You do not have time to wait for someone to tell you how to get it done. If you are waiting around, someone else has already figured it out. You must make action an instinct in your daily life. Most people have to think to take action. We live in a society where goal setting is necessary for one to achieve something. Do not get me wrong, I believe goals are great and without measurement, it can be very difficult to see improvement. Most people need that little pat on the back to keep pushing forward.
But lets look at goals from a whole other perspective. When you set a goal, you are setting a self-imposed limitation. You are telling yourself this is what you want to achieve. You need to learn to get a little bit more out of yourself. Go above that goal and teach yourself to be relentless. Being relentless will require you to act without someone else telling you to do so. Now break out of that comfort zone!
