I’m happy to admit that I’m an avid Tim Ferriss fan. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve read ‘The 4-Hour Work Week’ and I pre-ordered his latest book ‘The 4-Hour Body’ as soon as it was announced. I know he has his critics, but when you’re such an out-spoken person there are bound to be others just waiting to pass comment.
I received the new book two days ago, and I’m already up to page 60. So far it hasn’t disappointed me, and I continue to be inspired. The book is primarily, as the title suggests, about changing your body and improving your self-image, but through the words there are lessons to be learnt about any meaningful adventure.
One of the first subjects in the book talks about the critical moment in his life when he accepted that his body was in very poor shape and he needed to do something about it. It happened at a relatively innocuous point but it pulled the trigger that enabled huge changes.
You could call this your ‘ah-ha’ moment, or light bulb moment, or whatever, but in his recent book Malcolm Gladwell refers to it as the ‘Tipping Point’. The Tipping Point is defined as “the moment of critical mass, the threshold, the boiling point”.
Many of us reach these tipping points in our lives, and they can drive us on to achieve great things. My personal tipping point happened quite recently. All year we had anticipated my daughter’s wedding, and the great day came and went, and it was everything we could have wished for.
However, during the weeks that followed I began to look forward, and realised that I had to really do something major for myself. I had a little bit of available cash (but not money I could throw away) and it just so happened that a respected internet marketer, and someone I have known for a long time, made an offer that really seemed to open many doors.
This was my tipping point. I signed up for the course and have been committed to it ever since.
So what was your tipping point? Did you accept the challenge and dive straight in, or did you walk away (again). It’s never too late to follow your heart’s desire, whatever that may be.
I am very fortunate. I don’t have regrets about anything I’ve done. But I know that if I hadn’t made that commitment to set up my internet business then it would have been something that I would have regretted for the rest of my life.
I have every confidence that it will be successful, but even if it isn’t, then at least I can say that I tried!
