This one is simple. When your values are clashing, you get stuck.
Let’s say you value success (business, sports, girls, whatever). And you also value comfort.Success needs determination, hard work and sacrifice. So the opposite of comfort.
Each day you are faced with numerous questions.
- Wake up early?
- Go to the gym?
- Make the sales call?
- Party on a Friday?
The problem with clashing values is that sometimes you will make decisions that are guided by comfort, and sometimes by success. You start pulling into success, and after a while back into comfort.
Ongoing swinging, which results in you moving nowhere – being stuck.
If you KNOW your values, and prioritize them, there are no more questions.
It becomes dead simple.
Before any difficult action, you just have to consult your value hierarchy.
And as always, understanding this intellectually is fun. Makes you feel good. But the real results come from doing it.
If you need help, let me know. If you’ll be mentored by me, we’ll do this together. Otherwise I can send you to my man Pistolic who taught me this.
