Posted On January 15, 2008 | Written by Emmanuel Oluwatosin

Where do you see yourself and/or your business in 5 years? What are your personal and business goals? What are the things that make you stay awake till late in the night when others are sleep? What are those things that excite you whenever you wake up each morning? Do you do something every day that brings you closer to your goals? Or you feel the goal is too big for you to accomplish? So, you don’t do anything. Is there a huge gap between your present [tag]job[/tag] and your ultimate [tag]career[/tag] destination?

Does the statement below describes who you are,

Yes, I’d like to be a consultant, but that means I’d have to go back to school and finish my degree. That would take years!” “Sure, I’d love to switch careers, but this job has security; I don’t think I could take the risk.” “It would be fun to try and market my own product, but I don’t know how to get started.” “I really want to start that [tag]business[/tag] but I don’t have the resources I need”

You keep piling up the excuses like dirty dishes in a sink. You always have a reason not to act on your goal; it feels like it would take too long, cost too much, require too many sacrifices to get from point A to point B. Whether it’s going back to school, [tag]starting your own business[/tag] or [tag]changing career[/tag], you would always be tempted to put it off until another time. Maybe when my wife gets a job, maybe when the children grow up, maybe when I retire. Maybe, maybe, maybe!How do you overcome the fear of starting? You reach big [tag]goals[/tag] by taking small steps! While you keep thinking that the time required is too long, those days and years will pass you by whether you [tag]pursue your goal[/tag] or not! You have got to follow through on your goals. Give yourself no other option. It is going to place a demand on you. It might mean that you cut yourself off from some activities but I tell you it is worth your time. Make up your mind right now to make each day count. So, take the first small step!

I have decided to take the small steps. What about you? Will you start it right away? Drop your comment and let me know what you decide.
