One of the most difficult parts of goal achievement is simply getting started.
It’s easy enough to dream and plan, but many people get stuck in this phase indefinitely and avoid taking action.
Planning and dreaming might make you feel like you’re doing something about your goals, but if you never actually take a step forward you’ll never achieve them.
In order to see measurable progress, you have to step out of your comfort zones and take action.
When you finally do gather your courage and begin moving forward, what usually happens?
You realize it’s WAY harder than you thought it would be, right?
It feels like you’re trying to run uphill.
You keep tripping over obstacles, facing setbacks and delays, dealing with fear and anxiety, and fighting a daily battle to stay motivated.
It’s during this difficult phase that most people give up.
They decide that “it isn’t meant to be” right now, so they set their dream aside and vow to try again later.
Or worse, they resign themselves to a mediocre life because they don’t believe they have what it takes to succeed.
They’ve “failed,” so they’re not going to try any more.
Have you done this? Most people have!
