You either rise to the challenge or you don’t.
Which will you do – rise and excel?
Will you do nothing or the same things you have always done and get what you have always received or get even less?
What will you become if you do act?
You need to make the decision to accept the challenge of achieving your goals.
You have set them for yourself. Act accordingly to make them happen. Put the action items in your calendar, plan each day the night before, have a to do list of high priority activities in place to accomplish your goals and do them. Get a routine in place and make it a habit. If you want time, you need to make it – you won’t find it. Your calendar is gateway to success.
Too often I hear excuses of why something cannot be done. Stop with the excuses and start making things happen. It is a choice. It is easy to do nothing it is hard to make a change, accept the challenge and become better. You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them.
The critical thing you need to realize is you have to start. Whatever you need to do to take the first step to success and achievement. Put down the fork, go to the gym, make the call, go to the networking event, hold the open house, blog, do videos, visit with your past clients, just do the activity. Whatever the goal you want to attain needs to start with “a first step”. What is your first step? Why? What happens if you don’t take it? More importantly, what happens if you do? Life is full of choices – make the right ones to get you moving in a positive direction and get you out of your rut.
Important things to remember are to not overestimate the competition and do not underestimate yourself. You are better than you think. By doing the activities required for success, you will develop the skills, mental toughness and ability to forge ahead when things get difficult. By taking action you gain confidence in your abilities, you stretch outside your comfort zone and you learn.
Will you make mistakes? Yes.
Will it be difficult at times? Yes.
Will it kill you? NO.
So stop wasting time and move forward and grow from what you have learned. Go out and make your own luck.
You have set your goals – do what it takes to make them happen. You wouldn’t have written them out if you didn’t expect them to happen. Life is changing rapidly, daily and you need to adjust to become better and make your dreams come true. It is so important to increase your level of commitment so you can overcome the frustrations you have had with your previous results. Doing nothing to change to improve yourself is actually regressing. Regression is not an option. Take the appropriate action required. Now is the time. Procrastination is over and 2015 is the time to start to make something more of yourself. Get it? Got it? Good!
Now, go sell something!
