I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching the past 6 months or so, and have really come to a conclusion about business success. I’ve always been a believer in taking action, but like most of us, sometimes do not practice what I believe. With that being said, I have a new phrase I’m going to live by.
“Do It Now”
Pretty simple isn’t it? When I first heard the phrase from Nike “Just Do It”, I loved it! How profound and yet so simple and obvious. But this new phrase takes it to another level for us. Those of us who take it to heart and practice it daily.
I did not come up with this on my own. I am extracting from an excellent ebook I’m reading on my kindle, by W.Clement Stone called, The Success System The Never Fails.
Here is 2 profound paragraphs from the book that I think is worth reading, absorbing and applying, that I know will change your mindset, and get you on the path to a successful business and career:
You’ve heard of inertia right? It’s a universal law. It takes more energy to overcome inertia in getting started from a standstill than to continue the momentum of a moving body when it is once in motion. It’s the fear of the unknown that keeps a person from starting, even though he may have a strong desire.
1. Repeat, “Do It Now!” to yourself 50 times or more in the morning and evening, and whenever it occurs to you throughout the day, for the next several days. Thus it will be imprinted indelibly in your subconscious. 2. Every time it is desirable for you to do something you may not feel like doing and the self-starter Do It Now! flashes from your subconscious to your conscious mind-immediately…act.
Stop Procrastination Tip
Only think of one thing at a time, but stay in action. Be completely focused on the one problem you are working on. Bring everything you’ve got to it. Focus all your resources on that one problem, and keep reminding yourself, this is all I’ve got, so that you can bring your most creative effort to it. You won’t hold anything back that way.
When you lie about time, you become an enemy of time. Time is against me. It’s running out. There’s never enough! When you forget time, and focus on one problem instead, time is all of a sudden on your side. Time is your ally. It is the stuff of which life is made!
And as always, I’d love to hear from you! Give me a shout out down below and some FB or Twitter love! Thanks so much!
