The most powerful tool you can develop in business is the inner strength tool of believing in yourself, and acting accordingly.
If you believe in yourself – REALLY – then nothing will stop you or even slow you down, and you’ll pretty much relentlessly forge forward like a terminator, while everybody else around you falls by the wayside, until you reach your dreams. You might have to pick yourself up 1000 times over along the way, but you’ll keep GOING because you believe that you’re going to get there!
I would say that just about every time waster or distraction you allow to truly grab hold of you is really just a reflection of shaky self-belief, and everytime you let resistance grip and slow you it’s the same thing.
Long story short: self-belief will make you, and a lack of it will break you.
The crazy thing is, people who aren’t actively and daily creating their dreams and getting closer to achieving their EVERY goal are rarely focused obsessively on building the inner strength they need to get there. Instead they’re running around desperately trying to learn a better SYSTEM, to make money or to get people to follow them or to pull some kind of magic quick fix out of their ass.
It’s the worst sort of delusion, if you think about it. To imagine that the reason you don’t yet have it ALL is because you just don’t know the secret steps which apparently the successful people must be hiding from you!
The truth is that when you get to know truly successful people you’ll find that the true secret is simply that they just kept going. They forged FORWARD. They picked themselves up no matter how many times necessary. They did the WORK, but the point is that it doesn’t matter what the work WAS, or IS, it matters how it was that they as a person had the fortitude to DO it and to find their own true path.
So if you really want to learn from successful people, stop being so obsessed with what they DO and start getting really fucking obsessed with who they ARE and how that allows them to DO whatever the fuck it is they do.
Understand also that BEING a success-minded person who does the work, no matter what, until it works, and then keeps going, doesn’t mean living WITHOUT fear or resistance or doubt.
It just means that you stopped letting all of THAT bullshit be bigger than your dreams.
That you learned to ROUTINELY take action in the spite of fear.
That you learned to CONSISTENTLY apply yourself as though you knew exactly what the fuck you’re doing.
That you learned to ACT AS FUCKING IF, basically!
And that you created results accordingly.
And here’s the thing, if you really want to know a SECRET:
Successful people are STILL just making it up as they go! We don’t really know WHAT the fuck we’re doing most of the time! But yet we continue to show up –
Press forward –
Make a fucking decision –
And act on it –
After day –
We understand that it’s not about having the answers or a clear plan, that there IS no such thing as finding the answers or a clear plan without action and momentum. YES we are constantly searching –
But meanwhile we just keep hustling.
And the truth is that even a year, five years, ten years, into acting like this, we’re still living with a similar amount of uncertainty to when we first set out!
Still assuming that one day we’ll wake up and know EXACTLY what’s what and what the future holds, as well as requires. Understanding at the same time, eventually, that none of us will EVER wake up, know exactly what’s what, and what the future holds!
The difference between those who LIVE like this and who therefore do in fact create RESULTS, and those who, well, do NOT, is simply that those of us making it stopped sitting around waiting to know how to make it, or feel ready.
I guess one of the secrets to being successful is, in that regard, to simply be fucking impatient!
And here is what else:
NOBODY FUCKING KNOWS, or needs to know, how UNSURE of yourself you feel most of the time, how much you question yourself, how you’re secretly convinced that you have no fucking clue what you’re doing!
Unless you show them.
Ultimately people will ALWAYS believe you are who you show yourself to be.
So here is what you do, if you’re serious about BEING that next level version of yourself who actually gets the job done and gets RESULTS:
You START FUCKING ACTING LIKE IT.
You put ASIDE your bullshit, your fear, your what if.
You focus on what you KNOW that you know that you know. About who you are. About what you want. About what you can help people with. About the leader you were born to be!
And then you act.
The secret that successful people already know and live by, and which you have access to NOW, about how to believe in yourself and achieve all of your dreams, is simple:
Do the work as though it were already true.
Don’t forget –
Life is Now. Press Play.
