I’m really talking to myself today! Have you ever wanted to do something but found every excuse in the world why you shouldn’t start yet!
That’s been me for months…I want to write, to share my knowledge…but can’t seem to get started! This popped up on FB this morning and it hit me hard! Gads…just start…
I have decades of “living the simple life” experience, I love to learn and I read almost every day, I think often of days gone by, the things I’ve learned from my grandparents, parents and so many others who have been a part of my 70 years of life! So today I’m starting….with one paragraph…then another and another!
For the past few months I have been devouring Brendon Burchards’ book, High Performance Habits. The first chapter is about Clarity…knowing what you want out of life and having a specific plan to accomplish that! It warms my heart to see so many people wanting to get out of the rat race that seems to have sucked us in. I did not grow up in the rat race because my parents would not allow it…but as an adult with a family of my own…I found myself being dragged into it! I wanted out! So…I started a home based business and gradually worked myself out of that insane rat race. Every day I had to START…START to learn something new…START to implement the things that would get me where I wanted to be! And guess what…I’m still STARTING…every day…learning, listening and implementing.
Today I woke up to a list of things I need to do in town, 30 miles away. My plan was to leave early so I could get them all done. I checked my business page online and came across the above post. It hit me hard. I knew if I stuck with my plan, another day would go by and my dream/goal to write every day would be put off another day. I would continue to stress about it another day, another week, another month and I would be not closer to my goal.
I sat down at my computer
I STARTED to write
And you can do it too! START by making a list of the things you want to accomplish, the things you want to learn! Everyday do at least one small thing that gets you closer to your goal.
