Why 'just do it' is BAD advice

After over 3000 hours of therapeutic and performance-based conversation with clients in teams, workshops, seminars, and individuals their seem to be 4 paths of the achiever. The ladies and lads that just seem to always be on the ball, take instruction, and can execute with ease.

The early achiever (the world makes sense when you are winning, you probably walked, talked, or swam very early). Fear/ What if I will never be good enough?

The F*&^ the haters ( Chip on the shoulder, you are high energy and extremely driven to prove people wrong) Fear/ What if they are right?

The rebel ( You refuse to live a life like you did growing up, normally economically challenged early life) Fear/ poverty and living the same life

The Adaptor (You seem to be good at everything you try because if you are competent nobody will leave you) Fear/ I will be alone


All these types have a large fire, a strong will and the drive to really get it done, the cool thing is they most likely will achieve everything they set out too 🙂 It will come at a cost and it normally shows up something like this. This was a quote from a client


“I can’t say yet that I’m the best in the world but I’m certainly the best in this country… maybe the world who knows. Sometimes I was scared of my own thoughts and the lengths I would go to say I am the best, is this right Nat?”


I don’t have the right to answer that…. So all we discussed was this question, what if you achieved everything you want but at the end of the day you didn’t like who you were?


There is a great deal more to you than what to ‘do’ with your time
