Accept that bringing success into your life is a process, it is not an event. Commit to include this new recipe for long term sustainable success into your life and begin using the tools offered. This will allow you to unlock potential that you never even knew you had. Think of it this way:
- Wot if it is just and apple a day that keeps the doctor away and you don’t eat that apple?
- Wot if this approach is all that you need to finally discover Wot the (BLEEP) you want to do with your life?
- Wot if this is the key you have been waiting for, to unlock your potential and express your dreams?
- Wot if you neglect to make the small shifts and introduce the new daily routines? Are you willing to miss the opportunity to finally live a fulfilling and complete life, simply because you choose not to introduce and apply a few new daily routines into your life?
This book is designed to empower you to replace those limiting, dream killing habits that are keeping you trapped in mediocrity, with a success habit set that will make arriving at success one day feel almost effortless.
We will guide you to consciously make your habits and routines work for you. Have you ever arrived at a destination and thought “How did I get here?” You have absolutely no conscious idea what route you took or how you drove there. This is how your habits or entrenched routines work. How amazing is it that you can perform a complex task like driving through traffic, stopping at traffic lights, obeying the speed limit and being able to keep yourself safe, all without thinking about what you were doing or even remembering what you did. This is the basis for the new routines you will gradually introduce into your life in response to the tools offered in “Wot the (Bleep) Now?”
You are encouraged to gradually introduce a few new daily routines into your life, and to commit to practicing them until they are habits. This will make achieving success feel effortless. Your role is not to keep applying willpower to everything you do. Your job is to learn a set of daily routines and to turn them into a success habit set.
This success habit set can then be pointed at any outcome or result you desire and turned into effortless success. “Wot the (Bleep) Now?” is a book that is packed with practical advice on creating useful habits that will serve you. We are creatures of habit that quickly get into comfort zones of routine behavior. Learning to use this fact about human behavior to our advantage is the focus of this approach.
Instead of going against our instinctive conditioning and working harder and harder every day to pursue success, we tune into how we function best and we use our basic human conditioning as a tool for creating the outcomes we desire.
Until we become aware of these basic truths about our nature, we are most likely to constantly operate outside our comfort zones and expect to use willpower to force ourselves to function against our own values. It is no wonder that so many people land up not achieving the success they deserve or desire. They are working against their natural makeup and design. You would never expect great results if you entered a combine harvester in a formula one motor race. The combine harvester is not designed for speed, it is designed for process. Similarly you cannot expect your brain to work differently from the way it is designed to operate. It is designed to keep us safe and to operate routinely within the bounds of our comfort zone. Yet we force our brains to operate under stress and we expect that our willpower is enough to override our basic programming. When we expect to operate outside the basic design parameters of our brains for prolonged periods, we invariably fail. We then torture ourselves and chastise ourselves as failures, all because we are unaware of how to use our own machinery properly.
“Wot the (Bleep) Now?” will show you that long term sustainable success is not a mystery. It is a compounding process of small daily routines over time that adds up to significant results i.e. the creation of a success habit set that is unique to your circumstances and workable for you.
I will show you how to regain the belief in your abilities and how to remain focused and aligned with your mission and vision of the future. We will explore challenges, roadblocks and setbacks and you will be guided to accept them, manage them and then find ways to exploit them to your advantage. Challenges are all part of the success process, so when they do show up (and they will), you will know not to allow them to overwhelm you. Your new habit set will equip you to review each challenge, find solutions and even reveal opportunities that may be hidden behind each challenge. The measure of someone is never whether they encounter challenges, but rather how they choose to respond to any challenge that does cross their path.
Your failure in the past is most certainly not a sin. It is merely a symptom of the methods you employed in the past. These methods flew in the face of the natural workings of your body and the basic operating principals of your brain. Your past failure was the result of not utilizing your machinery properly. You can never expect yourself to succeed when you place yourself under stress or if you operate outside your natural area of strength and comfort. Stop trying to impose new pressure on yourself, using pure willpower to achieve the results you want. When you do this, you place yourself under a huge amount of unnecessary stress. Your body’s natural defense mechanisms then come into play and your body strives to get back into balance.
The trick to stop this cycle of never ending un-kept promises and failure is to avoid placing your body under any unnecessary stress. Rather:
- Commit to gradually expand your comfort zone.
- Align your hierarchy of values with what you are attempting to achieve.
- Gradually develop a set of success habits that will make success both inevitable and effortless.
When you remove the imbalances or stressors from your life and you work instead to operate within the natural parameters or functioning of your body, you bring your system back into balance and you are able to function optimally, working with your body, rather than against it. The principals offered in “Wot the (Bleep) Now?” must become your new way of life, a new way of doing things. The way you do anything, is the way you do everything.
