Action Is A Key Part to Achieving Your Goals
Over the course of the past few weeks you’ve been introduced to the concept of being the person that you would like to be. You start to begin “being,” this will lead you to an interesting place. You will either be taking action or not taking action.
The ideology is simple: Being and doing creates having. “Doing” is the critical link between “being” and “having.” You must “do” in order to “have.”
The word doing does not really need a lot of definition. Doing means action and taking steps toward your goals. Once you start to understand your beliefs and your thoughts and once you know what it is you want to be and who you want to become… Once you are clear on your goals and your dreams and begin living those very visions in your mind… You will have opened the door to action.
Action usually begins when you put the initial thought and energy out there. Your next step might be researching the activities that you want to do or might be networking or meeting people or in the area of your interest you want to become part of. It could be signing up for a workshop or seminar within that area of interest. It could even be researching the career position you wish to hold and finding out how to get there.
When you take an initial action, it does not mean that you have to actually climb the entire mountain by next Saturday. When someone decides to climb a mountain they just don’t decide to show up at the trailhead one day with a couple of power bars in their back pocket and a couple bottles of water.
You start with making a plan and taking several small steps months in advance. For example, you begin to change your diet and incorporate exercise that will increase your cardio endurance. Then you start to research the equipment that you will need to climb the mountain and the shoes you need. You research those who have climbed mountains and start to read what they of one through and how to prepare yourself mentally for it.
The thing I want you to understand is that it is not the size of the step that gets you there. It’s the fact that you’re taking the initial step that matters.
