9 out of 10 people know what they want, yet they still don't take any action.
Does this surprise you? Are you one of the nine people or are you the one who takes action?
Now, where do we go from here?
If we would be in therapy, we would analyze this topic, go to the bottom of this. And indeed, there are a lot of articles on the topic of procrastination these days. Why aren't we moving forward. What is stopping us? Why do we feel stuck. What kind of bad habits have we formed that are holding us back. However, this approach is focused on the problem, right?
But this is coaching and as you may know by now, we are solution focused. We rather concentrate on how you can move forward, because in the end, how much does it matter to understand why you are standing still, not following through with your dreams, your health plan, your fitness plan, etc. If we don't take any action nothing will change.
So let me ask you this: is this topic on your mind really important to you?
Do you really care about how it could change your life?
And most importantly who are you becoming if you would follow through and would take action?
Because once we are clear who we want to become we can think about how we can get there. So the next question you need to ask yourself is: what is one step I can take to get closer to my goal. Just one small step. And then, and yes, you guessed it right:
Just do it!
It might support you to come up with an accountability system for yourself. This could be
setting an alarm on your clock,
sticky notes around the house or at the office,
some kind of a reward system once you have done your task or
a person who holds you accountable like a friend, a family member or a personal coach.
COACHING because a coach will inspire you to take action!
It isn´t that complicated, is it? But it takes courage, energy and a vision for your life who you want to become.
So for today, I encourage you to take action. Just one small step. You can do it!
DON´T THINK ABOUT MAKING ART, JUST GET IT DONE.
LET EVERYONE ELSE DECIDE IF IT IS GOOD OR BAD,
WHETHER THEY LOVE IT OR HATE IT.
WHILE THEY ARE DECIDING, MAKE EVEN MORE ART.
