In 2006, Rhonda Byrne released her book, the Secret. It shooked the world. Today, it has sold over 30 million copies. I must admit that the Secret has left a deep impact on me since then. Today, I would also like to share with you two secrets of my own. The first secret that I want to share with you is the secret of how you can produce your best work.
The best way to producing your best work is to do it even when you really don’t feel like doing it. This is to say if there’s work to be done, even if you truly don’t feel like doing it, you do it anyway. I admit, it is hard. You will feel like it is torture. But you must tell yourself to just do it anyway. The key to achieving that is when every time you don’t feel like doing something important, you detach your emotions from the task as instantaneously as you can. Almost all the time, it is your emotions that are stopping you from doing it and the longer you allow yourself to entertain the idea of not doing it, the more you will end up doing just that.
You see, when you are able to conquer every temptation that’s telling you to not do it, that is special. You have just sent out a message to the world to express how much you really, really want it. Your audience will feel it from the work you eventually ship. It will also impact you in a way you could never imagine. Your work will not just be merely another piece of work but one that is created through grit, focus, and determination. If you’d have given in to your excuses, you would have lost the battle. Success occurs when your dreams get bigger than your excuses. You will never be able to succeed if you are someone who succumbs easily to your excuses.
Average people are always waiting for the so-called perfect time. Perfect financial strength. Perfect energy level. Perfect weather. And even perfect mood. On the other hand, successful people just get started. So, in the future, every time you don’t feel like doing something that you know you ought to do, remember – just do it anyway.
And now, here’s the second secret…
