Let’s get real. This is the time of the year when everyone sets new goals, gets the boss’s approval, feels a renewed desire to climb the ladder of success, but unfortunately by Feb. 1st it’s back to the same old routine.
How can 2012 be different than past years? Here are a few thoughts that could help you understand why so many people fall short of their goals and never get out of the rut that has them stuck and why some people sail right up to the top.
First, we know there is a cost to success, but we can all agree our successes feel so good they seem worth the price once we’ve arrived. Sometimes when we’re still searching for success the cost seems heavy, but here’s what you need to keep in mind when the path seems steep: the price of failure is far greater.
Work every day for small successes and enjoy the feeling. That high can carry you on to another small success, or to greater and greater successes. Little by little you’re moving toward you bigger targets, and done this way, even with setbacks along the way, it never seems so bad you want to stop. Try getting a small success as early in the day as possible. You’ll see a big change in the way the rest of your day goes!
Why do some people we know accomplish things with such ease, and others, maybe even more competent, struggle? Both groups KNOW what to do. They have the same knowledge, but never get the same results. Look closely. One group takes action and the other tries to figure out a better way. By the time they figure it out they’re left in the dust, while the doers are picking up their bonus checks. What’s the difference? Knowledge is potential power and action is the real power.
The action-people are risk takers, not afraid to try something new. While some wait for every detail, the doer takes off with only 75 percent of the knowledge and blazes a trail, sometimes weaving off course but always way ahead of the field, and never looking back.
