“The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.” ~Muhammad Ali
Today’s Mind Bullet Monday tackles a concept that spans the human journey of growth and change: evolve.
What sparked this episode was remembering Kobe Bryant. When he started in the NBA he was young and brash, but he evolved. He entered the league as a talented athlete and exited as an example of work ethic, maturity, generosity, and grace.
Surviving and evolving means adapting to change. Think about Madonna or other great artists with staying power. They’re still relevant over time because they continue to evolve.
So what’s the connection between habit and evolution? Habit means character (its Latin root is habitus). What is nobler than evolving your character—to take your habits and intentionally direct them toward your goal?!
Ask yourself, how am I intentionally evolving over the next 5-10 years?
Listen in for more on habit as intentional evolution; adapting to survive, thrive and grow; and how to figure out who you want to become—and find the habits to help you get there.
Enjoy the episode!
Note: A great example of reinvention and evolution is George Foreman. The book Pscycho Cybernetics, by Maxwell Maltz, discusses George Foreman and his reinvention from not-well-liked boxer to a lovable, kind character, earning him millions back in the ring and as a grilling endorser.
