#12 Let the world guide you

Konstantin Starodetskii

Let the world guide you

Let the world guide you. In the moments when I feel that my daily life goes in a linear mechanical way and loses its juice, I escape from it for a while. As I was practicing it, I discovered a way to let my mind free and allow the world to open a conversation.

Leave your phone and other devices at home and go outside. Once you’re there, close your eyes, take a deep breath in and then blink your eyes open as you breath out. The first sign that gets your attention. Follow it. It can be anything: a traffic sign in a shape of an arrow, a cloud that challenges you to run after it. Or something in the way that pedestrians move or birds fly.

Pursue that impulse until you discover another piece of visual information advising your mind where to go. I do it for a while until I come to a place that gives me an answer or a suggestion to what should I do next in my life. It reveals the essential change I must make, and reminds me of my true values. Then I go home.

Usually, it takes a while, and your mind finds a solution almost at the same time as your body gets exhausted from wandering. Since you explore a real world, you may interact with other people and perhaps start new friendships. Our reality is a vast ocean, and you’ll always be receiving surprises from it as long as you allow yourself to be open to it.

Let the world flow into your body and soul. So the monotonous life will explode in a colorful, emotional spectrum and you’ll appreciate the gift of life.

#11 Fasting

Fasting

Fasting, or in other words not eating. This is a cool new tool I’ve been playing with for a few months now. I fast, as I’m recording this episode. The benefits are remarkable.

You’re saving time and money while losing those extra pounds accumulated over the weekend. Your senses sharpen. I can smell fried chicken from miles away. Your brain goes into a survival mode and focuses on important projects, which makes it an excellent practice to rethink your life’s purpose.

Your body cleans itself from the toxins, which have been there for years. Yes, your body needs cleaning too. The hunger will definitely intervene as you fast, but it comes in waves. Survive the waves and the rest of the day won’t be that hard. I usually experience two to three waves during the day.

After a few fasting sessions, you’ll discover that your body is perfectly capable of functioning for twenty-four to forty hours without food. Here’s the way I fast. Stop eating at 10 PM on the first day, don’t eat the entire second day, and resume eating in the morning on the third day, at whatever time works best for you.

Give it a shot. If you’re fearful that your body can’t handle it, consult with your doctor first. Otherwise, have a victorious cheat day then dive into a fasting journey.

#10 Rise to a challenge

Rise to a challenge

Rise to a challenge. Grab a cup of delightful warm tea or coffee, turn off all the devices you have, allowing your mind to deepen into the treasures of your consciousness. Take a few moments until your body relaxes and then ask this question: “What challenge thrills my heart?”

It can be anything, running an obstacle race, writing a novel, climbing the Everest, or sailing around the world. The limit is your imagination. Once you’ve found your breathtaking mission, take action immediately. Sign up for a race, take a novel writing class, or read an article on how to climb Everest.

On top of that, make a considerable financial and psychological commitment, the one that’ll leave you with no other options but to take the challenge. Raise your stakes as high as you possibly can. The next day, start sharing your passion with your social circles. From now on, you’re on an exclusive heroes journey. Your actions have to be consistent, so your skills and confidence increase exponentially.

On your quest, you’ll encounter the moments when your brain will give the most persuasive reasons to quit, and that’s exactly when you have to push harder, that’s the moment that separates most people from achieving goals. Eventually, when you take this challenge and complete it, your life will change forever.

You’ll feel like you can do anything, there’ll be no fear. And which is more you’ll have a cool story to tell later. Rise to your challenge, my fellow humans.
