How can I become more successful?
How can I get that promotion?
How can I make sure my kid’s grow up with CANDo attitude?
How can I boost my self-esteem?
If you’re asking yourself these kinds of questions, the answer is actually pretty simple, the toughie lies in convincing you to see things the right way.
When you’re on the outside looking in, you see successful people achieving what they want quickly with little, if any, effort. You believe they have what they want simply because they were in the right place at the right time, had luck on their side or were particularly talented. When you try to achieve what you want, you never get any of these advantages: what you experience is a slow process with gruelling, hard work and days if not months of thankless effort.
You see it this way, because that is actually the reality not just for you but also for those successful people that have achieved what they want.
Everyone sees the moment of glory, but few notice the moments of hard work, sweat and tears behind it!
Sure there are a few born with the proverbial silver spoon but for MOST, achieving what they want is a slow process with gruelling, hard work and days if not months of thankless effort. The difference is, their Inner Imps Self Discipline and Perseverance showed up for work and had them keep going, REPEATEDLY until their moment of glory arrived. There Inner Imp Courage had the cojones to stick his neck out and go for what they wanted and their Inner Imp Honesty was honest enough to admit that they, and they alone, were the ones that could achieve what they wanted – or not!
Have your Inner Imps Self Discipline and Perseverance get you into the habit of taking small actions towards your goals and dreams, REGULARLY and that will build momentum. These actions aren’t sexy, nobody will thank you for doing them, your Inner Imps Doubt and Laziness will be laughing openly at you, asking you, “Why bother?” as well as trying to convince you that you’ll never achieve what you want and things aren’t so bad as they are!
The truth is, you just have the Self Discipline and Perseverance to KEEP GOING, you’ll eventually get what you want – or at least be nearer to it than you were at the start.
Having your Inner Imps Self Discipline and Perseverance hounding at you to KEEP GOING is the only way to achieve what you want.
If you’d like to know how to inspire your Inner Imps Self Discipline and Perseverance to help you KEEP GOING, keep an eye out for our forthcoming series of CANDoable Life Lessons. I’ll be sharing more about them soon and they’ll help you achieve the life you want.
