The things you look back on most proudly had an element of "hard" to them. You had to do some things you didn't always feel like doing. You had to feel some things you didn't want to feel.⁠ ⁠ The thing is, the whole reason you did the thing was because you wanted to feel something.⁠ ⁠ Feelings are a big driver, right? After all, they are why we do or don't do anything.⁠ ⁠ Having your feelings dictate how you spend your days might be working well for you but what if it's not?⁠ ⁠ What if you're tired of feeling stuck. You've tried to make changes but lost your motivation, became afraid of taking the next step, or started to feel confused about what steps to take? You started to second guess yourself. So you just stopped.⁠ ⁠ You'll want someone to give you a plan thinking that a tidy list of lots of busy action steps will help you remain motivated, act in spite of your fear, and feel confident in the steps to take. ⁠ ⁠ But you'll get the plan and still lose motivation, become afraid of taking the next step, or start to feel confused. You'll start to second guess yourself and the plan. So you'll stop.⁠ ⁠ Washing the car doesn't fix the engine. You have to lift the hood and work on what's actually not working.⁠ ⁠ You will still need a plan but it's not necessarily the action plan you have in mind. It will involve things to practice every day to start shifting how you see things, how you react to things, how you feel things...how you behave. You'll need to follow this plan, not your mood for a while.⁠ ⁠ Then, you'll believe in the actions you're taking, you'll take them even when you feel afraid, even when you don't feel motivated, you'll stop hiding behind confusion. You won't stop.⁠ ⁠ But you'll need to do things--especially at first that you won't feel like doing. This is what it takes. ⁠ ⁠ I'll teach you how.⁠ ⁠ I'm currently offering free 60-minute calls to see if this is something you're ready for so you can look back and say you did it. You did the hard things.⁠ ⁠
