Last time we talked about “know” and “be.” We cannot forget “do.” If you do not practice with integrity what you know, you will still not be successful. It takes all three.
But guess what? It sounds easier than it is. Distractions. Conflict. Fear. Excuses. Procrastination. Rationalizing. Shiny, new things. There are all kinds of things that prevent us from doing what we know we need to do. Do you know your favorites? It is important that you figure them out and overtly do something to eliminate their ability to stop you.
It takes discipline to be successful. How much discipline can you muster to stick to your plans, pursue your goal without giving up, to resist your favorite ways to avoid doing what you know you need to do? If you are not getting the results you want, the answer is, “Not enough.” It’s a decision. How much do you want those results? Enough to make the decision to be more disciplined? If not and you keep doing what you’ve been doing, you’ll keep getting what you’ve been getting. Will you be satisfied with that?
Decide today what you REALLY want: Success or what you are now getting. Once you know the answer to that question, you will know what you need to do. So go do it!
