The missing link between your dream and reality is action.
Take action for your dreams every day. Keep a journal and record what you do every day to accomplish the task you have undertaken. Always keep in mind-without action all other success principles will not work. It is aptly said by Jim R “Affirmation without discipline is a delusion.”
There are people who are sincere, hardworking and honest but still they are living a mediocre life and on the other hand, there are unscrupulous, unfair people who do not work as hard as other people do still they manage to earn more and live a prosperous life. There is only one reason for this, their desire to succeed, their desire to get what they want is very intense, they work every day, and they put effort on a consistent and persistent basis to achieve what they want. The other people fail to do it. This is the difference.
Dreams & Goals without discipline is merely wishful thinking. Make a concrete plan, have belief in your plan. Once you start executing your plan you will come across various challenges which you would be capable of turning into an opportunity. But the important thing is you must take action every day.
There are times when the goals seem unachievable. This happens because of a lack of faith and belief. In such a situation, it is more important to take massive action- even if you do not believe initially. As you will progress, faith and belief will also increase. Results will definitely come if there is consistent and focused action. When I started writing I was having doubt if I would make a good writer, but one thing I made sure that every day I read and write.
Having doubt was natural as I was not a trained writer and in the past, I never thought of making writing as my career. There was only one way I could monitor my progress as a writer, it was a number of words I would see on my monitor. I read more than 30 books in the year 2018 and I have a goal to read more than 50 books in the year 2019. I wrote 500 words daily in 2018. I gradually increased it to 1000 words in the year 2019. As a result, I had been able to write many articles and draft for my first book.
You can also do it. Whatever your goal may be, you need to just keep on working, you can start with working those things which are possible, later on, you would find you are doing what once seemed impossible for you. With the consistent effort, your capability and skill sets would enhance to such a level that you would be amazed to see the changes in yourself. This enhanced capability would help you to reach your goals faster and easier way. But to achieve this you need to be tough to yourself.
Self-talk, goal setting, excellent coaching system, will not work if these are not supported by action. You may have a brilliant idea but it will not give any result if it not acted upon. Can you imagine a good harvest without tilling the soil and sowing seeds in the field? Obviously not: Farmers know it and apply it. You know it and you need to apply it in your endeavour to achieve your goals.
Tracking and assessment of your progress on a monthly basis, weekly basis and daily basis are essential. It will help you keep the focus on your goals and put concerted effort.
The path to success is to take massive, determined action: Tony Robbins.
Dreams and Goals without action cause frustration. Massive action has no substitute. An action is an antidote for self-doubt. Everything is possible if you believe in yourself. If you have a burning desire to get and do something, paths are laid down by God himself. You need to look at it. It can be seen through the lens of vision. Without vision man or any organization will perish. If you want to survive in the toughest of the time, take massive action on a continuous basis. Slow and steady wins the race is long gone. Slow and steady does not win the race. It’s fast and steady. Take massive action in urgency.You need to take action for your dreams Now, Right now.
