How Uncomfortable Are You Willing to Get

Are you starting a business or setting yourself a goal to do something new?

Are you going to treat it like a new years resolution or are you committed to it?

Most people say they want something but they give up really easily…Why is that?

Well the reason is really simple:
While we say that we want something….what we are really thinking is I’ll give this a go for a while and if it works then I’ll do it.

Does that sound insane to anyone else? I’m not pointing fingers at anyone here with that statement because I have done this too.

The idea that I’ll do a little work and see if it becomes massively successful and then i’ll do more work just seems completely backward now. We’ve all heard of overnight successes in the music industry or an actor who nobody knew yesterday is suddenly on every paper this morning.

Do you think that they really became an overnight success by luck…..that somebody spotted their talent and made them a ┬ásuperstar overnight?

What we don’t see with the people who are at the top of their game is the 10 or 15 or even longer in some case of years of work to get to that point where when they have that breakthrough that they can enjoy it a bit more but that only comes after the years of work before.

Do you think any of these people who have put in 15 years of work in a specific industry or doing a specific job and are now earning millions….did it by luck? No chance.

They see the long term gains and that they will get there if they keep at it.

I personally think that the first few months are the crucial parts when starting out doing something new. The reason for this is that you become uncomfortable because you have never done it before and this isn’t where we want to stay.

When I started out online building my business, I remember being so frustrated on so many different occasions because things weren’t going as I had planned and it is difficult to keep doing the work with when setback after setback keep coming up.

I also realised that after a certain amount of time, it gets easier. What I mean by that is that I became more certain that this will work so it meant that everytime something did not go to plan that I looked at it differently.

That didn’t work….How else can I do it?

If you can get past that initial stumbling block of wanting to run because it is uncomfortable…your chances of success get bigger and bigger because the longer you stay with it…..the more the competition gives up so that when you do get to have your business running well…there are fewer people there so you can make more money.

Stick with it. Do the work and know that it will pay off. (That advice is for me too. )

Pushing the Boundaries – Liam Kearney

Pushing the boundaries can be a scary thing from my experience.

Not scary as in terrifying but scary as in uncomfortable.

Knowing what I have to do and doing it are two different things but I am starting to see that it is tremendously satisfying every time that I do something that I know I need to do but don’t really want to do.

When I want to do something new something generally crops up to make me ask myself if I really want to do this.

Some of my more recent examples are around the Landmark Forum advanced course and signing up for an ultra marathon.

The Landmark Forum Advanced Course:

I did the landmark forum at the end of February this year and found it mind blowing in the good sense. I absolutely loved it and am thoroughly enjoying the seminar series for the last 9-10 weeks.

I had signed up to do the advanced course in Dublin in September and was really looking forward to it but lately I had been getting quite frustrated as I wanted to do it sooner than that. I knew that it was on in London in June and had been looking in to it to see if I could change to do it then.

There was no problem with transferring to the course next month but immediately I started coming up with all these excuses and reasons for why I should not do it.

  • It will be more expensive
  • I can’t really afford it
  • It’s a waste of money
  • I’d have to pay for flights
  • I’d have to get time off work
  • I’d be using holiday time for a course
  • I’d be putting out friends by asking to stay with them or it will cost more for accomodation

All of these things came up.

The other thing around my fitness was that I did not have a goal and had not signed up or committed to anything so therefore I was not very enthusiastic about training for anything.

So Saturday came around and I decided that I needed to commit to these things to actually make progress towards what I want to do but I was still uncomfortable around it.

So what happened?

Well I just signed up for them anyway. I am doing the Longford Ultra Marathon in August on the 24th and I am flying to London on the 19th June for the Landmark Advanced course.

When I push the boundaries, I do not enjoy it at the time but I do realise that it is necessary to get me where I want to go.

You get to choose whether you listen to those doubts or whether you just take action anyway.

I’m really looking forward to the Landmark advanced course and the ultra marathon.

It’s time to start some traianing.
