In episode 45 of the GUIDE Culture® podcast, Macy, Loy and Kathryn talk about the concept of BE-DO-HAVE.
One of our most commonly asked questions on Instagram is, “what do I do?” Whether they are asking about what to do in their business or just life in general, it seems like everyone wants to know what they have to do to have the life they want. Our answer is much more simple than you may think!
Here’s a quick recap:
There’s a special formula that’s required for you to have the things you want in life.
The first part of the formula is BEING.
Being the right person.
Everything is built from the inside out. You have to start with you.
You have to become the person that the person you’re looking for is looking for – in business and in life.
Who are you being? Who are you becoming?
Be honest with yourself. Are you really showing up for yourself and becoming the person that you really want to be?
If you are learning and growing, people will want to follow that.
The second part of the formula is DO.
When you are focused on who you want to BE, it will help you naturally know what to DO.
When you are being the right person and doing the right things, you can have the life you want.
People get out of life, not what they want, but what they expect to get.
If you really expect to get something out of life, you will form habits that lead toward that.
The ‘DOs’ in your life will all align as a part of the process when you decide who you want to BE.
Alignment becomes natural when you see that future version of yourself.
The true joy and growth in life is in the process.
If you’re reading this and thinking: “okay, but where do I even start? I literally don’t know what to do.” That’s what we call STIR THE POT. Learn more about that HERE!
Stirring the pot essentially means getting out there and doing things that create momentum – in your business or in life. A lot of these activities WILL cause resistance. That’s normal. Recognize it and push through it.
The thing is, when you’re being the right person, doing the right things and demonstrating that, people will notice.
No one is going to ask you to add value to their life until you add value to your own. It’s the truth.
The third part of the formula is HAVE.
Having the things you want in life.
Once you’re focused on being the right person, you will naturally move in the direction of doing the right things, which will ultimately lead to having all the things you want in life.
So, what do you want in life? Who do you want to be? What actions will you take to get there?
Start small – you will gain momentum and experience the compound effect. It’s a process. Enjoy it!
