Just Do It

The simple truth is that when it comes to self-betterment and self-improvement, perhaps the single most important thing you can do is take action.

We all want to live fulfilling, meaningful lives; and yet, many of us struggle to make changes, to take control of our lives. We are afraid—we fear the unknown, we fear uncertainty, we fear failure and success—and our fear limits us, blocks us.

(See my related article, Comparisons & the Mistakes We Make)

The best way to move beyond our fear is to act. The truth is, most of us fear responsibility, we fear the knowledge that if we act, we then have no one to blame but ourselves if something goes wrong.

The truth is, if we don’t act, however, we are still to blame.

(See my related article, Creating Opportunities)

That a solution is simple by no means makes it easy. For many, taking action, doing something, may seem like the hardest obstacle to overcome. Everything you have learned, every social convention and norm, will work against you. Your imagination will work against you. And yet, the only thing holding you back is you yourself.

Exercising your agency is the only way to improve your situation. This is your life—no one can live it for you—and no one is to blame but you for how it is lived. Once you recognize this, once you start taking responsibility for yourself, it only gets easier.

Many of us struggle because we expect too much and if we fail to meet those expectations, we give up.

You will not be the best the first time you try something new, but you will improve if you put in the time, if you act, if you make an effort, and if you take responsibility for yourself and your progress.

Remember: Just do it.
