I want to thank you for going through this material until the end. Although you have reached the end, this is only the beginning, because you—and everything about you—will never end. With every day that goes by, you unfold. You grow and change, whether you feel it or not. The whole point of this program was to affect those changes slowly but surely, deliberately and with a plan in mind.
With every iteration you lift another rock and find something new. Maybe it’s a bad thing you must get rid of, or perhaps it’s a beautiful thing you will come to need in your life. Later, you might mold a new brick yourself and set it at the foundation of a new structure. Whatever it is, it’s a never-ending growth process that can only lead to a more fulfilled life overall.
How to approach it
I know that some parts of this program, if not all, seem daunting to you, and you might not be sure how to approach it. Perhaps you’ve read this entire text, but you didn’t really do the work. That’s okay, too. I’ve kept the material purposely concise and the chapters clear and focused. I never meant it to be a lecture for you to learn by heart. The knowledge itself is good, but you need to do the work.
The real progress will arise when you sit down with yourself and begin to dig into your character; when you start to understand who you are and, more importantly, who you want to be.
Yes, the workbook might seem long, but so is your life. You are where you are today because every day in the past has added or taken something from you. Your past life has been built brick by brick, and has led to your present. The workbook is merely splitting your life into its natural chapters and asks you to simply look at it, understand it, and begin laying down new bricks.
I don’t expect you to complete the workbook in a day, week, or even a month. Go at your own pace. The quality of your work and the intensity of your focus do matter. You can neither undo nor redo your life with a snap of your fingers. It takes time and effort. Don’t forget that your willingness to change and your ability to see your flaws and potential are only the beginning. They’re nothing but a catalyst that kindles your willpower.
From that point on, hurdles will appear in your way. Old habits. Old friends. Bad patterns. They’ll come in when you least expect them, and derail you. That is the time when you must fight back and keep going.
Take it one step at a time. Sometimes it will seem like you’re flying through it, other times it will feel like running through wet sand, and very often it will feel like hitting a wall. Disregard all of it, and keep going. Don’t give up. Focus exclusively on what is at the end of the road: a new and better path which you will tread as a new and better person.
As I said above, the beauty of self-growth and personal development is that after each session—no matter how long—you come out renewed, even if only 0.001%. You have a new self-awareness and a deeper understanding of who you are and what you can do. With that superior power, you can now tackle new mountains.
Don’t stop there, though. This is an endless spiral. Maybe the first time around you’ll have a lot of work to do. You might even not get it right, and mess things up. That’s okay. Much like when you got up to walk for the first time and you fell on your face, so you will experience obstacles with this process. The pain is meant to be there and will keep you alive and going along.
You’ll have to go back to this process a few times in your life. In time, you will identify some things that start to seem immutable. Your values or your strengths, for example. But they only seem immutable if you regard them as a list or a definition. But they become infinite when you view them as a way of life.
Knowing your values might become as simple as listing and acknowledging them. Living your values is a journey that never ends.
Find the time to go through this program once a year, at least in the beginning. As you get better at it, you’ll go faster. Soon, you’ll know exactly what to look for and what you need to work on. It will become a habit and a way of life.
Never let yourself become stale, because stagnation in life is the same as not living.
