Everyone struggles to take action every now and again. Life is busy and we can easily forget the important tasks that need to be done to complete our goals. And, that is OK. We are not always going to stay on target. There are many times that I feel lost and then have to refocus my energy to get back to the goal at hand. The key is to always get back on track.
To help you get back on track, here are quotes to motivate you to take action.
"While we are postponing, life speeds by." - Seneca
No pressure here, remember this though when you are taking a break. Even if you want to take a break, give yourself a limit to how long the break can be. Say, you are going on vacation and you want a break from organizing your bedroom. Make a commitment to yourself to organize the corner of the space when you return. Add it to your calendar for a specific date and time to remind you.
You'll never leave where you are until you decide where you'd rather be. ~ Unknown
Be realistic with yourself. You are not going to move forward unless you have a plan. Go somewhere quiet like a short weekend away alone to your favorite area and write down what your goals are for your work, your family, and your personal life.
"A goal should scare you a little & excite you A LOT." ~Joe Vital
There is a fine line between a unachievable goal and one that you can achieve but may scare you a little. Think of a goal that is outrageous in your mind. Are there steps you can see to get to this outrageous goal? Can you see the steps? Define the scary steps. And, determine what you can do to make it less scary. Write them down.
"We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish." - Tony Robbins
Remember that you are not a victim. You are a powerful being and only you can change your life.
"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated." - Confucius
Thinking too much will stop you from taking action. While thinking is OK, make sure it doesn't stop you from doing what you want to do with your life.
"You live but once; you might as well be amusing." – Coco Chanel
Keep life lighthearted. Sadness happens, it's a part of life. Look for those joys and gratitude in your life that makes you want to achieve and concur your goals.
