Have you ever been in a situation that you weren’t quite sure about?
Maybe it was starting at a new school or moving to a new town or starting a new job. Walking into a new place where you didn’t anyone. That scary feeling of having to be in a different environment, a new situation. Maybe you felt unsure of yourself. Alone. Uneasy. That feeling of having to put yourself out there and talk to strangers. Or going to a dance or party by yourself. Being self-conscious because you are trying to make new friends. Or that feeling when you like someone but you don’t know if they like you. You aren’t sure where they stand so you are too scared to tell them you love them.
You don’t have that mindset of It Has to Be Done.
Or maybe we are starting a new hobby, a new homework assignment, or a new project at work. We don’t know what we are doing. We have no clue where to begin. We feel unqualified, unprepared, unnerved. We know we have so much to learn and no time to do it. So we feel overwhelmed and insecure. We see a mountain to climb and we only have flip flops. The self doubt starts playing in our heads. We start thinking “maybe I can’t do this, maybe it is too much” And so we shut down. We don’t really try. Sure, we may give it a little bit of effort, but nothing like we could actually do.
We don’t give it our all. We give it our almost.
Here’s the thing. Living life on the sidelines, playing cautious, and not going all the way for it can mean that we miss out on some amazing things. When we aren’t committed to something, we can’t live our lives fully.
We’ve all had times where we didn’t feel sure of something or a situation. So we dip our toes in. We hang back. We don’t want to totally commit. We are cautious. We don’t want to jump all the way in the because we don’t know what could happen. We have a mindset of “okay, I will maybe see if this is something I will like”
Instead of the mindset of trying and seeing, we have to switch our minds to “It Has to Be Done”
When something Has to Be Done, we just do it. We are all in, 100% committed. When something Has to Be Done, nothing can stop us. The self doubt just slips away because we are determined to make it happen.
When something Has to Be Done, we know we will figure out a way even if we don’t see a way.
When we live our lives with this mindset for everything we do, things start to flow. When we decide to go all in, and It Has to Be Done, our life feels more satisfying because we gave it our all. It’s knowing that we didn’t give it everything we had that cause us stress because not living up to our full potential doesn’t feel good. When we know that we could do better than we do, we quiet a part of our souls. And that causes pain.
When we live with the mindset of everything we attempt of it having to be done, life just starts flowing. We feel happy, energized, inspired. When it Has to Be Done it gets done.
