I consulted with a woman who had been struggling for years with relationship issues with her mom and son.
She sat across from me, listening, absorbing, and listening some more.
I then proposed a plan, how long it would take, how much of an investment it would be for her.
She said, “let’s do it.”
On the spot, she signed up, and 30 days later, she was completely transformed.
I was all in. I was inspired. I could see the result in advance.
She was all in. She was inspired. She could see the results we were gunning for.
It does take two to tango.
And, when both parties are all in, they just do it, and they figure out a way to make the change that’s necessary.
I am reminded of an old story I heard about Norman Schwartscopf, a retired United States army General. He was once asked by a reporter, “how do you make a decision?” He swiftly answered, and I paraphrase, “People bring me a ton of information and lay it out in front of me. I quickly look it over and make a decision. Then, I make it the right decision.”
He makes it the right decision.
Can you hear that subtle nuance? You make a decision, just do it, and make it the right decision.
He didn’t say he would try. He didn’t say he would wait and see after he chose. He didn’t say he’s not sure.
We can take something from this and the woman I speak of. A firm decision in one’s mind, followed by the persistence and focus to make it the right decision, sounds like an interesting formula.
What if mulling things over was actually a complete waste of time? Is it possible that you still will need to travel the same road regardless of what you choose? Is it possible that you will still need to be persistent, determined, courageous regardless of what you choose? Are the same steps involved regardless?
Some things to consider.
