Kim Peterson, CEO CommonSenseHealth.org
Humans are interesting, aren’t we?
We say we want things...really badly...like a new job or career, to lose weight, find the right partner, raise our kids with all the benefits which we may not have had, move into that great neighborhood, start your dream business...and the list goes on.
We may even start to look into what it will take to make it happen...but stop there.
If you’ve achieved any level of what success means to you, you’ve followed through completely to make it happen. When a goal seems to align with what we believe we are capable of, then the achievement is not all that far of a stretch.
It may be a challenge to finish your education, land a good job, buy a home etc. but you do it. On the other hand, when you are faced with something completely out of your comfort zone...maybe it’s writing a book, moving across the country or outside of the country for a better opportunity, leaving one career path for something completely different...the rules change a bit, don’t they?
Our path may become a little less clear (how in THE WORLD am I going to pull that off?) and uncertain (there’s NO WAY I’ll ever hit that goal, it’s never been done before).
That is when procrastination and fear can absolutely DESTROY positive momentum forward...DON’T let this happen to you!
When you are procrastinating because of the fact that you are stepping completely into the unknown, rather than the “I just don’t feel like doing it.” type, you really need to bring your mojo in order to overcome.
The good news is you’ve already done this...but now it’s time to click it up a notch or two, then get you going on autopilot, so that every future challenge or goal becomes easier and easier to achieve.
When your mind wanders to things like ...I can’t do this because… I don’t have the money, I don’t have the self-confidence, I have no idea how...STOP IT & DROP IT! Those types of thoughts will keep you stuck and stagnant forever.
Instead...take yourself to the place in your mind where you have already accomplished your major goal. What do your daily routines look like? What types of people are you hanging out with? etc.
When you are in the place where you have already done this thing (that you currently have no idea how to do) the ideas will come to you. Your brain will actively seek solutions which pave the path towards your achievement of your goal.
The insights are subtle, you may be in a bookstore or surfing online and a book will catch your attention, you may be invited to an event, you may have someone from your past pop into your head...reach out, read or listen to audio, attend events and talk to people. Get a little (or a lot) uncomfortable. All of these things will help you move closer to your ultimate objective.
You don’t have to know all the answers upfront, you just have to be willing to “Begin with the end in mind.” as the late, great Stephen Covey used to say.
The clearer you get on your desired objective and the more open you are to taking consistent action towards learning and growing your way towards its achievement ... the faster you will get there.
