How to Get Rid of Inaction Paralysis!
How many times have you come up with a brilliant idea only to find yourself paralyzed with inaction and wondering/regretting why you never pursued it?
How many times have you allowed those unfounded fears to stand in the way of your progress? How many times will you keep allowing inaction paralysis to rob you of the life you want?
Whether you want to start a business, write a book or are looking for a new job or new clients, if you want to get results?you must act when your emotions are still high and the idea you have is sizzling hot! This is usually the time when the idea is so powerful and clear in your mind. You feel confident and enthusiastic?from this vantage point "anything is possible."
To turn intention into reality, you probably know that you not only have to "strike while the iron is hot" but also make your idea or goal hotter by striking immediately.
Since you realize this, as soon as the idea comes to your mind, you quickly begin to plan the actions you are going to take to ensure that you succeed. As you begin to get more specific on the details of the action plan?you suddenly begin to panic!
All sorts of fears and doubts begin to creep in. You begin to question yourself and your abilities. Questions like these begin to cross your mind?what will they think of my idea? What if they don't like me? What if it doesn't work? Am I setting myself up for rejection/failure? Will I be able to deliver? Can I really do this? Do I really know what I am getting myself into? Is my idea really worth the value I am placing on it? Does this sound familiar?
The moment you begin to panic is the moment that idea and inaction paralysis sets in! Your passion begins to fizzle and the importance and value of your idea begins to diminish in your eyes?if you don't STOP and recognize that this is something you can overcome ?you stand to lose it all.
Here are 3 quick ways to stop inaction paralysis and get moving on your goal.
1. Acknowledge the negative thoughts you are having.
This does not mean giving in to negative thoughts; it means accepting that you are having those thoughts and preparing to deal with them one by one. I suggest writing down a list of all the thoughts that are standing in the way of your idea or goal.
For instance, if you want to present a business proposal to a company?the negative thoughts you may have are; the company will not be interested, my proposal will be rejected, I may not be able to deliver the results I promise and etc. Write each thought down.
2. For each negative (why not) give a positive (why) response.
For all the negative thoughts on your "negative list" prepare a positive response for each one by highlighting why you want to carry on with your idea or goal. For example: If one of your negative thoughts was "The company will not be interested in my proposal;" your positive response to that will be" The company will be very interested because my proposal is in line with the company's vision and the work that I intend to do for the company will improve profits greatly, create positive publicity and boost the company's image internationally.
Whatever your reasons are, write down why you support carrying on with your idea or goal. This will help you get rid of what's holding you back mentally and allow you to start seeing the possibility of what you can do.
3. Prove yourself right!
The only way to prove yourself, is to take an action step in the direction you want to go. You can prove yourself right by either action or inaction. It's almost like a battle between good and evil. If you choose to give in to your fears, you will be proving to yourself that you can't really make it due to inaction paralysis. However, if despite all the fears you face, you boldly and courageously choose to go forward with your plans to pursue your idea, goal or dream?chances are that, you will prove yourself a winner!
Whatever you do, get rid of inaction paralysis and make deliberate plans to place yourself on the road to succes

Self-care Isnt Being Selfish
When was the last time you truly relaxed? Do you often find that another exhausting week ends and you glance at a book you bought six months ago and realise you simply haven't had the time to read it? If this sounds horribly familiar then it's likely that you are prioritising the demands in your business life and ultimately your personal life is missing out.
Taking action about our current station in life involves taking responsibility for our current state of affairs. When we acknowledge that we are the main culprits with regards to where we are now, we will more likely take responsibility for creating the future we desire.

Self Determination - Making the Most Out of You
Breaking the mold of being a child is difficult. The mere addition of years does not make that happen. The dependency many adults choose, in fact, keeps them in a child-like mentality. If the doctor makes our health decisions, an accountant our financial ones, a minister our moral ones and a politician is left to decide our rights, how is that different from a child being told what to do by teachers and parents?
Trust Your Intuition!
How many times have you been faced with a decision to make and all of a sudden you get this feeling of instinctively knowing what you must do? Something inside you is telling you the difference between what you should do and what you are meant to do. Many people interpret this as a hunch, a gut feeling or having an inkling.

"The measure of your success usually comes down to who wins the battle that rages between the two of you. The 'you' who wants to stop, give up, or take it easy, and the 'you' who chooses to beat back that which would stand in the way of your success - complacency." Chris Widener
My Backyard Recipe for Creating an Abundant Life
There's a party going on in my backyard. Just beyond the goldfish pond you can hear the low hum coming from the bee ensemble. If you step closer, you can see them dancing on the tops of purple coneflowers dusting themselves in bright orange pollen. They seem intoxicated by the abundance of fragrant flowers. A vast treasure trove, I imagine, to a bee.
Are You Lacking Self-Discipline? - Part 1
A man does not live until he begins to discipline himself; he merely exists. Like an animal he gratifies his desires and pursues his inclinations just where they may lead him. He is happy as a beast is happy, because he is not conscious of what he is depriving himself; he suffers as the beast suffers, because he does not know the way out of suffering. He does not intelligently reflect upon life, and lives in a series of sensations, longings, and confused memories which are unrelated to any central idea or principle. A man whose inner life is so ungoverned and chaotic must necessarily manifest this confusion in the visible conditions of his outer life in the world; and though for a time, running with the stream of his desires, he may draw to himself a more or less large share of the outer necessities and comforts of life, he never achieves any real success nor accomplishes any real good, and sooner or later wordly failure and disaster are inevitable, as the direct result of the inward failure to properly adjust and regulate those mental forces which make the outer life.

It's early January as I sit down to research and write this newsletter. I launch my web browser, surf over to MSN.com, surprised to find the feature article displaying a picture of Santa Claus with the caption "It's not too late to have your presents arrive on time." Somebody's been procrastinating - either Bill Gates or me (maybe I didn't refresh my browser). Or maybe my computer is trying to give me the hint to stop procrastinating and set about the task of writing this newsletter. Nah... Bill Gates must be the guilty one!
