We all have that ONE thing that we've always desired to do but never seem to get around to. Start a business, develop the bikini body, write a book, find a relationship, etc.
BUT for various reasons (or excuses) you never even get started.
The last time I checked, approximately 82% of people go to a job that they absolutely hate. That's an alarming number of people doing just that day in and day out.
This isn't about jumping off the cliff and quitting you job. Rather it's more about doing things around your job that makes life worth living.
Everything changed for me when I changed my mindset to what you're about to learn.
“Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.”
– Napoleon Bonaparte
I've been able to launch (and sell) a business, publish a book, building a community of passionate followers, and do freelance work that I enjoy.
You can do the same thing and here's how...
STOP judging yourself. You know exactly what I mean....
The big idea or goal pops in your head, you immediately start judging yourself with all of the crazy thoughts. It's like a little goblin is living in your head:
- "People will think I'm weird or crazy....."
- "What if I fail...."
- "What if I'm not good enough...."
- "I've done anything like this; no way I can make this happen....."
At some point in your life you've had this exact thoughts or questions pop in your head when you're about to take on something BIG. Right?
Here is what you have to understand. People are already doing a great job judging you, so you don't need to pile on top of that by judging yourself too.
I launched my first business using this same approach. I had all the excuses in the world that would have led me to not doing anything.I don't have a family history of entrepreneurs
- I didn't know how to write code to build my platform
- I didn't have a large pool of money to market my business
- I didn't have a family history of entrepreneurs
What I changed is the thoughts going on in my head and stopped judging myself. I started telling myself I can do it and that I can make it happen.
If you're a social drinker, you know when you get a little buzz you get more courage and confidence. That's the type of courage you'll need to take with you everyday of your life.
People always ask me... "how do you have the time to do the things you do?"
It's easy for me now... I think and act FAST! Most importantly, I don't ponder and think. Too much thinking and trying to be perfect will hold you back.
It's NEVER going to be perfect, that doesn't exist.
