Here’s how I see it:
In order to keep moving forward in any area of life we have to intentionally choose to take ACTION. This is especially true in business. You simply cannot accomplish goals or even carry out simple responsibilities without taking ACTION.
For example, there are some actions we HAVE to take: you cannot get to work without first taking the action to get dressed and make the commute. You cannot feed your children without taking the action to buy them groceries (even hitting the drive-thru takes action…one action, at which, I am well practiced!).
But what is about some actions that make them *seem* like an option?
What about when you’re tired, upset about something that happened or someone said or -the most common- you just don’t feel like it? Or many people’s favorite…”I’m to busy”? That is where we need to learn to say to ourselves “I have to do this anyway” and proceed INDEPENDENTLY of that emotion or though telling us we can’t or we shouldn’t.
And don’t wait for permission from anyone. That is the kiss of death for your dreams…you’ll never get the approval you seek. You’re a business owner…nobody is the boss of you!
So do something today. Take one ACTION you’ve been putting off or have been too nervous or lazy to do in the past. Make a list of things you know you SHOULD do, but for one reason or another don’t. Then pick one thing from that list and do it. Repeat daily!
Whatever it is, remember that you are capable. You were meant to do this and the universe will thank you for it.
So get out of your head and act free from what you’re so tempted to tell yourself is a good excuse.
It’s worth it.
And you still don’t believe you can achieve your dreams…well….here’s your affirmation for the day:
