Fear. Yep. I said it, so what? I (and YOU) don’t do certain things right away because of fear. I take a long time to do things because I am afraid of them. But I found out that when I say or do certain things I’m afraid of, they lose their power and vicariously, I am endowed with their power because I have finally done them. I hate to put things off and a lot of my stress is due to my avoiding things I really need or want to do. I am writing this not just for you, but for myself today. I am hoping it will give me even more clarity on this subject and it will give me more focus and power when it comes to stopping myself from procrastinating.
It’s funny how I sit there and think “Oh no, I don’t wanna do that, it’s gonna be so stressful.” So I sit there and let it fester, until not doing it becomes even more stressful. Because I’ll have to involve another person, I generally won’t do it, because I’m afraid they’ll cause me pain; maybe treat me badly, and it’s not what they do that worries me, it’s my reaction to it. I think sometimes I’ll be weak with that person and I won’t be able to control myself and I’ll snap right back to them so as a result I’d rather avoid it.
Darren Hardy says he heard from his mentors “If there’s something you don’t want to do, you should probably do it. “ For example: “I don’t want the water, I want to eat chocolate cake”; You should have the water. “I don’t want to make that call”, you should make the call. I believe this, and I have found amazing results in implementing this. Also, Darren Hardy is very successful, in life, in love, in his marriage, in writing, publishing, in finance, so I’ll take his word for it. Darren Hardy is someone you can trust. He’s never steered me wrong.
Whenever I do the thing I don’t want to do, (that I should), I always WIN! I win BIG! It is never half as bad as I think it is. I always end up ahead and feeling great that I did it.
So, do as Yoda says, “Just do it!” haha I know that’s Nike, but Yoda’s call to action is “There is no try, there is only do or do not.” Remember, if you want more, you have to become more. So go out there and become. You can have one of the two pains: The pain of regret or the pain of discipline. Pain of discipline weighs ounces the pain of regret weighs tons, and it never goes away. The pain of discipline is long term and produces results. It’s growing pain, remember that! So, GROW! YOU ARE WORTH IT!
