The “D Cubed” is what I call “Desire, Drive & Dedication”
Often enough through life we all have things we would like to achieve. Wanting something is really only a small part of it though. Wanting a new car or even wash board abs can be there but you really must DESIRE it.
Advocare used to have a saying that talked about people finally wanting to make a change. They must choose to change. Often enough before making this choice, their “root of disgust” with their situation has to be so great that it creates a spark. This creates a flame which cannot be put out. Something that will drive them to their goal and beyond. This is true Desire.
You must take Desire and let it be the fuel for what gives your car the DRIVE to move forward. The Drive is the planning stage of your “D Cubed”. What is each step that will play an important roll to get you what you Desire? Is your Desire losing weight, having more confidence, earning your black belt or even becoming world champ??? What is your plan for getting there. We can all go to Houston, but our route might be different from each other.
Once the car is fueled up and we have directions to where we are going, it is time to put in the time. There is no replacement for DEDICATION. Some people are born with superior skills or talents, but Commitment is not based on these. Commitment is based on your Dedication to get what you Desire. How committed are you to your Goals???
This Dedication is you rolling out of bed even when you are tired, sore and even depressed. IT is what makes you choose the right foods, hydration, rest and activity to help you Drive towards your Desire. It is the thing that reminds you of your choices and keeps you in check through the daily grind.
Try applying this to your next goal.
See what you can accomplish if you have all three “D’s”.
If you are finding yourself moving away from what you Desire… then re-evaluate your “D Cubed” and see what is missing. Chances are one of the “D’s” is missing.
Lets plan together for the month of March.
