You can’t rely on your mood to get you where you need to be

‘I’ve just got to be in the mood to read’ – Girl in Waterstones

I’m stood there earwigging at these two girls conversation as they blocked the whole bookcase

Then one of them starts saying how she hardly reads anymore because she ‘gets bored’ and ‘has to be in the mood’

I’m just thinking ‘get the f*ck out of the bookstore then or at least move out of my way’

But that conversation gave me some content for today’s Daily Fire.

You can’t rely on your mood to get you where you need to be

You have to do the stuff you don’t want to do when you don’t feel like it in order to hit your goals.

Even if that means reading a book on marketing or how to build the perfect blog or whatever topic you need to learn but it has zero interest to you…

Even if that means going to the gym when you just want to go home and order a Dominos

I could give you 100 more examples but you get the point right?

Soley relying on your mood (or motivation) to get that shit done is like climbing into the back seat of your car and expecting it to get you to work on time.

The point is you have to show up even when the correct mood does not.
