How to find the strength to take action?

12 replies
Dear all,

It is said that taking action is very critical in every aspect. If you attend many success seminar or reading success books but have difficulties on taking action, then the motivation is likely lacking strength.

For some people it's quite hard to find the strength to take action despite the situation urge them to do it. For instance, even in the middle of financial crisis, there are some people who have no clue of what to do. The only thing comes to their mind is just...borrow some money, and try hard to pay it on time.

But there are also some people who are willing to take whatever it takes to get out from their trouble. I have a friend who earns decent salary working as IT staff. After getting married, he found living expenses increase, so he need additional income about $15 (if converted to dollar) as his salary could not cover it anymore.

While searching for another job with better salary, he keeps on moving, not just waiting for new job interview, but he did another freelance job on the weekend, which is..."cleaning toilet" just to get that additional $15.

He took action to get that additional $15 because he got strong motivation to have extra money that not everybody can do the same. Frankly, I cannot do what he did, I'd rather wait for job interview call than cleaning toilet

So what about you guys, do you have any experiences about finding the strength to take action?

    Enjoy...

    Sometimes I will find myself doing anything just so I don't have to do the one next thing that I know I need to do to move forward. I'm not sure why I get those blocks, but at least now I can recognize when I do have them. It's difficult, but if I can just manage to sit down and start I find that I usually keep working and before I know it I have finished the task.

    Great video magnates. Thanks for sharing.
    I think it's a must you know your why.
    There is one thing above all else that you need to have firmly positioned inside your heart and mind.

    That one thing is your WHY.

    To have success into anything in life you need to know your WHY.

    Your WHY is the purpose behind your actions and your primary motivation for accomplishing your goals or task at hand.

    I got that from this site: Do You Know Your Why? | You Brand Inc

    Yes, I agree. The first step is often the hardest for me. If I can just sit down and take that first step, no matter how small, I usually find that the next step is a little easier. Before I know it I have accomplished that goal.

    Thanks for sharing the video. It is indeed helpful.

    In my case, the thing that gives me strength to take action is my family. Finding the core reason of your action. Reflecting on this reason again and again gives me the strength. It is not an easy process but in the long run it becomes automatic.
