How to Take Action towards your Dreams

Successful people have one thing in common, they get things done. This is a pretty obvious characteristic each one of us needs to have if we really want to see a noticeable improvement in our lives.

To get things done, you need to take action and as simple as that. Unfortunately, the simplicity of this concept is sometimes can be difficult and hard to most of us.

“Action is the foundational key to all success” ~ Pablo Picasso

Below are simple reminders that can help you to push yourself and take action. Actions that will help you reach the life you truly deserve.


~Embrace the present~
Living in the present will help you to focus on what you can do in the present moment. The simplest ways to connect with the present is focus on you breathing for a minute or two. Do the “inhale – exhale” exercise.

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is God’s gift, that’s why we call it the present” ~ Joan Rivers (this quote was also used in the movie “KungFu Panda”)

Don’t over think about what you should have done in the past or what you can do in the future. Be in the present and embrace it. You cannot do anything in the past and absolutely you cannot do anything in the future. The only time you can affect is the present so being mindful on the things you do today is essentials. The things you do at the present moment. If you think too much about the past or the future, you cannot get anything done. You will always be on the same place just like stagnant water.


~Know the difference between motivation and taking action~

Motivation is good and I have no doubt about it. But being motivated is nothing to do with taking action. You can be motivated but still afraid to do that single step. I rather choose to become continuously motivated and taking necessary actions at the same time. Motivation serves as a fuel to get me running but I still need to kick the gas/accelerator to move forward. Get the idea???

Be a doer and play the game. The longer you deferred an idea in your head without implementing it, the weaker it becomes. When it happens, your motivation might also weaken and that idea may even disappear as well.

“Our real problem, then, is not our strength today; it is rather the vital necessity of action today to ensure our strength tomorrow.” ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower


~Ideas are nothing until they are implemented~
You have a great idea and you plan it very well. Unfortunately, you did not do anything to implement it and make it happen. Ideas or planning are important and it’s a fact. Unless you put it into action, it will never go anywhere. Stop procrastination and implement your ideas the soonest. Don’t just park those ideas and wait for the “right opportunity”. There is no right opportunity; the right time is today…

“Getting an idea should be like sitting on a pin; it should make you jump up and do something” ~ E. L. Simpson


~Do it one little step at a time~
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time…. Another famous saying but most people fail to apply it in our daily lives.

Having a big goal might overwhelm you and most difficult action may seem too much for you. It will just lead you to your “Procrastination mode”. Instead, you can start with small targets but be sure that those small targets are still related or towards to your main goal.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step” ~ Lao Tzu


If you really want to experience the life you truly deserve, you need to have the courage to take action without any external influences. It is your life, it’s you who need to decides and take necessary actions. Seize the initiative when you have an awesome idea and start taking massive action. Once people see you’re serious about getting things done, they’ll will certainly run towards you and ask how you did it.

“The only difference between success and failure is the ability to take action.” ~ Alexandre Graham Bell
