Okay, so those things that you really, really want…what are YOU willing to do to get them? Who are you willing to become? What are you willing to give up? What are you willing to change and where are you willing to go the extra mile to achieve the desired result?
In order to produce miracles of change, you must give them a place to rest. This means that you must make some type of forward motion toward the results you want. Once you do that the Universe itself will empower you to move mountains. Most people sit around waiting for miracles to drop out of the sky instead of taking direct action to create them.
Direct action requires responsibility, discipline, integrity and commitment on your part. When looking to create miracles or a shift in circumstances, everything has to be in alignment. If you are intending to produce a major result you clean up your side of the street so to speak… do things like keep your word, stop complaining, look to help other people, see how you can challenge yourself, be disciplined, and be committed to the result you want to see NO MATTER WHAT.
Sometimes your shifts of behavior will be simple adjustments and sometimes they will be far more difficult. Anyone that knows me knows that I am a HUGE coffee drinker and every morning I pour myself a cup of coffee in this very large mug and every morning it ends up getting cold and I end up pouring half of it out—this morning I saw in my cabinet what I considered to be a very small and useless coffee cup, however it occurred to me that if I used the smaller cup I could avoid throwing half my coffee away because it was cold….so I did something different and used the smaller cup—imagine my surprise when I actually drank what was in the cup and didn’t pour any out. In that moment it dawned on me that maybe making changes in our behavior for a different result was just that simple…perhaps the solution sits right in front of us every morning….
It’s funny really when you find yourself reacting to someone else’s childish and foolish behavior…you know what they are trying to do…get your attention…they can’t get your attention like an adult, by actually conversing…so they start acting out…because of course, any attention for these types of dysfunctional people is a win.
So they act out and you find yourself, much to your horror, reacting to them. Instead of doing what needs to be done and ignoring them. People like this DO NOT deserve our attention, their communication skills are sub-par and instead of having effective communication that works they fall into passive-aggressive, narcissistic behavior patterns. People like this are flawed at such a deep level that they don’t even see that they are like hamsters running on a wheel to nowhere….FAST.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. So us thinking that these people will behave differently is just as pitiful as what they are doing in the first place. When people SHOW you who they are, BELIEVE them.
Leave the crazy to the crazy people, grab your toys and exit the building…do not react to people like this—respond to them by ignoring their attempts to engage you and move on. People like this will only steal your energy and keep you from doing what you need to do…if someone wants to be in your life, let them ask. If you need to chase they don’t deserve to be on your radar.
You are worth so much more than that. The people that belong with you will make themselves known and it won’t be a circus, it will be peaceful. So stop reacting and everything else will take care of itself.
‘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.
