A few months ago I was going through some nasty back pain. Every morning I wake up with pain, pain all through the whole day, then the end of the day with pain. Taking a bunch of natural pain supplements were not working enough to even reduce the pain, but I know I didn’t want to be taking the pharmaceutical equivalent.
Then my friend looked at me one day asking what was wrong? I told her about my back, and then she said “what are you doing about it?” Well not much, apparently. She recommended a physiotherapist, who was a massive help! He taught me stretches I could do to help alleviate my pains, and I just started getting better day by day.
Imagine that small sentence? “What are you doing about it?” A measly six words, was enough to start breaking me out of the funk due to back pain.
Then a realization occurred! Why don’t people apply this phrase to reaching our dreams & goals.
You want to be rich? What are you doing about it?
You want to be happy? What are you doing about it?
You want that nice car, house, trips every year? What are you doing about it?
You want to get out of debt, or start a business? What are you doing about it?
Whatever it is we always want to achieve, we can get when we put our mind to it, and then follow it up with hard work. We will not succeed if we keeping living like a victim, or if we think that there’s nothing we can do about our situation. It’s all up to ourselves, not anyone else, that will put us into a better situation.
Once we’ve made the decision that we will do something about our situation, then the tools to get us there will start appearing. People like Tony Robbins, and Brendon Burchard, authors like Paulo Coehlo will somehow find their speeches and books into your life. If we then realize that the instruments to our success is already in our midst, our next step is to apply these actions into our daily lives.
So, what are your goals, and what are you doing about it?
