Be the most dependable person you know
How many people can you count on in your life right now? If you knew that you had to draw, they would drop everything and anything to do and be there for you. Are you lucky enough to have someone like that in your life. I know that I am, I can instantly name, Jenny, Lisa, John. Of course my kids because they love me, and even some of my students because they proved it to me might my inner circle so I am blessed and lucky to have that in my life. Now, and are you, and if you’re not, then you get to be the first person to be that for someone else. That’s what’s really cool about this concept so being dependable, what does that even look like, what is being dependable look like. Well it starts with yourself, actually it starts with you keeping your word to you. You doing the things that you said that you’re going to do for yourself so I want you to stop and think about that right now, where areas in your life, or you’re not are you not doing what you said you would do for you. It could be taking time to exercise like you’d be taken time to spend with your family, it could be taken time to have a date night with your wife. It could be setting aside time to spend with your friends right, we’re getting busier and busier so we need to make sure maybe we’re not taking that time, maybe you’re not doing what you want to do physically or with your nutrition right there are all kinds of areas where we technically and typically do not keep our words to ourselves. And so that is where you need to start, part of it for me is, is doing these broadcasts, because I want you, whoever you are in the world that gets to see this and gets to benefit from this, to know that I am going to be here every Wednesday at nine o’clock, ish today was an ish day, but I’m going to be here helping you get some new concepts give some new ideas and find new strategies and tools to make you motivated and help you get excited about your life. Okay, so that’s step one. Look at you. Are you keeping your word to yourself. And then, secondly, hold yourself accountable for what you say you’re going to do. Now this becomes more important because I know a lot of people will say yes to things, and agree to things and say, yeah, yeah, I’ll be there. And then they’ll make an excuse at the end so I want you to change how you answer those questions in your life now, to be the most dependable people person that people know, then you’re going to have to start being honest with them, we talked about this in our workshops on our workshops on taking taking action and keep winning. We go over these concepts a little bit more, but it changes your relationship to how willing you are to say you will or will not be at something, because if you know that if you say that you’re going to be there, you’re going to show up. Do you think you’re going to say yes to everything that you say yes to No, I would venture to say no. If you know that you’re going to create this new standard, create this new habit of holding yourself accountable to doing things, then it’s going to change the relationship to that. Alright, so when you say, tell someone, you’re going to do something, know that you’re going to do it. Know that you’re going to make sure that that happens.
The trick with this motivational factor is you can’t depend on anyone else to push you, you have to you have to in this moment say I’m going to become that person, and then hold yourself accountable to be that person. And I warn you, it’s not, it’s not. It’s simple but not easy. That’s the that is the phrase, because like days like today. COVID has hit our family. And so we’ve had to make some changes to how we’re training in the school. And so I’ve committed to my students that we will train virtually but guess what, how my instructors have COVID. And so teaching class even virtually is going to be a challenge, but I told him that I would so I will be there ready for them to train virtually this evening for class, right, simple but not easy. Okay, so keep your word say things that you mean do things that you mean, we live it, we call it a no excuse I’m in the martial arts school. We live in a no excuse zone. Right. Another favorite quarter bars is Yoda. You know, there is no try. You’re either gonna do it or you’re not. That’s not me notice quote but that’s how we interpret it just, just so you know. So make sure you’re living in the no excuse. So, take responsibility for those actions. When you start to behave this way. A few things are going to happen, you’re going to feel better about yourself, you’re going to feel really good about yourself, you’re going to know that you’re doing the things that you need to do and then other people are going to start perceiving you differently, they’re gonna start seeing you as a person that they can count on. And do you think people want to be around people they can count on or not. Yeah, I want to be around the people that I can count on. I like having them around, I like knowing that they’re in my corner, and you get to be that person for someone else. Right, and so that’s where that comes in. So, be to be dependable with yourself. Only say things yes to things you know that you can actually commit to and live, live up to your commitments and over deliver. Like, it all goes back to treating people the way that you want to be treated, and every situation if you just treat someone like you would want it delivered, you’re never going to go wrong. Right, you’re never going to go wrong with that. So, that is this motivation moment. It’s gonna go it’s gonna be amazing. I want you to try it. I want you to try it today. I want you to think about, and I want you to try it today with yourself. Today with yourself, I want you to pick an area that you haven’t been keeping your word to yourself. And then I want you to start today, not tomorrow, next week, next Friday. Today I want to make sure that you do that thing for yourself whatever it is, whatever that thing is. And I want you to commit to doing it for a week to next Wednesday to. And then I want you to tell me how it feels. I want you to message me and tell you. Tell me how it feels. So that is the assignment from today’s motivation, don’t be the most dependable person, you know, hold yourself accountable. Your family, your colleagues, customers, they know they know, need to know that they can depend on you, and do this and see what happens. I can’t wait to see what happens for you.
