3 Steps to Taking Action
Only about 10% of any group will take action on something, even when given all the tools they need for success.
Do you stand in the 10%?
Something about even the thought of taking action can be paralyzing. The paralysis continues becoming procrastination. The procrastination continues and becomes months to years...
3 Steps to Taking Action.
1) Decide on your outcome. For some, this can be incredibly difficult. Just making that choice can send some into the shakes. Remember, making a decision is not permanent. There is no right. There is no wrong. You can change your decision at any time. Simply, give yourself permission to decide, at this moment, on one outcome. Write it down.
2) Make no comparisons. It is human nature to compare. We compare our jobs, our careers, our homes, our living arrangements, our hair, our lack of hair, our cars, our income, the food we buy at the grocery store. We humans compare almost everything to each other. Comparing ourselves to others breeds nothing but sorrow, jealousy, anger, resentment, bitterness, an unhealthy 'I gotta have that' mentality... Upon deciding on your one outcome, make no comparisons. To anyone. Be easy about your choice and relax into it.
3) Complete one small item toward your outcome. Bite-sized. Baby steps. One step at a time. Just one step, one item. Well done! Take another step. Knock out one more item. One at a time. One day at a time. The pace is up to you. You're doing it. You're making progress. Reward yourself. Not the kind of reward that will send you flying ten steps backward.. Something small but meaningful. You'll know what to do. Enjoy it!
You're now getting closer and closer to your outcome. Momentum is a beautiul thing. You're on a roll. Congratulations!
