Why Doesn’t it Stick?
This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Bob.
I listen to so many things and I attend so many seminars and webinars. But why is it that nothing seems to stick? I don’t have the life-changing experiences in my thinking, my attitude, and my vibrations that I’m looking for.
This is something that I see way too often. People believe that studying, listening to someone, reading books, and attending seminars will magically change their lives.
But unfortunately, it’s not that easy.
It’s not enough to just take in all that knowledge. What you must do is change the way you think.
Until you change the habitual way that you think, nothing changes.
What does this mean in practice?
It means that you must take the principles you learn from all those sources and think about how you can apply them to your daily life.
Everything that you learn needs to be applicable to everything you do every single day.
But it’s not just about how you think about all those principles…
It’s about how you think through them while applying them in your daily life.
I know this from my own experience.
Back in the early 90s, I used to listen to a whole bunch of speakers talking about how to become wealthy.
But listening to them alone didn’t bring any change to my life.
It wasn’t until I started asking some crucial questions that things began to shift.
“How do I control and raise my income?”
“What does it take to make a sale and give my income a boost?”
Once I answered these questions, along with a few more, my income went from $50,000 per year to $50,000 per month.
It all comes down to cause and effect.
Change doesn’t happen on its own and you can’t expect to evolve by merely absorbing knowledge.
Take what you learn, apply it to your life in a concrete way, and you’ll start seeing changes.
