Are you willing to changes your actions to get all that you desire?
Obviously if you do what you have always done you will get what you have always gotten so without change you will accomplish no more than you did before.
Anthony Robins has a great method for solving problems, but it is also useful in evaluating the changes you are willing to make in order to get what you want.
1) What is not perfect yet?
2) What could be perfect?
3) What am I willing to do to make things the way I want them?
4) What am I willing to no longer do to make things the way I want them?
5) What can I do to accomplish this and enjoy the process?
These are fantastic questions because if you didn’t notice they are all presupposing perfection, you are anticipating success instead of worrying about failure. I use these questions in pretty much all areas of my life when I have anything that is troubling me. The most difficult part is allowing yourself the time to ask the questions.
Presently I am restarting the process of getting into the best shape physically and mentally I have ever been in. When I made this decision I was truly just sick and tired of being sick and tired! But here is what is different about the idea I had and the idea many people have. I sat down answered these questions, put the schedule down in my calendar for the week, and got to work immediately. When you have an idea or desire do all that you can as soon as you can to begin the creation of that habit. Since it takes 21 days to form the habit why not get started ASAP?
Find others who desire what you desire and team up. I am extremely fortunate to have a motivated workout partner for both business and physical fitness. We set up goals and a plan, and now we have the ability to keep each other accountable.
We all have a vision or passionate desire from time to time that motivates us, but it is like Jim Rohn has stated “The key is doing what needs to be done, after the excited feeling you had when you decided to do it has left you.” Having a burning desire or laser focus is a necessity when it comes to accomplishing something you never have before. Your workout partner, who should be someone will keep you accountable and not accept excuses, is like a back up motivator and can be invaluable to your success.
To Do’s: Determine what you love and must do to accomplish what you desire, get to work, and search for a workout partner along the way. Good Luck and don’t miss part 4 the conclusion!
