Are you envisioning how your life could look like in 3 or 5 or 20 years from now? And in the next moment you are back on the train that doesn’t ever seem to stop, you go on with your life, in and out like clockwork losing sight of where you actually want to go, … passing time. Your vision remains a dream…

In order to realize your vision you need to take action towards it. A lot of action(s), usually. By doing so be intentional with your vision in sight and priorities. Break down the actions into manageable bite-sized steps to avoid overwhelm. 

In any process, there are steps that are more interesting or fun and therefor easier to take. Then there are the ones that we don’t look forward to, they are too intimidating, or we just don’t know yet how to do them. Those are the steps where we get stuck. With our vision in mind, of where and who we want to be in the future, we can overcome any of the more difficult ones. These are also the more significant ones when we grow, when we are out of our comfort zone, when we face the unknown. Once mastered, we are a huge leap closer to our vision.

Here some tips that can help you overcome hesitation of taking action:

  • Allow yourself to be fully aware of your discomfort with the particular action step – find out if it’s fear, discomfort, or something else. Accept that you don’t *want* to do the step. That doesn’t mean you won’t be able to do it. Have your vision in mind.
  • Make sure the action is broken down as much as possible – in bite-sized steps
  • Come up with a plan to tackle one action the ‘first thing’ in your day. Having done the step will make you feel proud and empowered the rest of the day.
  • Remind yourself that we all struggle with change – it’s normal to get stuck and feel frustrated. Becoming self-critical won’t help.
  • Talk to a supportive friend or family member, who can give you an encouraging nudge.

The most important thing is to always take action with you vision in mind. 

Bonus tip: Create a vision board. It relates to your life direction and is a great tool to have during your journey. It’s about crafting something that will inspire you to realize your vision on a daily basis and having it in sight will keep you hooked.
