“It is not impossibilities that fill us with deepest despair, but possibilities that we have failed to realize.” – Robert Mallet, Poet
Only a tiny percentage of the world unleashes the full potential in their life. Statistics say it’s 2% or 3%, which is a very small minority.
What do the other 97% do? What do they have in common?
One of their biggest commonalities is that they choose ‘pleasing methods’ over ‘pleasing results’.
How do I mean that. Well I mean success isn’t natural, sitting on your butt and failing consequently is.
97% of the world want to do just the easy things and they want to use only the easy methods. That is why everybody is looking for the quick fix and prefers an unhealthy pill over a more healthy lifestyle.
But isn’t it much more interesting to find our what the other 3% have in common?
The biggest differences between the 97% and the 3% is the 3% make a habit of doing the things they don’t like to do first.
You have heard right. Better read it again.
The biggest differences between the 97% and the 3% is that the 3% make a habit of doing the things they don’t like to do first.
Naturally nobody enjoys doing the things they don’t want to do, so why do the 3% take action?
The answer is because they don’t focus on the process, they focus on the result; on the benefits they get out of taking that action. And this shift in focus turns the ordinary into extraordinary, mediocrity into abundance. When you focus on the process, procrastination becomes your best friend.
1. What is ONE thing I don’t want to do today, but if I did it, it would move my life or my business forward?
2. How will I benefit from doing it?
3. Write it down
4. and DO IT.
Taking action and doing one thing a day you don’t want to do is worth fighting for.
Remember, people form habits and habits form futures. Cultivate habits that lead to wisdom, happiness, and riches. If you need a push once in a while let me coach you in creating your new habits because habits predict the outcome of our lives.
