“Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you ready or not, to put this plan into action.” -Napoleon Hill
If you always do what you’ve done, you’ll always get what you’ve got. You know that you have a number of things that you must accomplish, however you are not exactly sure what your plan of attack would be. One thing is for certain, the absolute last thing you will want to do is end up procrastinating until it is too late. Sometimes you really just have to take the bull by the horns in order to get the ball rolling. Unfortunately, some of the time this may mean jumping first and thinking about the consequences later on. This is where the term ‘ready, fire, aim’ comes into play.
While it may not make sense to you at first, sometimes you have to just do something and then worry later on if you made the right decision or not. Half of the time, battles are fought and won on the fly. The great thing is that in life, you have the ability to try and fix your mistakes should anything go wrong. As a human being, you can make quick decisions and adjust accordingly.
“The way we get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” -Walt Disney
You will learn rather quickly that you will end up becoming your own worst enemy the more that you procrastinate. Taking charge and diving in head first will allow you to get a head start on something you may want to hold off for a long time. You have to almost think of it as quickly ripping off a band-aid. Since you know that it is going to hurt, you will find yourself babying it and pulling it off a little bit at a time. Instead, you can take action and pull it off quickly. Now you can relax and get on with something else! In life, you must try to think way beyond what you think your limits will be. You need to know how to take chances or you will end up going through life never knowing and always wondering what could have been. You are responsible for your own actions and when it comes to your destiny, you are the only person in your driver’s seat. Sure, there will be bumps in the road, but you will have to take them one by one as they come your way. You cannot go throughout your life walking on eggshells afraid of what may happen next or you are never going to go anywhere.
As an individual, you set your path. It really does not matter what order you achieve the steps along the way as long as your end results are what you have been longing for. After all, if you have three different animals standing side by side, even if you change the order that they are in you still have three different animals standing side by side.
Learning to roll with the punches is all a part of life. When you can recognize your dreams and fight for them until you are happy and successful, then you are already ahead of the game. Throughout this learning process, you will gain useful skills that you can implement to help others in your life as well.
Norman Vincent Peale said …“Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.”
Think about it … nothing you do will ever be perfect; so don’t wait until it is. Go for what you want or you may find yourself waiting forever to start and end up accomplishing nothing. Take action now!
