Take the Mystery Out of Why You Don’t Take Action Now — 34 Comments

  1. I had that feeling and that is why I started filling to do items in on the calendar. If I cannot fit it in my calendar I cannot fit it in my life.

  2. I think I get overwhelmed by the workload and the stress makes me procrastinate. I need to figure that out.

  3. I think good sleep and less interruptions would definitely help me out in a tremendous way! 🙂

  4. For me it’s just never enough time in the day! I could get so much more done with a few more hours!

  5. I don’t like to make excuses about things but, sometimes, life is interrupted by situations we have no control over. When that happens, I’m learning to let go and let God.

  6. Once I stifled being afraid of what I don’t know, I found so much more success!

  7. I think that once someone has figured out why they are not taking action and addressing it, things can move along more smoothly from that point. At least thats the case in most of my own situations!

  8. Janeane I completely agree with you First step is acknowledging so you can move forward.

  9. Great advice. Knowing ourselves better can help in so many ways – especially when it comes to business and our own personal motivation. – Katy

  10. I’m glad you put fear of success of here. That is a very real thing!

  11. I agree figuring out what is holding you back is definitely the first step in being able to move forward!

  12. This is such a great reminder. There are so many times when I get excited and make plans to make a change and then I don’t follow through. I need to figure out what keeps me from taking action. I think it is fear of failing.

  13. I think fear is what holds most of us back most of the time – although sometimes it’s just laziness!

  14. Yes! Once you know what that thing is you can actually do something about it. Thanks for this motivating post!

  15. Great tips. It seems that a lot of people have trouble with motivation once in a while.

  16. For me, it’s been fear. Since I started my VA business, business has been good, but when you’re just starting out and the work starts flying, it can get really overwhelming.

  17. I’m terrible about that, too! The bigger the project, the more I put it off. It always gets done, but I really need to work on that.

  18. Sometimes, you’ve really got to take stock of yourself to figure out what’s holding you back. Humans always shy away from things they don’t want to confront.

  19. What great tips… I have a habit of over-thinking things and psyching myself out…

  20. I need a little motivation every now and then.

  21. Insight is powerful! As a coach, it’s easy to help others see why they don’t move forward, but a little harder to figure it out for myself.

  22. Much needed words of encouragement. Thanks for shaing

  23. Just thinking about what stops me from certain things and usually it is the fear of what others think.

  24. Great post. I think many people get in the habit of “waiting” and then they just never move forward. Or they keep thinking that there will be a time when they’re “ready” to get started, only that time never comes.
