I could tell you that success is something that you’re born with, or it’s something that lands on you once you hit a certain age but, unfortunately, that isn’t true. Success is a series of little actions taken by you to get one step closer to what you want to achieve.
The thing is, these little actions are where we get all confused, and I don’t think there is a person on earth that hasn’t made this mistake, myself included.
Have you ever had a BHAG© – a Big Hairy Audacious Goal? This is a goal that is so huge and amazing and thrilling that you got super excited about? You’ve got the goal in mind, and you’re pumped… then you wait. You start to to come up with excuses like you don’t have the time right now or you don’t have the support right now. Perhaps you don’t have the energy right now, but you’ll get on that really soon…
This is the trap and we’re so busy staring into the future looking at that big shiny goal that we’re ignoring the right now. Each day we do this, is a step not taken and a goal not achieved. I have a solution, which is – it’s time to stop waiting for things to just happen. There is no perfect time or perfect situation, there’s only you and the path to where you want to be. Nike had it right “Just do it”. Do something, do anything, make that call, google that thing, go do that training, it’s up to you.
