Mental Toughness and Success Coach Chris Dorris has written an awesome book called “The Book of Mental Toughness Mantras.” and he commissioned me to give some of the chapters my “Scratch Wisdom” treatment, where I scratch up the words over instrumental beats.
Together, we created a series, and I present to you the seventh installment for your viewing pleasure – The Problem Is The Gift:
The “How?” is in the “What.”
“Inherent within your desires are the mechanics for their own fulfillment.”
We don’t need to consume ourselves with HOW our wants and desires are going to unfold because those details are already embedded within the desires themselves – much like software pre-packaged inside a new computer.
The #1 mistake that I have witnessed people making in the pursuit of their desires is unnecessary waiting.
People wait until they have a certain amount of savings in the bank before they feel financially safe.
They wait until they have a certain title or degree before they feel competent.
They wait until they win a golf tournament before they feel like they belong on the PGA Tour.
Or they simply wait for good results before they feel good.
Possibly the most popular reason that people put so much unnecessary time between themselves and their desires is the “How Obstacle.”
We don’t need to wait to see how our desires will unfold before taking immediate and bold action.
We don’t need to paralyze ourselves into inaction with the “HOW?!” curiosity. Why? Because…
The “How” is in the “What.”
