Are You Asking These Two Questions?

 Here are some questions to consider today.  1.  What do you really want to do?2.  What are you doing today to get there? Most people give up what they really want, for what they want “right now.”  So you want to be in shape, be healthy and six pack abs.  That’s what you really want.  But “right now” you want to hit snooze on the alarm clock and sleep in.  You really want to have a successful business and get to see your kids.  But “right now” you want to play fantasy football. Now back to the questions.  What do you really want to do?  What are you doing today to get there? It is REALLY easy to get off track.  The life you have can often get in the way of the life you want.  As I say all of the time, most of the time the answer is simple.  But “simple” is not the same as “easy.”  So how do you stay on track?  I recommend getting people in your life that help you.  Don’t get me wrong.  If you want something to improve or change in your life, it’s your responsibility to make it happen.  But there is nothing wrong with surrounding yourself with people that would help.  It’s a lot like building an organization.  You are the CEO of YOU.  What members do you want on your team that will help you stay on track? Do you need someone to be a drill sergeant?  Some people do.  Occasionally they need reminded that they need to “put in the work” if they want the results. Do you need an encourager?  When you are trying new things, you will likely face some moments of failure.  Remember, if it was easy, everyone would do it.  Sometimes you need that person to tell you how awesome you are.  Do you need a Jimminy Cricket?  If you are like me, sometimes you need someone to remind you why you are doing the work.  “It’s time to go home.  You need to see your family.”  This will help you stay in balance so you can perform your best work. No matter what type of person you need to surround yourself with (and often it’s all of these), get them on the team.  That will allow you to get back out there and start focusing on two very important questions… 1.  What do you really want to do?2.  What are you doing today to get there?
