Less Talking, More D!

January 15, 2021 in Motivational - 2 min read


Hey listen, I know it’s really fun to talk and dream about what we want in life and what habits we want to start adopting. Visualizing and planning for the future helps us stay motivated but at the same time we need to start actually DOING what we got to do. Really, get up and start doing more.

You keep saying you need to start working out but all you probably end up doing is saving work-out routines and watching YouTube work-out videos. Get on with it already, draw up a work-out tracker for yourself and track how often you actually work-out – that’s one way of keeping motivated and encouraged. Soon enough you will start seeing results.

If you are still struggling to save up, it’s not because you are naturally an over-spender, it’s probably because your saving plan isn’t realistic. Give yourself weekly money instead of monthly – so instead of giving yourself $1 000 to spend every month, give yourself $250 every week to spend on whatever you like. It is much easier to budget and plan weekly rather than monthly and in that way, you won’t have to spend more than you should.

It’s almost impossible to wake up one day and decide to start your big business and hire staff to help you run it. Why? You need money to make money, right? So, in the meantime, while you’re still in school or even working at your 9-5 job, do what you can with what you have. That doesn’t necessarily have to be money but people around you too can be of significant help. So take a huge gulp, swallow your pride and start networking. Put yourself out there, volunteer to assist – you will gain experience and you will actually learn a thing or two.

Grab all the little opportunities that will pop up and if none of them come up then hey create them yourself. You know what you want and you know how badly you want it, now work for it. Start exploring, go on more random adventures. This might not be a great year but make sure you make it your DOING year. It’s time for action!
