I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It? Summary

Stop not doing what you know you should do!

You might think laziness, lack of willpower, and/or low motivation are to blame for the fact that you aren't achieving your goals. But fascinating research in the field of psychoneuroimmunology has revealed another, far more likely possibility. One with the potential to transform your life in a dramatic way.

The typical excuses for not doing what you know you should - I'm too stressed out... I don't have the time... I don't have the energy, etc. - are, in fact, manifestations of a complex, interconnected web of psychological, chemical, and neurological factors.

When activated, these factors can effectively paralyze you - making it virtually impossible for you to take the actions needed to create change in your life.

In other words, even if you're highly motivated... if you've got these internal circumstances operating, you aren't going to be able to do it.

But while the biochemistry may be complex, the solutions are actually quite simple.

Dr. Nick Hall reveals these solutions - and the fascinating science behind them - in I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It? You'll learn:

  • An extraordinarily powerful stress-fighting tool that very few people take advantage of.
  • An easy way to instantly regain control and stay focused in an emotional emergency.
  • Six things to do when you think you've taken on more than you can accomplish in the time you have.
  • The mistake almost everyone makes when they organize their to-do list.
  • A simple exercise that can instantly tell you which side of your brain is dominant at any given time.
  • The first-thing-in-the-morning action that will literally reset your internal clock and have a profoundly positive impact on your energy level for the rest of the day (and it is SO easy to do!).

    How you feel about yourself crucially affects virtually every aspect of your life, especially how high in life you are likely to rise. Who and what you think you are shape all your responses. Self-esteem, therefore, becomes the key to success or failure. It is also the key to understanding yourself and others.

    Have you ever written down a goal? As you were writing it, did you hear two voices in your head? One voice saying: "That's it. I'm going to change my life!" "You can have it if you work for it!" Then the other saying: "Don't be a fool; you'll lose everything." "Forget It. That's ridiculous." The first voice is the positive voice of your dream; the other is the voice of current reality. The second voice sees only the present and the past (which no longer exists)... but the first sees the future as it could be.

    The great psychologist Abraham Maslow's life's work was devoted to studying the nature of personality. His forte was that he was interested in personality at all levels. He described and codified the state of ultimate mental health. He called it "self-actualization". He taught human motivation as emerging from a hierarchy of needs - as basic needs are met like food and water, higher needs arise like love. At the pinnacle stands self-actualization.

    Self-esteem is the reputation you get with yourself. You develop this reputation through your actions. Competent, confident and courageous actions enhance self-esteem and build inner strength. Such experience leads to the conviction that you are competent to cope with the challenges of life - and the belief that you deserve happiness and success to be yours. The opposite is also true.

    All the people you know personally have some self-confidence. If they didn't, you wouldn't know them. They wouldn't be braving the daily world. They'd be hermits, or shut-ins, afraid to do anything. Some self-confidence, in today's world, isn't really enough. What is? Abundant self-confidence. Think of all the things you could do if you enjoyed superior levels of self-confidence in all areas of life that are important to you. What would stop you?
