Today I don’t feel inspired, particularly, or at all like writing. I’ve started a couple different pieces and all I can think?
And really – who the hell cares if I miss a day? I don’t HAVE to do anything I don’t want to do, anyway! It’s MY business / life and I’ll do what I want with it!
If you listen to me you’ll know also, that I REGULARLY advise NOT to do shit you don’t want to do with your business and life. It’s gotta be about ALIGNMENT, and FLOW baby! Stay in your genius zone!
Do you want to know something though, about what that last REALLY means?
(You might not like it. Unless you like making money, and getting results and shit. In which case you will REALLY FUCKING LIKE IT!!)
So. Let’s talk about what it actually means. To DO WHAT YOU WANT ALL DAY AND FUCK THE RULES.
Because I think a BUNCH of you guys out there are taking what I’m saying and merrily interpreting it into “she means I can sit on my ass and bask in the glory of resistance until I feel moved with the glow and passion of a thousand suns to take action”.
By which I mean: YOU’RE NOT DOING THE FUCKING WORK.
I mean, obviously when I refer to ‘a bunch of you guys’ I don’t mean YOU. No … YOU wouldn’t allow your action-takin’ to be dictated by something as ludicrous as your EMOTIONS, would you now?!
You do the WORK baby. Result-based like NOBODY’S business! You understand that FLOW doesn’t mean it’s all fluffy and rainbow-y and shit. It means SWEAT AND BLEED AND CRY AND NEARLY DIE. If need be. And then sit back and bask in being carried along with the glorious momentum you’ve created, and DUG THE FUCK OUT OF YOU.
Only thing is …
And I don’t mean to overstep the mark here ...
(Okay, I definitely do, because you REALLY need to hear this!)
When I say you do the work and you’re result based I mean in THEORY, ’cause the truth is I don’t actually see you doing it in PRACTICE.
And I hate to point fingers TOO deliberately, but let’s just be honest here:
MOST PEOPLE CALLING THEMSELVES ENTREPRENEURS WOULD HAVE TO FIRE THEIR OWN ASSES IF THEY WERE EMPLOYED IN THEIR OWN BUSINESS.
There’s a simple way to know whether or not YOU fit into this category:
1) Write a list of everything you SHOULD be doing each day, in order to meet the requirements of your own self-created job description.
2) Acknowledge that this does not mean you can actually write ‘do whatever the fuck I want all day long’ and take action only if I truly truly FEEL like it and all the stars are aligned
3) Mark off, from said list, the shit you are in fact doing every day. Day in. Day out.
4) Write yourself a fucking pink slip as you realise that you are quite possibly the worst employee in the history of employees and that if YOU worked for YOU on the PAYROLL you wouldn’t last a day!
– Not creating content all day every day
– Not doing the daily MINDSET work to build the INNER strength to be able to cope as an entrepreneur and keep up
– NOT hustling and and selling all day every day
– NOT showing up fully, with no filter and no BS, standing up for what you stand for and taking a stand against what you DON’T
– NOT actively putting yourself out there to reach more people each day
– NOT actually following up or even communicating with your so-called #soulmatetribe every day!
And I’m just GUESSING here and I’m also just getting STARTED here, and maybe I’m WRONG and you’re doing all that shit day in and DAY out, but I don’t THINK so.
Know how I know for sure?
YOU’D BE OVER HERE WITH ME IF YOU WERE.
But that’s just how it IS.
And so this thing that you’ve got into your head about taking action based on your freakin’ MOOD or that you should actually WANT TO DO THE WORK before you begin it, THAT’S NOT WHAT I MEAN.
By doing what you want.
By making money doing what you love.
By creating the business you were BORN for.
And also –
Flow, alignment, creating a business on PURPOSE, that all INHERENTLY comes with struggle. With push. With looking resistance in the eye, facing into the core of the beast and then DOING WHAT YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO DO.
And THEN, because you stepped the fuck up, and did what you know you MUST, THEN you get to experience what you maybe are thinking of when you think of ‘flow’.
But you don’t GET there without first overcoming being HERE, and by the way when I say overcome?
Pretty much every God damn day gorgeous.
That’s how RESISTANCE WORKS.
It comes back for you.
To kill your art.
And if you let it –
The truth is you DON’T have to do anything you don’t want to, not at all! You can sit back and wait until you’re MOVED and INSPIRED and READY and God himself sends you a scroll to confirm you’re on the right path.
You can reframe ‘doing what you want’ to mean taking action to LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT.
I don’t do a God damn thing I don’t want to do.
And really –
I pretty much never have!
I just learned to GENUINELY LOVE DOING THE STUFF THAT GETS ME TO FLOW. And the stuff that got me to here, and KEEPS me here. YES it’s all based on what I KNOW in my heart I was born for, but tell me this –
Does a writer who was born for it feel like writing every day? NO. Does she then feel so fucking proud of herself and empowered when she does it anyway, even if it comes out clunky and messy and feels LAME AS FUCK from time to time?
And when she looks back –
After a year –
Or ten –
Of taking action based on what she knows she MUST, in spite of ALL the so many reasons and feelings not to, does she THANK HER LUCKY STARS SHE LEARNED TO ACT BASED ON OUTCOMES NOT EMOTIONS?
From the top of her fucking empire throne baby 🙂
Nobody EVER said you would FEEL like doing what you’re MEANT to do.
Get that through your head.
You can keep yourself on the payroll without doing the work if you WANT.
Might just have a hard time getting paid, that’s all.
Stop being such a naive fool.
You say you want it all, you want it now, you want to live a life of purpose and passion and flow and make money doing what you LOVE, well tell me this –
The things that lift you up and excite you NOW, which you truly ENJOY the sweat or pain or push of, did you or did you NOT have to first LEARN to love those things?
It’s time to fall in love with stepping off the cliff baby. And even with the push and the PAIN.
They don’t call it growing pains for nothing!
And trust me when I say –
THE SHIT YOU’RE MOST SCARED OF AND THAT YOU RESIST MOST IS THE STUFF THAT WILL ALSO FREE YOU.
Gotta get to fucking work doing it.
Don’t forget –
Life is Now. Press Play.
