Want it All, Want it Now? Here’s What You’re Missing
Do you ever feel as though no matter how hard you push yourself, how much you get done or check off your list, even how many milestones you actually hit, it’ll still never be enough and you’ll never be ‘there’?
I do! I can tell you that the further along my success journey I go the more aware I become of what is possible and what is within reach and so in some ways my hunger for MORE becomes greater with time, my dreams and goals become ever-bigger, and I feel almost anxious with the knowledge of all there is I still want to do … and will do!
So, that’s part of business okay? Desire never ends, and gosh isn’t THAT a good thing?! God knows nobody would ever get anywhere of much note if it weren’t for drive and desire, and the fact that it’s always there to remind you to wake up and get to work.
But there is something I want to talk about more specifically around the concept of not yet being where you want to go, and it has to do with the ‘thing you’ve always wanted to do and known you were born for’.
Don’t tell me for a SECOND you don’t know what I mean sister! I KNOW that as soon as I said this you felt that VERY familiar sucker-punch to the gut feeling.
The feeling that reminds you, once more, that oh shit.
You STILL haven’t mother-fucking got around to giving THAT shit your all.
And oh shit.
You’re still spinning the same crap as to why you haven’t yet, can’t yet.
And OH SHIT.
Even as you think about your own BS lies you know that they’re BS, you know they’re lies, and when all is said and done you know it’s not TRUE that you ‘can’t’, but that rather for some reason unknown to man or at least you, you just CHOOSE NOT TO.
And OH FUCKING SHIT.
When you say they reason is unknown to you, that’s not exactly true.
Because the truth?
Well the truth will fucking hurt today my love, as it so often does! But also –
It just might set you free.
And the truth is this:
You know –
And you’ve always known –
That you are here for something bigger than what most could even consider let alone comprehend.
You know –
And you’ve always known –
Deep within you –
What the thing is.
The thing you were born to do –
Are supposed to do –
And that until you do, and do all out?
You’ll never be at peace, never be there, never be done, always be searching, always feel frustrated, and that even when you do achieve your goals or successes it will feel like so much empty fluff.
Nice marshmallowy fluff perhaps.
A little pretty, a little sweet.
Tasty for a moment!
And then poof – gone.
It doesn’t matter.
And the only thing that will fill that need, that whole, that DEEP DEEP PULL within you?
Is when you finally step the fuck up and give your TRUE dream your all.
Can I ask you something gorgeous?
WHAT IS THE THING YOU’VE ALWAYS KNOWN YOU’RE MEANT TO DO?
If you want to try and pretend you don’t know, then flat out I’m not the mentor for you in any way. To the point where I’d prefer you don’t even read my stuff, let alone consider working with me! And look, I don’t mean you have to be able to define it and pitch it to me in an elevator.
You just have to be able to feel it, and most of all?
You have to be able to admit –
And fully –
That it’s about freaking time you got off your ass and DID THE THING!
A year ago you said next year, a week ago you said this week, yesterday you said today, but honey today never comes and the future is NOW.
And I get it. God do I get it! Confession time?
I still haven’t given MY all to MY thing! You think I’m up here every day preaching on my stand, looking down sternly from the halls of success and wanting to just smack YOU down and in some way help you lift yourself UP to living your true dreams?!
No! I’m down there with you. I’m speaking to ME with the stuff I write. Sometimes a past version of me, but today … today I speak to the NOW me. The one who is tired of tomorrow never arriving, heck TODAY never even arriving because something within her wonders –
What if –
I gave it my all –
Actually wrote as much as I want, spoke as much as I want, went FULLY into the truths I want to share and CREATED all that I want –
And it didn’t ‘work’ –
Or worse still it didn’t MATTER.
And what would it MEAN?
Can I tell you what it would mean, if you knew you’d finally laid yourself on the line for your dreams and then it didn’t ‘work’ or it didn’t make the difference you want it to make?
IT WOULD MEAN YOU’D LAID YOURSELF ON THE LINE FOR YOUR DREAMS.
And I don’t know about you, but that alone seems like a pretty great fucking outcome. Imagine the feeling of knowing that finally – FINALLY! – you’d given it your all, NO HOLDS BARRED. Do you think you’d be filled with self-respect, a sense of empowerment? Do you think that if it didn’t at first WORK but yet you’d fully COMMITTED you’d just. keep. going because that’s what you DO when you’re DOING THE THING YOU WERE BORN TO DO?!
And do you think –
That maybe –
Just maybe –
You’d help even one person? (And probably so many more)
And that if you helped even ONE person then it DID FUCKING MATTER TO THEM, but more importantly when you think about significance, and whether what you’re called to do is ‘even worth anything’, it’s actually just about YOU DOING WHAT YOU WERE CALLED TO DO …
Which means that the DOING in fact IS the outcome!
Don’t you see?
We hold ourselves back, every freaking day, through the various fears which essentially boil down to what if what if what if and a BIG part of that is CAN I REALLY DO THAT AND WILL IT EVEN MATTER?
I don’t even think the ‘will it work’ thing is the real thing we’re scared of! I think the true fear is will it MATTER, will YOU matter, will anybody even GIVE A DAMN if you BARE YOUR SOUL AND OPEN YOURSELF UP FOR ALL TO SEE!
And the thing is, well the thing is ….
As much as it would be nice to have the world fall at your feet and throw you your millions –
And as much as I fully and FIRMLY believe that the path to true wealth IS going to be by you BARING YOUR SOUL AND DOING WHAT YOU WERE BORN TO DO, and so long as you’re committed to DOING it, day in and day out, and actually doing it FULLY where you NEVER EVER STOP, then you WILL reach your millions –
But the THING?
Well the thing is none of that stuff is the reason to do it, is it?
Is you do it because you need to do it.
Because you’ve always needed to do it.
And because it’s never going to go away and NOTHING ELSE MATTERS to YOU my beauty except for doing the thing you’ve always known you were meant to do!
So in short …
If right now you’re not ‘there’ …
And you wonder if you can ‘make it’ if you do what you were born for …
Honestly, in my heart of hearts I fully believe that EVERYBODY can make it doing what they were born for IF they will give it their all …
But I also believe that even if it NEVER brought you money, fame, fortune, that the ONLY way you can truly make it in terms of waking up every day and LOVING THE LIFE YOU LIVE?
Is living the life you’re MEANT TO FUCKING LIVE.
And what’s more?
I know you believe the same. It’s all very well to say that we want it all and want it now.
But if we’re chasing everything but the ONE THING WE REALLY WANT?
Then what the heck is the point?
And do you REALLY think you’re ever going to get ‘there’ when you’re not actually having a crack, a whack, able to say you’re giving it your EVERYTHING, day in and day out for as long as it TAKES?
And you won’t.
So you can take your current ‘successes’, and although they may well be pretty and shiny and SO nice to look at and preen over, THEY MEAN NOTHING.
Not when you’re not doing THAT.
Not when you haven’t even really tried!
So enough fucking around sister.
If you don’t do it now, you’ll never change and THEN YOU’LL DIE.
And I don’t know about you, but I’d say that getting to THERE? Is not what you meant by getting there.
Do what matters to you, NOT because of the outcome you THINK it should generate for you, or because you believe (and I do too!) that it’s where your wealth and fame is MEANT to be found, but do it –
And finally –
And SIMPLY –
And that alone is all the outcome you really need.
And if it’s not?
IT NEVER MATTERED IN THE FIRST PLACE baby, so let it go.
Either way –
Don’t forget –
Life is Now. Press Play.
Just launched baby, and the bonuses are dropping hot for you TODAY.
