Just DO it Already!
If you have been struggling with getting something done, it’s time to just DO it already!
Oh, the years people spend talking the talk, rolling out the shoulds, woulds, and coulds, attending classes, trolling the seminar circuit, and burying themselves in all sorts of self-helpery before they finally, if ever, DO anything with it all.
There’s a statistic that says only 5 percent of people who sign up for something, like a course or a seminar, actually do anything with it.
And this includes very, very, very high-priced somethings, not just the money-management class at the community college down the road.
And it also includes people starting their own home businesses.
Why Do People Struggle To Actually Do Something?
This is because lots of people wish for change, really, really want it, are willing to invest the time and money into it, but are ultimately not willing to get uncomfortable enough to actually make anything happen. Which means they don’t want it as badly as they say they do.
People who are successful are not only willing to get uncomfortable, but they know they have to make a habit of it if they want to stay successful. They keep moving through each new challenge instead of stagnating and settling.
Keep moving, keep growing, keep pushing through obstacles, and keep evolving.
You breakthrough at one level, arrive at the next and take another step up.
Each time you grow, you get to learn something new, which basically means you have to get uncomfortable again.
Because when you arrive at a level you’ve never been at before, you’re faced with challenges you’ve never experienced before.
It’s the willingness to keep pushing through new challenges, not shrink from them back into your comfort zone, that separates the successful from the unsuccessful.
So how serious are you?
You can change your entire reality if you want to badly enough, or massively increase your income, drop those extra pounds, or begin waking up excited to be who you are instead of merely putting up with your day until it’s cocktail hour.
Whatever level of upgrade you want, it’s available to you, right now.
You just have to decide to make it happen, to be engaged with your life and let the Universe work for you.
So here are some ways to make that happen:
Get rid of your bad habits –
Successful people have good habits. Unsuccessful people have bad habits.
Because our habits are all the things we do automatically, without thinking, they help to define who we are.
If you’re in the habit of getting up and working out every morning, you’re in shape; if you’re in the habit of never doing what you say you’re going to do, you’re unreliable; and if you’re in the habit of getting massages three times a week, you’re really psyched.
Pay attention to the areas of your life that you’re not so thrilled about, figure out which bad habits helped create them, and trade those habits in for some good ones.
Form the kind of habits that successful people have: good time-management habits, good decision-making habits, good thought habits, good health habits, good relationship habits, good work habits, etc.
How do you form a habit? Decide to. Make it a part of your regular, everyday activities.
Make it as non-negotiable and thoughtless as brushing your teeth or getting out of bed. Schedule it in.
Work on uncovering your subconscious beliefs and rewriting your stories. And if it’s something you’ve tried and tried to change on your own, get some help.
Whatever you have to do, start developing successful habits if you want to become a successful person.
Check in with Source Energy –
When you’re stuck in traffic, getting yelled at by your boss, feeling awkward at a party, strolling through the office, lying on the beach, trying to remember how to get to your sister’s house, take a moment to breathe deeply, clear your mind, check-in with your body, become present in the moment and connect with Source Energy.
The more of a habit you make this throughout your day, the more you will see profound, positive changes in your life both emotionally and physically, and the more gracefully you will be able to deal with the next problem that comes your way.
Hang with who you want to be –
Hang out with people who are successful and who will make you feel like a giant loser if you’re not successful too.
Who you surround yourself with greatly affects how you see your world and how high you set the bar for yourself.
If you hang out with people who constantly whine about how tired, broke, and worried about the economy they are, you’ll feel like a hero just for getting out of bed each morning.
Hang out with people who are living on purpose, who meet their challenges with a positive attitude, who are making the kind of money you want to be making (or working toward it) or taking the kinds of vacations they, and you, want to be taking, and you’ll not only see what’s possible for you, too, but you’ll have more incentive to follow suit.
Set honest goals –
Don’t decide you’re going to run ten miles a day when you still consider walking to the pizza parlor around the corner a day’s worth of exercise.
Start with running half a mile a day and add more as you get stronger.
Discipline is a muscle; you have to build it at your own pace.
If you bit off more than you can chew at the start, chances are excellent you’ll get discouraged and give up altogether.
Set honest goals that are just outside your comfort zone and build from there.
Read your manifesto –
Write down your goals and your vision of your ideal life in the present tense and be as specific as possible.
Where do you live, who do you live with, what do you do for fun, who are you surrounded by, how much money do you make, how do you make it, how do you give back to the world, what are you wearing, etc.
Make it so awesome that you can’t read it without weeping.
Read it to yourself before you go to bed and when you wake up every single day.
Become obsessed with it.
Think about how you’re changing your life and who you’re becoming and be in a state of giddy expectation about it as often as possible.
The more you focus on who you’re becoming, the more emotional you can get about it, and the faster you will become it.
Get some help –
Getting some coaching or mentoring is perhaps the fastest and best thing you can do to make a massive change in the shortest amount of time.
Think about it – professional athletes work with coaches their entire careers.
They don’t decide all of a sudden that they don’t need help any longer and they can handle this on their own.
They continue to get coaching so that can stay at their peak level and keep growing.
What makes you think you can do it all by yourself (especially if you’ve spent the majority of your life basically proving you can’t)?
Get your body in on it –
Your mind will follow where your body leads.
If you’re in a bad mood and remember to stand up nice and tall and straight, your mood will automatically lift.
And when you’re in shape and have tons of energy, you feel like you can take over the world.
If you’re serious about getting your act together, start with your body.
Get the blood flowing, eat food that excites you and nourishes you, and get your breathing deeper. Use your mind, body, and soul together to make this thing happen for yourself.
Use your secret weapons –
Make a playlist of songs that gets you pumped up, listen to motivational tapes, surround yourself with pictures of people who think you’re awesome, wear clothes that make you feel sexy and smart, dance, scream, pound your chest, go for a run while listening to the theme from Rocky – figure out what makes you feel totally powerful and do it as often as possible.
You are going for the gold here, you have to stay in the zone!
