How? You just Do it!

I often enjoy reading through others journey looking for hints that may help my own. Recently I found the burning questions from a gentleman disturbing. I can’t recall exactly what the questions were, but they were along the lines of “how do I wake up early? How do I go workout? How do I such and such?

My answer was a very loud,
“You just do it!”

It made perfect sense to me and at the moment I couldn’t understand his questions.

Who wants to be the type of person who isn’t honest with themselves?

I am careful of what I say I’ll do, because I’ll do it. Regardless of how much it hurts.

Nevertheless, the longer I pondered on it, the more I realize that I haven’t always been this way.

Sure I’ve been extremely honest with myself for a very long time. Sure my word means everything to me. However, I didn’t always go for the challenge of changes.

When I finally did decide on becoming more disciplined in life, it came in increments. One step at a time. I made sure my footing was good before taking on the next challenge.

The discipline on consistently progressing has built the character and matter of fact attitude of the man who says “You just do it!”

I believe we can and probably have lied to all those around us to some extent. Heck, I believe we lied to ourselves for longer than we like to admit.

But at some point in our lives we must take responsibility and act as if maturity really is a thing that hopefully comes with some wisdom.

At my tender  age of 42, I like to believe that I am not the kind of person who isn’t honest with myself. If I want to do something, I simply tell myself that I am going to do that. Better yet, I’ll tell a loved one just to solidify the commitment and go out and do it.

By now, I realize that the only things that are impossible are those thing I tell myself I can’t do.

I am very careful with my self talk.

Time alone hasn’t gotten me here. Practice, failure, hurt, lessons and much pain and suffering has. Let’s summarize it as wisdom 

Moral of the story, be honest with yourself, watch your self talk and live a life with boundaries but no limits.

We can talk ourselves out of anything really fast.

The problem with excuses is that they’re usually valid

Nevertheless, they are just that, excuses

Go out and get some 🙂

  1. Good post, Jimmy. That’s right, simply commit and hold yourself accountable. Moreover, don’t be afraid to help you stay accountable if that’s what it takes until you build the necessary confidence and discipline.
