We can learn tons of new things, we can be the smartest persons amongst our peers, we can have many friends, we can even bring color or brighten up a room filled with people when we come in…
All that means very little if we don’t take action.
The number one reason why people don’t take action is fear. Have you seen a deer frozen by the headlights? Same thing happens to us sometimes, when we stop taking action paralyzed with fear. Fear of unknown, fear to make fools out of ourselves, fear to fail.
Fear is a powerful emotion. The more failures we “collected” in our life, the harder it is to overcome our fear of taking action.
Sometimes it takes small and repeated steps to be able to control your fear of taking action.
We are never free of this emotion, and that is a good thing, because not knowing fear would place us in dangerous situations regularly.
I failed many times in the past, and I’m sure I will again. But I also succeeded. We must accept the fact that not all our actions will be successful. And learn from our failures.
Another reason people invoke for not taking action is not being “the right time”. We can rationalize all we want and wait for the right time and to be prepared, if we don’t take action we will never be ready. We can only learn so much from the side-walk by watching others act. We will never compare, if we don’t take action ourselves.
Since I’ve mentioned it, another reason for not taking action is best described by this question and answer: “How can I compete with X who’s at the top of the game? I won’t have a chance.”
Well, if you don’t take action, you certainly won’t have a chance. Be yourself, find your niche, be creative, and… don’t stop.
