In regard to my songwriting, I’ve learned to take aggressive action and to go get what I want. I’ve seen how much doing so can change my life. Even so, I haven’t transferred that over to every area of my life. But I wanted it bad enough that I left my family and friends behind, I left my country (which anyone knows me in person, knows how badly I love Iran), and moved to the other end of the world to peruse my dream of being an international songwriter and producer!
I really believe that there are not many things in life that we can’t do if we want to do it badly enough. It’s the desire that holds us back at times. We have conflicting desires. And we want something else just a little bit more. Or we want it all. That one’s not realistic.
So, I would propose this idea to you. Pick ONE goal for the remainder of 2020. Getting a cut? Losing weight? Getting a promotion? What is most important to you? Don’t make a big long list. Those are competing goals. Just choose one.
Now, imagine that you focus on that one goal for one year. You do EVERYTHING in your power to make that happen. You put all of your other goals on the back burner until you reach that one goal. You are relentless in the pursuit of that one thing. You spend the rest of this year doing as much as you can each day to reach that goal. What do you think would happen? I predict you would reach your goal. That’s the way it has played out in my life. When I try to get everything I want at once, I get frustrated. I lose my focus. And I usually wind up accomplishing very little. When I focus on ONE thing until I do it, I usually get there – or I get very close.
So, don’t make excuses. Define what you want. And go for it. You can do this!! And now that I’ve put it out there, I’m hoping I can report that I’m ten kilos lighter and wearing a six pack by the end of the year.
