Each of us knows what we must do to achieve our version of success. In fact, most of us could make a darn good list of the exact skills and assets we need to accomplish anything we want in our career.
The problem is that too many of us are looking to others for a road map to success when the answer is lying in our own lap.
Take Sabrina for example. Sabrina loves to work around a clean and orderly work station. Her area is always perfect at the beginning of the day. But according to Sabrina, the heavy workload doesn’t give her enough time to clean up, in between clients. So the last customer of the day sits amongst the clutter and mess created during the previous six hours.
In Sabrina’s own words, “It’s embarrassing for both me and the client, but I don’t know how to keep my work area tidy and stay on schedule.”
Sabrina doesn’t need a Neatness Coach, or a series of DVD’s on how to tidy up and have fun doing it. It is not the how to that is stopping Sabrina, it’s the want to.
How to – slows us down and offers us an excuse as to why we are not achieving our goals. Want to – gets the job done. So the next time you find yourself saying you wish you knew how to make more money, be more organized, or how to put in “fusion” hair extensions, then kick yourself in the seat of the pants and ask how much you really WANT to do those things.
