It takes more force to get an object moving than it does to keep it moving. Our lives are the same way. The most difficult part of making a change is to first get started.
Once we do that, the momentum begins to build naturally, and it becomes a matter of time and patience.
I talk to people every day who tell me that they know what they want to do but they just don’t know how to get started. I explain that incremental steps lead to permanent change so just choose something small and start doing it today. Think of one simple thing you can do to change and do it now.
Don’t wait for tomorrow. Don’t make an elaborate plan just start taking some kind of action.
Follow this guideline:
- Name one area that you want to improve.
- Ask yourself, “What is the smallest step I could possibly take to begin turning this around?
- Do that today.
- Pat yourself on the back for your small victory.
- Take that motivation and good feelings into tomorrow.
- Stay in motion. Continue taking action incrementally.
- Once you have consistency, you can choose something else to work on.
In words, it’s simple – almost too simple but you need to put it into action.
You need to actually practice turning your life around and moving it in a new direction one step at a time. Get things in motion to make the change, not next week but today!
