Spring always seems like the ideal time to take action. With the start of a new season and the promise of warmer days on the horizon, we can start looking ahead to new ventures.
So this month’s blog theme will be ‘Spring into Action’.
Taking action seems like an obvious theme of self development and personal growth, and of course, it is. But it can also the one that causes the most difficulty.
Dreaming big, goal setting and visualising is all well and good. But without the crucial steps to take action and get started, our ambitions are futile. And even worse, they turn into regrets of the things we valued, but didn’t pursue.
It might be the ideal time, but why is taking action so hard?
Taking action means change, and even when we know that it will be a positive or necessary change, it can still be difficult.
We get used to our comfort zone, and fear or insecurity of the unknown scares us. And rightly so. Fear warns us of potential danger and making a complete fool of ourselves (well, sometimes!). So it’s good to make sure that when it’s time to take action, that it’s well planned and considered, to give it the best chance of working.
So this month, I’ll be looking at how we can take the most effective action, and how to address the things that hold us back. The questions such as ‘Am I doing enough?’, or ‘Where do I start?’ are among the most common, and can cause us to become so paralysed that we end up doing nothing. So stayed tuned to the blog and podcast this month, if you recognise any of these blocks.
And if you’re all ready to make some big changes, make sure you’re signed up for this month’s newsletter too. It contains a handy guide to goal planning, with a framework for setting yourself steps to achieving your goals. Sign up to the newsletter here.
