Let’s Get Real

Let’s talk about getting real. Getting real with ourselves, or yourself.  I have so many people and clients tell me I don’t have time. I don’t have the money. I don’t have all the things. Right? Really the question is do you want to lose weight? Do you want to do the thing that it is that you’re saying you want to do? So, really getting real with yourself. I just recently had a co-worker who wanted to learn programming. He made the comment, “I wish I could program.” Another co-worker of mine said, “Well, you can. You just have to try harder.”

This is so true right! If you want something you just have to go get it.  Right away I chimed in and said, “Well, with my clients, I just call this failing ahead of time. What you need to do every time that you tell yourself “I can’t,” every time that the universe has given you an opportunity that would have been amazing, but you said “I can’t” because of either time or money or some other resource you feel you are lacking. I really want you to ask yourself why? The subconscious brain is not only trying to keep us safe and keep us in the cave. Like cavemen back in the day. But it keeps us from going out of the cave to find food. The subconscious mind really keeps us from working for what it is that we want. It wants us to stay safe.

So our brain comes up with this excuse of, “I don’t have the time” or “I don’t have the money.” In the moment, I totally get that you feel like you don’t have the time and you don’t have the money. I have actually self coached myself in the middle of a conversation with somebody trying to give me an opportunity. When we actually coached through it, what we found was I didn’t have the confidence to just do it. I had so much resistance to doing it that I just didn’t want to do it. My main excuse was money. When she pointed that out like hey this is your brain just going into that resistance again. I was like, “Oh absolutely! It is okay. I’m going to do it.”

I think a big question to ask yourself when you’re in that moment. When you feel like you don’t have enough time, you don’t have enough money. When your subconscious is trying to sabotage your results. If you can recognize yourself saying “No” to something and just ask yourself, “Do I really want this result and do I believe that I can get this result from this thing or this person or this product?” Whatever it is. If you believe that you can get the result from that thing and you believe that it is possible that you could get that result by what is being offered then say yes! It’s never about the time. It’s never about the money. When you want something bad enough you get it. If you want to go on a vacation you figure out how. You find the money to go on vacation. Maybe it’s you borrow it from a credit card. Maybe you pull out of retirement. Maybe you just don’t finish your yard this year. And No I’m not saying to go into debt to get whatever it is that you’re thinking about getting or whatever resulted is that you want. All I’m saying is if you want something bad enough you will figure out a way to get it. When we want something bad enough we figure out how to make the time work. We figure out how the money is going to work. It just might be if you decide you were all in and you’re fully committed enough to saying yes to yourself, you might just get that result. Regardless of that product service or person that’s offering it. Because it’s never the circumstance. It’s never the facts of a situation that give us our results. It’s always our thoughts about it.

Here is a good example. I have a FREE 42 day jumpstart program. Some have done it, but so many have not. So it doesn’t matter if something is free or it is 10 thousand dollars. If you don’t want the result bad enough, you will never get it. Regardless of the cost. That is why it is never about the money.  If you have a belief that it will work. You have a belief that you can get it and you want your result, you will figure out how to get it. Now, in the case of my coworker, who wants to learn programming. If he really really really wanted to learn programming he would figure it out. He would watch YouTube videos. He would take classes. He would read books. He would do everything in his power to figure out how to program. And most of the training is FREE and he has endless time to do it.  Now, let’s be real with the ultimate question. Do you want to learn how to program? In his case. Probably not. And do you know how I know that answer. Because he would have already done it. That’s okay if you don’t want to do something. That’s totally fine. Just don’t blame it on outside circumstance for your decision. Own that shit. Own that decision. Have the confidence to own that decision. And ultimately let’s get real with ourselves. Get real with yourself. Do you really want to lose weight?? Yes or No. Just be sure you like your reason.
