3 Seconds : The Power Of Thinking Twice by Les Parrott III
View book: 3 Seconds : The Power Of Thinking Twice
Have you ever wondered how a decision can change your life? It only takes three seconds to make a choice – three seconds that determine whether you settle for “Whatever” or insist on “Whatever it takes.” This concept is explored in the book “3 Seconds,” which shows you how to tap into your inner resources and achieve a new level of success.
Within those three seconds, six predictable impulses often guide our actions without us even realizing it. These impulses can be replaced with new ones that lead us towards making a meaningful impact. Let’s explore a few examples:
Disown Your Helplessness
The first impulse is often to think, “There’s nothing I can do about it.” But in just three seconds, you can change that to, “I can’t do everything, but I can do something.” By accepting responsibility for what you can control, you empower yourself to take action.
Quit Stewing and Start Doing
How many times have you thought, “Someday I’m going to do that.” Instead, in those three seconds, shift your perspective to, “I’m diving in … starting today.” This change in mindset propels you to stop procrastinating and start taking decisive action.
Fuel Your Passion
Often we fall into the trap of doing what comes our way without considering what truly ignites our souls. But in three seconds, you can change your approach to, “I’ll do what I’m designed to do.” By aligning your actions with your passions, you tap into a wellspring of motivation and fulfillment.
It’s fascinating to think that such a significant change can happen in the blink of an eye – in the space of a single breath. The power to make this decision lies within you. Don’t wait for tomorrow; start today.
