We’ve all got dreams of a better life. For most us that means getting better with our finances, starting a business, or learning to manage our time better. Although it’s great to have dreams, they’re only the blueprint and without work and action, blueprints never turn into real objects.
With the new year coming up soon and the holiday season upon us many of us are looking towards a new year with excitement and possibility. You may be setting your resolutions and goals for the upcoming year, but as much as you plan, the only thing that will matter in 2011 is whether or not you act.
Will 2011 be the year where you try some of your ideas, where you test and challenge yourself? Will you break out of your mold and attempt to do things you’ve never done before? Will you create your own business, purchase an investment property, or begin managing your money more effectively? Or will you go into credit card debt, do poorly at your job, and put off retirement investing for yet another year. The choice is directly yours, and your actions will decide the outcome.
If you don’t start now, when will you?
The time for action is now. Don’t put things off for another week, or month, or year. If you’ve got an idea and you truly think it’s something that could make you successful, what’s holding you back?
Fears of failure, fear of success, or what others think are only existent in your mind. We all start out not knowing anything, but we don’t all end at the same spot.
“If you only do what you know you can do- you never do very much.”
Use 2011 as a year of growing, learning, taking on new challenges, and exploring the many things you didn’t dare to in the past. Make 2011 a year worth remembering.
