If you're searching for a miracle pill, the latest get-rich-quick idea or some sort of law-of-attraction mindset hoopla, you're not going to find it here. No, what I have to share with you is not nearly as seductive. My 'secret' to achieving any goal isn't expensive or exclusive. It's not complicated or ambiguous. But...it works. And it's been effective in every realm of life, for people all ages, since the beginning of time.

The un-glamorous, ridiculously obvious secret to achieving any goal is that you actually have to Do The Work. Yes, that's it. Just Do The Work.

No matter what your goal is, you have to Do The Work. Chances are you already know WHAT you have to do...it's the doing of it that causes the problem.

If you want to lose weight, you have to show up at the gym.

When you aim to write a book, you have to sit down and write words on the page...every day.

A goal of saving money requires that you make difficult choices in small and large matters - over and over again.

If you're looking for spiritual growth, you need to invest in your relationship with God and spend more time with His Word.

To become more organized, you have to take the time to create your system and choose every day to honor that system.

If you're entering a season of simplifying, you must practice the art of saying no...frequently and unapologetically.

These are not things you can delegate. You have to Do The Work all by yourself. And you can't skip a day, a week, a month or a year...you have to keep Doing The Work until you reach your goal - and often well beyond.

Sure, we moan and groan about going to the gym...we find excuses for not writing...we justify expenses we can't afford...but that's because we aren't willing to Do The Work. Fortunately, Doing The Work is not as difficult as we make it out to be. Here are some tips to help set yourself up for success:
