This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Sariah.
I have a clear vision of what I want. I feel like I'm pretty clear on what my purpose is, but I struggle with some of those actions that I know I need to take in order to move my business forward (like in sales, making cold calls and networking). How do I overcome my struggle with following through with action?
The desire needs to be there, because if it's there, that will be the thing that causes you to overcome whatever resistance there is around the action. If the desire is not there, then the fear will always be stronger than whatever it is that we're saying the desire is.
What do you really want? What is your desire?
You have to ask yourself, are your ideas rooted in you being the best? Or are they rooted in everybody just doing okay, like being safe, being secure and motoring along at that pace?
If you really wanted to be your best you would be thinking, “How do I crush sales? How do I crush it? How do I master this damn thing so I'm the best.” You wouldn't say I'm struggling with it.
So, when I hear somebody use that language, I'm asking myself what is the real motive for what they're saying that they want. And usually a person's not clear on it.
They're not; they may think they're working to be the best, but they're actually working for some different level of safety or certainty in their life.
Because you have to understand something, the fact that you're struggling represents in your mind somehow that there's some uncertainty with that specific task, or that action or how you do it, otherwise you wouldn't be struggling.
If you want to be your best, nobody should be able to expect more from you than you.
Your demand on you should be so much higher.
It should supersede anything anybody else could expect from you, that you don't even care what other people think because your measure of your best is an internal measure.
You need to change what is determining your success and your best because you are doing it in a way where it's being reflected to you by the way others behave or treat you or expect something from you.
It needs to be an internal compass. If you change that one thing, if you just pivot that and really get solid on, you're the best judge of your success and what you're doing, I think these problems will go away.
It's really a practice in becoming very aware of what your own hidden motives in life are. And then getting them the hell out of there and doubling down on what you really, really, really want for yourself and not letting anybody else's opinion, acceptance, or rejection of you matter at all. The only thing that matters is what you think, and you set the bar for what is success in your life. Period.
