When you want to progress in your business, in your career, in your sport, in your job, you need to come up with a plan.
To start with, you need to be clear on your objctives...what it is you want to accomplish. The end result, if you like.
Let's say you are an athlete, a runner, and you need to shave a few seconds off your best time that you haven't been able to do before. And reaching this time, will see you eligible for represetative selection. (A Very Big Deal!)
So this becomes very important to you.
Based on your current performance, your current training program, your diet and so on, you can anticipate a schedule that will see you progress toward your goal.
What you know for sure is - if you remain doing the same things in the same way, you are NOT likely to achieve your goal.
So there needs to be a shift. And you need to formulate the plan to get this under way.
So you work on the plan...
Perhaps it is short, sharp training sessions or long, intense sessions.
Perhaps it is training every day of the week or only every other day.
Or perhaps it is intense weight training to increase your core strength.
Or a combination...
Whatever it is, you have to be fully committed.
You formulate your plan. This could be a training plan or a business plan (career, job, business).
And this becomes your blueprint for success.
So what is your next step?
- Step outside your comfort zone - step into fear, into the unknown, the unfamiliar because it is fear that keeps you within the bounds of your comfort zone.
- Take action - start doing the action steps - continue working hard in your training sessions.
- Provide value - by documenting your training program, your action steps - you inspire and help other athletes in their sporting pursuits (other business owners, other employees, other emloyers).
Providing value is the essential component of any venture...being able to shorten the learning curve for someone else; to lead by example through taking action and to inspire others by stepping out of your comfort zone.
What a way to change your life and impact the world, don't you think?
