When people want change in their life, they usually set up a starting time or date when they plan to officially begin their journey. This happens more often at the beginning of a month, or the start of a brand new year (Resolutions).
Today is September 1st, The very first day of a brand new month and for many, things will still be the same. When you operate on the idea that you have to start trying for your goals in life at a certain time, you end up putting it off and eventually quitting, this is why most New Years Resolutions never happen, because people focus more on the starting date rather than the work involved or the process.
Do You “Leap” Towards Your Goals?
Do you operate each day with intent? do you have expectations of yourself?, because if you don’t you could be one of those people who likes to start things but never finishes them and this is a personality trait that is not good to have especially if you are trying to carve out a new path in your life.
If you don’t discipline yourself then your competition will. Keep in mind that everyday someone is excited to do what you are putting off today! Are you one of those people who are too afraid to make cold calls to prospects? If so, then you are allowing other people to steal opportunity away from you and all you had to do to allow that to happen was, let someone out perform you!
What does that say? It says that they want results more than you do so how do you fix this? If you have always been one of those people who just can’t seem to make things come together and because of that you quit whatever it was you were trying to do and then you move onto something else in the hopes of making that work, if that sounds a lot like your life, then understand that you are STUCK!
I call this part of life “The Gap” because this is where most people are at and they refuse to address this problem. The Gap represents a spot where you can’t seem to ever get past, you may see some results for yourself but they won’t last and because of that you have accepted the idea that this is just how things are going to be in your life. The truth is you need to be tested more outside of your comfort zone because when people do not grow or get past the same issues over and over again, its because they have an Accountability problem and that all starts with confidence and your skill set.
“The Gap” Seperates You From Your Potential Earnings
I have never met anyone who was good at something who didn’t want to display their talents. A good singer has no problem belting out a few chords, a good guitar player has no problem playing you a song, a good comedian has no problem telling a joke, so why is it that a salesperson or a new business owner is the only person where people always seem to get stuck? It’s because they are not really good at what they want to do yet so they don’t do it as much and then their results suffer. A good joke teller has bad nights on a stage, they get heckled and they just keep moving forward and that is where some of you get lost.
When you get challenged in life or in your business, if you are not prepared for those things it can derail you and throw you off track just enough to sway your confidence in another direction and when that happens, your daily performance suffers and you stay inside “The Gap” of life.
