The Number One Reason for Not Achieving Remarkability

The Excuse of All Excusses. “Why I can’t….”

What the heck happened to why I can!!

I just had lunch with some of my colleagues.  These folks are truly my inspiration.  They probably don’t realize it …………they are the reason I keep going.  Their hope and heart is the fuel in my day!!  We all have people like that in our lives………I know you do too!  It had been a while since we all had gotten together.  It was awesome to catch up.

We listened to a short clip from Jim Rohn:  The magic of Part-time.  Jim Rohn talks about “working part time on your fortune while you work full time on your job!”  Go to YouTube…….search on Jim Rohn.  There are 60 clips to inspire you forward.  He is my mentor.  I heard him speak 30 years ago.  Don’t miss an opportunity to hear him.

Jim’s talk reminded me to two simple concepts:  Your moment of transition & your process of transformation.

If any of you have moved past the point of saying I want to do something different and are making some steps in that direction you can talk about your moment of transition.  The moment of transition is when you make the choice to change things, pursue your life purpose, follow a different path, change careers, lose weight or get fit!  It is that moment when you say I have had enough………..your brain shifts and going back is not an option!  All of us in this group having lunch together can pin point our moment of transition!

Where we are struggling is in the process of transformation.   We all may be in different places of transformation, but at times the process is painful and slow, heck …..most of the time it is!!!

We all went around the table sharing where we are in our transformation process.  For each of us the group offered ideas on areas where each of us seemed to be stumped.  The ideas were great!  The conversation was tremendous.  It was an awesome brainstorming session.

Here is what I began to hear with almost every idea…………….

“I have already tried that….”,  “That won’t work…”, “They would never let me do that……”, “Someone else already tried that…….”, “What would people think?…….”, “I’m not sure……”….and  the list goes on…….

The reasons why it would not work flowed like water down a mountain stream………..fast and furious.  I sat in amazement !!!!  Here were six of the most awesome people I know.  Each of us saying why it would not work, WITHOUT EVEN TRYING!!!!!  WHEN DID SELF SABATAGE BECOME SO STRONG?  REAL FAILURE COMES OUT OF DOING NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DOING NOTHING!!!!!!!  DOING NOTHING!!!

The next time you’re faced with the obstacle in your transformation process to becoming remarkable…………………ASK A DIFFERENT QUESTION!

Why I Can …………………?

WRITE DOWN THE 10 REASONS WHY YOU CAN, KEEP IT BY YOUR BED.  READ IT EVERY MORNING, READ IT EVERY NIGHT………….THEN GO DO IT!!!

I DARE YOU!
