The Downside of Waiting For Things To Happen

I’ve been guilty of this lately.

My normal MO is to decide I want something, and then take action. In many cases, the creating is half the fun. It’s always interesting to see the magical way things come together.

But lately I’ve been putting off taking action while I wait to see what the market will do.

On the surface it seems like the sensible plan. However, it’s easy for the waiting to drag on and for self doubt to creep in.

Waiting for things to happen has the effect of slowing down time and amplifying the feeling that “it hasn’t happened yet.”

And as we all know – what you focus on expands.

So while waiting for the market to pick up and sales to happen might feel like the responsible thing to do, it can also be counter productive.

Side note: It doesn’t matter what the market is or isn’t doing. There are sales happening regardless. Your job is not to worry about the market. It’s to connect with your clients and help them buy and sell real estate.

Have you been there? Have you ever caught yourself stalling out, waiting for things to happen?

The Universe rewards action, not hesitancy. So much of life is about trusting and taking action BEFORE things are perfectly aligned.

Your job is to find ways that you can move forward every day. It doesn’t have to be big steps or an expensive solution.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • If you want to get fit – don’t wait to join a gym, a walk outside will do just as much.
  • If your trying to lose weight – don’t wait around until you find the perfect diet program, try substituting carrot sticks for french fries.
  • Need to generate more business – don’t spin your wheels trying to create the perfect video, call a client to connect that you haven’t talked to in a while.

What have you caught yourself in limbo on – waiting for something to happen before you charge ahead and reach for your goals?

How can you take action today to move you closer?

To your success!
