I don't remember where I first heard it... I wish I could give them credit. The constant repetition of this principle in my mind has without exception, steered me in the right direction time and time again.
Navigating the path to success in any area of life comes with challenges. It's never a direct route. It takes personal change and work.
Here are the 3 words (in the correct order) to help find you that success.
Be, Do, Have
There are a few ways of explaining this. Chances are you have heard it thrown around from time to time. In this blog, I'd like to give you my interpretation
In order to BE the person that you want to BE. You begin by BEING that person by
DOING what the people that are already where you want to be, DO, then you will HAVE what they HAVE (What you want)
I simplify it further for my daily reminder.
To be the person I want to be, I must do what people already achieving that do, then I will have what they have.
Not AFTER the fact... Empowering yourself to become that person NOW
This may seem obvious, but unfortunately it's very easy to get it wrong.
Have you ever thought to yourself
"When I lose some weight... Then I will have the energy/confidence to go to the gym or go running?" "When I get results in my online business... Then I will have the confidence to talk to people about it, Advertise, write a Blog, make a Video"
In other words... A thought process like this...
When I get further confirmation that my goal is already a reality, then I will take the appropriate action that (ironically) was required to make it a reality in the first place
You see, this is flawed thinking. In order to BE the person that you want to be. You must DO what these people are doing. Fit people eat healthy and exercise.
In order to be fit, you can't wait to lose weight before you start eating healthy and exercise.
If fit people are eating healthy and exercising... You must do what they do to have what they have. If they are exercising 10 hours a week, you can't expect to get the same result exercising only 3 hours a week.
Successful business people communicate with people.
In one form or another, they communicate their message.
That is how results are achieved. You can't wait until you get results to start communicating.
If that is what is required... You must start now. You must Do, NOW
In order to be the person you want to be, you must do what people that are already there Do, then you will have the same result they have.
It doesn't work the other way round. You can't HAVE, DO and then BE.
A friend of mine recently was talking about his desire to become a professional surfer.
This got me thinking... Why isn't he? He is already a very capable surfer. So how does he go to that next level?
Sports are an interesting one because there are obviously some people
That are freakishly, naturally talented.... But just like anything in life...
There are many people that just work
really hard, take specific actions, and reach success
If my friend wants to be a Pro Surfer... he has to BE a Pro Surfer...
He has to DO what Pro Surfers Do. He must surf for hours everyday. He must consume the
right foods. He must relentlessly train his body, take advice from a professional surf coach.
He must work on his competitive psychology, he must spend everyday living and beathing
surfing. Doing what professional athletes do and then he will have what they have.
The issue lies with the idea that you can take half the action until you get the same result.
That you can surf sometimes.. train sometimes... And get the same results as a professional.
That you can work at your business sometimes... And get the same results as a successful
entrepreneur that works in their business ALL the time.
You must begin to act precisely like you are already where you want to Be.
What would you do? How would you feel? How would you speak? How would you
carry yourself through the day?
Act as if you had already achieved the goals you are setting out to achieve..
What specific actions would you be taking? You must start BEING that NOW.
It's blindly obvious when you think about it. Why would we ever expect the same result if we are not taking the same action?
I catch myself doing this all the time... I look at something I would like to improve my life,
then I think to myself, well, yes... I see what other people that are successful in that area
are doing... but that all seems like a little much...
Maybe if I just try this other method that seems a little easier, less time consuming, It will still work?
NO... it will not work... If you want the same result... You must take the same action
Whatever you want... Whoever you want to be, Identify what people are doing that
are already in that position. Then start doing that.
Not something like that... Not almost that... Exactly That. BE That Person. Obviously I'm not talking about adopting their personality or anything weird... Just take the same actions they are taking. Do what they do and you will have what they have. You will have what you want and you will be who you want to be.
I hope the examples above explain this cannot work the other way around. If you want to be fit. Don't look for shortcuts. Do the exercise, play the sports, BE a fit person. THEN you will be fit. If you want to wealthy financially. Do what wealthy people DO. find a system, stick to it and do as they do. Don't wait for other circumstances to "allow" you to be that. BE that NOW, your life will undoubtedly improve and the results will take care of themselves.
This seems like a very repetitive blog post... However, I am so passionate about this!
The reason being , I know it works. it has worked for me over and over and over.
Whenever you strive to be something more than you are now... It's when you start Being that person... Start doing what people that are already there do, that it actually becomes a reality.
BE, DO, HAVE
