Sometimes, simply looking at things with new eyes is enough to see how fortunate we are to have so many resources at our fingertips. As you think about yourself and your life from a different, fresh perspective, you will be able to forget your old excuses and come up with new paths to explore in life.
Be an “alien.”
For the next 24 hours, imagine that you’re an alien who has suddenly inhabited your own body—everything is new to you. Think about this person you have inhabited: What are they good at, what do they enjoy doing, what resources are available to them?
As an alien, what are you going to do with this incredible new life you have been given?
Ask yourself, “How am I going to use this body and this existence to create something awesome right now?”
