Years ago, I actually hired a firm to help with social media. They posted those stupid inspirational quoteboard pictures, saying things like “If you dream it, you can do it.” Or:
When I logged on and saw that picture, I almost threw my laptop out of my window. Can you imagine me ever saying anything like that? After I explained that I would rather tie my own neck to an elephant’s tail and let myself get dragged for miles along a rocky desert, they continued posting sayings more appropriate for a life coach convention. I fired them.
Inspiration matters, but there’s more to life than inspiration.
This is why you have so many people who say they want “freedom” or “to share their gift with the world,” but instead of taking specific steps to get those things, they become “inspiration junkies,” the people who constantly seek out inspirational videos and sayings — but never actually DO anything.
NOT you guys. If I ever catch one of you wearing 5 scarves and “manifesting your dreams” or “letting your inner spirit shine,” we’re through.
Let’s have some real talk about changing your life.
For example, if you’re in $50K of debt, it’s pointless to read books about being a millionaire. Read how to get out of debt.
My worthless inspirational quoteboards were “fun” for people to look at — but did anyone take action? NO!
I want you to take action FIRST.
Tomorrow, I’ll show you how to avoid the inspiration trap.
But today, tell me one area of your life where you want to accomplish something big — career, start a business, build confidence, social — but you’re stuck.
