Nike’s most famous quote. Sounds so easy. Just Do It. But up til now, not so easy for me in building my business. Too many head stories that kept me in inaction.
This past week was one of a lot of self reflection and contemplation of the realization that NOW is the time to take 100% action towards my desire.
Haanels Master Key System part 13-22 states:
In the first place, we must put our knowledge into practice. Nothing can be accomplished in any other way. The athlete may read books and lessons on physical training all his life, but unless he begins to give out strength by actual work he will never receive any strength; he will eventually get exactly what he gives; but he will have to give it first.
So there it is. I must reset my focus to doing. Taking action. Getting it done. Doing the work. Doing what it takes.
Now I’m ok with it. With taking action. I’m not sure why it took me a couple of years to get to this point… maybe confidence. Maybe I wasn’t ready to fully commit. Not sure… but I do know I am ready to do the work… take action, and move forward in my business.
Who is this person? I once knew how she would respond to frustration… with anger. Or how she would procrastinate and let life pile up. I remember how unfocused she was in her search and chase for the new shiney idea or project.
Today I know a very focused person. I see someone with absolute clarity of what she wants and taking steps to making it happen.
She is happy, joking, and not having the need to be a control freak.
This is my weekend of servant leadership as I crew our team retreat in Lake Las Vegas. We have early mornings and late evenings… and being on crew means we are there in the room an hour before the participants, and when the participants call it a night, we go off to prepare the items for the next day. Our objective… to fully support the participants and speakers so they have an amazing event.
The topic… leadership. But it’s not just about our businesses… it is really about the relationship we have with others and especially with ourselves.
So I brought all my readings and notecards, and am making the time to stay present with my promises to MKMMA.
Everywhere I see examples of the 7 Laws. I am becoming more and more aware of the Law Of Attraction. I am especially seeing this in interaction between participants at our retreat… subtle nuances like the outgoing and vocal people hang out and choose partners that are of like personality. Same with the timid and more quiet ones… they hang together.
A topic that was discussed at great length was how our beliefs from childhood affects our adult performance.
The speaker made a simple statement that seemed to be almost dismissed but hit me square between my eyes.
Eagles don’t fly, they just DO.
I really thought about that simple statement for quite a while. I rolled around in my mind all the excuses I seem to have in my mind that make total sense to me as to why I don’t go out and DO what it takes to make my business grow the way I want it to. All the beliefs, fears, and insecurities… all the thought power expended in trying to figure it out and “heal” the mind game. All to no avail.
What if I simply just DO instead of THINK.
After all, I really want to be the eagle and fly…..
