You’ve heard that term right? “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”? I think it was even their official promotional line at one point. Sure, it’s a funny line. And it gives soon-to-be-marrieds the excuse to get liquored up, wild, happy and craaaaazeeee in Vegas where apparently, all bets are off (or on, depending on your preference).
The thing about life is that:
how you do anything is how you do everything.
How you do the little things is how you do the big things. If you’re dishonest in one area of your life, you’re dishonest in other areas. If you’re lazy about one thing, you’ll be lazy about another thing. If you can’t share your authentic feelings at work, you don’t share your authentic feelings at home either.
Little things matter. How you live every moment of your life matters. If there’s one area of your life where you’re embarrassed about, think about the characteristcs and traits that make that little embarrassing part possible. Where else in your life do those characteristics hold you back? What little changes did you vow to make in January of this year that haven’t happened? How can you get yourself back on track and make a simple course correction?
How did you do on the ‘Tell Me More‘ challenge? I’ve almost got it incorporated fully into my life without even thinking about it now. So, how about another challenge? For the next 30 days, pick one trait that doesn’t serve you and start making the steps to change it. Baby steps in the right direction lead to momentous change over time.
