Hoping, wishing and waiting is NOT a Success Strategy!

When you think about the things you want in your professional life, what side of the fence are you sitting on at the moment?  

Are you putting yourself out there, learning, developing and challenging yourself or are you sitting back, frustrated that you’re not living the life you want, but also not doing much about it?   It’s time to be honest with yourself.  

Stop Waiting 

Strike until the iron is Hot! – This sums up the difference between people who are successful versus those who are hoping, wishing and waiting for good things to come their way.  

Your comfort zone – it’s that place where you have most of the resources you need to make a decision or take action, and where all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle seem to fit together nicely.  Of course that sounds great – it’s not challenging or stressful and it’s an obvious course of action with little or no threat.  The problem however is that to get to your comfort zone TAKES TIME and with time comes lost opportunity.

If you’re waiting for ‘things to be perfect’, to take action you WILL pass up chances and experiences that may not come your way again.

Someone once said to me “sloppy success is better than perfect mediocrity”.  

Waiting for the ‘perfect time’ to do something, can mean you miss out and simply waste time whereas stepping outside of your comfort zone, and feeling a little uncomfortable at times, IS a great way to move forward in life.

So grab a pen and paper now and make a list of the key things you want to achieve in your life RIGHT NOW.  Then get down one simple thing you can do to take action on each point this week.  

Rememberyou’re not looking for perfection here, you simply need to put one small foot in front of the other every single day to move closer to your dreams and aspirations
