I am going to share with you the single most important thing you can do to help yourself get going. You can start right now. It’s time to stop dreaming and start doing!
Are you someone that has a dream, a really awesome amazing dream floating around in your head, but you just don’t know how to turn it into a reality. Or perhaps your dream is pretty well formulated and specific and you know exactly what you want for yourself, but you just haven’t done anything about it yet.
Well, if so then this article is for you!
I’m going to share with you the single most important thing you can do today to stop dreaming and starting doing.
What is that thing you ask?
Take action. That’s it. It sounds simple and guess what the good news is that it is simple!
The biggest problem I see with women that are trying to achieve a goal or dream is that they feel just plain stuck, and not knowing what to do usually prevents us from doing anything at all.
Staying stuck will stop you from ever realizing your dream. Waiting for perfection or clarity on what to do is what stops people from actually doing things. You’re not alone, this is totally normal, we’re hard wired as humans to be cautious and when uncertain, to gather more information before making big decisions. But I can assure you that this natural human tendency will crush your dreams and prevent you from ever getting to that place you want to be if you let it.
So what do you do about it…you take action. That is really the simple solution and the most important step in getting what you want. Just start somewhere, wherever you are today, just start and keep taking consistent action day after day toward your goal and I promise you the path you need to take will present itself.
One of the mantras I live by is, Action Brings Clarity, and I truly believe this. Every time I have a goal in my life that I’m trying to achieve and find myself unsure of what to do next, I will just say to myself, well action brings clarity, and then I pick something and just do it. This always leads me to the answers I was searching for or many times a solution I didn’t even realize existed. Just taking even a tiny action helps bring clarity to your dream.
I actually speak about this in detail and share tips on how to decide what specific actions to take in a free audio training I created called “How to turn any goal into reality, NOW!”. Click the link if you’re interested. Can’t wait for you to listen!
But first let’s talk a little more about why it’s important to stop dreaming and start doing. We all have ideas that we can’t shake right? For me it’s a long list of inventions I someday want to create, it’s my business, its goals and dreams for my family, it's ideas of how I can incorporate more generosity into my life...and the list goes on and on. (and on and on!)
My dreams are my own and they’re unique to me and so are yours. But why does it even matter if we follow through with them? Well, the truth is that there never ever has been another person like you on this earth and there never ever will be. You are a unique one of a kind person with unique one of a kind gifts and talents. It’s true! If using those gifts and talents to live out your dreams can make the lives of others better in some way then it's your obligation to see it through.
This can be as simple as creating a product or service that makes someone’s life easier, it can be going for that promotion so you can provide more fully for your family, it can be doing something that places you in a position to help or entertain people. It doesn’t matter what it is, just know that you’re here for a reason and perhaps this dream you’re not acting on is that reason. These thoughts are in your head for a purpose. You may never know who you help or inspire through living out your dreams, but you need to know that it matters. As you start doing things that make you feel more passionate and joyful, it will become easier to do more of those things. That is when the clarity comes, after you begin to take some action.
So I’d say it's time to get started! And remember the single most important thing to help you stop dreaming and start doing is to take action. Any action at all, just start. Its doesn’t have to be a huge step, just take a step today.
