Stop SHOULDing all over yourself, it’s Really not sexy

I know I am definitely not just talking about myself when I have said, ‘I SHOULD’, a DISGUSTING amount of times. 'I should do this', 'I should really do that', 'I should eat well', 'I should do that work out', 'I should make sure this bit of work is done', 'I should get an early night tonight', 'I should just take the jump into the thing I really want to do'. Should should should….are you bored of it yet? I know I am. YAWWWWWWWWWWN lol.

Does this resonate with you? What things do you say ‘should’ about on a regular basis, and why aren’t you just fucking DOING IT? We all know it gets us nowhere and actually just keeps you focusing on what’s LACKING in your life. Sitting in a place of lack then ultimately means you’re not growing, and actually resisting all the wonderful things that are being presented to you on a daily basis. This then creates a spiral of laziness, unfulfillment, less motivation, moaning….ok….this went a little heavier than I imagined all from the word should!...


This is something that really fascinates me, because WHY do we NOT do things we know will serve us, or believe we SHOULD be doing. Why do we put excuses in the way when actually, we will feel so much better if we just TAKE ACTION and GET IT DONE.

Is it because they are not actually important to you? Is it because you just believe it’s something you should do because other people say it is? Is it because you don’t actually know why you should be doing it? Is it because you don’t feel worthy? Or, you worry about the judgement of others if you do it? There are a million different ideas and paths I could go down here, but Iets get to ways we can get sexy and eliminate this.

Of course, this isn’t something that just changes over-night, I mean, that would be amazing, if we could literally wake up tomorrow and just get to it. But simply recognising it and putting a few steps into action is an incredible place to start. These are some simple steps I originally implemented, and have helped so much, in taking the word 'should' out of my vocabulary.

1. Make a list of all the things you want to do, but always put off; however little or big it really doesn’t matter.

2. Write by each action WHY this is something you want to do.

3. Journal how it will feel when you have taken action without the ‘should’, or excuses getting in the way.

4. Check out the Book and Audio I have recommended for this month on my Home Page.


Happy February, Time to stop Should’ing all over yourself!
