It ain't what you do it's the way that you do it.
I know it's a song and actually it sort of makes a lot of sense.
What's the point in doing something, anything at all if your mind isn't right?
I talk a lot about mindset and this is a reminder that your mindset is the creator of your actions.
So it's not the actions that need to change first, it's your mind.
You see, I hear a lot of 'shoulds' and 'have to's' in my office and here's a novel idea for you; Unless someone is holding an ak47 to your head you don't actually have to or should do, anything.
It's all about choices.
Making the choice to do something in the right mind is where it's all at. It's the start of everything good.
Let's take an example so it's super clear. Let's say it's your cousins birthday and the family is going and there is someone there you don't get a long with.
You'll likely be saying to yourself 'I don't want to go but I have to'. Unhelpful to the point where you may not even go to the party. This equals the wrong actions and in turn the wrong mindset.
The truth is you actually do want to go to the party.
Because your family is there.
Because it's a celebration and life is short.
Because your family have invited you and want you there.
Because you're not a party pooper...
Catch my drift?
So you see it ain't what you do it's how you think about it and in turn it's the way that you do it.
With a little smile on your face because you are in control of your mind and you are one step ahead of the rest because of it.
Maybe they should change the song....
