Reasons are Your Sledgehammer

In my last post I told you the difference between those who do, and those who don’t. 

Now let me make it clear what motivation really is. 

Motivation is a reason or reasons that are more important than a moment. In other words, are you going to make a million dollars because you want your kids to have a certain kind of life? Are you going to write that book because it is your gift to the world? Are you going to get that part in a movie just so you can tell everyone you know, “HA! I told you!”

Take 5 minutes today for your dreams.

Write down what you want and list as many compelling reasons as you can about why you must have this (whatever “this” is) in your life. Tape your reason to your walls in every room and commit them to memory. Every time you don’t “feel” like taking action, go back to your motivation and take that next step.

Remember, who ever you look up to in life, living or dead, did the exact same thing. Perhaps they didn’t tape it to their wall, but I can assure you those reasons were on their mind every single day.

Life is a Dance Between Push and Pull

Posted by Gregg Korrol on Sep 5, 2018 7:17:32 PM

We all have hopes, dreams and desires. The difference is some people actually bring their dreams to fruition, while the majority talks about them in late night conversation.

So what’s the difference between these two groups of people and how do the “doers” get it done?

Life pushes us around, and you have to learn to push back. It’s not other people, so much as energy that challenges you to make a decision. In other words, when you are tired, or feel worn, not in the mood, etc, we tend to use the phrase “I’ll do it tomorrow.”  You are pushed by various forces and then cave in to the easy path.

iStock-1029428324What separates the others is that they don’t cave in. It’s not that they aren’t tired and worn, it’s that they tell their mind, thanks for the feedback, and tell their body to take action.

You are gifted with a chance to do this everyday. This is what the law of attraction is about, this is what mindset is about, etc. It’s about doing it, whatever it is, regardless of how you feel.

So the next time you have that moment, “I want ice cream, but I said I was going to start my diet”, “I want to go to the gym, but I am tired right now” or “I am going to start writing that book I keep talking about, but I’m not inspired at the moment,” etc. This is when you MUST take a step, even if it’s a small one. All motivation is, is simply telling your mind to back the F*** off, just long enough for you to begin.

Stay tuned for the next post which will give you leverage to push back….

Success Is At The Tips of Your Fingers

You know how sometimes you drop something and it falls into a tiny space like in the crack of a sofa? So you have to reach your hand down into the crack of space to try and feel for it. And you can feel the thing you want by extending and stretching one finger. And then you have to stretch further so you can get a second finger to touch it. And you’re struggling to reach even deeper and stretch your hand just a little further just to grab it by two fingers, but aren’t quite there yet. And you are thinking to yourself, “don’t let go, don’t let go.” Then it slips and falls a little further because you accidentally let go and pushed it.  But then you reach out again and you stretch even further and push and you push and you grab it by the tips of your fingers again and slowly pull it out.

That’s what opportunity is like in life. You have to stretch, stretch, stretch, and you may lose it for a moment, but you have to keep pushing, until you are able to grab it and make that opportunity a reality.
