Feel turning in stomach. Acid-bleeding sensation. Commonly called fear, I feel this when I think of challenging myself. Calling people. Running game. Etc.
If I define an end time for publishing 10 e-mails/sales letters to Dan, write out 10 reasons why I must publish 10 e-mails/sales letters to Dan by this end time every 3 hours, and write out 10 reasons why I know I can publish 10 e-mails to Dan by the end time every 3 hours, and set 5 alternate responses to 3 stimuli representing ‘crutches’, negative activity, and visualize doing this successfully for 5 minutes each hour, then Dan will make $100,000 in 90 days.
1. You’re going to get someone to take a certain action–buy a product, opt in, quit smoking, what have you. Select what your definite aim is–preferably for the scope of the next year or longer.
2. Set an end time for when the 10 e-mails/sales letters must be done… these can be as long as I want… as long as they’re published. Must be under 72 hours from you reading this post.
3. When you start this experiment, and for every 3 hours after the end time–except for sleep–ask these two questions: A) Why I must publish 10 e-mails or sales letters by [end time], and B) Why I know I can publish 10 e-mails or sales letters by [end time].
4. At the start of the experiment, ask yourself what triggers a ‘craving’ or ‘procrastinating’ state… write down 10 answers to this. Select the top 3 triggers or stimuli and proceed to step number 5.
5. Write down what your response currently is. Ask yourself now, “What would be a better response?” or “How many better ways to respond to this?” Chances are, your new response will be this questions you just asked yourself… but visualize yourself doing (asking) your new response for a moment.
6. Every three hours, after you write your 10 reasons why you must write the 10 sales letters and after you write your 10 reasons why you know you CAN write the 10 sales letters, visualize yourself actually doing this quickly, expediently, and well with hours of time before [end time].
