How many times have you gone out to eat and the waiter asks “may I take your order please?” All the time I would hope. Then, you respond “I don’t know what I want but I’m really hungry and I want something yummy or fun.” He/she looks at you as if you have three eyes and a horn and says “how about I give you a few more minutes to look over the menu,” and casually walks away. He/she response is completely justified because they need clarity and precision as to what it is you would like to eat. Let’s face it, when you’re hungry, the last thing you want is food that dissatisfies your craving. The waiter wants nothing to do with you not enjoying your food.
Like the waiter, you have to be clear about what it is in life you want. Whining about what you don’t have is such wasted energy but understandably easy to do. It beats the alternative – coming up with a plan! After all that means WORK! The truth is that’s the only way you will accomplish the level of success you want to achieve.
Here are my suggestions on how to get what you want in 2015:
First, STOP complaining!!! What does it accomplish…NOTHING!!!
Implement a plan; hire a coach if you have to.
Move forward with that plan. This may mean doing some research, reading, taking a course, studying, etc.
Take action. Make that plan happen; make it reality. You’ve done the work now make it happen.
