What is the secret for improving almost anything in your life? It’s the same simple secret to start turning around your marriage, even when you’re about to walk out.
Here it is:
“If there’s anything you’re not happy about–in your relationships, in your health, in your career–make a decision right now about how you’re going to change it immediately.” – Tony Robbins
What is the secret to turning almost any situation in your life around?
Make a decision!
I know it sounds overly simplistic and it is, but there is tremendous power in a real, committed decision.
Many people think they’re making a real decision when the truth is they’re not at all.
In actual fact they’re dabbling, getting their toes wet a little bit, having a diet soda with a rack of ribs to ease their conscience … but it’s not the type of decision that cries out declaring:
“NO MORE” or “NEVER AGAIN!”
And that’s the type of decision you need to turn things around.
The type that “burns your bridges” – no going back and the only option is forward.
Watch the short video clip below and see how a guy makes that type of decision in under 10 minutes to go home and save his marriage and turn things around 180 degrees.
What it shows is that it’s possible to turn tricky situations around quickly.
Never believe it’s over until you’ve shown up with all you’ve got. Only then can you walk away in defeat.
Truly powerful don’t you agree.
Consider these few questions for your own situation:
Which area of your life needs a real decision right now?
What would happen if you showed up today committed to improving things?
What could you marriage/life be like 6 months from now if you truly showed up committed to improving things?
What’s preventing you from make a real decision?
