If you decide that you want to thrive instead of just survive, than you must take some voluntary actions in addition to these automatic actions. You must think about some new actions that you can take to get you closer towards your goal. This is another instance of where asking questions will help you out.
What is there that you can do towards achieving your goal? Is there anything you can think of that has some probability of getting you closer to your goal? Try taking the smallest possible step towards your goal. Just get some momentum.
Who else has achieved something similar to your goal? It is most likely that someone else has tried to do something similar to what you are trying to achieve. What did they do? There is no reason for you to come up with all of the ideas, copy what other people have done.
Who could you ask for help? Even people that have no knowledge about how to achieve your goal can be helpful. It doesn't hurt to ask, especially if you can't think of something on your own. What do you have to lose?
The key is to find some way to take action, on a regular basis. Think again about if you want to improve your physical condition. How often might you have to exercise to improve your body? Once a year? Once a month? How about 3-5 times per week, and keep doing that for at least 6 months or longer. That seems like a formula for success. Do the same with your mind.
Take action 3-5 times per week and keep up this habit for at least 6 months and you should be amazed at what you can accomplish.
