The single thing that you can do to dramatically improve your life, both in the short-term and the long run, is to take control of it. This can only be done if you take action. Determine your steps, and take action as soon as you can. Unfortunately, taking action is something people can never seem to do. They get stuck. They complain. They make excuses. But they never seem to be able to take that first step. The first step is often the hardest. Here are 3 ways to get on the road to an improved life, now.

1. Get over your fear of taking action.

The worst thing you can possibly do at this moment is nothing. Something is always better than nothing, and it’s never truer than now. If you do something, and you succeed, then that’s amazing. If you do something, and you fail, then you will have learned something from it. If you do nothing, there’s nothing in store for you. You don’t improve as a person, you don’t improve as an individual. You’re stagnant, and you’ll be left behind by all those who take one small step forward every single day.

2. Know what action to do. Don’t be overwhelmed.

Look inside yourself. What action do you need to do first? Do you need to lose weight, or improve your finances? There are millions of things you can do to improve, but don’t overwhelm yourself. Picking too many things can be poison to getting started. Pick one thing to do. Just one. Once you’re done with that, you can move on to the next one.

3. Move your butt.

You know what to do, and you’re not afraid. Now, move your butt. No one can do this for you. No matter how much your loved ones may want to help you, the reality is that you’re really the only one who can change yourself. Taking action requires a choice. Taking action isn’t easy; it takes effort! Knowing that, it’s the only way you can be better.

Do it. Get on that diet. Quit your job. Or get that side job. Do CrossFit. Whatever it is, take action, and do it today.

Is there something you’ve been holding off for months or years? Tell me. I’d love to hear from you.
