‘Tis a well known fact to those I chat with regularly that Rahul Mookerjee doesn’t just dislike the word “work”.
In fact, I abhor the word – and this seemingly strange dislike is growing day by day, hehe.
Now, merely saying this to the average person causes him/her to drop what they’re doing and look at me as if I’m batshit nuts.
“What? How can you say this? We all need to work to survive!”
“Work is what makes me happy! ”
“Work is what brings in the moolah! Keeps the wolves from the table!”
And so forth.
Now, all of this is true to a degree, especially if you’re working “for someone else”, or an organization, or whatever.
But to me, work conjures up images of “8-5” – traffic snarlups, annoying bosses, over-expectant companies – and so forth.
I’m sure y’all know what I’m talking about, eh?
The GRIND, in other words – and thats NOT a way I prefer to live my life by.
Amazingly enough, although people do NOT need to live their lives as if they were being put through a grinder, that’s precisely what they do both on a conscious and sub conscious level.
I’d much rather use the terms “action”. Or “practice”, perhaps, if we’re talking physical activities or exercise. Or even better – inspired action. Anything BUT work.
To be honest, when I put out my products – or do up these emails – the LAST thing it feels like to me is work.
It’s a PASSION – it’s something that is bubbling inside of me – that I want to share with YOU – and THAT, my friend is the way I’d like to live my life – doing something I enjoy as opposed to the “run of the mill” 9-5 jobs etc.
I mentioned this to my wife the other day, and the first comment she made was this – “Well, naturally you’re doing well! You’re hard at work all day!”
Huh??Work?? was what I responded.
“It don’t feel like work to me, honey! Not even the extended periods of time I put in for my fitness products or other novels – – NONE of it feels like work!”
My modus operandi is simple, and is something I’ve been sharing with y’all for ages now.
I visualize – go into the “Theater of my Mind” , and get the GOOD feelings going.
And then I just WRITE – trusting my subconscious to give me the material it needs, and it’s never failed me even once. If anything, it’s always “under promised” and “over delivered”, hehe.
And believe me, my friend – YOU too can do the same thing if you so choose – and believe in what I’m saying and my methods.
Research any successful person over the ages, and you’ll find a person that doesn’t think of his or her “work” as work – as well as a person that visualizes regularly.
This is where most people fail. Well, two areas actually …
One being that they dismiss the visualization part (which to me is the MOST important part) as being “bunk” or “esoteric stuff and nothing else”, and so forth.
Big, big mistake!
And the #2 mistake I see is that a lot of folks expect the “tasks to take care of themselves” once they visualize.
No they won’t!
As Dr. Maltz correctly noted in Pyscho Cybernetics, and as ALL of the other writers I refer to have – – “visualizing doesnt divest you of the actual effort required to reach said goals.”
You still have to take ACTION – it just becomes that much easier to do, both in terms of contacts and the action itself if you visualize correctly.
So in terms of fitness, perhaps you’ve visualized yourself getting fit the way I tell you to. Perhaps you’ve followed my tips of “seeing yourself the way you want to be” while you workout.
And you’ve arrived at this page/email.
Them pushups still need to be done, my friend. You still need to figure out the nuances of the BEST darn exercise ever.
You still need to do the squats – or pull-ups – or whatever it is that you’re doing.
It’s NOT going to take care of itself!! THAT is the key thing to remember here – is that while it’s about inspired action – you still need to take that action.
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve watched people come up with great ideas, and then do nothing but procrastinate for various reasons – which is something I really cant wrap my brain around!
Anyway, that’s it for now. I’ll write more on this later. For now though, remember to pound out a 0 Excuses workout after you read this – or sometimes during the day – – and remember that as Twain said, “nodding the head ain’t gonna rock the boat”.
Only YOU, my friend can rock that boat!
P.S. – And while I see a lot of y’all right now (yes, I used the term “see” for a reason!) nodding your heads in agreement, the truth is that “nodding the head” won’t by itself accomplish your fitness goals. ACTION will – and the first step on that road is to order the 0 Excuses Fitness System right here – – http://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/
