The big decisions in life are the ones that make all the difference. They are the course changers. They can take your life to a whole new level you never dreamed off before. They impact your life and your loved ones lives.
These big decisions will either impact our lives positively or negatively. The downside seems just as big as the upside and that is the reason we hold back on these decisions. You are afraid of getting the downside and thus never action your goals.
So, instead of taking action you wait for the perfect time to action your goals. And you wait. And you wait and you wait. I have met people that have been waiting for 10 to 15 years, please don’t make the same mistake as they have. They saw how their dreams, aspirations and greatness slowly passed them by.
Step 1: How to spot the perfect time
The reality is, there is no such thing as the perfect time. BUT WAIT! There is more. Even if you did have the perfect conditions to take action it would only exist for a mere millisecond. Then life would happen and that moment is gone. You can get fired. You can get sick. Your wife gets pregnant. Your kid needs special treatment. Your boss just had your butt for lunch. The list goes on, it’s life.
Life will continue to happen and that you cannot change. It is the actions that you take within life that makes or breaks the perfect timing. There has never been, not will there ever be, the perfect time for you to take action. The nervousness you feel is part of what makes it worth to take action after all. Without it you would not look back at this moment in awe.
Your reaction to life, the smaller decision you make within those challenges are what creates the perfect moment. You create the perfect conditions that favour your goals, it is not given to you.
Step 2: How to action your goals for success
Actions do have consequences and yes, in the end there are right actions and wrong actions. But when you hit a wrong action you need not get stuck in the mud. The only way to get out of an action that yielded less than stellar results is to take another action.
Your big hairy and scary goal is broken down into smaller goals and actions, many of which will not go as planned. To action your goals for success is just that, action your goals. Take action.
If you are afraid of taking action, take a smaller action. Break it down into actions that your level of fear and nervousness can handle. You will make slower progress, it will take you longer, but at least you are taking action.
They key to success it to be like water. Water will always find a way to move forward. It will adapt and shape to the environment simply to flow forward. That is what you need to do when you action your goals.
Go and action your goals today
I know that we are at the end of the year and this the traditional time to reflect and plan how we will action our goals next year. But remember my advice, there is no perfect time to action your goals. Action your goals in the smallest actions you can so that you become less afraid but at least move forward. You can! I know it!
