Want to Make Changes? Then Take Action
If you change nothing then nothing changes. That’s logical common sense isn’t it? You would think so.
Most of us at any given time want to make some type of change to enhance our lives – a new job, get fit, lose weight, save money, improve relationships, etc, etc….. But if we don’t take action, then nothing will change.
We can daydream about what we want to achieve all we like – and if you’re a planner like me, you may even create goals and develop a beautiful looking action plan to help start making our desired changes a reality; but the real reality is that unless we actually do something and take real action then nothing happens, and therefore nothing will change. Action plans are a great first step, but we must actually do something with them!
Why am I bringing this up? I’ll be honest and I have a confession, I very recently realised I wasn’t taking action on one of the things I had set for myself to achieve this year. I created a goal around my desired change, I developed a plan, yet I wasn’t getting any closer to achieving – and then I realised I wasn’t really doing anything purposeful to achieve this particular goal; I wasn’t taking action!
I’m not sure if I was being a little bit naïve and was waiting for the “change fairy” to grace me with her presence, wave her magic wand in my direction and create the change I desired…. What was probably more likely was that I was caught up in the fear of changing and that was what was holding me back, as sometimes it feels a bit easier if we just keep things the same doesn’t it? Does this really serve us and help us in the long term though – NO it doesn’t!
So, if you are one of us who want to make some changes this year, my advice to you is fight the fear and take action! And if you don’t know what action to take just do something, anything, as these small steps create momentum – and progress will be created, even if you don’t realise it at the time.
Take action today to create those amazing changes you have been dreaming of. I know you can do it.
