Are you living your ideal life? Are you one of those individuals who had huge dreams, but for whatever reason did not take action. If you said yes, then probabilities are that you are not alone. For various reasons, a large number of people do not fulfill their dreams and ambitions.
Here are some suggestions to help you get back on the right path:
Procrastination: Do you procrastinate? Well, procrastination is one of those killers that can delay the action without feeling guilty. To avoid this write down in detail of the plan and follow suit. When I wrote my first book, it took me about three years to start. One day, I said to myself if I do not finish the book in six months, then I am going to give a certain amount of money to a person who I am not fond of. (The book was written and published in five months)
What if I Fail: I truly believe that we often learn from our mistakes because that is how we grow and move forward. Grant yourself permission to fail because otherwise you will rarely try anything new. Failure is only in your mind because next time you will actually know what to do or what not to do to succeed. Hold this idea is your head, whenever something goes amiss, you have not failed, only the concept has gone bad. Do not get the two elements mixed up.
Time Limit: If you are going to incorporate something into your life, then it is vital that you give yourself a time limit as to when you are going to start and finish. I know individuals who always wanted to write a book or get into the gym, and that apparently never comes about. Once you have decided to do something, then write down what steps you are going to take.
Accountability: You need to ask yourself, why am I doing it? Once you know the answer to this question, then you need to hold yourself accountable. You may want to inform people in your life, who are not judgmental, but rather supportive of your effort. And get them to hold you accountable.
