There are many reasons why we don’t achieve our goals. Why we never reach that dream job. Why we never lose that weight.
We have this “victim” mentality. It’s never our fault. It’s the cards we were dealt. We like to point the finger out rather than point it in.
If we can’t begin taking responsibility for where we are at in our lives then we’ll never get where we ultimately want to go.
My friends, in this episode we dive deep into the top three reasons we don’t take the action. Fear, Homeostasis, and Execution.
For some reason, we like to put obstacles in our way rather than move them out of the way. We like to stay comfortable. We like to take the easy route. Even though we know that if we challenge ourself and push ourself we will achieve our goals, for some reason there’s still something stopping us from taking action. From a scientific perspective but also from an emotional perspective.
Once we begin to understand that when we intentionally push ourselves further than we did yesterday, once we understand that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself, once we understand that taking the first step is the first step...that is when the magic happens. That is when your life begins to change. That is when you start to become the person you ultimately know you can become.
Let’s stop waiting for someone else to inspire us. Let’s inspire ourselves. Nobody will pull you out of bed, you have to do it yourself. Nobody will care for you as much as you will care for yourself. But you have to be willing to face your fears, you have to be willing to step outside your comfort zone, and lastly you must overcome paralysis by analysis and throw your excuses out the window.
And just simply TAKE ACTION.
Who cares what other people say. What you do say?
If you don’t do it, who will? If you don’t do it right now, when will you? Make today the day.
