Getting to Work

Making changes, improving and working towards a goal all include an unavoidable process of putting your head down and doing the work.
I heard someone the other day jokingly say that they didn’t want to lose weight, they just wanted to be thin.
I laughed too – we can all relate!
We know where we are, and we know where we want to be but far too often we get thwarted by the ‘muck in the middle’ (MSPS)
But In order to achieve our dreams, we need to get a little scrappy.
Improvement is a new effort every day.
We have all probably dreamed about winning the lottery but we have all heard about those rags to riches to rags stories that come along with instant wealth.
We look at the person who has excelled at business or at their sport or in a relationship and we want what they have for ourselves. But are you willing to do the work to get there or would you rather skip the line?
Embracing the struggle allows us an opportunity to evolve into a newer version of ourselves with new skills and more confidence. It’s hard. But it is supposed to be.
What do you want to achieve? What are you prepared to do to get there? How are you willing to fail? (‘cuz that’s is the fastest way to the win)
Want to be a better writer or communicator? Commit to posting a written piece of work every day for 30 days.
Want to be in better shape? Commit to daily movement.
Want to grow your business? Commit to doing the uncomfortable thing you know will move the needle.
See all your actions and all your fails as one step closer.
Allow it to be hard and do it anyway without the drama.
Go towards the fear and towards anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.
Let that be the sign that you are on the right track.
It is your life – make it a great one!
