Our mission for Unstoppable this year is to help 1,000 people live more proactive lives. Are you going to be one of those 1,000? In this episode, I’m going to talk about WHY getting proactive can change your life.
Today, I’m going to talk about what the end result looks like when you’re living a PROACTIVE life.
I thought this would be a good topic for today’s Unstoppable Sunday because over 1,200 people have downloaded our Unstoppable Life Planning Guide in the past week alone to start getting proactive about their lives. And I wanted to show all of you that if you put in the work, here’s what the outcome can be for you.
About 10 years ago, I woke up one morning and decided I didn’t want to be reacting to life anymore. Fast forward to today. I helped sell two companies in the past two years, and I just quit my job to just focus on myself for the year. All because I decided to get more proactive about my life 10 years ago.
BEFORE this moment where I decided to get PROACTIVE, I would approach every Sunday with this angst in my stomach — just WORRYING about Monday.
BEFORE this moment, I’d go into Monday and start counting down to the the Friday and the weekend, only to repeat the same patterns of just reacting to life again and again and again counting down from one weekend to another.
The thing is, I didn’t want to live that way anymore. I didn’t want to dread going into work, I didn’t want to just live for the weekends, I wanted to maximize my entire week and get the most out of life. But I had a job, I had bills, and I didn’t quite know how to break out of that pattern.
Until…. I decided to start taking a more proactive approach to life.
I stopped with the Netflix.
I stopped with just hoping things would change.
I stopped escaping from my reality and just counting down from one Friday to another.
And instead I started to take a more PROACTIVE approach to life.
Now on one hand, getting PROACTIVE about life sounds easy. But on the other hand, actually doing the work to face reality and start making changes in your life sounds REALLY HARD.
The thing is, changes in your reality don’t happen overnight. It didn’t for me. However, what CAN happen overnight is a change in your mindset. Your ability to snap your fingers and say ENOUGH — I’m not going to live in this REACTIVE way anymore — that’s a decision you can make right now. AFTER you do that, you’re able to start to take the steps to make changes in your reality.
TODAY, and over the past 10 years, here’s is what my PROACTIVE life looks like. Because I followed the steps on our Unstoppable Life Planning guide, I’ve got my life plan bookmarked. I’ve got a view into what I want over the next 6-years. I’ve got a view into what the next 365-days looks like. AND, I’ve got my Unstoppable Sunday pause and reflect document right here — which is now running over 200 pages!
By following the steps to plan out my Unstoppable Life, I’ve been able to unlock over a decade of productivity for myself. If you’re going through the guide right now, I encourage you to KEEP GOING! By getting a proactive life plan together for yourself, you’ll completely change your life. I did.
