Force Yourself to Succeed

Having trouble committing to your goals? Maybe you start but don't finish. Here's a the best way to accomplish all of your goals: Put yourself in a position where your back is against the wall. Take some kind of committed step that you can't turn back on without discomfort.

Discomfort doesn't mean physical harm, but it can include: financial loss or social shame. The discomfort has to be real and significant or you won't execute. If you dont like the idea of discomfort,  call it an "earnest deposit". Something  that is non-refundable.

99% of my clients publish their books within 1 to 4 weeks of a major event. Their backs were against the wall, they overcame all their fears,  and finished-- within 30 days-- a book they had been working on for years. 

When your back is against the wall, you will shed all fear, all precaution, and trust in your inate ability to achieve.

Three ways to put your back against the wall:

1. Put Your Money where Your Mouth Is:
As an entrepreneur I'm committed to my professional growth. Therefore I invest in business coaching. Now, I MUST utilize and execute my training in order to make the money required to cover the commitment.

2. Get an Accountability Partner:
Make this person someone you trust and someone who is skilled at being candid and honest. When you are held accountable it becomes uncomfortable when you don't execute your goals.

3. Tell the World:
This doesn't mean you give out the detailed plans of your goal, but by putting your word out there, it will become more uncomfortable to not execute.

Put your back against the wall. When you can't take flight, you will fight!
