(Warning…if you’re offended by the word “shit” you might want to pass on this post! : )
One of the greatest challenges to getting to where you want to be is having to do all the sh*t you hate along the way!
Sometimes knowing we’re going to have to do some things we hate can be a deal breaker and cause us to give up on our efforts before we really get started.
The shit I’m hating right now is exercising! But I realize that it is a necessity if I’m going to accomplish my long-term personal and professional goals.
So here are 10 tips to help you do the shit that you hate!
- Have a Great Motivator!
Your “great motivator” should be that thing that you love way more than you hate the thing you have to do to get to it!
As an entrepreneur that writes, teaches and speaks on how to believe in yourself, I have to get ready. I have to prepare myself for long nights, long flights and hard work. I understand that in order to get to the level of success I aspire to, I have to be strong, healthy and look good while I’m at it! THIS is my great motivator and living long and feeling good are pretty great motivators too!
- Take the road of the absolute least resistance!
Do the absolute least you can do and still be effective. Make sure that you are spending the least amount of money, time and effort and, still effectively meet the goal!
For example, I walk for exercise. It’s both free and effective. I have to spend a little more time at it than I really want to but I’ve figured out a way to even make that bearable, I’ll share that with you later!
The last thing I want to do is spend money to do something I hate. And besides, for me the idea of having to leave my house and go to a crowded gym and jump up and down for an hour in a hot room full of women does not a good time make!
