However you define success, it certainly doesn't happen overnight. We often look to our idols and assume that success simply came to them. What we don't see are the highs and lows, the gains and losses and the absolute blood, sweat and tears that goes hand-in-hand with making any dream a reality.
When it comes down to it, you must take continuous action over and over again to be successful. Without that, a goal will remain a goal. To turn it in to action, start with these simple steps:
1. Pay attention to your intuition
Your heart of hearts always knows what is best. We have become very good at building layers over our true selves. Why? Because we feel a need to Keep Up With the Jones', and to fit in and conform with society. As a result, we take that corporate job, or get married early, or take the easily laid out path before us.
It takes guts to drill down deep, but once you are there, your true self will reveal itself. Intuition is one of the most powerful things we possess, so listen to it.
2. Quiet the negative voice
You are one of your most powerful allies, so quit with the negative talk and learn to back yourself.
3. Take consistent action DAILY toward your goals
Have you ever started a project only to neglect it a week later? Once you have your goal in order, commit to it! Stay accountable by telling your loved ones what you are embarking on, or sign up for something that will ensure you stick to your path.
4. Once you take that action, it is imperative to keep moving forward
Do not wait for anything to magically manifest. If you don't make it happen, no one else will. You are the driver of your dreams and your destiny, so get moving!
