I’d argue that it’s not what we do, it’s HOW we do it that influences our outcomes.
You ever go to a meeting or a party after you’ve had a bad day? Did you let your bad day come to the party with you?
How’d that go for you?
Not so good, right?
You didn't make any new fans at that shindig did you?
Why? Because you "showed up" to that party with a cloak of darkness around your shoulders.
People felt it as soon as you walked in, no matter how hard you were trying to hide it.
The other option you had was to transcend your circumstances of the day and show up as your best and true self.
This isn't easy to do. It's really hard and it takes practice.
Mastering our mind is the greatest challenge we have as entrepreneurs, as parents, and generally as people.
Who are you going to BE this year?
We all get afraid. We're human after all.
It’s what we do when we feel fear creep up on us that separates the successful from the unsuccessful. The fulfilled from the unfulfilled.
When you set goals and they scare the crap outta you what does that say to you?
Does it say "Stop"?
Does it say "put that goal aside while I hide in an activity that's more comfortable me"?
It should say “GO”!
It should tell you that you are on the right path and that on the other side of that fear is the next level you’ve been reaching for.
Switch your way of thinking and get excited by fear! It’s your new barometer for judging whether something is worthy of your effort or not.
