It is a fact, most people don’t take action because of fear.
Fear of failure.
Fear of hard work.
Fear of discouragement.
Fear of commitment.
Fear of ability.
Fear, fear, fear.
The problem with allowing fear to rule your decision making is that you won’t take chances and without taking chances you’ll likely live a mediocre life….and who wants that!?
I will be the first to tell you…and agree with you….that fighting your inner demons – that voice in your head that tells you that you aren’t worthy…or that you can’t do something (i.e. lose weight, ask a girl / guy out, address conflict, quit your job, start a business, get off your freaken ass and become a great father / mother / husband / wife / friend, change your life, etc…..) is a difficult thing to do.
However, owning your inner voice is absolutely essential to your success.
If your inner voice tells you that you can’t do something, you must.
Let me type that one for you again because I want you to correct people every time you hear them say they CAN’T do something…..or when your inner voice attempts to convince you that you can’t do something or should not take action to make your life better.
IF YOU CAN’T, YOU MUST.
Life is not easy, in fact it’s extremely difficult for most people regardless of how much money they have, the status of their career, how great their spouse is…..
Life is also short. For instance, less than two weeks ago one of my close friends from childhood died at the age of 35. Everyone reading this story has a similar story.
I want you to live your life with passion, energy, love, and conviction.
Grab opportunity by the balls (sorry ladies) and own your future.
If you can’t, you must.
Take action today that will forever change your life…..and don’t forget….when you hear a friend, loved one, or colleague say they Can’t do something….please tell them the truth – They Must.
And as for your inner voice, own it!
