“Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass.” – Paul J. Meyer
You can visualize what you want in life, have a desire for it, and believe you can achieve it… but if you don’t take action, nothing will happen.
In the final part of this series, we’re going to talk about the last part of Paul J Meyer’s quote, “enthusiastically act upon”.
Some people struggle to take action because they’ve set a goal that feels beyond the realm of possibility for them. Others struggle because they set goals that require more work than they’re willing to do.
Look at someone who has what you want. What are they doing? Are you willing to do what they’re doing and what they’ve done to get there?
As we go through this process of looking at ourselves, learning about our values and putting together a plan for our goals, we learn a lot about ourselves. Even if we have the best plan in the world, if we feel it’s in conflict with our goals and values, then there’s a good chance we won’t act on it.
I had one of my coaching clients tell me that she needed somebody to be accountable to. In her entire life, from elementary school all the way through college, there was always somebody who motivated her to do what she needed to do.
If you’re someone who needs that accountability, then find yourself a few people you trust, tell them what you want to do and ask for their support.
Last weekend, I did just that. I stood in front of a group of friends and colleagues and told them I was committed to getting to the top position in the company. I wanted to be held accountable for that. I wanted them to come and ask how things were going, and if I was getting closer to reaching that goal.
Having someone hold you accountable simply means that you’ve created a support system for taking that action.
If your goal is congruent with your values but it doesn’t happen in the timeframe you wanted, don’t change the goal, move the goalpost. You have a support system in place, you have everything we’ve talked about over the past few weeks, and you’re prepared to do the work. With all of those things, you will be successful.
Best of luck,
