Many people consider that creating a business is just like a dream. Something that they would like to have but that is very hard to achieve — as much as wining the lottery, for example.
What these people forget, however, is that creating a business doesn’t have to be difficult if you take action. Massive action, day after day, is what makes a business move. It is not necessary to do everything in one day, or having millions of dollars to invest at a time.
Sadly, what happens is that some will talk about start a business but do nothing. This will become their lunch time discussion topic, where they will day dream with friends and family. However, if nothing is done, this will continue being not more than a dream.
How to Make Change Happen
The main engine of change is called action. When you take action, you are able to create what is in your mind. Turning your desires into reality instead of dreams is the main advantage of taking action.
If you’re holding yourself from taking action, you are making your mind a slave.
Notice that your mind generate ideas that will make the best for you. You mind wants what is best for you, but you need to cooperate by doing something. If you second guess the good things that your mind creates, you will become powerless. Your mind will just stop generating ideas, knowing that you will not take any action on them.
Therefore, taking action is what separate the successful from the unsuccessful. Everyone has ideas, but the ones that take action will have changes, while the rest will feel disempowered and weak.
Here are some of the advantages of taking action:
- Getting in control: when you take action, you say to yourself and others that you are in control. You are not just waiting someone to dictate what will happen: you are making your own future.
- Showing other people what you’re capable of: people will start to see what you’re capable of when you take action. This can help you by getting additional benefits. For example, a friend of mine got a job offer just because he was taking action towards his dream of learning music.
- Increasing your bank account: the only way to make more money is doing something. Even if you want to win the lottery, you need to go out and buy tickets. This is a beginning.
As you see, taking action is not only a good thing to do, it is necessary for success. As you read this, do something for your future. It doesn’t need to be a giant step, but it can propel into a better future.
