Action

Story of my life!  Always having ideas, always thinking of different ways of doing things, creating things and as quickly as they come, they go. And then to make it worse, years later I see that idea, I think to myself, hey they stole my idea! There it is, on a shelf at the store and I know, if I had only taken ACTION, maybe just maybe that would have been my product on the shelf. If only.

So many of us are guilty of just that. We want change, we are eager for change and yet we don't take the action necessary to implement that change within ourselves.  We are not able to take that first step to action. Why?

Most likely fear. That fear of failure. Fear of success. Fear of the change and not be able to handle it. Fear that others will judge us. Oh, that dam fear!  It can be paralyzing! 

I have had fear overcome me.  My fear of heights. Stuck inside of an elevator at the top of the Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas!  My body felt paralzyed. It was awful and embarassing to say the least. And yet, I decided  that I could let this fear overcome me and ruin this moment or take ACTION and move forward.  I did. I took on step towards the door, and then another.  Slowly I made my way to the exit. I was on the ledge. Guess what? It was absolutely breathtaking! To think I would have missed that, because I let fear stop me from taking action!

I realized that has been what I have been doing for a long time. Imagining the worse and letting my fear stop me from doing some amazing things. Missing out on life.

Unfortunately, its the culprit that has stopped so many in their tracks from success, from becoming healthier, becoming wealthier, and becoming a happier. So how do we change that fear? How do we get rid of it? Well you can't get rid of it, but you can control it, or let it control you. Your choice.

 



​​I found that the most important thing to begin to get a handle on your fear and to learn to take action is:
Be aware that it is fear that is stopping you. If its not fear, then what is it?  Ask yourself, and be honest. 

Do you have limiting beliefs of yourself, or your abilities. If that is the case, then what do you need to be able to succeed?  Start off small.  A famous quote I absolutely love is:

 "Complexity is the enemy of Execution"

Do not make it difficult.  Make things easy, and you will find that you can slowly conquer your fear and begin to take steps to change.  Make the choice to take the first step to ACTION!
