Shut the F*ck Up and Win Already
Want to know why you haven’t reached that dream yet? It doesn’t matter if it’s the body, the business, the life or the lifestyle, what I’m about to tell you is so damn important and true. You must read it now, and you must pay attention. And then you must do what I say! Not because I want to brainwash you (mhu-haha … or however you write that) but because I KNOW you can live your dreams if only you do this!
So here’s the secret –
Whatever you state as true and real becomes so. Did you know that?
When I was 27, perhaps, or 28, I started telling people who asked that I was a writer. At the time I was working as a personal trainer. As far as writing? I journaled, I wrote a newsletter for my clients, and I’d started a blog of sorts under my own name. But when I told people I was a writer, the reacted with wide eyes and a big smile –
“Wow! What do you write about?”
I embellished. I told them I write about fitness and nutrition, and motivation. (All true). I told them I write for various magazines. (Also true, although my appearances were small and few and far between). I told them I’m finishing off my book. (Also true, although at the time it had been gathering dust for months, perhaps years).
I implied that I made a living as a writer. That I was recognised as such. That it was not only what I did but who I am.
Within a year of starting to say that, I was making money as a writer.
Within 2 years, I was making a full-time living as a writer.
A good year before I quit seeing clients face to face, I started telling the world at large that my income is all online. That I work from cafes or the beach wherever. Right now I’m writing this from a cafe on the beach, where we live. I’m living the laptop lifestyle! About to take off for several years of endless travel because yes – my business is all online.
6 months ago, I started telling people (quietly, whispering at first) that I’m a success coach. That I help driven women to quit the BS, get over their sh*t, and finally start living the life they deserve. At the time, my income was derived primarily from business coaching as well as passive income from my fat loss/nutrition business Woman Incredible; where I first started making money online.
As I write this, I’ve just opened the doors for my Dream Life Academy Bootcamp. 6 weeks to quit the BS, get over your sh*t, and finally start living the life you damn well know you deserve. I’ve already been talking about this program in my bio for guest posts and interviews, acting as if it already existed and was a raging success.
In my mind, even though as I write this I literally just opened it and (as far as I’m aware) don’t yet have my first member, I’ve already won.
In my mind, whenever I hear ‘I can’t’, or ‘not yet’, or ‘what if’, I’ve learned to tell myself –
Shut the Fuck Up and Win Already.
Of course sometimes I still allow fear and self-doubt and ‘being realistic’ to get the better of me. But if it’s a big dream, something that truly matters to me? Sooner or later I decide that I’m just going to win right now.
Did you know you don’t have to wait until you achieve your goals in the real world? In fact, your chances of achieving success on your terms and being able to live your dreams go up massively when you claim that win as yours right now.
What are you dreaming of for this year?
What do you want to be able to say you did by the end of it?
Who do you want to be able to say you are?
What do you want to have conquered, created, overcome?
I can’t tell you the exact process you’ll need to use to get there, but I can tell you this –
Dream Life Creation and success on your terms begins and ends in your mind.
So stop telling yourself you can’t, you don’t know how yet, that you’ll definitely do it next week, tomorrow, tonight! Stop listening to fear and self-doubt and believing it’s not for you.
Just stop. Stop with I can’t.
Instead try ‘I can’, but better still try ‘I am’.
Start announcing yourself as the you who you want to be, the you who you are already becoming.
Start telling the world it’s already real.
Start telling YOU it’s already happening.
Start creating your dreams, right this very moment, in your mind. And then speak them out loud.
Start realising that if you can just shut the f*ck up with I can’t, you absolutely can win.
Start realising that if you can believe that, and then start taking action on it now? You’ve already won.
Don’t forget –
Life is Now. Press Play.
