The Default Setting


In the coaching relationships I have with our clients, the major problem I see is that individuals end up in the same place - over and over and over again. They mean to save money and build wealth, only to end up (again) with "too much month at the end of the money." They've lost the same 15 pounds 8 times in the last decade. They quit one job only to end up doing the exact same job with the exact same pay for a different company. They end a relationship and then start dating the same person with a different name. Sound familiar? Everyone has patterns and they are determined by what we refer to as the "default setting".

The "default setting" in anything is simply is where you end up if you don't take purposeful action. When you turn on your computer, the exact same image pops up on your screen every time, right? That's because your computer has what are actually called "default settings" that it reverts back to every single time, no exceptions. The only way to change the image that pops up on that screen is to purposely go in and change the default setting. You have a default setting for every area of your life. Your income, your health, your batting average, your relationships. Every aspect of your life no matter how macro or how micro all have a default setting. The fundamental reason why most people don't get what they want from life is that unfortunately, the default setting for most things is way below ideal. Think about it. If you don't purposely take care of your body, do you automatically get stronger and healthier? If you don't purposely expand your knowledge base and do a good job in your career, do you automatically advance? If you don't develop and execute a solid financial plan, do you automatically become wealthy? Of course not. In fact, quite the opposite is true. Wouldn't you agree? The only way to affect real, positive, permanent change is to purposely go into our own program and change the default setting.

Can this actually be done? Absolutely. The real value of proper goal setting, conscious attitude improvement and consistently feeding your mind, is that over time your default settings will elevate to a place where they work for you and automatically create the life you want. Exciting!
