If I had
heard what I'm telling you in this episode, 20 years ago, I would
be a millionaire several times over. This is number one thing
that's stopped me from reaching my goals in the past. I'm so
grateful I figured this out. I can't stress to you enough,
learn what's in this episode and it will change your life.
Fears Stop Us
I go over
the fears that stop us in a one page report I put together on the 5
Fears which kill out ability to finish. you can get it at
PDesmondAdams.com/5fears or if you’re on your smart phone, send a
TEXT to 33444 with the word 5Fears (all one word) in the body of
Failure.. that’s one is easy for people to accept but...
Success, I’ve found is just as, if not MORE, likely to stop people.
But how do you know if you have a fear of success? I go into
that in the report I mentioned and a follow email I send just on
that topic, but to give you an idea…. If we have a BURDENSOME view
of what success looks like, we may fear it.
Mediocrity is a huge issue for me. If I’m not done with a
project, then in my mind, it’s not mediocre.. it can’t be, because
I’m not done with it. Think about that.
just 3 of the 5 fears. It almost always comes down to fears
which keep us busy but never finished.
Inertia - Don’t Stop Until It’s Done
whole inertia thing you’ve heard about in science classes… it
applied to your projects as well.
stop, you will have one hell of a time trying to get it started
ever run a race you know first hand, when you slow down and
eventually stop, you have a HUGE amount of mental and physical
inertia to overcome.
stop… adjust your speed but never ever stop until you reach the
Take All You Want But Eat All You Take
was a kid, my dad always repeated the same thing, every meal.. He
said he got it it from the Army (how could it be wrong..? haha):
“Take all You Want But Eat All You Take.”
actually a great mindset when it comes to our projects
productivity. I mean, it’s not limiting an any way… Take all
you want. Start as big a project as you desire. Set
your dreams as high as you want. BUT...
you take. Meaning… if you’re going to pile up your plate, you
better make sure you can eat it all. Finish what you started.
on our plate, were eaten the next day… cold. Cold liver and
onions are not that great… even if you like liver. haha..
how to take a smaller bite… FINISH my plate of food and go in for
another serving. Take all you want, but eat all you take.
Success Isn’t About What’s On Your Plate, It’s About What
I find myself sometimes trying to impress people with what I’m
doing… not what I’ve done, but what I’m doing…
Seriously, that’s not easy for me to admit. Sometimes I want
people to think I’m doing something amazing… but I’m only doing it,
I haven’t finished it.
in a food eating contesting, it’s not about how many hot dogs are
on the plate in front of you, it’s about how many aren’t when the
time is up.
out what you can FINISH today. Maybe it’s a big task, a small
project, or a major goal you set a while back. FINISH IT.
there’s nothing within your sights, reset your definition of
