Theodore Roosevelt once said: "In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing." As we begin 2020, we have the opportunity to change the patterns of the past, and create something new in our lives. Set a big, exciting goal and go for it!
Your goal may be to change careers, overcome a health issue, take a trip, or find love...it can be anything. By creating specific, time-bound goals and taking daily action steps toward their achievement, you will see your vision begin to take form.
In last week's blog post we talked about creating "S.M.A.R.T" goals to start the new Year off on the right foot. The next step is to do 3 things each day that move you toward your goal. These do not have to be huge, just 3 things to keep the momentum moving in the right direction.
Often, people start out inspired by great ideas, but when faced with uncertainty about how to begin, they are tempted to procrastinate, overthink, or wait for “better timing.” Some of the most successful people in the world lacked formal education, financial backing, and “perfect” timing. They achieved their goals because they relentlessly took action until they achieved their vision. Even very small consistent effort will allow you to tap into the energy that creates results.
Take a look at where you want to go this year and do three things each day to move you there. I wish you all the best, you can do this!
