What’s stopping you from doing what you really want to do?

So what’s stopping you from doing what you really want to do?

During a recent coaching call with a client, I posed the question, “Where are you in life today, and where do you see yourself in five years? What does that vision look like to you?”
The person shared that he didn’t want to be so dependent on their business, that he wished he could take an extended amount of time away from the business to do what was important to him.

As we were going through the session, a major realization struck them: “If this is what I truly want, why haven’t I made time for it? Why haven’t I planned for it?”
The reason was because he had all those reasons why it couldn’t happen.
My statement to him was simple: “If all your brain is thinking about is the reasons why you can’t do it, you’ll never make it happen.”

However, there’s a trick to change this dynamic. If you put it in your calendar, it’s now a reality. When faced with the reality of the set schedule, your mind shifts the conversation from “why you can’t” to “what you need to do” in order to make it happen.

This is very critical. We’re all getting stopped by the reasons why we can’t achieve something. If you want to move forward and gain Velocity, have the vision, plan for it, schedule it, and make it a reality. Believe me, once you commit, you’ll find a way to make it work.
