There is a really good quote that explains this: “Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage.” ~ Dale Carnegie.
Thinking about this quote will bring up the question, what would happen if I did , at the time. Or if I really committed to something, it would be different now.
Hiring a personal trainer to teach you how to eat the right way and exercise every day, is a huge action to do, but you are thinking if I’ve started two years ago I would look really desirable right now and I wouldn’t have this problem to deal with it now.
Reading a book every two weeks maybe seems easy, but rarely someone does that. This is a great action to take, because it is said that every problem that you have right now, has been written or solved in the past. Can you image if you have been reading for the past five years, how much knowledge you would have today and how much easier it would be to solve problems?
The impact on the business plan, is great as well. If you had taken an action three years ago to make your business larger, now you could reach 30.000 clients per week instead of the usual 3.000 that you have per week.
If you just sit and listen to others and what they have to say about why something will not work, you will just fill up with uncertainty and end up with doing nothing. So, when is the right time to take action?
