I’ll be the first to admit that there’s definitely more to life than websites, the internet and succeeding online. Sure those things are important but sometimes we all need a reminder that “real life” is where it’s at. From time to time I like to venture off the beaten path of writing articles about websites and cover another topic.
This article is a “challenge” of sorts. No, it’s not another ice-bucket challenge. It’s more along the lines of you challenging you. It’s about starting something that you’ve put off for far too long. It’s something near and dear to your heart and something that you’ll soon see beginning to materialize in your life if you follow through. It’s about taking action on that which you really want in your life.
Get a piece of paper and jot down five things that you have been thinking about for some time but, for whatever reason, have not been able to actualize in your life. Just the writing of these 5 items alone is the starting point.
The main reason you haven’t completed what you say you would like to is that you have refused to begin by seizing the moment. All the excuses are just that, excuses.
Now, regardless of how much resistance you may feel, do nothing but begin action on the first item. Do this for the next four days for each of the other items. Do not make a commitment to finish the project, simply commit to start it.
Stop the excuses you have come to rely on to explain why you don’t get the really important things accomplished in your life. The main reason you haven’t completed what you say you would like to is that you have refused to begin by seizing the moment. All the excuses are just that, excuses. In your heart you know this is true.
Surround yourself with doers. Be around people who demonstrate their boldness. Remove yourself physically from those who encourage you to wallow in your excuses and explanations.
