What do I do to get done the things that I do not what to do?
Whew, that’s a tongue twister! It’s also an awesome question and I have to admit, one with an answer I’m still figuring out!
There are more times than I care to know that I have kicked my backside for not getting more done. I am a challenge orientated person, I love a good challenge, or at least one I know I can win! So whenever I find myself making excuses about why I’m not doing something it is especially upsetting because I know that’s not me. That’s me being tardy!
What about the times when I do get those tough things done? Where do I find the inspiration, motivation, determination to finally accomplish something?
Well, sorry to say, it’s not some fancy procedure or special formula I follow, checking off each exercise like a list (“Ok, now I’m ready, I went through all the motions!”). I know, that is exactly what you did not want me to say! You were hoping for a brand new technique to jumpstart your brain, right?
Well, folks, those things are great while they last, but that’s the problem, they have an ending, they fall out of style, they only get you going for a time.
So what’s the solution?
We are procrastinators by nature, so I’ve found turning off my emotion helps. Just kidding. No, what you need to get you going is some good old-fashioned self-discipline! You need to get up, go out and do!!! (By the way I’ve heard it’s still the cure for laziness.)
And that is exactly what I do when I start making excuses like ‘I don’t want to, I don’t know how, I don’t know what the next step is…’blah, blah, blah. You get the point.
Fortunately, I am not a lazy person, so for me most of the time those excuses are true! What do I do then? I get up, go out, (or go to) and do it! I say ‘No!’ to those voices.
If I don’t know something then I go found it out. I mean, its not like it’s that hard or anything. These days with Google and Youtube, we have everything we need at our fingertips. So excuses about not knowing how to do something don’t work, sorry!
One other thing while we’re on a roll, and this is a serious note!
Something else that can often be a culprit behind those excuses is fear, yes, you heard me right, FEAR. Fear of not being good enough, not doing it right or failing, etc. And that is why there is failure today. Fear. Fear is the driving or should we say stopping force behind all failure. I know you probably have legitimate reasons for why it’s not working out.
But let me ask you a question. How badly do you want to succeed, to not be a failure? I know for a fact that the people who have become known as successors today, put aside their fear of failure and pushed on even when the rest of the world was laughing at them.
If you don’t want it badly, then make all the excuses you want! I don’t mind a bit. But don’t come whining and complaining when someone else is succeeding and you are not. This is only for the folks who are serious about what they want out of life!
Sadly, nothing is free in this world, not even your time. Of course it’s yours to decide what to do with, but in the end, trust me, you’ll wish you had used it better! So why not get started today? That big, giant problem you need to solve, go figure it out. And once you’ve started most likely it won’t seem like such a big problem anymore!
