‘Willing to do whatever it takes’ is a concept foreign to many, which explains why most people do not have the results that they want in life. ‘Willing to do whatever it takes’ means just what it says “whatever it takes”…this may mean staying up all night to get the job done, it may mean making cold calls when you don’t feel like it, it may mean helping someone if you aren’t in the mood, it may mean getting up at 5am to work on your goals before you start your day. It certainly means making yourself uncomfortable in some way, “whatever it takes” is never easy and it never feels good, however it WILL enable you to execute the results you seek.
Sadly, most people that think they work so hard are actually working within their comfort zone, and then they wonder why their HUGE, AUDACIOUS goals never come to pass. Working within your comfort zone will net you the same circumstances and results that you have always had. If things are not moving along the way you want them to, then you are not doing enough to create momentum. Momentum is difficult to create, yet once it starts rolling it will knock down everything in its path and you can keep it moving with consistent focused effort.
If you have a goal that you want to complete then you must be willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen. Do not let anyone deter you, delay you or distract you…keep your head down and stay focused on doing whatever needs to be done. Executing results is not impossible, it simply requires consistency, commitment and a willingness to do ‘whatever it takes’. That means no more excuses, only results.
This will be an unpopular way to behave in most circles because the majority of people prefer to offer reasons and excuses instead of results, so if you are truly committed to doing something different you may need to change the company you keep.
