HOW TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF TO DO ANYTHING
We have all been through it: moments when you KNOW you should do something but you just DON’T DO IT. That’s one of the main difference between people that get shit done and people that get NOTHING done.
The ability to to take action is what matters in the end. The ability to put yourself in a proactive state of mind is the most important skill you can learn if you want to be successful in life.
Forget about school. School won’t lead you anywhere if you don’t have that skill. Forget about starting a business. You will fail in your business if you don’t have the ability to take action.
Watch the video below:
What I want to talk about today is the gun to your head mindset. The gun to your head mindset is a state of mind of ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY. If I pointed a gun to your head and told you that you have 30 minutes to find someone to give you $5, you would find a way to do it…
You would literally ask anybody around you for the goddamn $5 no matter what! If I pointed a gun to your head and said that you have 24 hours to come up with a step-by-step plan to make money online, YOU WOULD find a way to find a step-by-step method, trust me.
With a gun to your head, you become desperate and you are ready to do WHATEVER IT TAKES, literally. With a gun to your head, you don’t have any excuses. It puts you in a state of absolute certainty and you are ready to do ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING.
Imagine that your house is on fire and all of your family is inside. Would you go save them? You bet you would! Even though this is highly dangerous, you just wouldn’t care and you would just do it
Are you someone that is afraid of public speaking? If I put a gun to your head and told you that you have to speak in front of 500 people, trust me, you would do it.
Actually, chances are high that you would not even be stressed at all as you do it. It probably would be the opposite, you would feel relieved as you do it….
The gun to your head mindset is about taking action NO MATTER WHAT. It’s about being in a state of absolute certainty in which you can accomplish absolutely anything.
People that are not successful in life have a mindset that’s the complete opposite. They just don’t have leverage. All they do is avoid what they have to do and find excuses…. “Oh no….I can’t beg for money to random people….that would be way to weird” or “oh no….I can’t find a step-by-step system to make money on the internet….this making money on the internet is a scam…and I don’t really have the time to be honest”…..Excuses, Excuses, Excuses….Avoidance, Avoidance, Avoidance.
This mindset will lead you to a shitty life full of regrets, trust me….You will wake up one day and you’ll realize that you lived your life only to about 10% of its potential…
Think of all the successful people in this world and you will find ONE THING they all have in common: The ability to take action….the ability to puts themselves in a state of mind of absolute certainty and take massive action.
This is what the gun to your head mindset is all about. With a gun to your head, you don’t have time to find excuses. With a gun to your head, you find solutions no matter what.
Look, you have to realize this: people that are highly successful are not smarter than you….They are just better at putting themselves in a state of certainty and therefore they take more action and have more success.
We are in 2016. You can find LITERALLY ANYTHING on the internet. Most people not making money on the internet are full of excuses like : I don’t know what to do, i’m not a technical guy, I don’t know how to build a website, I don’t know anything about SEO….
Look, this is bullshit…The only fucking thing you have to do is to go on Youtube and type : How to make money on the internet and you will LITERALLY FIND HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of videos on how to make money online….
Don’t know how to build a website? Just go on Youtube and type: How to build a website and that’s it! Someone will now teach you how to do it.
You can literally find almost ANYTHING on the internet these days. ALL you need to know to become highly successful is ALREADY THERE all around you but you are trapped in your shitty mindset with all of your excuses.
There are two things that will push you to take action: Inspiration or desperation. When someone inspire you, it can push you to take action because you know that if you do the same thing, you will get the same result. This is why reading biographies are so inspiring. These successful people gives you a new perspective on life. You start to think like them and therefore you start to get the same results.
The other thing that can push you to take action is desperation. Have you ever hit a point in your life where you just said to yourself : I’m sick of this! And you completely changed your life? It might be that you got tired of smoking and you suddenly quit, it could be that you got tired of working for a shitty salary and you finally decided to start a business, it could be that you got tired of being out of shape and you suddenly decided to eat healthy food and join the gym….
Each one of us got a moment like this in our life. It is in these moment of desperation that we fully take control of our life. It is in these moment of desperation that we become free. It is only when you lose everything that you realize that you have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain…
This is the gun to your head mindset. A state of absolute desperation in which you put yourself in a state of absolute certainty and you achieve what you are trying to achieve NO MATTER WHAT.
Can you imagine if you lived the rest of your life like this? Can you imagine the impact it would have on your life? Never again would you find these excuses for not taking action. You would just EXECUTE like your life depends on it. All the highly successful people are extremely good at this. They have the ability to put themselves in a peak state of mind that make them achieve whatever they are trying to do.
Never forget to live your life as if you had a gun to your head because actually, life is quite short and your life is ending one minute at the time so make sure to live without any regrets…
