Coffeechug Notes: Finding Your Zone by Dr. Lardon, Part 3: Transform Desire Into Will

**You can read parts 1 and 2 by checking the sidebar**

Here are my notes on part 3 of the book by Dr. Lardon which I highly recommend you buy for yourself by clicking the link above.

"The first step to becoming is to will it." - Mother Theresa

Just put the hammer down!

One of the most common impediments is that we romanticize teh goals we seek, only seeing the end and not the whole process.

What is it we truly covet?
What is the nature of what we seek?

Do we conveniently forget about the relentless training, perseverance, work, and occasional humiliation that can be part of the process of achieving greatness?

Desire is transformed into will through a process that first starts with practicing the excercise of engaging in tasks that are mentally difficult.

Choose your goal. Study your goal

  • What does it take to get there?
  • What investments do you have to make?
  • What is the nature of what you covet?
