*D*I*A*- Do It Anyway

*D*I*A*- Do It Anyway

Feeling tired? Distracted? Discouraged? Are you having trouble staying motivated? One of the most important issues that separates the successful from the unsuccessful is the DO IT ANYWAY or *D.I.A.* factor.

In order to make great strides and/or accomplish great feats there will be times when we just don’t feel like doing the work. We don’t want to get out of bed. We don’t want to crack open the book. We don’t want to turn on the computer, head to gym, put on some sweats, pick up the music, put down the beer, pass the ice cream cooler, stay up a little longer, take just a little more, go just a little farther.

Great accomplishments come from great efforts. To believe any other way is foolish and wasteful. Not just any efforts but SMART, FOCUSED and PERSISTENT work that is intended to move one closer to reaching a concrete goal. Not *busy* work but well-thought out and diligent efforts.

Find something that you really want do. Learn everything that you possibly can about accomplishing that goal. Make a plan then spend every possible moment working to achieve that goal. Surround yourself with like minds. Limit your time with those that are doubtful or distracting. Find mentors. Seek inspiration. Hold yourself to a higher standard. Don’t worry about what other people are doing. Focus on YOUR work and YOUR plan and YOUR dream. Ignore the haters.

And even if you don’t feel like it- DO IT ANYWAY!!!
