What is your BURNING DESIRE?!!
Why do you do what you do?
Is it in alignment with your “WHY”?
In other words, do you get fired up when you think about your “why?”
What is your “why” and why do I keep putting it in quotation marks?
Your “WHY” is like, WHY are you doing this? Or why did you get into this?
For example, Why do you want to start your own business?
Many people respond with, “I want more FREEDOM. I want TIME FREEDOM. I want FINANCIAL FREEDOM.
Those answers sound good, but what do they REALLY MEAN?
Why do you want time/money freedom, what will that do for you?
“Well, then I won’t have to punch a clock and spend my time building someone else’s business.”
Ok, why is that important to you?
“Well, then I can have more time to spend with my family and friends and not have to always stress about money.”
Ok, now we’re getting somewhere…
“Ok, so if you built your own business you could have more time and money to spend with your family and friends?”
“YES! I would like to give back to my church/school/community/cause because it is really important to me?”
Ok, so you started this business to be able to have more time, money and time/money freedom so you could spend more time with your family and friends, not stress about money and be able to give back to your favorite ____?”
Does that get you excited to think about?
Do you feel a BURNING DESIRE to get it?
Are you going to keep after it even when everybody tells you you are crazy and that it will never work and that you are wasting your time and money and energy?
Are you going to keep after it even when it costs more than you thought, takes longer than you thought, is harder than you thought, and it kicks you to the ground and stomps on you a few times?
How bad do you want it?!
“Want it? Well, I want it, but you know, I still have to go to work at my J.O.B. and I have to take care of the kids, and pay taxes, and wash my car, and take the dog to the vet…”
So maybe, you’re COMFORTABLE where you already are and you don’t really want it that bad after all?
NO! I REALLY WANT IT!
THEN DO IT!
NOT ONCE! NOT TWICE! BUT AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN!
Do you want it THAT BAD?
DO YOU HAVE A BURNING DESIRE FOR IT?!!!
“Crazy Maisie” did!
Everyone in town told her she was crazy when she decided that she would raise money for her community to get a swimming pool by collecting and recycling cans!
She had kids but no pool to go swim at. So what did she do? She came up with a simple plan: collect aluminum cans, recycle them for money, save the money for a swimming pool.
CRAZY RIGHT?! WHO DOES THAT?!!!
SHE DID FOR NOT A FEW DAYS, or months or years…
SHE DID IT FOR THREE DECADES!!!
And now, thanks to her vision and BURNING DESIRE her AND HER WHOLE COMMUNITY have a swimming pool!
Now she is known as “AMAZING MAISIE!”

How bad do you want it friend?
Don’t tell me. Goodness knows people tell me all day how bad they want it. And you know what? I want to believe them, in fact, I usually do believe them. Because they believe it for a moment, until it gets hard that is.
Once the going gets rough, most leave. They quit. They realize that they are already comfortable and why bother.
So, don’t tell me how bad you want it…SHOW ME. But don’t even do that. JUST DO IT.
Yeah, Nike said that, but they weren’t the first. And they won’t be the last.
As long as there are coaches like me that couldn’t care less about excuses, we will say: JUST DO IT!
Don’t tell me about how you will do it, just do it!
Get after it!
Make it happen!
Take MASSIVE ACTION!
Discover your BURNING DESIRE and go after it!
And until next time my friend…BE FLOWING!!!
