You Have To Do The Work If You Want The Results!!

Do The Work RichLife Book - Your RichLife Starts Here! Beau Henderson

A couple of weeks ago I was wrapping up a presentation and I asked if there were any questions. A man, probably about 40 years old, raised his hand and shared …

He said, “Beau, I was meant for more. I’m in a job I don’t like. I fight too much with my wife. My kids are absolute brats. I’m 30 pounds overweight. I dread getting up out of bed every single day. So … how’s that for a rich life?”

You can listen to the entire conversation right here!!

It was funny because there was actually alot of tension in the room … I think the rest of the group was worrying if he had insulted me. But, I realized that a smile had come to my face and I said, Thank you Sir for your candor because what you just spoke, probably a third of this room is already thinking. And here’s the key …

If you are unhappy with you have, you have to come up with a different strategy or plan. And, the CRUCIAL PART, what I’m going to talk about today, is YOU HAVE TO DO THE WORK. This is great info for all of us. I’ve NEVER said having the healthy, wealthy, fulfilled life on purpose we talk about all the time is going to be EASY. However, I do know that it is POSSIBLE with the right philosophy, attitude, contribution and ACTION. WE HAVE TO DO THE WORK!

Sadly, most people will never do the work it takes to live well

They find comfort in blaming, complaining and hanging around with other people who refuse to do the work. If your money’s not what you want, you have to up with a better plan and get busy doing the work. If your relationships are not deep and meaningful, you have to come up with a better plan and do the work. If your physical health has you tired and sick, come up with a better plan and do the work. If you have work that’s not fulfilling to you, that doesn’t even pay your bills, you have to come up with a better plan and DO THE WORK. If you want a rich spiritual life and feel plugged in, you have to come up with a better plan and DO THE WORK. And, guess what … that is ALL you can control anyway!

Let’s talk about enthusiasm, motivation and inspiration for a minute

Enthusiasm’s great. I’m a big fan. I LOVE when people bring energy to something. Hopefully you see that I bring energy to the things I’m passionate about. But, there’s nothing worse than a person hopping around all excited, with all of this energy and not really accomplishing anything. Same thing with motivation. Motivation and inspiration are great. Nothing better for the mind than to have a great attitude and do what you want to and hit the goals you have out there for yourself. But, there are alto of people out there that never reach the goals that they set for themselves. Or who do not have the life they know that they were meant to have.

Enthusiasm + Motivation + Inspiration + Doing The Work = Results

So what’s the difference maker with enthusiasm, motivation, and inspiration — all good things — but the difference maker is … you ADD doing the work. And here’s another tip … you have got to hang around other people who do the work. This will give you the most favorable conditions for success.

I was just thinking back to a time when I was coming out of a busted relationship. There was no money in the bank account. And, every week I would meet with a friend of mine. the whole purpose of that meeting was blaming and complaining about what wasn’t going right. It took a while, but I finally realized that there really is something to that old saying, “Misery LOVES Company”. And all of those lunches we had over all those weeks .. GUESS how much we got accomplished? .. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Finally I got sick and tired of not moving forward and VOWED that I would find friends who were actually doing the work and who would hold me accountable.

So, if birds of a feather flock together…
I encourage you to hang out with a better flock or upgrade your current flock!

One more thing .. We talk alot about the entitlement mentality. That phrase has almost become a catch-all because it has become so pervasive today. And, it seems that people really do want the goods without doing the work. People want a full bank account without wanting to master the basic money principles to have the money. People want meaningful relationships without investing the time to present with their family and loved ones. People want chiseled abs without wanting to workout or eat right. People want the goods without doing the work. And, what’s worse, people believe they deserve these things and cannot figure out why in the world they don’t have them, and they are always unhappy and unfulfilled!

There’s a great lyric in a song by Neil Young that goes…. “Holding Back Is So Close To Stealing” … most people just don’t get it. Here’s a challenge for all of us today … Don’t hold back. Don’t steal from yourself the people and things you care about in the world.

Let’s be BOLD, STEP-UP and DO THE WORK!!!

    Great article Beau. It's crazy when we find out that true freedom comes from taking the opportunity to practice self discipline. That doesn't seem to compute at all till we give it a fair trial experiment and see the results. From my own experience, getting to the point of willingness to try is sometimes a long and hard road! I'm sure grateful I got there. Life is good when you show up.
