You may be tempted to throw your hands in the air and give up on getting what you want. Chasing your dreams is hard and there will be times where you’re angry at the world and tempted to quit working towards your goals. Yes, life is hard! Here is a hard truth, you can only rely on yourself. Giving up on your goals is like giving up on yourself. Now, let’s talk about how you can move yourself to take action when it is the last thing you feel like doing.
Find a Way
It’s not complicated, you need to find a way rather than another excuse. You need to change your thinking to develop solutions instead of just fixating on your problems. Everybody has problems, you aren’t special in that regard. This is a simple shift in your thinking but it can be powerful when it comes to taking action. Here is how you can do just that.
When you get stuck the first thing many of us do is to complain about the situation. Complaining about how unfair life is or blaming someone else for the situation that you’re in. Wasting time complaining keeps you from taking action to solve the problem. Be aware and try and catch yourself before the complaining gets out of hand. If you want to stop complaining you first need to recognize when you’re doing it.
Look for Things You Can Do
Right after the complaining is the excuses on why we can’t do something. Instead change your mindset to believe that there is some action that is possible. You may have to get creative and be willing to try new things. This means getting out of your own comfort zone and taking a risk. Don’t waste time staying stuck because of excuses.
Analysis paralysis is a real thing, and it will kill your dreams. At some point you need to stop thinking and start doing or nothing ever changes. Reach down inside yourself and find the courage to take action.
You are completely responsible for your own life, no one is going to hand you the life that you want. You can start by changing your thinking on how you approach problems. Changing your thinking to become more solutions oriented can make a tremendous difference in your ability to take action and finally achieve the life that you have been dreaming about.
