To take action towards a goal requires more than just a plan.
It requires intention, clarity, and focus to act on what you dream up. Otherwise, you stay stuck at the “dreaming” stage.
3 P’S IN THE TAKE ACTION EQUATION
There’s more to it though.
When you take action, you’ve got 3 P’s you need to be mindful of if you want to get where you’d like to go.
Watch this to get the inside scoop on what it takes to do instead of just dream…
DREAMING PRECEDES DOING
Are there times when you’re ready to forge ahead and take action on something
without hesitation, and then analysis paralysis occurs and you get stuck.
Or there’s times when you just sit back and dream?
Well, don’t get me wrong. Dreaming is important.
It allows creativity and ideas to flow. It allows you to visualize really where you want to be in the future.
However, without action, you can find yourself spinning your wheels, frustrated, stagnating running in circles.
TAKING ACTION WITHOUT HESITATION
So why do you take action on some things without hesitation?
You move forward with confidence, with courage, with intention.
You’re fearless, and you’re willing to take a risk.
I see three things that you all have that have gotten you where you are now, but nobody gives them credit for how they drive you to take action.
ABOUT PURPOSE, PASSION, AND PRIDE
You’re undoubtedly familiar with your purpose, your passion, and the pride you have in what you do.
But how familiar are you with these when you get stuck, and you can’t take action on something that you need to do?
HEAD VS. HEART
Could it be that your head is telling you one thing and your hearts telling you another?
“I should have done it that way.”
“I would have done it this way.”
“I could have done it that way.”
Those are thoughts that move you away from your passion and your purpose.
QUESTIONS ABOUT PURPOSE
There are times when we really need to reflect back and look at ourselves and say,
“Why do I get up every day?”
“Why am I doing what I’m doing?”
Your purpose embodies your values, your talents and your abilities. Purpose requires focus. It requires you to choose the purpose as your motivation.
WHAT ABOUT PASSION?
Well, what about passion?
“What do I really like doing?”
“What gives me a feeling of euphoria?”
“And what things can I spend hours on and lose track of time?”
Passion is about your energy.
LET’S TALK ABOUT PRIDE
Okay? So let’s look at pride.
Pride is personal responsibility in delivering excellence. That’s the acronym.
So where does this fit in to taking action?
And as you ask yourself which road you should take action on, you start to second guess yourself.
CONNECTING THE DOTS ON HOW TO TAKE ACTION
Go back to your purpose, your passion, and what pride you have and link them together.
Which “P” you explore first doesn’t really matter.
But if you’re still missing the clarity you need on the action you need to take,
then go back and answer your 3 P questions again.
Look at where those answers fall for you when you listen from the heart instead of act from the head.
