Have you ever heard something so simple yet so profound that it completely stops you in your tracks and changes everything?
Mel Robbins is a best-selling author, motivational speaker, and podcast host. She is a respected world-renowned expert on change and motivation.
Mel firmly believes that if we want to achieve our biggest goals and dreams, we have to master the art of getting ourselves to do the things we want to do, need to do, and know we should do even when we don’t feel like doing them.
When the moment comes to do something important that we just don’t feel like doing and excuses start to bubble up inside, we need to master the art of doing one very simple thing:
Do It Anyway 💪.
This simple yet powerful little phrase completely changed my life.
Now, when I wake up in the morning and just don’t feel like getting out of bed early to go to the gym, I acknowledge how I feel and do it anyway.
When it’s time to do an incredibly boring yet necessary task to grow my business, I acknowledge how I feel and do it anyway.
It feels so much better to get important things done rather than to put them off for as long as possible or just never do them.
The discomfort of “doing it anyway” is much less painful than the discomfort I used to feel when I avoided or delayed taking action.
If this resonates with you, check out Mel’s best-selling book: The 5 Second Rule. While I enjoy traditional reading, Mel is such a powerful motivational speaker the audiobook version she narrates is definitely the best way to experience this one.
I hope this simple phrase helps you as much as it has helped me!
