As some of you who follow the blog might know, I am really ambitious. I like to work out, I try to eat well and I care a lot about the arts. But I am at a point in life wherein think about “stepping it up a notch” a lot. I want to buy a flat in central London, I’d like to move up in my career as take on a COO or CEO role in the next 5-7 years. I also want to live life to its fullest when it comes to friends, family and having a lot of fun.
A while back, I saw the movie Limitless. In the film, a character played by Bradley cooper Takes a pill that allows him to use 100% of his brain. He finishes a book he has been trying to write in four days, he learns languages in no time at all, he cares about his appearance and generally becomes the best version of himself (self improvement month as he tries to explain to his girlfriend). I have zero hope that a pill will be developed to do this for me, so I have decided to take matters into my own hands. I know it is already March but I have resolved to a new resolution! I’ve decided that I am going to do a series of 30 day challenges (one month each) where read one self improvement/success book each month and choose one behaviour to practice and engage in during that time. My goal is to improve myself mentally, culturally and physically. Why 30 days? Well, technically, it will be one month long, however long that month might be. I’ve chosen this to 1) help keep me in my toes and 2) to mix things up a bit to see what I like to do.
So, for the first month, I’ve decided that the book I’ll read is The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz. As for my challenge, I plan to do one thing each day to expand my cultural awareness and engage my culture side a bit more. Stay tuned as I update you on how things are going during the month and what it’s like! My hope is to create a series of resources if you want to follow along with any of the 30 Day Challenges. Here I go!
