Only a select few manage to get close to living their dream lifestyles, and doing the things they truly enjoy. Most people have a dream and would like to live a better lifestyle, but are too busy to take action.
They set goals and make promises to themselves and their families that they are going to create a better lifestyle. As the days progress, the goals and dreams fade away.
What’s The Real Reason For Unaccomplished Goals?
The number one reason for unaccomplished goals is inaction. You need to take the first action step towards accomplishing your goal to start the process of attaining it.
Some people would like to get a better job or change careers. Maybe they would like to get a job that pays better wages. They think about it for days, most of the time they don’t get around to really finding out what it takes to get the job they desire.
Sometimes they go as far as finding out about the qualifications and skills required for their desire career. Most people seem to stop after this stage. They start making excuses like “I don’t have the time to do anything about it now, I’ll leave it for next year. I’ll wait until my current difficult situations in life have been resolved…”.
The truth is that you will always find excuses. The secret is to take immediate action and break free from your excuses.
If you want to change your career and need to gain some additional skills and qualifications, enrol yourself on a course and start working towards getting them.
The first action steps are necessary to break you out of your current routine. We are all creatures of habit, it is difficult to break out of routines. The most successful people in the world have mastered the process of replacing unproductive habits with productive habits.
Most people spend time watching 3 to 4 hours or even more of TV daily. Some surf on the internet moving from site to site, video to video without any real goal. Social media has also taken a massive chunk out of people’s lives.
If you are truly satisfied with your job, income and family life, you can continue to carry on with your daily routine.
If you desire to change your current circumstance, you will need to take immediate action to initiate the change. Cut out the time you spend on unproductive habits and replace them with habits that will move you closer to your chosen goal.
The longer you take in taking action, the harder it will become. Once you have a plan of action drawn up, take immediate action towards getting things done.
Even the process of creating a plan is not going to get done if you don’t take action. You need to be sure of what you desire, create a plan and take immediate action.
Don’t waste too much of your time thinking about doing what you need to do. As soon as you know what needs to be done, do it immediately.
This process of taking immediate action will set you apart from the masses. You will get more done and have more of the things you desire.
Do it now, don’t put it off for tomorrow, take the first step now.
