(Continued from part 5: Expectations)
You’ve got it all: the vision, knowledge, belief in yourself, positive thoughts, and you’re ready to act. So, you get ready, get set, get set, get set…
Why is it so hard sometime to just get going? Why do you find yourself coming up with new excuses? Why are you second-guessing yourself? You’re thinking maybe you are not smart enough, don’t have enough money, or don’t feel you deserve to succeed. If this is the case, you must first work on yourself and the best way is to get going, face your fear, and prove to yourself that you have what it takes.
If You Dream a Dream It’s Possible
Creating a vision is an action. It starts the process, but you can’t stop there otherwise it’s just wishful thinking. We live in a creative universe and that’s what we were designed to do. It’s in our DNA to Dream, Note that dream, and Act on it. I firmly believe that we would not have a vision or inspiring dream unless it were possible for us to achieve it. The reason is we are all different, have different talents, and want different things. So if you are dragging your feet, Stop! Take the first step. Do something, even a little something everyday. If you don’t act, all the work you’ve done so far is for naught. Nobody can read the book unpublished, watch the play without an ending, or enjoy the song unfinished.
But, What If Something Is Still Missing?
But let’s assume that you have achieved all of the elements in our success formula, that you have visualized the outcome, that you have the knowledge you need to start, and that you are motivated by the right thoughts and expectations. Now what? Check out the one thing that can derail any dream or plan in my series on Dream Derailers . It is so critical that if you don’t take it into consideration, failure is assured.
