When it comes to planning and executing those plans, many humans are not in their best form. This post aims to tell you what you need before you are able to start up and execute your projects. Execution is in itself another opportunity for more experience in whatever area you are venturing into.
It is no news that there are always some surmountable challenges that often stand on the way of executing your plans. However, it has been noticed that the majority of those challenges or the more potent factors are those that you can modify by simply changing your mindset. This post will spur you to overcome some of those challenges. But before then, let’s see some reasons why people are afraid to begin execution of their planned projects.
Why Are People Afraid To Begin Execution
For some reasons, people are afraid to begin execution of their planned projects. These reasons include the following:
- Their level of confidence is low when the risk level is high:
Most people would not venture into their plans when they realize that the risks are high. One thing they have failed to understand is that you actually get better, minimizing the risks when you begin already. This is what they may term “learning on the job”. Another important thing they need to learn is the skill of risk-taking, it is what makes successful people
- People often delay start upon the premise that there are no capitals:
The realization that what you need is probably already with you or at most is not as much as a million dollars is divine. Wishing for huge capitals is not as bad but the goal is to start somewhere and grow from there. Growth achieved this way is usually more long-lasting and sustainable.
By actively engaging in your new project, there are many things you stand to learn. Experience, they say, is the best teacher. This is from the standpoint that you develop helpful skills that no one can ever explain to you by simply being on the job and learning from your own mistakes. One of the greatest risks anyone can envisage is the risk that results from their own mistakes. The attitude of risk-taking also takes account of this kind of risk that results from your own mistakes. You must be ready to face all risks and just begin.
Some five years ago, I planned to write my first book but how would I start? I had not written any major publication then. I didn’t have the money to pay a publishing house or to get other logistics in place. But I needed to go on anyway. So I started gathering information about the topic until they were sufficient for me to start writing. And four years down the line, my first hard-copy book was ready for sale and distribution.
There are many people who just get stuck without being able to start. In this regards, the only way to break through is to push yourself to “just start”.
Starting comes from preparing your mind and not necessarily from huge capitals made available to you. Sometimes, the best way to check the feasibility of a project is to begin. The determination to succeed will be your strength when you fail but one thing is sure. All your plans are only paperwork until you start execution. One of the things you must learn to overcome is the fear of failure because failure is not actually when you fall, it is failing to rise again when you do. Learning from your mistakes and the mistakes of others open new ways for you to become more proficient.
At this point, let’s examine some precautions you need to take in order to achieve your dreams and be successful with your already planned but unexecuted projects.
1. Know When To Start(Start Right):
Knowing when to start is a question that will remain yet unanswered. But practically, one logic supports that you should start when you have made your plans and done all your required studies. But after all that is done, when exactly do you start. The short answer is “NOW”. Just start now.
2. Do It More And Say Less:
When your plans are so interesting, you may be tempted to tell someone about them. One of the mistakes people make is revealing the details of everything they plan to do to more than one trusted ear. Telling your plans to certain people can create more negativity in you. In other words, they may discourage you with their words.
And secondly, if everyone already knows about your plans, they are good as already executed. This is a mind principle that once you start saying the finished product of your plans already, you begin to think you have already achieved it. This will greatly hamper your productivity in that line.
Truth be told, telling someone of your plans can be soothing as it enables you to let out the steams of the plans in your heart. But instead of letting this useful steam, convert them to action and see how far you will go. There are also chances that the person you are sharing with can directly or indirectly go against you behind your back to hinder your progress. Anything is a possibility.
3. Have Supporting Minds With You:
One of the best things you can ever have is people that have a like mind and willing to support you. In short, they are extremely rare to find. If you must build communications that will influence your decisions on the execution of your plans, it must be among those you consider trustworthy and of the same mind with you. Otherwise, remain dump with your plans. No matter how trustworthy your companions are, you must learn to define your top secrets and uphold them that way.
4. Getting Support:
Getting support can be a very difficult task. The most primary source of support you can ever receive is from your family. Friends and colleagues can be great sources too. However, it is important to know that help may not come from those who you expected it from the most. It can often try to get distressing when the people you believe should do not end up giving you the required support.
External support is extremely valuable. Great minds never underestimate the importance of external support but they do not wholly rely on them.
Summarily, what are the things you need to know before you start up or execute your planned projects? First, know that it all depends on you, no one else and nothing else.
Don’t procrastinate, just do it.
Learn about your project each day by reading materials and testimonials.
Be careful who you tell them to especially at the earliest phase.
Don’t give up; keep moving on.
Don’t be too self-centred, understand the value of external support.
When you get no support, just stay cool.
Never fail to rise again when you fall.
One motto I have always loved is “Keep Moving Forward”. For you to achieve your greatest goals, you must keep moving forward, even when you fall. You needed to know how to start up and execute your projects. And now you got a bonus tip. In the overall, overcome your inner battles and keep moving forward. That’s all you need to start and keep moving with your project.
