In other words take action! This has to be one of the most common sense, yet simple quotes; one that I passionately feel should be at the forefront of your mind if you are in a position of truly wish to make some changes.
Over the course of the last three years (close enough) I’ve had a number of conversations with people looking to do ‘something’ online, but due to lack of experience, perhaps lack of confidence have never had the gumption to take the bull by the horns and take action.
The fact is that making changes, regardless of ‘what the change is, entails experiencing something brand new!
For example: Have you ever applied for a new position at work? If so, there’s a pretty good change you have NEVER done anything like it before. Yet you go into it as a babe in the woods, learn the skills and in most cases go on to grow into the position almost as if it were second nature.
If that analogy isn’t good enough… how about learning a dance routine? It would be easy to make excuses and say, ‘oh I can’t dance, I’ve never performed before, don’t think I could learn the steps”.
The reality is, you would start training, become more in tune, in shape, more familiar with your body and your abilities, and eventually, you would reach the point where the challenge was not as exhausting and you’d likely put on a pretty good show!.
Ok… maybe not the best analogy… but enough to get the message across!
What is important to keep at the forefront of your mind, is that in order to create any type of change, whether it’s starting a business in online marketing, training for a new position, or learning any new skill, in order to get to where you want to be it is crucial you take action to make any changes at all.
Taking action does not mean you have to take ‘perfect action’… just DO SOMETHING! Make a start, you will improve. Things get easier with practice and familiarity.
The world is constantly changing. There are always things to learn, things to polish, things to improve upon, but nothing will ever change if you’re a sitting duck.
Stop making excuses. Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can. For goodness sake, take action towards your goals!
