Somehow deep down we all know what actions we should take for our better future and outcome. But we keep procrastinating, keep doing the same thing and enjoy our own comfort zone.
There can be so many reasons for our inactions. First, maybe you don't have clarity or enough reason to start.
Second, comes the fear of failure, I think this is the main reason for our inaction. Our own mind and intelligence can be our foe or friend it all depends how we use it.
If we are continuously thinking like, ooh it's gonna be bad, maybe this goes this way, what if it won't work, what people will say etc. If we think like this then our mind will give us thousand reasons not to do.
But if we change some little perspective and our thinking and think like what if it worked, if not then I will do next time in a better way or at least I'll know what to do or not and how to do. Then our same mind will back our beliefs and feelings and will give us so many refreshed ideas, thoughts and also it will motivate us to do things.
So, in the end, it comes to our own beliefs and thinking. We make our own excuses then we approve it by giving reasons to our own self that why we didn't do that or not doing and so on.
We create our own comfort zone because of fear not because of we are not capable or enough. We even create our own self identity, deep down we think and behave like the way we believe ourselves to be.
Changes come when we take action not just by wishing and dreaming. Lets begin the process of new you, change those things which isn't improving you, it can be anything like some bad habits which you want to get rid of or trying to, changes in some daily routines how you use your time, your own self-negative thinkings and fear of the unknown, changes can be in your skills development and personality improvements etc.
Clarity and understanding don't come to us, we seek it by taking actions. It doesn't matter how small or big step you are taking just keep going and doing.
You will know what you should and shouldn't or at least how you should do it. Who knows, it may open some new possibilities for you which you didn't know.
Its never too late to start anything new.
