[Clarity] Counter-Intuitive Life Changer #1: Screw Ready!
- Wait to FEEL Ready
- Trust is EARNED
- Giving is BETTER than Receiving and
- Hard Work is the KEY to Success
Ready Isn’t Feeling-It’s a Decision.
I’m going to repeat that because it’s the most important thing someone has told you in a very long time. Ready is a decision.
There are many people who do not want to hire a coach because they believe “I already know what I need to do.“
And yes, that’s often true. You know.
What is also often true, is that you cannot make yourself do what you already KNOW you must do.
The excuse is: “I’m just waiting to be ready…“
Scroll up. Ready isn’t a feeling, it’s a DECISION. An action, not a mood.
Why are you not further along, brilliant Alpha? Because a deep part of you is waiting for someone/thing outside of you to GIVE you the feeling/impression/momentum or motivation to do what you already know you need to do.
That you must choose readiness before you “feel ready” is the critical counter-intuitive understanding to have anything new begin in your life. New means change. Change feels uncomfortable. Discomfort keepsyou NOT ready.
Nike Had It Right – Just DO It
I wish I had a magic formula, but sometimes it is really just gut-check time.You simply have to make your self begin what must be done.
There is an advantage to being able to “manually override“ your disinclination to do something. Your ego learns that IT CANNOT STOP YOU FROM STARTING.
Check out this post I wrote years ago about things that SHOULD be comfortable Comfort is My New Curse Word and things that shouldn’t be comfortable.
I concluded that only jeans and sports bras SHOULD be comfortable and new things are never comfortable – especially big firsts like driving a car, having sex or using a tampon. 🙂
Your key take away from this training? Stop expecting readiness to just “happen” and feel comfortable. This is why necessity is the mother of invention. Because people needed something done and couldn’t keep waiting to “feel ready.” They DECIDED to make themselves ready.
When you hear me say Get Ready – it means =
Decide to be ready and then act.
Note for Advanced Readers: Deciding to be ready means aligning your heart before your mind. The proper order is heart first, mind (foot soldier) second, and then thoughts, words and actions FLOW. Make sense?
So… Alpha… Get Ready! The things you MOST need to know in life ARE counter-intuitive. That’s why you haven’t been doing them!
I’m going to teach you three more… CHOOSE TO BE READY!
P.S When I’m procrastinating something important, I break the log jam by deciding to just do 5 mins. I decide I am READY to start even if I have no clue how to finish or don’t feel like it.
You can do a deep dive into why you keep not feeling like it…but sometimes it’s best to skip that mess and just get going! Alphas are prone to Analysis Paralysis.
