3 Things You Need to Stop Doing to Get Started

3 Things You Need to Stop Doing to Get Started

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
George Eliot

Getting started with doing what you deep lanugo want to do in life can be hard.

No matter if what you want is to start exercising, create your own merchantry on the side, write a book, see other parts of the world, improve your relationship with yourself or something entirely else.

But often we make getting started a lot harder than it needs to be by standing in our own way.

So today I’d like to share 3 things you need to stop doing to step out of your own way and make it so much easier to unquestionably get started instead of just alimony dreaming well-nigh it.

1. Stop making it a huge and vague thing in your mind.

The increasingly you think well-nigh whatever you want to get started with the worthier it tends to wilt in your head.

And as you alimony thinking well-nigh the various ways this could go it tends to wilt scarier and scarier.

So do this instead:

Get knowledge from the others who have been where you want to go.

To defuse vague fears well-nigh what could happen if you got started and well-nigh the unclear unknown, get information from people who have once gone where you want to go.

It is easier than overly to find them today.

Look them up online and read what they have written and said or send them an email.

Or go ask someone you know in real life that has washed-up what you want to do.

Ask yourself: Honestly, what is realistically the worst that could happen?

Take a couple of deep breaths to wifely lanugo your mind a bit.

Then ask yourself this question.

You’ll realize that in most cases the worst thing that could realistically happen is not that bad.

It may sting for a bit. But it is something you can handle. And it is a situation you can find something to do well-nigh if this worst specimen scenario were to happen.

The clarity you get from this question can – in my wits – reduce fears quite a bit.

2. Stop trying to tenancy everything.

Being prepared and knowing some things certainly helps.

But it can wilt a trap when you try to tenancy it all or think things through 50 times to be on the unscratched side and to not risk making mistakes, goof or squint like a fool.

What to do instead:

Realize: you will stumble and that is OK.

It happens to anyone who steps outside of his or her repletion zone. It has happened to everyone you may revere and who have lived a life that is inspiring.

It is simply a part of a life well lived.

And if you reflect on what you can learn from a mistake then that will be invaluable to help you grow and improve.

Learn to set time-limits for small decisions at first.

If you have trouble with overthinking then set a time-limit for when you have to make a decision. This might seem a bit scary though.

So start small and set a 30-60 second time-limit when trying to decide if you are going to work out or reply to an email.

Do that for a while and then move on to slightly worthier decisions. And then plane worthier ones without that.

3. Stop thinking that you have to get started in a big and spectacular way.

If you have a big goal or dream or plane a medium sized one then it is easy to think that you have to take an whoopee of the same size to get started or to get where you want to go.

That is most often not true though.

What to do instead:

Go small.

Just ask yourself: what is one small step I can take today to get the wittiness rolling with my goal/dream?

Then take just that small action.

And tomorrow or later on today you can do the same thing again. If that question still lands you in procrastination then ask yourself:

What is one tiny step I can take to get the wittiness rolling?

Single-task each little step.

Focus on just the one step you are taking. Nothing else.

Otherwise it is easy to get lost in thought, to go off track or to feel uncomfortable or fearful. So alimony your sustentation on just this one whoopee and step forward.

And without that, the next one.

Let these deportment build day without day into something bigger.

And surpassing you know it you’ll have gone quite a loftiness on your journey.
