As a business owner, you already know how being afraid of making a decision can stop others from being successful. If you were to force yourself to make just a couple of small decisions a day, you will move ahead immediately with more confidence and accomplishment.
You can see your way because once you commit to taking action, you are creating it. You are determining the steps that need to occur to get to the place you desire.
What we are talking about here is taking actions toward a decision, and not merely a choice. A simple decision is simply saying, "I want to buy that desk." a more detailed decision is when you have committed to going to that seminar that you have been wanting to attend for the past year. You have also committed yourself to complete that project you have been putting off.
When you say, "I want to do this" you are framing yourself to take a course of action. The choice word is "do". You are learning how that action looks when you get there, and that gives you the right to do it.
But how do we translate this into what we are talking about above? What makes it, as we say, tangible is so very important for success. What are we doing that makes it happen in life and business? Here are some tips for you to consider.
1. Live in complete confidence and determination
Have you ever had to go up above you and create what was going to happen when you were right there? Let's consider that. Instead of going into your future, the thing you say is "I want to do this"- this entails discovering as much about what it is you want to do as if it were already happening. You are creating something from nothing; instead of leaving it to chance.
That is another way to say, "I want to get into the act." You are living in faith, and you are doing everything you can to make it happen.
It might take some time to overlook the actions before you make one, but in the end, it will prove to be far easier. If you do everything with complete confidence, you will be able to do some things more than others.
With confidence, you will be able to have faith in what you are doing. You will have answers that will make getting your business off the ground easier since it has all occurred to you that you can make it work.
2. "You're halfway there"
When you start down the path of making a decision or change you want to take, you need to keep moving. Make it a goal to accomplish about one step every week and see where you're going at the end of that. That is normal and it keeps you moving forward. But did you realize that if you were holding your hand up high and looking ahead, that the things you wanted to do included a lot of the things you were already planning on doing? If you were to take steps that were not set in stone, you would do it quicker. You would only have to do one thing at a time and get it done. The rest will come easier.
What we are talking about here is taking small actions towards a specific goal, and not getting stuck on doing all kinds of things that you might not even do, and just letting it happen.
3. Work often and baby step ahead
Making time for yourself to take action seems like work to be done, but it is so much more than that. If you are so busy thinking about what you should do, you are not going to have time to plan or put it into your calendar. Take several minutes to plan and schedule those actions that you want to have when they are most needed. You will be able to avoid procrastination because if you have already determined what needs to happen and is holding off on the action, you will be less apt to procrastinate. When you do it, do it.
So don't wait. You have it within you and the fear is all in your head. Get over it. No one else will wait for you. It doesn't mean you don't have to do it. It just means that it needs to be done, and you need to be a force for good that it will occur.
Don't allow yourself to procrastinate, see every day as a new adventure, and get your business growing in no time at all.
