3-Step Formula for Gaining Confidence & Getting Things Done
by Dick DeVenzio
Anytime you have something to do, it feels good to have a method or formula that you can count on – a foolproof scheme that cannot be denied. When you have it, suddenly you have the terrific ingredient so often talked about: confidence.
How do you get confidence?
There’s no secret there. You become good at what you do. Or you get a formula you know will lead to excellence, and then confidence just sort of seems to sneak in on its own.
So how do you learn to perform extremely well? What is the secret formula for achieving, for getting things done?
The formula comes in three distinct parts.
STEP 1: Realize that any journey begins with a single step, and take that first step.
Regardless of what you want to do – write a book, be a star athlete, build a house, run a marathon, own a business – you have to start! Many great undertakings fail simply because they never begin at all.
STEP 2: Divide your journey into small steps, and commit yourself to a schedule for achieving each one. Try to take a step every day.
Take a small step toward your goal each day. Not a huge, difficult step, but a small “takeable” step. Do something you can do, and move ahead.
We are all impatient to achieve our goals, fulfill our dreams, realize our visions, and so on. Impatience is natural. It’s a part of everyone. Replace it. Relax. Be patient. And, enjoy the towering inevitability of step 3.
