And I am now feeling like a student of action. I am studying what makes us move, what creates flow and what stops us dead in our tracks.
Today -- let's talk about consequences.
As long as you want the benefits (of the goal) with no consequence -- you will always stay stuck.
Everything has consequences. People may judge you, people may not approve, you might outgrow people in your life. You might lose money. You might have to re-paint. You might be vulnerable. You might get hurt.
Instead, focus on what 'might' happen if you do fulfill your goal.
You might be empowered. You might go to the next level. You might fully love. You might meet new people. You might feel fulfilled. You might help others. You might feel better than you have in years.
Focus on the benefits of the goal -- and risk the consequences.
You are capable of handling the "might" consequences -- but you deserve to have the "might" benefits.
Tony Robbins, the master of motivation, has The Ultimate Success Formula:
1. Know your outcome.
2. Get yourself to take action by deciding to do so.
3. Notice what you're getting from your actions.
4. If what you are doing is not working, change your approach.
Seems simple enough, doesn't it?
Where are you ready to take action in your life?
