"If it's gonna' be...it's up to me."

 

November 6, 2010...

I had a conversation recently with somebody about "why people choose not to focus on personal development." In our conversation, we covered why people shy away from putting in the work necessary to really create the sort of life they desire.

Before I mention some of our conclusions (in brief), let me throw a few rhetorical questions out there:

1. True or false: Do most people want to be happy?

2. True or false: Do most people desire to have cash in the bank?

3. True or false: Do most people desire to look good physically?

4. True or false: Do most people desire great relationships?

5. True or false: Do most people desire awesome jobs?

By a VERY high percentage, the answers are most certainly obvious.

Then back to the question: "Why do people not take the action to do what it takes to succeed?"

1. Because it's hard work.

2. Because they feel powerless that they can really make a difference.

3. Because they have limiting beliefs and believe "change is not possible."

4. Because they fail to put in the time necessary to create change.

5. Because they just choose to accept the status quo of their life.

Life can be so much more rewarding. We all want it, but few get it. If you truly do want it, sooner or later a certain cold hard truth needs to be acknowledged:

"If it's gonna' be...it's up to me."
