Some tough talk today. That's ok. You don't come to my site or join my Facebook business group just for fluffy inspirational mojo and cute memes, right?
I hear empty promises all the time. "I want to do this." "I want to do that."
No you don't.
How do I know? Because you're not actually going to even try.
No steps will be taken beyond speaking it aloud.
Zero progress will be made towards earning this thing you claim to want.
It was something you said in the moment, with no thought beforehand other than, "This feels like a good thing to say right now." And as soon as it was said, it was out of your head. I'll see you a year from now and nothing will have changed.
That "desire" wouldn't even dent a marshmallow.
You didn't go home and work on this outcome you allegedly want. You did nothing to fan the spark of this supposed goal.
You didn't write it down, or tack it to your vision board, or break down any steps to take. You never made any phone calls, or told your upline or an accountability partner, or penciled it into your planner. You didn't do any research, or Google any how-to's, or strategize your plan of attack.
Did you really want this thing? Nope. All you did was speak a wish disguised in the wording of a want.
I think our businesses would be very different if the next time we were tempted to say, "I want to promote to the next level," we actually stopped and examined how much we truly wanted that thing.
And took a moment and thought about what truly desiring something means. It ALWAYS means ACTION.
It always moves us from our parking space.
So don't say it unless you mean it. Unless you're motviated to get in gear and actually go for it. Don't say you want to unless you're willing to.
Otherwise all I hear are empty promises.
I'll see you next year. Where will you be?
