Get Rid of Mystery: Plan What Will Happen if You Take Action Now



It is magnificent to get rid of mystery by planning what will happen if you take action now. In order to accomplish our goals and succeed at what we want to do, there comes a point where we must take action now. This is always one of the hardest spots on the road to success. It is hard because it involves risks, the unknown and potential for unpleasant outcomes.

You cannot let fear of the unknown keep you from taking action now to accomplish your goals. Instead of being paralyzed by fear of the unknown, get to know what will happen and prepare for what is to come. For example, it is scary to look for a new job, to accept a promotion or start a new business venture. However, all of those things are good and wonderful things that one should run to, not away from. One way to eliminate the fear is to make plans for what you will do after you succeed.

Take action now and prepare for success after you reach your goals.

Often when people make plans to get to their idea of success, they make checklists, benchmarks and paths for every step along the road to success.The best planners are sure to make their plans SMART aka specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound. What they do not do is make a plan for what will happen once they have succeeded, once they reach success. That is a mistake. Make your plans to succeed, but don’t stop there. Make sure to include plans for what you will do once you have reached your goal.

Having a plan in place for what you will do once you meet your goal is important. It is important because knowing what will happen once you succeed takes away the fear of success. Interestingly, fear of success tends to keep some people from taking action now to succeed. So, by planning for how you will handle success and meeting your goals the fear of success will be eliminated.

In conclusion, it is magnificent to get rid of mystery by planning what will happen if you take action now. So, the question for you this magnificent day is what are your plans for after you have taken action now?

  • Very well said. Success is only possible when we face our fear of the unknown.

    • You are correct, we cannot control the unknown, we can just continue on our journey.

  • Making a goal and at the same time making it happen will surely help individual find success.

  • It is a great reminder for us all. Planning definitely is an important key to do in order to set our future goals.

  • You are right, sometimes we humans feel fear and that's what stopping us, I believe that's just normal however the thing we can do in order to proceed to everything is to take risk and face our fear in order to overcome them.

  • I do agree with you, I am in that process now, kind of. I have been putting this for years but now I am ready.

    • Good for you! I am excited to see what happens now that you are ready to move.

  • I find planning a very important step to success. As I am no longer a single person, I do the planning with my husband. And that help us a lot to reach our goals.

    • You are correct, it is much better to have a partner in the planning process.

  • If you fail to plan, you plan to fail for sure. And in that planning, never let fear get in the way. Great message here! Thanks for sharing!

  • I have finally found a good balance between planning things and living in the moment. I make lists for just about everything, but do not stress when things do not go according to plan. I love having the plan there and you can go back to it if needed to get back on track.

  • list and plans are great but never let them keep you from living in the moment

    • That is a good point. Plans should be guides, not prison bars.

  • I keep composition notebooks for each of our businesses to write down my goals and how I plan to reach them. I find it is very helpful to keep me on track and improving.
