How would it feel to take action towards your goals and aspirations on a daily basis? And, even more than that: how would it feel to know that your actions are purposeful and aligned towards your goals and aspirations? That you are taking the necessary actions to progress and move forward? Amazing, right? Well, when we procrastinate, we don’t do that.

The blank piece of paper… The open fridge… The empty PowerPoint/Keynote slide… I am sure we’ve all been there, right? Waiting for inspiration to strike, so that we can complete our tasks? We’ve done that in the past because we’ve been told that is how it works. We know how important inspiration is in our life, career and business. After all, it is inspiration that makes us do things. So, what a pity that your goals, aspirations and dreams have to be tied to ‘waiting for inspiration to strike’. It is frustrating, isn’t it? What if, this was not true, and you did not have to wait for it to strike?
You know where I am going here… let’s blast this belief for once and all, as not only is this not true, but believing it is actually limits you and your results. Your results are driven by how inspired you are, and when you think about it, not much happens to those who wait. You do not have to wait for inspiration to strike; in fact, you have the power to stimulate it.

It goes like this: from a thought to a decision, from a decision to an action, from an action to a result. It is up to us to take control of our mind to get the results that we want, and I want to share with you 12 questions you can ask yourself today that will lead you to clarity. Continue reading
