When you have just finished reading a book, you are usually reluctant to start with a new book right away. You instead keep reading the old books because starting a new book, is like a new adventure. It takes a little more energy to start a new book. Why do you have to take a pause?
Why do you want to wait New Year?s to start with your weight loss plan? Just do it. It?s less painful to do it than it is to sit around and think about it or feel guilty that you haven?t started yet. Once you get started, things will get done.
- Keep your to-do list simple, and do at least one new thing every day.
?I would start?. But I?m waiting for the perfect time?
When exactly is this perfect time? When you get a few more qualifications added to your resume? When you find a workout partner and the right equipment? When you have little more money? When the temperature outside is slightly higher? When is that? Tomorrow. The day after. Never? There is no perfect time, there never will be.
- You start right now.
The only thing that is stopping you from achieving your dreams is the story you keep telling yourself about why you may not succeed in your endeavors. This story keeps you stuck to your chair, and does not allow you to get up and run towards your goals.
Start now. By starting I mean, take some action, initiate in some direction with thought. Starting is when you put your foot down, and take a stand to get the job done, not when you stand there scared to take a step forward.
- As long as you are resisting and pushing forward towards your goal, something is being done. Just because you fail once, does not mean you won?t make it the nest time. It is okay if you make a few mistakes. Give it time. Push through, switch track, adopt new methods, eventually you will reach your destiny.
- With too much work, we forget to form productive relationships. We tend to distance ourselves from the rest because this is ?our? goal. But the truth is sometimes in order to boost ourselves we may need a little help now and then. Someone who understands our passion, our fears, our strengths, can help us achieve our heights. Support is necessary to give us a push. You fly on your own, but someone has to fire your booster rockets.
Actions are rewarded, not reactions.
