Would you rather wish and want or start and fail?
I’ve heard many sentences that start the same way “I always wanted to start my own _________ business”. And directly after that I hear a list of fears that overpower potential and transform ambitions into distant wishes.
To get where we want to be, we have to plan and act on those plans.
In order to act on our big goals, we have to be ready to face the fear of failure and move forward. Easier to say it than it is to do it, I know.
However, to think about how every day that passes is a day we could have put energy into our wishes, slowly turning them into realities is a far better feeling than just wanting our businesses that we never start and beating ourselves up for being afraid and not having what we want and deserve.
On a brighter note, we have all the tools we need to at least start on our dreams.
Taking control and actually acting on our plans is a step. We have the freedom of choice. We have the authority to make decisions for ourselves.
My Control action item is reading self-improvement articles on Medium instead of scrolling through Instagram.
If we stay committed to ourselves and to achieving the milestones and goals we set for ourselves we can get to our divine destination. In other words, staying persistent, day in and day out is better than wanting and wishing instead of showing up with action.
My Commitment action item is aligning and partnering with friends and colleagues working on projects where it is a must I pull my weight consistently to bring the project to completion.
We have all witnessed the power of consistency. We have watched people become great at what they once were terrible at through daily practice. Constantly working on our crafts, dreams, and goals gets us one step closer to the success we see for ourselves.
My Consistency action item is to work on myself every day through reading, meditation, design, diet, and communication to become an improved person which will yield better results pertaining to reaching personal and professional goals.
What new methods have been working for you in how you’ve been designing your life and moving closer to your perception of success?
