Pushing takes a lot of energy. The last push to finish your morning run. Pushing yourself to do things you don’t necessarily want to do. Pushing someone to do something you want them to do, but they may not been too keen on.Pushing is very necessary at times, but it will tire you out and ground you down quickly.

What if, however, you were PULLED instead of pushed?

What if you had such compelling ideas, dreams and goals that they pulled you out of bed, into your running shoes, past the afternoon crash at work, up and out of what used to be considered a problem, right to your destiny?

Wouldn’t that type or pulling be much more fun than always having to push?

I think so. And after today’s episode, so will you.

  1. Based on personal experience if you have to push someone to do something, they don’t want to do it. They might have a block, they may want to avoid conflict, they may really want to do it but are trapped by fear, they’re just not ready, willing or able at that time.

    I used to have to be pushed, at school, in relationships, even work at times and it can be as draining as hell, better off focusing your time and attention on those who are Hell yeah people for what you want/are doing.

    The flipside to that is if you stop pushing, that person may become interested in what you’re doing and get pulled along by your vision, passion, energy. Then they’ll willingly join you on your adventure. Works in any area of life.

    All depends on how you frame it, share your vision with those you want to involve, employees, friends, lovers and see who comes along. Work on your game, do your thing and you’ll attract the right people/circumstances most of the time.

    Love this topic Dre.

    • True, Colin. Finding your focus eliminates need to look at anyone else at all. I’ll be discussing in a future show.
