Over the last few months we have stressed the importance of planning and having the proper mindset which is geared for success. Those who take the time to clear their minds of all the negativity and failing thoughts are better able to handle the obstacles of life. Success is not an overnight endeavor, often requiring tremendous thought.
However, there is a time to think and there is a time to act. Taking action is the foundation of all success. No success is ever achieved without someone doing something. This is a universal principle which cannot be altered. Thoughts exist in the invisible world. Success is manifested in the physical realm. The bridge between the two is action. It is what takes an idea from the invisible.
The key to action is getting started. This is the one obstacle which hinders people. If they would only get started, their life would enjoy a great deal more success. For example, it is a lot easier to workout once you are at the gym. Few talk themselves out of exercising when they are on the gym floor. However, while sitting at home on the sofa, it is easy to justify not going to the gym.
This principle applies to all aspect of life. If the dishes are piling up in the sink, get started cleaning them. Have a big project that needs your attention, sit down and do something. Any project, no matter what its size, can be broken down into smaller, more manageable tasks. Focusing on accomplishing these will lead to success.
Therefore, get started. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Take that step now. Whatever you were putting off, go do something about it. If you are in need of exercise, create a workout schedule. Or go sign up for a gym membership. Or dig out your old gym clothes. No matter what you choose, take at least one action which moves you closer to your desired goal.
Now that we came to the end of this article, I will tell you the only reason it is here is because I started writing it. Prior to that moment, this was just a thought in my head. Since I started it, I was also able to complete it.
To your success!
