The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
– Walt Disney
Meaning of this quote:
There is one great quote by Bob Burns: “Don’t Talk About It, Be About It.”
Rather than being talk-oriented, strive to be task-oriented. Having a great vision or dream is just the beginning, but executing it well is really what matters, and without it everything is meaningless.
If you don’t plan out your execution, everything will look like a wish. Stop talking and get to work. Remember, without your action or execution nothing is going to happen.
Those who have achieved their great goal are not just dreamers, they are doers too. Those are the one who believes in hard work, perseverance, and creating a great strategy that enables them to keep moving forward in the right direction towards their goals.
Begin with the first step
The best way to begin is to take the first step and build momentum. Ultimately, momentum is what enables you to keep moving forward, Because one can’t stay motivated all the time. In the long run, when one lacks motivation, momentum drives you forward.
Planning is essential to have a successful first step. Without planning, it’s very easy to lose the way. And the main objective or goal is easy to overlook without planning.
Start by planning at an abstract level and you can always build up to a micro-level as you go along. What matters most is getting started and taking the first step.
The difference between a successful person and others is not lack of strength not a lack of knowledge but rather a lack of will.
– Vince Lombardi
Ultimately, it is your decision to do something that matters most. You must have the desire to get started. It cannot be achieved externally, it needs to come from within.
For those who really want to try it out, there is nothing complicated, impossible, or hard. It takes courage and dedication. However, keeping a realistic view is also important, and implementing the ideas requires conscientious planning and reasoning.
To get started, quit talking and start implementing
Do not let gossip consume all of your time. There is a fine line between gossip and productive discussion. The idea is surely not to be serious all the time, and indeed there should be a balance, which is why it is important for it to also keep a healthy balance of productive and non-productive dialogue.
Try to achieve the perfect balance, which keeps you going without getting exhausted. Anything over and above what is needed can throw the equation out of balance.
Do not get stressed out to the point that you are feeling demotivated in the long run. Develop a perfect strategy that helps you to move forward without stress at least all the time. Develop an effective plan that keeps you motivated and gets the job done at the same time.
Nothing can be accomplished with the absence of courage. Taking the first step or beginning something new takes courage.
Following passion or dreams is rewarding, but make sure you have the courage as well. Confidence is shaken when fear of failure arises. Re-validate the ideas and re-evaluate everything in order to regain confidence.
Steve Jobs, once said: “If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.“
Knowing that nothing happens overnight is true wisdom. Great things take great effort and time. If it were that easy, everyone would follow the same path.
You can accomplish almost anything you set your mind to. If it is hard, it means there is a good reason for that. Work on yourself so you can handle the difficulties. Don’t compromise your vision to make your abilities fit your vision. Instead, make your abilities match your vision in order to achieve your goals.
The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.
– Vidal Sassoon
