The Ultimate Guide To Becoming A Doer

The Ultimate Guide To Becoming A Doer

Sometimes we spend an inordinate amount of time talking about our ideas, dreams, and aspirations. It is easy to content ourselves with simply having lofty ideas, not realizing their sheer abundance. Anyone who has taken a breath has likely had an idea that could have literally changed the course of his or her life in a revolutionary way. Unfortunately, such ideas rarely get implemented. According to Mark Twain, "the secret to getting ahead is getting started."

If you are tired of inactivity robbing you of your potential, then here are 15 ways to be a doer.
Dreams and Mental Preparedness
  1. Cultivate Your Dream
  2. Relinquish Regret
  3. Forgive yourself today.
  4. Let Go of the Stigma of Failure
  5. Know Yourself 
  6. Plan to Win
  7. Prioritize
  8. Start Small
  9. Set a Time Limit on Preparation
  10. Admit the Joylessness of Over-reaching
  11. Banish Eeyore aka Dream-killers
  12. Network With Achievers
  13. Get an Accountability Partner
  14. Delegate
  15. Create an Action Environment
  16. Record and Celebrate Your Progress
Closing Thoughts

Inactivity is one of the greatest thieves of opportunity. Don't be content with simply having a great idea. After all, the idea is often just a small fraction of the journey. It's what you do with your ideas, dreams, and passions that count. In your journey to be a doer, remember, as your thoughts become more, you become more. Therefore, commit to thinking on a higher level, develop high goals and plans of implementation, establish and maintain relationships that add to your life instead of subtract, and diminish the barriers to your motivation. As you apply these steps consistently, you too will be a doer.
