Yesterday, speaker and author Jeff Yalden drilled down on Day Seven of The BOOM 28 Day Boot Camp: Creating a Life of Success. Find Motivation. Crush Goals. Overcome Obstacles. Live with Purpose.
Jeff talked about going over everything laid out in the past week, and making the commitment to go all-in with your plan.
Did you do that? Did you commit?
If you didn’t commit – stop and go back now.
If you are all-in, you are ready to proceed.
DAY EIGHT: PATIENCE IN THE PROCESS
“I don’t want you to be overwhelmed,” Yalden said. “Remember: This is about one goal, one task. It’s about that one decision – so today you are going to think to yourself, ‘I am going to be patient.’”
Jeff has long believed “overnight success” takes between 15 and 20 years to achieve.
“One of the problems is that many of us have a sense of entitlement, thinking the world maybe owes us something. The world owes you nothing. Your mom and dad don’t owe you anything other than maybe shelter, food, covers – and hopefully unconditional love. But I know many people who don’t even have that.”
We need to create our own success and our own opportunities – and the results can be far from immediate, according to Jeff.
“The little things we do today – over and over – become bigger and stronger and more fulfilling later. You don’t show up at work on a Monday and get paid so you go work Monday through Friday. You work Monday through Friday. You get paid hopefully the end of the week – but most likely the next Friday.”
Be patient. Work the program.
“That’s one of the biggest things. You have to work it every single day,” he said. “I don’t want you to give up when you are getting frustrated or getting tired. I want you to continue. Remember: It’s patience in the process – but it’s also progress every single day.”
Be better be better today than you were yesterday. Be better tomorrow than you were today. Make progress every day.
Jeff often talks about a three-point process when it comes to patience.
- Self-Value: Believe that you can achieve whatever you are going for.
- Attitude: A little thing that makes a big difference.
- Choices: It takes 2 seconds to make a bad choice and some 30 years to make up for that bad choice. Make the right choices every day.
In his Amazon bestseller, BOOM! One Word to Inspire Action, Deliver Rewards, and Positively Affect Your Life Every Day, Jeff said that BOOM is a Factor and an Effect.
“If you are suffering from laziness or a lack of motivation, like, ‘I don’t want to get up,’ BOOM is a factor,” he said. “Basically, you have five seconds for the brain to switch to say, ‘OK – I’m going to do it.’ If you don’t take action in that five seconds, the brain kicks in and says, ‘you know what? I’m not going to do it.’”
BOOM is the factor that gets you going.
“BOOM is also an effect. ‘BOOM! I did it.’ BOOM! Reward.”
Have Patience in the Process. Don’t give up. Keep working hard.
