What You Link to Pleasure or Pain Determines Your Results

A lesson that I’ve been learning for the past couple of weeks at my sales job is that your behavior has a direct link to the results you get.

The way you behave influences the way you act.

And it’s your actions that produce the results you get.

And lately for me it hasn’t been fruitful for me to allow my emotions to rule how I act.

Since it’s because of that, that my results have not been so awesome.

And the funny thing with life’s lessons, as painful as they are, they will keep on repeating until you get the lesson.

A famous personal development coach by the name of @Tony Robbins once said we are motivated by pain and pleasure.

The more pleasure you link into doing something, the more you will keep doing it.

The more pain you will link into not doing something, the more you will continue not doing it.

So in other words the more I link pleasure or comfort in doing what am I currently doing, I will forever produce the results I am getting.

Same goes for how if I continue to link pain or discomfort to doing something different, which is outside of my comfort zone, the higher the chances of me continuing getting the results I am currently getting.

Solution:

So it is a matter of changing what I link to pleasure and what I link to pain so to get things going.

For example

With regards to pain…

– how painful is it for me now not getting the results I want?

– what am I losing out on because of my current behavior?

– who that I love is suffering because of my results?

– how is it affecting me now financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually?

– how worse will it be for me 5 years from now, 10 years from now, or 20?

With regards to pleasure…

– how pleasurable and awesome would it be for me if I DID get the results I wanted?

– what would I gain from the new and exciting rewards from my joyful results?

– who that I love will be benefiting from my new and improving results?

– how will I gain financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually?

– how much more better will it be for me 5 years from now? 10 years from today? Or in 20 years time?

I love you.

Thank you.
