How often do you tell yourself, “If only I had the money, I would start that business?” How often do you tell yourself, “If I just lose 10 pounds, I will be healthier?” How often do you say to yourself, “If I was rich, then I can just pay off these bills and be debt free?” Here’s the tea. We all say it, have said it, or said something similar to those questions. We feel stuck because we think we must “have” this or “have” that in order to be and do what we want. When we finally get that “have” nothing really changes…and we are right back where we started if not worse off. In this blog post, let’s explore this notion of “have” and see if we can’t find a better way and raise our vibrations to what we want.
Let’s ask ourselves those questions again. Now notice how you feel when you ask yourself that/those question(s)? Did you feel the doubt and fear? Did you hear that little voice say, “Child please… You really?” Of course we all do. Even when I tell myself, if I just close this deal then I will hit this. The only difference is through personal development and investing in my education, I’ve come to learn how to deal with this and I’ve made some real strides in my world.
Now let’s ask this age old question – when did you get your driver’s license? When did you graduate from high school? How old were you? Did you notice something… those were at all at particular ages. You can remember the age you were at the time. You can somewhat recall those moments in vivid details. Here’s why – it’s because who you were “be”ing” at the time.
We have it all backwards in thinking if we have, then we will do, and then be. When reality all of our lives it has been be. do, then have! Let’s go back to your driver’s license. How old did you have to “be” to get a permit/license? In the US, it’s 15-16 years old. Once you hit that number you were eligible to get a permit. Then you had to take a test or tests…to have the license/permit.
Now I can hear some of you saying, well of course. That’s the law. Okay – how about graduating from high school, college, graduate/doctoral school. In order to get even a degree, you had to “be” enrolled as a student. Then you had to “do” the required curriculum as outlined by the school/state etc and pass. Once you did all that, then you can “have” your degree.
See, I don’t think you are getting this. Let’s look at the job you currently have. I know you hate it, don’t like it, or which for something better. In order for you to get that job, you had to “be” a candidate. To “be” a candidate you had to “do” the application/resume submission either on line or in person. Then you had to “do” an interview or interview. Then if you passed the interview/interviews, then you were offered the position and brought on board. Even after all that, still “be” with the organization you have to “do” what’s expected or better, in order to still “have” the position.
Listen, I hope you are starting to get this. When I got it after listening to an InnerCircle Audio with my current program that’s teaching me how to be an internet mogul. I was like man… oh man! This is life right here. See I got that if I want to be a 200% of quota producer I had to “be” that person. I then had to do what that person would do, in order to have the 200% quota.
When we look out over the land, everyone is “being” who they are. We can tell by their actions, which is consistent with their being and their results. It never fails. Why do you think you feel a twinge of guilt or feel like crap when you focus on anything contrary to what you really want to be? Those inspired actions you ignore. Those pushes you to take this internet marketing course, read that book, call that person, or just hit the gym (when you don’t feel like it) are the Universe’s attempts to help you get on track to doing what needs to be done that’s in alignment with who you said you wanted to be.
When we just be who we want to be, then we will do / take the actions consistent with that person, then we will have what that person has. Let’s say it like this. If you want to be a person who makes 100k, 1 million, 10 million, then you must take actions, learn the stuff, do the stuff that a person who is a 100k, 1 million, 10 million earner does, then you can have those results! Till you be that person, you will never do, then you will never have.
If I want to be 17 mph average cyclist, then I must do the work, then I can have that result. If I want to be a successful 7 figure internet marketer, then I must do the stuff that’s required, then I can have that result. We can look through out history at those who tried to get the results/or temporarily had the results without “being” the person who did what it took to get those results. We call them one hit wonders, we make insulting television shows about them, they are the lottery winners who are broke 5 years later. They are family members or friends who blames everyone but themselves for their problem(s)It doesn’t matter if you want to be a musician, artist, actor, or bum on the street. All that is required is for you to be that person, then do what that person does, then you can have the results of that person. So grab a pen and paper. Write down what is the best you possible. How would you be? Would you take on new risk? Would you lead a team of 100’s/1000’s/10,000’s of people. Write it down!!! Yes, the best you possible. How much money do you make as the best you possible. Write a specific amount. Is it 5k, 10k, 30k, 100k, 3k per month? What does the best of you “do” to make that kind of money to have the things that the best of you want? What kind of results does the “best” of you have? How much in savings? What does your house look like? What kind of car does the best you drive? How much does the best you invest in your personal development? Our imagination is powerful and fuel for the soul…so use and create the person you want to be. Then do what that person does, so that you can have the results you want. We are so worth it, because we are.
Here’s to the best of “us.”
