I’ve just wasted 45 minutes staring at the computer screen trying to figure out what to write about.
Should I write about fashion tips?
Should I write about dating advice?
Should I write about business advice?
I have no clue.
But I do know that I need to start doing something. I can’t watch another Jason Capital video in good conscious without at least taking some action.
It seems like whenever I open up the laptop and check out my youtube subscriber list or check out instagram – it’s always full of people that are scuba diving on a Wednesday afternoon in some beautiful ocean somewhere, or surrounded by super models that don’t have a worry in the world.
So I think…hmm, wouldn’t it be nice to have a little of that too?
More financial freedom. A better dating life. The ability to travel wherever I want and do whatever I want.
But where do I start?
Or how do I start? Or what should I do to achieve these things?
I’ll think about these questions for a few minutes (or days) and then I’ll just put on another youtube video or decide that maybe I need to vacuum for a bit, or maybe play guitar for awhile and waste more time.
And then once I’ve practiced a few pentatonic scales and it’s time for bed I always kick myself and think – that’s more time that I just wasted.
Do you ever have this feeling? Like you want something so bad but you just don’t know how to get it?
For me right now the two things that I want are; building my online business and finding a new girlfriend. (btw if you’re having trouble attracting women this is a great course –> The Scrambler )
Something very powerful occurred to me over the 45 minutes that I was staring at the computer screen before I started writing.
And that was…
The only way to discover exactly what my online business should be, or the only way to really meet an awesome girl – is to take action.
Yes, take action!
I just need to get started and you need to get started (unless you already have everything that you want in life) but for the rest of us – we just need to start taking action, it’s that simple.
If I write 20 blog posts about fashion, 20 blog posts about dating, and 20 blog posts about starting a business – by the end of that process I should have a much better idea of what direction I want to go in.
If I never start and I always just think about what I should be doing then I will NEVER get anywhere. So that is my plan. I’m just going to take action.
And when it comes to meeting women, the same thing applies – you just need to take action. Sign up for salsa lessons, join a crossfit gym, or whenever you see a cute girl just open your mouth and say something – anything. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Just take action and start by saying “hi.”
A few paragraphs ago I mentioned the name Jason Capital. If you have never seen JC’s youtube channel – he teaches dating advice and lately he has been teaching more about entrepreneurship.
But guess what he was doing before teaching dating advice?
He was teaching basketball skills online and on youtube!
That is what he did to “just get started.”
Once he was already making videos and taking action it was a lot easier to just “pivot” from basketball videos (which he didn’t have a passion for anymore) to making videos about dating advice for men.
It is so much easier to change direction once you are moving then it is to start from a complete standstill. If he had not already been making video’s and running an online business he probably would not have know what to do or how to get started once his real idea came to him.
But since he had already decided to take action and get started with something, it was much easier to switch to another topic that he was a lot more interested in.
This is why it is crucial to get the ball rolling and start doing something to work towards your goals, even if you don’t have the perfect plan right now.
So who’s with me? Who is ready to start taking action today towards their goals?
All I know is that I have a lot more blog posts to write. I’m not sure where it will end but I’m just happy I’m getting started towards one of my goals.
Oh, and in case you haven’t guessed yet, the answer to the title: The surefire way to never find your purpose, never make money, and never meet the woman of your dreams. Is…
…to never take action.
