TIRED, OVER IT, CAN’T GET MOTIVATED? Wake UP!! It’s Only Your LIFE!
That fear, that panic, that sense of anxiety or overwhelm you feel so much of the time, THAT IS THE FEELING OF KNOWING YOU’RE NOT GOING ALL IN.
It really doesn’t matter if you’re tired or can’t seem to get your ass into gear the way you want to. Is that an excuse for not taking action on creating your LIFE?
Here’s the secret they don’t tell you in entrepreneur school:
You can’t press pause! Life is gonna keep on ticking by whether YOU actively do something about it or not. So if you’re NOT actively pressing play, taking action, DIRECTING your life to where you want it to go, then guess what?
You’re STILL creating your life.
It’s just that you’re creating a life made up of moments of saying no, I can’t, not yet, not quite, I’m not ready, not fully, I don’t WANNA, and humph!
Oh, and of course whatever shit it is that you’re doing instead.
I mean sure, I get how exciting it might be to look back on a life filled with playing Facebook games and scrolling social media searching for the meaning of life, a life filled with WAITING to be ready, but don’t you think it might just be a teensy tiny bit more fulfilling to actually use your life like you give a damn?
You think you feel burnt out, tired, unmotivated and frequently worried because you need to slow down, breathe, evaluate, but NO, what you need to do is wake up, speed up, and live.
And acknowledge — just admit it! — that living a life out of accordance with your own true values and beliefs is just flat out never going to do it for you.
No matter what the on the surface of it accomplishments might be.
Let me tell you:
When you are doing work you love (and even when it’s not yet making you money) you wake up feeling motivated, excited, energised, and raring to go, even if you’ve only had a few hours sleep.
Same is true for when you’re working on projects or new deals that MEAN something to you, that connect directly to your big dreams and desires. All of a sudden it doesn’t matter how out of reach or even impossible they may seem, you’re lit up from within with a burning fuel to go make them happen somehow someway and you know you WILL!
People wonder to me all the time how it is I stay up so late, get up so early, pack so much in, and create so much freaking CONTENT, but honestly it’s a very very simple formula:
I give my energy and attention to stuff that thrills and excites me. Stuff that I can’t NOT get out bed for, that I dream about, breathe about, stuff I actually WANT TO LIVE FOR.
(Side note: Doesn’t it just make sense … to fill your time with stuff you WANT to live for??!)
And I do my damn best to avoid like the plague anything that doesn’t get me pumped up and focused like a motherfucker.
So I may well pack an insane amount of stuff into my every living breathing day, but let me tell you some shit I don’t give a fuck about and very rarely if EVER spend my time or energy on:
Wait, no need to make a list –
ANYTHING I DON’T ACTUALLY FIND AWESOME.
I just flat out don’t do it, won’t do it, won’t show up, won’t get back to you, don’t care.
This means that I at times appear to be a heartless, disorganised, chaotic, messy bitch, but you know what:
I’m putting first things first.
I know what matters to me, and I will move the entire fucking world in order to make it happen.
Do you know what matters to you?
Do you KNOW what putting first things first would look like?
Is there ANYTHING in your life right now, that you’re actively involved with, that has you waking up at 4am like a kid on Christmas morning even if you didn’t make it to bed till 2am ’cause you just couldn’t slow your eager mind thinking about it, working on it, creating it??!
If you don’t have at least a good HANDFUL of things like this here’s a tip:
Stop fucking worrying about what you need to do right now to keep the clock ticking and ‘be okay’ or even get ahead. That clock will keep on ticking for you and YOU WILL BE OKAY if you don’t do all the shit you think you need to do.
But you will NOT be okay if you let your entire life pass by and realise you never really stepped up and had a crack at actually living it all out.
Every single entrepreneur, leader, high-achieving motherfucker I know who actually has consistent success in their lives, who always seems to spring right back, bigger bolder and faster from any setback, who seems to be ON 24/7, who is also typically in great shape and basically HAS IT ALL, has one thing in common:
Speak to them and they are fucking EXCITED about life.
They’re doing stuff that thrills them.
They’re chasing their TRUE dreams.
They’re stepping DAILY out on that ledge and then they’re jumping the fuck off with no regard to what’s beneath or how they’ll figure it out but they KNOW THAT THEY WILL.
Okay that was four things in common, but the one thing is this:
They’re waking up each day and living like they give a fuck.
And here is what this comes down to for you:
Nobody CARES if you’re tired, unmotivated, not ready, not sure.
The world, God, the Universe, whatever you’re praying to is not going to grant you the successes nor even the MOTIVATION you dream of.
YOU are responsible for being motivated.
YOU are responsible for being inspired.
YOU are responsible for creating energy within.
YOU and ONLY you are responsible for stepping up your game and living a life on purpose and doing what it TAKES to make it count and to have a damn good time doing it along the way.
It’s time for a change.
If you consider yourself an entrepreneur, a high-achiever, a go-getter, someone who is willing to take on the world and sculpt it just so, then maybe you should start acting like it.
EVERYTHING you really want, can be yours today.
The excitement, energy, satisfaction, IMMENSE and basically unending motivation you want to feel each day, all of that is already there inside of you, waiting.
So you can choose to listen to your own bullshit, once again today, about why you can’t or don’t wanna.
Or you can wake up today and realise that this is your life. You are in charge of it. And it’s time to start living like you know you’re alive, and fuck the rules or what anybody has to say about it.
You have the power of choice to CHANGE, but one day?
Stop waiting for that day.
After all –
Life is Now. Press Play.
