Don’t Put It Off!
As Susan Jeffries pointed out “Feel the fear and do it anyway”.
I know that is something that you know...and something that you have heard before...but probably it is still an area that improvements can be made in.
Over riding the fear...the minor dread, the feeling of discomfort with certain tasks... pushing yourself to face and do those less than appealing tasks... that is where your magic happens!
In business there is always a job to do that you don’t want to do...it might be handling a stroppy client...one who moans and you just know that when they call you are going to have a battle on your hands or a negotiation that wasn’t planned or justifiable...
Or it might be ringing someone who you owe and couldn’t pay this month...and then actually you are not going to be able to pay all next month and you are avoiding calls from their accounts department...or letters from the collector
Or it might be possibly that of ‘pro-active lead generation’ or telephone calls!
It is not the most sought after use of time...ringing prospects or potential partners and starting a conversation.... Its all very well answering one if they call you...you are probably happy with that! But actually ringing them and having to almost invite yourself around...now that doesn’t feel comfortable!
Well there is magic in your momentum...if you push yourself over that first call hurdle and into the second and third...then you will be massively rewarded! The Universe conspires to give you what you ask for...just ask with action!!
Make the call, ring the contact, physically call on the person or make a de-tour and ‘pop in’. There is a client that you’d like to win...ring them! There is a debt you’d like to resolve...call them. There is a situation that needs sorting out but you always put off...well put it on!
Take action today to build the ‘do it anyway’ muscle...I promise that there is magic in the momentum that you create.
Today as you sit with potentially a couple of hours spare because possibly an appointment was postponed or cancelled use that time to do what you’ve been putting off.
Why not make a quick mental list of 5 tasks that ‘you really should face but don’t want to’ and then push yourself into fronting them?
A very simple but challenging step that marks the difference between winners and also-rans.
So go on, just do it! It’ll turn out to be a tremendously rewarding day!
Have a great day
