This is for the people who look at the world from a different perspective. The ones who are restless. The ones who strive for change. The ones who see things differently. The ones who don’t accept the status quo. The ones who challenge current thinking patterns. The ones who break down existing barriers. The ones who make the impossible possible. The ones who build new things. The ones most people call crazy, but we call them passionate. This is for the people just like you and me...
When you work on many different things at the same time you can easily avoid the hard and uncomfortable work and just switch to that other thing you're working on and do the easy and comfortable stuff there.
And it usually works pretty well.
Until you reach that point where you're working on multiple projects at the same time with close to zero real progress where all the easy and comfortable work has already been done and all that's left is the hard and uncomfortable work.
The bad news is this..
We can't avoid the hard and uncomfortable stuff because real progress almost never comes from doing the easy and comfortable stuff.
Real progress almost exclusively comes from doing the hard and uncomfortable stuff.
The stuff we usually try to avoid by switching from one thing to the next.
That's why it's so hard to focus.
Because to focus means that you have to deal with the hard and uncomfortable stuff.
The stuff we usually don't want to deal with.
But doing the hard and uncomfortable stuff is the only way to make real progress.
And sometimes it's so hard that you can't possibly see how it's ever going to change again.
Because the truth is that it's just pretty damn hard to believe in yourself.
At times almost impossible.
So how do you start believing in yourself (again) then?
Here's a little trick...
Do more of the things you actually really believe in.
This will help you to start believing in yourself (again).
One day and one step at a time.
Don't believe me?
You don't have to.
Just think about the times you felt most confident.
The times you really believed in yourself.
It's likely been those times when you did things you actually really believed in.
So why not do that?
P.S. Doing things you actually really believe in has another advantage: you'll be a lot more motivated and inspired to give it all you got and put in the time, energy and resources it needs to keep getting better at it. And the better you get at it, the more you'll believe in yourself and the things you do...
