You Need To Pass The Point Of No Return

There’s No Turning Back, No Reset Button

Crossing the Rubicon. Burning Bridges. Point of No Return. These are metaphors which all mean the same thing…a transformative event occurred which in turn triggered a life-changing decision to abandon the life we once knew, and move ahead into an unknown and unfamiliar realm of experience.

For most of my adult life I’ve pursued what I consider to be the organizing principles of lasting change…and have come to the understanding that there is a pivotal moment in all of our lives (actually a series of moments) that we must experience before we wake up, take control, turn pro and achieve our goals.

These pivotal moments transform the feeling of what it means to be fully alive.

In the song “The Point of No Return” from The Phantom of the Opera, the metaphor of a burning bridge is used to describe the completion of a transition between two different phases of life such as transitioning from being a boy to a man…from a girl to a women…and from amateur to professional.
 
Fire symbolizes an irrevocable change in our course of life. And as we turn back, we see a familiar way of life that is no longer possible or desirable.
 
Have you burned any bridges lately…have you drawn a psychological line in the sand and passed the point of no return?
 
Have you grown up and made the decision to turn pro, or are you hiding, pretending and living life as a child…like Michael Jackson with a Peter Pan complex?
 
Here’s the truth…we’re amateurs or professionals in every role we play…

Parent

Spouse

Friend

Entrepreneur

Manager

Teacher

Student

Doctor

Writer

Speaker

Artist

Singer

Athlete

And, we will only turn pro in any of these roles by reaching the point of no return in our own behaviors and burning the necessary bridges.

Bonus: How to Unleash a Performance Explosion!

For the remainder of this message, we’re going to focus our attention on the behavioral bridges which need to be burned…thus making it an impossibilityof returning to the life and amateur ways we once knew.
 
What soundtrack inside your mind is keeping afloat the fear and doubt and frustration that hold you captive?
 
What are the behavioral bridges in your life that are keeping you from accomplishing what you really want?
 
 Is it…
 
 Self-Limiting Beliefs
 
 Low Self-Esteem
 
Procrastination
 
 Arrogance
 
 Deceit
 
 Laziness
 
 Drinking
 
 Smoking
 
 Sugar
 
 Over-spending
 
 Lying
 
 Gossip
 
 Guilt
 
 Regret
 
 Sarcasm
 
 Perfection
 
 Poor Eating Habits
 
 Negative Self-Talk
 
 Holding on to Grudges
 
 Dependence upon Others
 
 Too Much Time on Social Media
 
 High Maintenance Relationships
 
 Quitting When Things Get Difficult
 
 Concern of Other People’s Opinions
 
 Dodging Responsibility and Making Excuses
 
Whatever prevents you from achieving your goals and dreams, from living joyfully and healthy in both body and mind is a bridge in need of burning…a place in the history of your life not worth revisiting.
 
Do not dignify nor empower weakness by giving time, attention, or repetition to anything that separates you from living a life of excellence and unleashing your greatness.
 
Unfortunately, when things get difficult, when the heat gets turned up and the “bullets start flying”, far too many people revert to conditioned behavior and make for the familiar bridge.
 
The good news…and it’s all good news is that the following awaits once you burn some bridges and get past the point of no return…

A sense of joy and fulfillment like you’ve never experienced before.

Ownership of your life and complete control of your destiny.

Increased self-confidence that makes you feel like the champion you are.

A powerful sense of focus and concentration that’s impossible not to notice.

A superior level of commitment that powers you through any obstacle or challenge.

Increased pride in the quality of your work and the art you produce.

Reputational capital that earns the respect and admiration of your peers.

and so much more…
 
If this is indeed the kind of life you want to experience…go right ahead and light a match…unleash your inner pyromaniac and let the bridges you burn light the way to a bigger, bolder, braver and far more beautiful life.

Make it the very next thing you do.

Everything Counts!
