We only do what we really WANT to do. I really want that job, that car, guy, girl, money, vacation, whatever. Realizing what it is we want is usually the easy part. And once we know, we’ll stop at nothing to get it. We’ll spend all our time, all our money, all our energy and waking hours doing whatever it takes to go after it.
So the only thing standing in your way of getting what you want is how BAD you want it. Ask yourself out loud.
And it doesn’t matter what “it” is. Want to quit your job, but don’t know how you’ll make money to pay bills and eat? Ask yourself – how bad do I want to quit my job? If you want it as bad as you want to breathe, you’ll find a way. If you want it bad enough, you’ll stop at nothing and leave no rock unturned to figure out how to decrease or eliminate those bills or change your eating habits or whatever.
Don’t want it that bad? Go ahead and make up an excuse. Then replace that excuse with “Because I don’t WANT to” and you’ve successfully held yourself accountable for what you want and what you don’t want. Congratulations!
It’s all up to you. –> See also “We Always Have A Choice.”
