Difficult vs. Impossible: You get to pick
First, I want to thank you, if you were one of the many people who responded to my blog post on Monday about Father’s day. (You can read it here on my blog below, in case you missed it.)
I got lots of feedback on this post — 90% of it was encouraging, and 10% of the people ripped me a new one. But the good thing about the internet is that it’s like television: if you don’t like what you’re hearing, you can either change the channel or turn it off.
Anyway, this past Tuesday was the day I speak with both my Mavericks Coaching Group and my Mastermind Group (links for information on these groups are at the bottom).
One of the topics that came up was how “difficult” it is, to do certain things.
No kidding. If it was easy, everybody would get to live the dream life, right?
But there’s a huge difference between being “difficult”… and being “impossible.” And unfortunately, most people focus so much on the “difficult” aspect of things, they make it impossible in their own minds.
So here’s a little secret about what you want to focus on when you’re trying to get something done. Focus on the beginning, not the end. Step one, nothing more.
When Warren Buffet started, he focused on making his first investment, not building one of the largest insurance and holding companies in the America.
When Bill Gates started, he focused on developing his operating system, not on building the biggest software company in the world, or on becoming one of the wealthiest people in the world.
When I started, the first thing I focused on was becoming good at my craft. I wanted to be a great copywriter. Then I focused on learning how to make money with this craft. Then how to get a web page up, then how to make products to sell while growing a little list. And so on.
So focus on the beginning. Each individual step is rarely overwhelming, and usually very tangible. And almost nothing is impossible, especially in today’s day and age.
Unless you make it so.
