Everything starts with a decision. Moving forward is a conscious choice. Choose to take action, no matter how big or small. Create a plan and stick to it, despite how you feel. Simply put, be consistent.
At times you may know what do to and the steps to take, but what you can do seems insignificant. So, you freeze. Rather than do what you can, you choose to do nothing.
If you commit to small steps and spend even as little as 5-10 minutes daily, you’ll be encouraged to invest even more time. Taking action will eventually turn into a habit. Regularity will translate into progress.
Even if you move forward with constancy, others may not notice. Moreover, they may not share the same passion and enthusiasm. Stand firm despite reactions from those around you. Inspire Yourself to Action, independent of what society says and with or without positive affirmation from friends and family. If you wait for others’ approval, you’ll be waiting a long, long time.
Forward progress leads to change. Whenever there’s a feeling that you have to change, it’s likely that you’ll experience some discomfort. Acknowledge these feelings as real and say to yourself, I will press forward no matter what. I resolve to take action, no matter how big or small. Even if what I can do feels insignificant, I’m going to do something. I’m more determined than ever to do whatever it takes to make it happen.
Strength needs to come from within. Don’t depend on motivation from others. You are your own best advocate. Do whatever it takes. Cheer yourself on. Inspire Yourself to Action.
If you’re ready to make a commitment to yourself, let’s talk.
