Sometimes, when we can’t see the entire pathway toward our goals, we block success by refusing to take action on a project or opportunity. We are afraid to start, because the outcome is uncertain. While we plan, think, research and analyze, our opportunities slowly slip away.
Highly successful people take a different approach — they lean into it. They open themselves to opportunities and become willing to do what it takes to pursue opportunities further, without specific expectations. They say “yes” to opportunities, take the first steps and then decide if they want to keep going.
Stop worrying about the “how.” When we are presented with opportunities or envision big goals, one question that stops us dead in our tracks is “But how will I do it?” Even if we can picture our goals, our minds can start doubting our ability to turn our dreams into reality.
For example, you may picture yourself as a best-selling author, but then a little voice in your head reminds you that you don’t know the first thing about writing a book, that the odds are stacked against your getting a publishing contract, that you have never marketed a book before and so on.
