If you have had dreams, ambitions and objectives, you know that most of them are never achieved -- not because they were impossible, but because they were never even started. If you would like to get anything done, the key is to visualize what you desire (in terms of the outcome), and to then -- within 5 critical minutes of your visualization process -- take a first action toward that dream, ambition or objective, even if this action is simply reducing the idea to its essence and writing it on your "to do" list. Then within that same day, take a first physical action step (such as making a phone call, registering for an event, visiting a website, etc.) and pledge to yourself to take one additional action toward the furtherance of that which you are seeking to achieve per week at minimum.
The greatest acts and deeds are not achieved in giant steps -- they are achieved by incremental consistency; by working conscientiously, one action step at a time until your book is written, your song is recorded, your business is operating at a self-sustaining cash flow... whatever it is.
While the greatest ideas just emerge, seemingly magically, through bursts of energy in the mind, to live a life of self-actualization and accomplishment, you must 1) fully visualize them, 2) write them down on your "to do" list, 3) take a first physical action toward transforming that idea into a reality within that same day, and 4) follow a path made of increments toward your ultimate vision.
WRITE IT DOWN.
TAKE A FIRST ACTION.
GET IT DONE!
