I have something pretty personal that I wanted to share with you today...
From the comments and emails I've been getting from people, it's finally starting to settle in that things have changed, and that the world is going to look noticeably different once this is all over.
For many, this is becoming a period of painful "forced transformation". All of us have areas of our lives that we've wanted to change. But change is rarely easy.
Whether it's your health, wealth, or relationships, breaking our current behavior patterns takes a significant amount of dedication, conscious effort, and discomfort.
This is why most people never do.
But every once in a while, something from the outside forces that change to take place, and that can feel like the worst of kind of all because you weren't asking for it, and you weren't ready to deal with it.
Your spouse files for divorce. You have a heart attack. Your lose your job... Or your friendly neighborhood viral pandemic shows up and destroys the global economy as we know it.
These events can be incredibly painful in the short-term because they're literally going to force you to change, and that tends to involve emotions like fear, panic, denial, anger, depression, and hopelessness.
It's going to hurt like an absolute b*tch in the short-run, but here's what I want you to know... Things don't have to stay that way...
If you CHOOSE to use this as an opportunity to break the chains that have been holding you back...
If you choose to set yourself free to become the person you've secretly been wanting to become...
An event like this can turn into the biggest blessing of your life.
I know, I know... "That sounds great Nigel, but how in the world do you CHOOSE to look at things in a positive light when the life you had is being destroyed?"
Well, I had the unique privilege of going through 2 years of "forced change" that began on December 9th, 1986. My entire self-identity and life were destroyed. In a single moment, I lost the ability to be "me".
But that version of "me" came with a lot of baggage... Baggage that I'd refused to deal with for years, and in some case, decades.
Bullying, trauma, self-doubt, worthiness... All of the stuff that we all suppress or cover-up in our own ways... Simply put, I was never willing, motivated, or disciplined enough to face and change those parts of me because they were still a part of me.
And conducting surgery on yourself is something that none of us want to perform unless we absolutely have to because it's painful.
And then one day, an unexpected event caused chaos, a bit like the viral pandemic, and forced me to conduct that self-surgery.
Change, or die.
The next 24 months of my life would be the most difficult I've ever experienced as I was stripped of everything that I loved or cared about. "Forced change" was here whether I wanted it or not. And now "forced change" might be here for you, whether you want it or not.
This means you have a choice to make...
You can become a victim of forced change, or you can embrace it and use it as an opportunity to make the changes you've always wanted to make...
I can absolutely promise you this... This whole mess is going to pass. It's will come to an end, and you will be fine. But your life will probably look pretty different.
You might lose everything you think you care about, but in it's place you'll find a giant pile of something absolutely amazing if you're willing to see it... it's called... Opportunity.
I can give you an opportunity to change your life today, I'm proof...
I was forced to change. It cost me everything I ever had. And even though I couldn't see it at the time, it gave me back infinitely more in return.
I know how you feel. I've been there too.
And when this is over, you're going to be better than you were before. It just might look and feel differently than you expected. And in front of you will be a new set of endless possibilities.
I can help you through this "Forced Change" and present you with a new set of endless possibilities, new habits that create lasting transformation...
