This is a big question for many people. They have a goal, dream, or aspiration, know why they want to accomplish this, and have great passion around it. However, they don’t take action. It’s clearly not a lack of desire, much more not knowing where to start and/or not feeling comfortable proceeding.
I saw this obstacle blocking a friend’s success (and happiness). He set mini-goals and continually failed to achieve them – creating disappointment, frustration, and a chipping away of his confidence. When we chatted, it was clear to both of us that those mini-goals weren’t small enough. So he regrouped and decided to start with an action that could be completed in less than an hour. When he did so, that start gave him more confidence, drive, and an expanded sense of competence.
Have a great day,
