As Salaamu Alaikum
Have you ever noticed that sometimes you know exactly what you want?
In fact, you’ve been thinking and even dreaming of it for a very long time.
And then, it just remains a dream.
You don’t take action on it and it just becomes one of the many things that cross your mind and remains a conversation in your head.
What causes us to hold back on doing things we already know we want to do?
Sometimes it’s fear.
Fear that you won’t be able to achieve your goal. Fear that it will be too hard to accomplish. Fear that you won’t have the resources to finish. Fear that you may fail once you start.
Sometimes it’s due to a habit of procrastination.
Sometimes it’s because deep down you’ve really not decided and it’s really not a non-negotiable.
Regardless of why you may be holding back starting something important in your life, I want to help you today.
So, here’s the ground-breaking advice: Just Start!
Yep, that’s it.
Just take the next step.
The next step may involve having a conversation, asking a question, doing an internet search, or signing up for or unsubscribing from something.
Whatever that next step is, the important part is that you actually do it.
You don’t have to have it all figured out.
You don’t even have to know what the second subsequent step is.
You just have to be clear and certain about the direction you are headed and take some sort of action in alignment with your bigger goal.
Today I finally took action on something I’ve been wanting to do for a few years.
And guess what?
It was a little scary, it did have its challenges, and it’s done.
And do you want to know what’s even better?
I now have a plan moving forward of a roadmap to the goal I wanted to achieve.
All because Alhamdulilah I took action.
Tell me, what are you going to take action on today?
Let me know something that you’ve been desiring to achieve or that has been an idea in the back of your mind that you’re ready to take action on.
Remember, you just need to take the next step.
When you’ve done it, let me know what you did and how everything worked out.
Keep moving forward.
