Have you ever noticed that the longer you wait to do something … the more likely it is that you’ll never actually do it?
That’s why when you’ve got that idea, moment of inspiration or set your next goal, then the best thing you can do is START.
I’m a firm believer of the ‘Start before you’re ready’ mindset because are we ever really ready? The longer you wait, the more time you’ll spend in your head talking yourself out of it or find all the reasons why it’s going to be hard! This also applies if you’re spending ages ‘researching’ – which can often be more commonly known as procrastinating!
Results don’t happen by sitting on your backside, thinking or even talking about what you’re going to do! The only way you’ll make it happen is by taking action!
So whenever I’m coaching a client (or coaching myself) around a new idea – I always ask:
‘Right, so what’s the one thing you/I can do RIGHT NOW to get the wheels in motion?’.
“A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”
This could be a small or big action – every thing counts, as long as it’s moving your forward! So it could be picking up the phone & having a conversation. Fleshing out the idea for your new product/idea/service & then running it by a few potential customers. It could be booking yourself onto a course, that could help equip you with the skills, learning or strategies to help you make it happen. It could be actually applying for that new job or getting your CV updated, so it’s ready to send when you spot opportunities.
Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect and there will never be the perfect time. So some action TODAY is better than doing nothing at all! You can then always tweak, develop & make changes to it as you go along – because you’ll then be able to get real feedback!
So with us now over the festive period & solidly into 2014 – make this your day, week, month & year to really go for it.
I’d love to hear what actions you’re going to take now, so please do leave me a short comment below or on the Rapid Transformation Facebook page.
On your marks ….. Ready,
Steady & GO! Enjoy your ACTION-packed day!
