Fear is the single most powerful force that we know today. Fear inhibits success.
Our fear of:
What if I don’t succeed?
What will people think of me?
What if the risk is to great?
What if the stars don’t align?
We stifle our inter success by aligning with people that also have fear and shy away from the edge. We don’t believe in ourselves and we don’t seek wisdom. Seeking assistance, training or guidance in your life is the single most powerful force. Change is hard and without change prevents our success. To achieve change you must act on your Vision and keep a lazar focus on your dreams.
Vision without action is merely a dream.
Action without vision is just passes time.
Vision with action can change the world.
Joel A. Barker
In live as in business, you need to have understand the constants in our surroundings. Evaluate your indicators and establish a basis of proven fact so as you introduce change you may understand the effect. Monitor the effects on your systems, evaluate and adjust your direction as needed. Understand and embrace the fact:
You don’t know what you don’t know!
Ways to avoid the pitfalls.
Create a proven balance sheet of life. Have a baseline of facts that are unwavering, time tested and accurate indicators of your objective. Remember the income statement only tells you what happened in the smallest of intervals reviewed, where the balance sheet is by far the most important compilation of the value of your asset. You understand you balance sheet of life, don’t rely on others to interpret it for you. Use both your Balance Sheet and Income Statement of life to adjust your course. If you need guidance, look for instruction on the concepts and not only the math. Know what moves your needle and why.
Always Challenge your thinking
This sounds crazy but, if you are not building your personal, emotional, educational, spiritual and monetary wealth then why risk? Create friends and allies with diverse viewpoints. Let their thoughts take you to places that you feel uncomfortable. When you are out of your comfort zone you are truly experiencing life. My life has been a rich with experiences, people, places and challenges. I as you will learn, from these experience’s we will carry these element with us throughout our lives and they will change our thoughts, views, feelings and goals.
Our personal and professional growth is littered with experiences accumulated throughout our lives. I have taught many as many more have taught me. Know when to give and when to take. It is not all about you. Companies and relationships fail all the time because of the lack of balance in these areas. Invest in the capital growth of your relationships whether personal of professional.
Know when to seek guidance and seek a supportive yet challenging experience. Don’t wait, if you never take the first step you will never have adventure. Change is life.
This is the first in the Call to Actions series. Invest in yourself, for you know no better investment in your life. Make a plan, act on your plan and work your plan. Get started today, why wait? Let’s make a plan together.
