How To Take Action

 How to take action

Believe in yourself.

“I can and I will.”

Believing in yourself is crucial. You have to believe you can do whatever it is you’re trying to do. Insecurity will kill every dream if you let it. When you believe you can do something – you take action.

Don’t be afraid to fail.

“It’s all experience.”

A few years back, I was out with a friend while having a rough period with my then-girlfriend. I shared the situation with him and he told me something that still helps me with any let-down, he said – “It’s all experience”. And he’s right! If you tried and failed, that’s okay, you now have more experience for the next time you find yourself in a similar spot, and now you know what not to do, which is just as important as knowing what to do.

Make a plan.

What do you need to do to achieve your goal? What are the steps you need to take?

Make a plan and write it down, then start taking action.

Set small goals.

Achieving one big goal is consistently achieving smaller goals.

It’s like planting a tree, watering it every day until you get fruit.

Set deadlines.

Having a deadline will motivate you to stay on track and take action.

Take these deadlines very seriously and hold yourself accountable.

Take action when you don’t feel like it.

Sometimes the hard part is just getting started. Force yourself to do one small task to get the ball rolling. Once you feel the accomplishment from completing the first task, you will be more motivated to tackle more work.

The world keeps spinning even if you don’t take action.

If you woke up with a minor headache and thought you could skip work today, the world will keep spinning.

Your competitors might steal your clients this day because you were unavailable or not reaching out.

Nothing stops the world from spinning, regardless of what day it is for you.

Remove distractions.

When you want to get work done, you want to be as efficient as possible. You don’t want your aunt calling you when you’re in the middle of something. That is why you should silence your phone or turn it off in advance.

You might also want to be alone in the room to concentrate on your work without anyone talking or making noise.

Time management.

It's important to know how to manage your time to be more productive.

Find a partner.

Have someone who is or was in a similar position as you. Your partner should support you, motivate you, and hold you accountable.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

There’s nothing shameful in asking for help. We’re all human, trying to better ourselves in some way or another. That complicated task you’re trying to complete might have an easy solution. Reach out, ask for help, and grow your skills.

Be patient.

If you’re mad that you don’t have the success that others who are way ahead of you do, this is your first mistake. Do not compare yourself or your work with some who is already well-established. Overnight success isn’t real. Stay patient. 


Now this is a no-brainer -- if you want something to work out, you must keep going.

You tried, it was tough, you failed -- is this how the story ends? Back to procrastinating?No way!

If you believe this is your journey, you keep going, even out of spite.

Reward yourself for your progress.

Take a moment to reflect on your progress, where you were a month ago, and how far you got. If you are content with your results, give yourself a day off, and enjoy some free time to clear your head and keep going strong.

Final thoughts.
