I’ve been realising more and more that the key ingredient to success is slugging it out despite desperately not wanting to.
Looking at how badly you don’t want to do something on your to do list, and thinking how awful it will be, then diving head first in and just doing it.
Thinking of all the excuses you have, setting fire to that list (figuratively or literally) and doing it.
Considering all the ways you could palm it off and then just getting it done.
And suddenly, when you do it – it’s done.
The weight lifts off, the fear melts away, your mind clears and your heart sings a little. Your focus narrows, your motivation soars and your joy rises.
It’s a special kind of magic because you can draw on it everyday.
Just do it.
