Often, we are faced with the challenge of tapping into our inner drive to take action. These are times when we feel like working on our goals is wastage of time especially when the results we’ve anticipated for our projects are not yet in sight. However, take note that inner drive is not contingent on our external circumstances. It’s our negative thought associations that corrupt our decision making inner portals.
When I recently researched on what successful people do to ignite their inner drives, the following three steps stood out for me.
When we are clear about what we want, and have the desire to embark on achieving our desires, we automatically tap into our inner drives: because then, nothing presents reasons strong enough to distract our determined minds. The idea is to get very clear about what you want to achieve; the emotional benefits; the people you need to help you, or work with to achieve your goals, and the positive changes that your achievement will introduce to your life.
2. OPPORTUNITY COST.
Opportunity cost is the loss of the potential gain from other alternatives when one alternative is chosen. In regards to inner drive, this simply means that when we realize that not taking action costs more than the contrary, we tap into our inner drive to move things. In any case, before we take any action, we have to evaluate if taking action will add value to our businesses and/or life.
Being organized simplifies our action-taking process. When we un-clutter our lives, offices and minds in general, and develop simple but organized systems to support our projects, taking action becomes easy. Organization can be as simple as developing daily plans; to-do lists, getting focused, and developing a positive attitude.
