I’ve always followed a simple formula whenever I’ve set out to achieve something in my life.
Little or big achievements, the formula doesn’t change.
Be x Do = Have.
If you want something in your life (Have), then you must have the right attitude, skills & beliefs (Be) and roll your sleeves up to do the work (Do!).
Let’s break it down briefly…
BE…Am I being the right person to achieve this goal? Am I being prepared for training, being disciplined and being diligent in knowing what I have to do next and not leaving things to chance.
DO…Am I doing the right type of work for this goal? If you are training for a marathon, make sure you are running! Running smart, doing intervals, with a few steady distances thrown in and all with the “progressive overload” principle applied.
HAVE… Is the result of the Be x Do. Time and time again when I hit a roadblock with my HAVE, something that’s frustrating or holding me back or maybe thrown me off path, I sit down and have a look at this formula.
Things are happening slower than what I’d like… Do I just need to do more work? Or am I skimping on the work and coming up with a whole lot of reasons why it can’t be done, from a lack of belief? Maybe, something pops up and gets in the way, which I wasn’t expecting…..
Do I need to learn a new skill to overcome this? Or maybe I just need to adjust my attitude towards the unexpected?
It’s a formula.
So simple and so powerful.
When you break down your formula and apply it to your goals you’ll be amazed at what you learn about yourself.
It can be totally confronting and enlightening all at the same time.
So be prepared with an open mind and excuses parked outside of it.
Be x Do = Have.
Who’d ever think that algebra would be useful?!
