Are You Ready to Go For It?
We all know people who are always talking about doing something. They have lots of plans and dreams, but when it comes to getting results, it’s a dud.
What do those who get it done do differently than those who sit on the sidelines? Let’s take a look. If you do these things too, you can make the switch!
Six Easy Ways to Stop Dreaming and Start Doing
Do something! Anything. Everything starts with a first step. Lots of people won’t take the first step until they know it’s the right step. Momentum is more important. You haven’t thought of everything. You will have to adjust as you go anyway, so just get started. Take responsibility for everything that happens. A lot of people don’t want to get the blame if the dream fails. Guess what? Responsibility is a double edged sword. You carry the load when it’s hard and you reap the rewards when your dreams pay off. There is no other way around it, but to accept it. Ignore the haters. It’s easy to sit on the sidelines and criticize and poke holes in other people’s dreams. Be too busy making progress to notice or care. At the end of the day, you will be one step closer to the reality that you want, and they will still be on the bench watching.Turn failure into feedback. There is no perfect plan. Life has curve balls. Use this to change course and improve upon your last attempts until you get where you are going. If Plan A doesn’t work, go for Plan B.Have an accountability plan. There is nothing like having to answer to someone to motivate you to show up and give it your all. A group, person, coach, or even your own journal is better than going it alone. Remember why you set out to begin with. Bilbo Baggins was searching for adventure. Scarlett O’Hara wanted to avoid poverty and hunger. The Great Gatsby wanted love. Establish a clear and compelling reason to keep going and never lose sight of it. It will keep you going.
Life is short and precious. We’re all here to use our talents, desires, and skills to make an impact.
Whether your dream is to be a mom, experience amazing things, or discover a breakthrough that changes the world, what are you waiting for?
You can have what you want, but it’s not going to be handed to you. You’re going to have to go get it. So let go of your excuses and let’s go!
