Time to Start

3 tips to help you get started on something new

It’s Time for you to Get Started

What is it you want to do? Everyone has something…what’s your something?  Got it in your mind? Okay, now, why haven’t you gotten a move on that?

We are going to talk about three things you can do to get you moving in the right direction:

1.     Realize that you can do it.  “I can’t” is such a popular phrase, which is so silly.  We use it constantly, but we don’t really mean it.  You actually can.  Can you right now? Maybe not.  Can you eventually?  Absolutely.  Stop telling others and definitely stop telling yourself that you can’t do something.  It’s 2016, people….”I can’t” is quickly falling by the wayside. You have the desire, you have the capabilities, so yes, you can do it.

2.     Decide What you Need in Order to Get Started.  It’s okay to not have everything you need in order to start something new.  Knowing what you need is all you need.  Do you need more education, or training? More accountability? Better time management?  You don’t have to obtain all of these things at the same time.  Write down the list of your needs, pick one, and get moving on that.

3.     Commit to Making One Step.  Just one.  Sign up for that class.  Have that hard talk.  Rewrite your budget (or, create one if you don’t have one).  Say “no” to something, so that you can make room for something else.  What is one, small thing you can do to move you closer?  Pick it. Do it. You will look back later on and the simple, initial step you’re taking now will hold a different value to you.  What you choose to do now, when executed well, will set you on the path to more little steps until you find yourself wondering why you didn’t start this sooner.

You can’t go wrong here.  Try the one step.  If you realize it’s not for you, okay, you tried.  You can scratch it off the list without regret.   But, if it does work for you, whoa.  What does that look like for your life?

Today’s the day. Realize that you can do this. Decide what you need in order to make it happen. Commit…to one, small, step.  

Would you like to take the jump, but don't have the motivation, or the discipline? I would love to be a part of your new adventure.
