Do The Thing You Don't Want To Do with Darren Hardy

Listen Now:

Let’s have a harsh reality check. Sometimes, you don’t know what’s best for you. Our brains are hardwired to avoid conflict and discomfort, and sometimes that leads us astray in our decision making. This means we tend to avoid the things we should actually do. Darren Hardy easily simplifies it for us.

Hardy stated, "One of the key philosophies that I learned is whatever it is that you don't want to do, is usually the thing that you should do. Whatever it is that I fear, I just try to do what I don't want to do. I don't want to go workout. I don't want to go for a run. It's cold. I should go run. I don't want to bite my tongue and apologize to my wife, when I think that I am right. I probably should do that. I don't want to make this call. I am a little intimidated by calling this person. I should probably call that person. When faced with the choice, and you're not sure which one to take, take the one you don't want to do. I know it sounds simplistic, but it's amazing how often that is the correct choice, because fear is facing you at every turn. The hard choice, and so if you just do what you don't want to do, that is usually the thing you should do".

Powerful. When we get into the habit of questioning our reasons, and build a habit of stepping outside of our comfort zone, we can begin to experience a whole new potential for growth.
