I don’t believe in magic words.
I think many of us are looking for those perfectly inspiring words that’ll make us more courageous, more confident, more of who we really are.
However, a few months ago someone said something to me that totally rocked my world.
He said: “Sean, the reason you don’t have what you want is because you’re not committed to it.”
The truth can sting a bit.
He was right. I’d been in an off-and-on relationship with what I wanted, but had yet to put a ring on it.
Ever since that day, ever since hearing those words, my life hasn’t been the same.
I immediately opened up my calendar and made time for magic, blocked off three hours a week for meetings, delegated the tasks I don’t like doing.
Now, all of my decisions and actions are put through a filter of my future self.
Would Future Sean hit this snooze button?
Would Future Sean eat this?
Would Future Sean sit here and watch this?
I put a ring on my future self. And every day I get closer and closer to having what I want.
What are you committed to?
Are you committed to the future you?
Are you more committed to bingeing 3 full seasons and 66 episodes than you’re committed to your own dreams and goals?
More committed to scrolling than starting your business?
More committed to watching other people live their dreams than creating your own?
Hey, the reason you don’t have what you want is because you’re not committed to it.
If those are the magic words you’ve been waiting for, now you have them.
Now what would Future You do next?
