Whoa! What?! Did she just say my feelings are irrelevant? What do you mean how you feel is irrelevant?
How you feel is irrelevant:
- I just don’t ‘feel’ like working today
- Guess what? No one feels like working everyday. The successful and the hustlers do it anyway.
Remember that vision you have? You do have one, right? If you don’t – GO – you need this!
That vision will pull you towards your goal – a day at a time, a podcast at a time, a team member at a time, a webinar at a time, a sale at a time, a blog post at a time, a week at a time, a month at a time, and a year at a time until you are living your vision. I’m not saying you will ever ‘arrive’ because I hope your vision grows as you do. Dream big y’all!
You overcome these feelings everyday to reach your goals and fulfil responsibilities:
- I don’t feel like getting out of bed
- I don’t feel like making dinner
- I don’t feel like doing the laundry
- I don’t feel like doing the dishes
- You fill in the blank
Now I’m not saying you don’t re-prioritize and talk yourself out of these things perhaps, but they get done right?!
So, how you feel is irrelevant. You will feel like eating that cake when you’re on a diet and will refrain to reach your end goal. That’s the point – keep working, yes everyday, to get closer to your vision.

Now, if you’ve read this far and/or you know me – you probably know that I don’t really think how you feel is irrelevant, but know the difference between lack of motivation and a real feeling. I didn’t feel like writing this blog post either, but that’s not emotion, that was just an excuse. I could have rationalized away the time it took to do this, but that would not have gotten me closer to my goals and I would have regretted it later.
So, be honest with yourself and go for your goals!
