You’re Never Going to Feel Like It

At some point, we all bought into this lie that you’ve got to feel ready in order to change.

That at some point, you are going to have the courage and the confidence to change–and, frankly, that’s it’s total bullsh*t.

You may be reading this right now and you have these incredible ideas and what you think is missing is motivation.

That’s not true.


Because the way that our minds are wired and the fact about human beings is that we are not designed to do things that are uncomfortable or scary or difficult.

Our brains are designed to protect us from those things, because our brains are trying to keep us alive. Your brain is wired to stop you at all cost from doing anything that might hurt you.

In order to change, in order to build a business, in order to be the best parent, in order to be the best spouse–to do all those things that you know you want to do with your life–you are going to have to do things that are difficult, uncertain, or scary.

Which sets up this problem for all of us: YOU ARE NEVER GOING TO FEEL LIKE IT.

If motivation is garbage, how can you change?

Watch this video interview between myself and Tom Bilyeu, the host of Impact Theory. This video has over a million views and shares the only way you can change–one small decision at a time.

You are one decision away from a different life. In just one moment, you can act in a way that starts to shift your life. Your life comes down to your decisions and if you change your decisions you will change everything.
