The fear of the unknown is a powerful emotion, what is even more powerful is knowing that possibilities are endless in what you can achieve. So many people let fear hinder their true potential simply because they lack the confidence and motivation to follow their dreams or can’t imagine the failure of acting on a powerful and passionate whim. What should inspire you to act on things you can do today is the notion that tomorrow is not promised. Would you really want to live your life knowing that there was something that your heart desired, but you could never commit to it because you did not know how it would turn out? That’s why we live this thing call life. You will not know the results of everything you ever commit to! If we did, then we just might have our self a good ole’ utopia, and what’s the risk in that.
In every risk there is a reward, your hard work will lead you down a path of success, or to a journey of experience. Think about it. Is there something you want to try, a venture you want to start up, some words you want to get published? Now ask your self, what is standing in your way? 8 times out of 10, I believe the answer will be YOU. However cliché it made sound, but I love NIKE for this, sometimes you just have to get out there and “Do It”. The most difficult part of trying is taking the first step, then it’s like riding a bike, you never forget the feeling of confidence meeting ambition. Yes I know, words are letters that need to be made actionable. Here are four steps to get your thinking to doing!
· Visualize- Know what it is that you want to get done and your perception of how that will bring you success. See your plan in action.
· Write- Put all the details of your goals into writing. Include what it will take to get your goals accomplished, who has to be involved, what is a sufficient time line, and what you hope to get accomplished.
· Research- Dedicate time to research pros and cons, it is always best to make an educated decision. Include the who’s, what’s, where’s, and how’s with your research, from there you are on your way to being highly informed and making your goals actionable.
Do- Make the first move, the next move, and your best move. Put your plan into fruition!
Just remember, even if your plans don’t work out the way you want them to. At least you are living life with out any regrets. Just try your best, and the next time you go digging for treasure, you might just come back with the pot of gold!
