You’ve Got To Be Before You Can Do And Have – Paradigm Shift

The Paradigm Shift – BE. DO. HAVE.

It’s that simple…

“You’ve got to be before you can do and do before you can have. ~ Zig Ziglar”

I want to share with you a simple concept, a little shift in the way you might be thinking.

Most people believe if they “have” more time, money, love, or whatever, then they can finally “do” something, which will allow them to “be” the type of person they want to be. But, in actuality, they have it completely backwards. You can’t operate from a “have a thing” mindset first.  It will not produce the results you are looking for.

Your best thinking got you exactly where you are today. It’s time to  change the process and change your thinking.…

It’s common thinking that once we HAVE something; love, a better job, a new car, more time or whatever, then we can DO what we want and BE happy.  But, that’s like taking your car for a ride, then starting it and then putting gas into it.  It just doesn’t make any sense and it just doesn’t work that way.

Needless to say, it’s a recipe for failure and in real life it means MASSIVE RESISTANCE.

The BE DO HAVE Paradigm Shift is the path of least resistance…

One of my mentors Patrick Precourt says it best; BE who you truly are, DO what feels right and you will HAVE abundance that is in complete harmony and alignment with your deepest values.

This one simple shift could change everything in your life!

Stop operating on this belief system. “If I do what I need to do, I’ll get what I want to have, then I can be the person I’ve always dreamed of being”.  If a person continues to operate on that belief system, I can guarantee that you will never get ahead and life will always be an uphill battle.

Who do I need to be?

Once you get really clear about what you want and why you want it, the next question is not ‘what do I need to do?’ but ‘who do I need to be?’  Or you could simply ask yourself one more question…

‘What kind of a person would have access to these kind of outcomes?’

Ask yourself: What kind of person writes a Best Selling Book?  What kind of person becomes a successful real estate investor?  What kind of person becomes a millionaire? What kind of person quits their job and starts their own business? What kind of person makes it in their field of expertise, when most work hard for very little recognition or reward?

What do they believe about themselves?
What do they stand for?
What is their relationship with money?
What kind of self discipline do they have?
How do they walk into a room?

If you can be this kind of person, then why can’t you have the same results as they do?

The answer is you can.  Just tell yourself…

“It is not what do I need to HAVE before I can start, or what work do I need to DO… but who do I need to BE!  Who do I need to become?  What kind of person has the outcomes and success that I want?”

Today’s the day you become the person you need to be in order to do what you need to do to have the life you want.   I believe in you!  Live free. Live Strong!
