Taking Action: The Key To Success!
To achieve your goals, you must eventually stop planning and begin taking action. Do you have goals that exceed your current abilities? It is normal to fantasize about things you wish you could do but cannot at the moment.
While planning is a vital component of making your dreams a reality, you should not devote more time to mental preparation than taking action. When will you actually begin to live if you spend your entire life planning for the future?
Use the following techniques to jumpstart your goal-achieving actions:
- Actions are more persuasive than words. Surely you’ve heard this statement before, but have you considered its significance? Future planning is less effective than taking action and accomplishing goals. Start taking action in the right direction while planning, rather than waiting until every detail is complete.
- Keep in mind that you can achieve your objectives as long as you’re moving forward. Depending on the size of your objective, it may take some time, but moving forward will get you where you want to be. Taking action, however small, propels you forward.
- Consider the vocabulary you employ. Which phrase is more powerful: “I will lose weight” or “I am losing weight”? What is the distinction between “I intend to attend school” and “I am currently attending school”? The differences between these statements may have a significant bearing on whether you are actually going somewhere or merely considering it.
- Try out: Instead of saying “I’m going to lose weight” (which you could say for years without losing a pound! ), take action to lose a few pounds and then say, “I’ve lost a few pounds and I’m still going!”
- Divide objectives into smaller chunks. Rather than creating a lengthy plan that will take several years to complete, why not divide your objectives into smaller, more manageable chunks? Setting goals that are too far in the future can hinder your ability to take small steps in the right direction right now.
- For instance, suppose you wish to lose 100 pounds. Try setting weekly goals to lose 1% of your body weight until you reach your ultimate goal. Achieving multiple weight loss goals over time will help keep you motivated, rather than focusing on a single distant objective.
- You may wish to accomplish something over time, such as graduating from college in four years. You can then divide your objectives into quarters or semesters. This will help you feel a sense of accomplishment as you work toward the larger objective of earning a degree.
Occasionally, it can be difficult to gain the momentum necessary to achieve goals and advance in life. Raise your standards and demand action from yourself rather than just words.
If you find it difficult to transition from planning to actual accomplishment, try breaking your goals into smaller chunks. You’ll be surprised at how motivating a small amount of success can be!
