In today’s post I wanted to talk about something that really hits home for me through my amazing procrastination skills and that is actually putting my goals into action. I’m one of those people who can dream about what they want forever. I can see what I want and even internally know the steps I need to do to get there; however, I miss the key component and that is to actually put what I know into action.
I don’t know about all of you but sometimes I’ll just sit back and think why I’m not further along in a certain goal. I’ll look at my calendar and realize a year has almost passed and then look at my progress and feel disappointed. I’ve listened to every motivational podcast, read every self- help book, and yet it seemed like I barely made any progress on my goals I wanted to accomplish. All because I didn’t do the action.
This might sound obvious “Like of course you have to put it into action” but I know I’m not the only one who becomes a deer in headlights when it’s time to actually start putting the action into the goals. Maybe it’s the classic “I don’t feel like it today” or “I don’t have the right equipment to do this” or “I need to have perfected this better” or “I need the motivation to start” etc., etc., etc. The problem with all of this isn’t that they are not valid points. The problem is all of them are excuses that delay you from ever starting. The truth is you are never going to feel 100% ready or prepared. The hard fact is you may suck at what you’re doing at first, but at least you are doing something. You just putting into action what you want to do gets the motors running. You can always get better at something; however, you can never get back that missed opportunity you could have taken.
If any of this sounds familiar to you I want to encourage you to do that thing. That goal you have been putting off because of some excuse. Only you know what that thing is. I just want you to remember you were given that dream for a reason. You were given it because you are the person who can accomplish it. You are the one who can make it a reality. All you have to do is put action towards it. Put in the work and the dreams you desire will not be that far away.
Much love like always,
