A few years ago, while working for Tony Robbins, the world famous personal growth expert, I had the unique experience to walk on fire.
That’s right, walked on burning hot coals in my bare feet!! This was not only one of the most exciting experiences in my life, but it also provided me with one of the greatest lessons to be learned when it comes to accomplishing any goal you may have.
It’s a simple lesson, but an extremely powerful one. The lesson is that you must take that first step. This is similar to the old adage about how to eat an elephant. The answer being, one bite at a time!
In many of the situations I’ve been involved in, often times I find that a person is suffering from “paralysis by analysis”. They get so stuck in gathering information, thinking about what to do, learning more about the business, gathering content and data, etc, that they never actually take that first step to make things happen.
As Tony would say, “a real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.” Massive, determined action is what is required.
For many people though fear and procrastination keep them from taking that step; actually ANY step….
Many, many famous and successful people have written on this topic.
Mark Twain had said “The secret to getting ahead is getting started. The secret to getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”
