USE THE PRINCIPLE OF ACTIVATION ENERGY TO REMAIN COMMITTED TO SEEING RESULTS
Chemistry meets personal development…
In The world of chemistry, there’s a concept known as Activation Energy
Although you may not be a chemist or have an interest in chemistry, this idea can help you grasp how very small changes can create a HUGE difference in results
What’s Activation Energy?
In a nutshell: Activation energy is the minimum energy required to start a chemical reaction
Boiling water is a great example of this principle in action
Water needs to be heated to 212 degrees F (minimum energy to start the chemical reaction) to boil (a chemical reaction)
What happens when you put a pot of water overheats?
You have to wait and wait, and wait for it to begin to boil
What happens when the water is 209 degrees F? Nothing, really – it’s just hot water
The same thing when the water hits 210, then 211 degrees F – at this point, it’s still just hot water
But eventually, when the water reaches 212 degrees F the state of the water changes – it begins to boil
The difference between 211 and 212 degrees may seem very small in some ways, but when it comes to the effect it can have on the water the difference isHUGE!
Life functions the same way
You may be working hard to create changes and improve your life (turning up the heat )
You may be spending a lot of time/energy (the waters hot) but seeing few results (the water’s not boiling)
You may be getting frustrated/exhausted with the wait
You may be wondering if the high level of energy you’re putting into changing/improving your life is something you’re going to have to sustain forever
But realize that you may just be 1 degree (one small tweak, push, or action) from activating awesome – if you stay committed to your goal
Once you pass the tipping point of awesome’, all you have to do is sustain, which is much easier
How to use this:
Adopt a mindset that if you’re working hard toward a goal, and it’s just not happening yet – that you’ll stay focused and committed to seeing it achieved
Realize that change/breakthroughs don’t always happen simply as a result of massive effort, but sometimes a little time and patience are required for your awesomeness to reach its boiling point’ and activate
