I was on a coaching call recently, and my client made a comment that got me thinking …✨
As professionals, we know we are qualified and worthy of better recognition and growth. Taking the time to consider our options helps us get motivated – at least temporarily 🎉
What we do not take the time to do, however, is understand the costs of inaction. Unfortunately is just as important, no… more important than… understanding the benefits of action.
Here is what I mean: when we come across a potentially beneficial course, program, or event and we skip the opportunity, we tend to view it as having saved $27 or whatever the cost of the said offer. What has happened, though, is NOT a $27 savings, but a loss of whatever the developmental benefit of the opportunity was.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect you to be drawn to or resonate with every single course or program you come across, but if you are not taking any action at all toward growing, I do not doubt that you are missing out.
Make no mistake, inaction comes at a great cost, and if you are not getting the results you want in life, you are just as responsible for your inaction as you are for the actions you take.
Back to the client’s statement that got me typing this message, what she said was: “Oh, how many years I wasted, how much further I could have gone.”
✨But Imagine if she never took the step to sign up …
Let me help you get motivated to take action – Just as we can use the prospect of greater happiness to propel us, we can also use the pain of missing out to inspire us.
When you set out to make some major changes in your life, it certainly helps to be able to picture your end goal. But constantly focusing on your end goal can lead to inaction. It can have you believing that you can’t achieve the end goal because it is so far away from where you are now.🎉
It is so much easier to focus on taking one step at a time to reach that end goal. What matters is what you can do today to be a little bit better tomorrow. Small, incremental improvements are the key to achieving most big goals.
The message is simple: do something, start something to move you in the direction of your dreams and goals. Stagnation is not an option.
Here is a FREE quiz to get started on what to focus your energy on – whether to grow in your career or transition into entrepreneurship. Be assured that whatever the outcome, the world has never been more ready for female leadership. See you up there!👌
