Just Fucking Do It

Today’s challenge was just to get this site up and write a blog post.

Boom. Done.

It reminds me of this book called “The Underachiever’s Manifesto” that extolls the virtues of “the right action, in the right quantity, at the right time.” Boom.

After spending most of my life as a perfectionist, this feels really good.

“If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.” Fuck yeah – AND, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing half assed.”

So I guess this blog will involve excessive use of bad language. So that happened.

Today I woke up just ready to fucking go. I watched this Conor McGregor video where he says something like this…

“I am taking what I want and I am doing what I want. When you can rack up $500MM for the company in back to back events, you can do whatever the fuck you want. I am living the ‘whatever the fuck I want’ life. Whatever I want, whenever I want. And I’ve earned that through real work, sacrifice, and victory, and I continue to earn it through real work.” ~ Conor McGregor

It helped me realize that… We’re all living the “whatever the fuck we want” lifestyle. It’s just some of us don’t know what we’re choosing.

I am so, soooo grateful to be able to sleep in today. I feel energized and happy and grateful and ahhhh sooo good!

And I earned that shit. I earned it through working my ass off while living at home with my parents when everyone was telling me to go get an apartment in Boston and blow my whole paycheck. Which would have been fun. But now – three fucking YEARS later – I’m still living off of those savings, and they enable a level of choice and security in my life that I wouldn’t have otherwise.

And I continue earning it day-to-day. By showing up, and doing the WORK. The real work. Like Conor McGregor said…

“Everywhere I look, I see fake work or pretend work or pose work. I put in real work, hard work. And that’s it. People pull out all the time and people make excuses all the time but I just get on with it. I put in the work and reap the rewards and that’s it. And that’s why you see me with everything, I’m in complete control of this whole game.” ~ Conor McGregor

For me, the Real Work has been doing the internal mindset reconfiguration. Reconditioning my central nervous system and reprogramming the beliefs in my mental operating systems to change how I structure reality. This shit is hard, but it works. Way better than “staying busy” and doing the same shit over and over.

But action is key as well. “All I can control are my actions and, to an extent, where I direct my attention.” ~ Dr. Lawrence Peltz

Action and focusing the energies into building something REAL is where it’s at. That’s what changes EVERYTHING – feedback from reality that things are different. Everything has shifted. That’s what changes one’s self-image permanently. And then the actions naturally follow.

I guess that’s why I’m starting this blog again. I feel a deep longing to share what I’ve learned. To share my stories and be seen and heard, with the hope that these lessons will help others live the lives they desire.

To put my STORIES into ACTION in REALITY to create an ASSET that shifts my REALITY of how I see myself and am seen by others. Keep showing up, keep sharing, keep giving value and speaking my truth. Who knows where it will lead?

First blog post… Complete. Looking forward to showing up and putting in the time and work, trusting what comes out.

P.S. “2015 was my year. 2016 is also my year. Every year is my fucking year.” ~ our boy Conor McGregor
