How To Easily Conquer Doing The Impossible

Recently I read a book called “Doing The Impossible-The 25 Laws For Doing The Impossible” by Patrick Bet-David, and it’s for anyone who wants to be an entrepreneur, better their futures, or as it states in the tile, do the impossible! I’m going to give you 3 of my favorites that I’m currently working on to help me build up success that you can use too.

Your Identity 


Answer the question “Who are you?” What comes to your mind? Your name, your job title, an adjective? According to the dictionary, your identity is a “condition or character as to who a person is, the qualities, beliefs, etc, that distinguish a person.” Your identity is based on whatever you believe to be true. Many people think that they can change their current situation (like getting a new job, dressing better, buying an expensive car, etc), and it will change their identity. But this is actually opposite. We have to change our identity from the inside first, then our outside identity will follow.

To put it into perspective, think about those who have won the lottery or gained a big inheritance only to be broke again pretty quickly. It is because those people did not earn the money and their identity couldn’t keep it. You have to grow into money and learn how to keep it, grow it, invest it and so on, instead of spending it on expensive cars, houses that are not assets, expensive clothes, and going on vacations.

To begin building your identity:

  • First decide what it is you want to be or do.
  • Then go do the work! Acquire the knowledge/information needed.

Then the transforming from the inside out will begin to take place. The only way to change your current situation and get to where you want to be in life is to change your thinking and build into your new identity.

I, personally, am leaning towards investing in multiple real estate properties. That is something I’ve always wanted to do. In order for my new identity to take place I’m reading up on the real estate world, saving for down payments, looking into opportunities where I could partner with a business or someone who is and has been in real estate for a while, looking at places and envisioning myself owning properties and renting them out for passive income.

Now the question is how much time per week are you spending on yourself to build your identity? Make an effort to read, listen, or associate with people that are doing what you want to do and are succeeding at it.

 

Go From Negative To Positive


Have you noticed that most people around you are so negative in the way they think? They say phrases like:

  • What if it doesn’t work out?
  • There’s no way I can afford that!
  • What if they laugh at me?
  • What if something bad happens?
  • I can’t do what they do, why bother?

It seems most of the world is focused on only the negative stuff. The TV,  radio, social media, your friends, your family, the list goes on. But what if you were different?  What if instead of thinking or saying the negative, you did the opposite?

If you want to change your situation then you must start thinking positively and the way to start is by changing the question. You can flip the negative like this:

  • What if it DOES work out?
  • HOW can I afford that?
  • What if they LOVE me or my ideas?
  • What if something GREAT happens?
  • HOW can I do what they do?

Once you change your questions and start to ponder on the answers, you will probably find some motivation, which leads to action, which leads to changing your situation. You are the only one responsible for your future, and understand that the future is first created mentally before it is physically. You must constantly envision the future as you want it, getting out of your comfort zone, and think about what could be possible.

I know it may be difficult in the beginning, in fact, I had a hard time myself! (I had little money, barely any credit, and no car).  That meant I had to borrow my dad’s car to get to work and it was hassle because sometimes he would need it, therefore I had to find another way. Finally I decided that I needed my OWN car, but how?

I started thinking about “What if I had my own car?” “How could I afford the monthly payments, insurance and gas?” “How can I build some credit?” “What kind of car do I want?” and so on. Eventually I got my first credit card, used it, paid it off, built my credit. Then once having a little bit of credit, I started researching what was good on gas, prices, etc. Finally I made a decision and bought one.

Buying a car may not seem like something big or crazy, but it was what I needed to help change my situation. Instead of thinking on the negative side (I can’t afford it, What if I can’t keep paying the monthly bills) I changed my thinking to the positive side, and achieved one of my goals.

You can absolutely do the same. Just make a list of 3-5 things you want to achieve, then make a list of positive questions to help you get motivated to take action. Remember- Thinking about questions leads to answers that lead to motivation, that leads to action! So get thinking!!

 

Waiters And Doers


How long does it take for you to make a decision and take action on it? Are you one of those people that say they have to wait until “the time is right”? Do you only talk about what you want and use the term “someday”? If you are, then you are the type of person that procrastinates. Procrastination holds you back from doing anything; giving you time to talk yourself out of doing what you want to do.

On the other hand, people who take action, are Doers. They do not wait for anything because they understand  that there will never be a perfect time. They start from whatever situation they are in, use what they have and just build as they go along. That is all anyone can do. No-one is just born into success; you must build success up, whatever that means for you.

Personally, I used to procrastinate on everything. Now I am lessening my decision and action time.  Recently someone asked me to partner with them in a business. If it was the old me, I would have thought about it for a few weeks, listened in on some calls, think some more, make some excuse and not give it a go. But instead I was asked, listened to a call, asked some questions, and decided I was in! The fee was paid in about a week; the decision was made within about 2 days. (If you want to learn about this opportunity message me here)

If you want your future to be different from your past and present then you must not only imagine it, but actually take ACTION on it. Don’t wait and let every opportunity pass you by because you feel “it’s not the right time;” you’ve one life so make the most out of it!

Final Thoughts


Remember:

  • Decide on who or what you want to be and take action on achieving it. Transform yourself from the inside out.
  • Start thinking in positive terms-flip your negative questions into ones that will make you think of the benefits of doing an action.
  • Stop waiting for a “Perfect time”. Time will never be just right, take action now and start in your current situation and build as you go along.

These are just 3 out of the 25 laws that this book covers. I am currently working on these laws to better myself and my future. If you want all the laws for doing the impossible, I’d highly recommend getting the book and reading it for yourself. (Click here to purchase the book) The 3 that I’ve touched on may not be the laws that resonate with you, but you can find ones that will help you on your quest for success!

 

To Your Success,
