if you’re to develop in any direction from
where you are today, you must
go outside that reef of habits that marks the boundaries of your
comfort zone. There’s no other way. There’s even nothing specially
wrong with those habits as such. They probably worked for you in the
past. But now it’s time to step over them and go into the wider world
of your unused potential. Your fears don’t know what’s going to be out
there, so they invent monsters and scary beasts to keep you inside."
Change your life one habit at a time.
