I don’t believe in the word “should”.
I believe in listening to my inner voice and listening to my body when it says that it is tired. However, I am NOT saying that you should listen when it’s trying to be lazy. There is a major difference here.
Most of us grew up thinking that success only comes from hard work. I believe this is true, partially.
I believe success COMES from SMART work, not HARD work.
For example, if you had a really bad system for working, and you kept doing the same thing 40 hours a week, you’re not being SMART….you’re just wasting time.
Most human beings probably can’t concentrate for more than 1.5 – 2 hours.
That is WHY I believe we should listen to our bodies and mind and feelings. When we need a break, we will start to lose focus. Do jumping jacks, run around the block.
For me, I go and watch a movie at the $2 movie theater or I walk around the neighborhood. I hang out with friends at random parts of my week, but that allows for some relaxation and fun….because once I’m back home, I am WORKING FRIEND!
When I have snapped back from having fun, I WANT to work.
I believe that HUMAN BEINGS are MOTIVATED by desire.
What do I mean by this?
If I tell you to sit at a desk for 10 hours a day, would you want to? Probably not.
If I tell you to sit and work on a project that you could potentially reap $20,000 from, would you do it? Yes.
Desire. You desire that money. For something, whatever it is.
If we could get RID of the SHOULDS and the CONTROL, we can start motivating people by knowing their inner DESIRES. Start to observe what your friends, your boss, your coworkers, your mom or dad, your relatives, your husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend DESIRE.
Most of us desire a better life.
This BETTER LIFE is DIFFERENT for everyone.
My desire is to live a life of leisure and smart work. I want to work smart, and reap immensely for my talent and skill. I desire to love and help people with my talent. It’s not really about “should”, I think it’s about conquering the fears that stand in the way of our desires….my desire is to build successful coaching and real estate businesses.
Like any other human being, I have fears too. I have fears of rejection, fears of failure, but everyday, I push through….because I believe in life, in myself, in people, in God, in promises fulfilled.
I believe in my childhood dreams, do you?
