Mini workshop: FREE! Right here, right now
What do you want to accomplish?
It's your life. What's important to you? Have you made your list?
Dream big, write it all down and then ask yourself,
"If I could only do ONE of these things, which one would it be?" Now you know what's important to you, really important.
So how do you accomplish what you want?
Here are four elements--pieces of the puzzle--you need to get together:
Do you have right thinking? Do you believe in yourself? Do you know you are worth it?
Do you have what you need--materially, physically? If you don't have what you need, make a list and get it together. If you want to go rock climbing, you'll need the right equipment. What do you need? Be sure that what you have on your list is truly necessary and don't waste your time getting tools that won't really serve you. What do you need to get those tools together?
Do you know how to do what you need to do? Want to be in a triathlon? You gotta know how to swim. If you don't know how to swim, then even with goggles and the best attitude in the world you can't get in the water. No one can know how to do it all, that's where learning from others comes in: read, take a class, practice. This is called growing! (It's a good thing.)
Once you know what you want, believe you can accomplish it and have a strong desire, gather the tools you'll need, and learn the skills, you can take the steps to create your dreams. Break it down into small bite sized pieces. Create a time line or a new habit.
Be relentless. Move forward (make sure your compass is pointing you in the right direction!). Take small steps. If you fall--that's OK! Get back up. Take another step forward.
You CAN do this!
Are you clear about what you want in life right now? What is it that you need to bring into the world right now? Is there a dream? A message? Knowing clearly what you want to say YES to means that you can also gain the clarity of what to say NO to.
What is really important to you? Knowing the what is critical. Success master Brian Tracy teaches to make a list of all the things you'd like to do or accomplish. Then go through the list and ask yourself, "If I could only do one of the things on this list, what would that one thing be? Now go do it."
The next step is knowing the WHY. Why do you want to accomplish this goal or build this dream? Answering the why will fuel you to move forward.
So, what do you really want? How honest can you be about this? How much do you really want it?
I once read in a book for writers that you know you have to write when it's more painful not to write, than to write. If you know what you want, if you're clear about that, there is not a better time than right now to take action.
Be more committed to your dream than to your insecurity!
Take some small action right NOW.
