This is Part 6 of the 7-part Productivity Series. Each week we are going to tap for an emotional block to taking action. Check out the full series.
Even when we know the right action to take, it can be difficult to do because we are so good at sabotaging ourselves. The Take Action Now program was created to eliminate self-sabotaging behavior so you can take decisive action towards achieving your goals. Full details here.
One of the difficulties with being successful is that success is not an all-or-nothing proposition. Success usually comes in stages as part of a process. When we are doing the work and taking action we are often too close to what is going on to see the progress we are making.
This can be discouraging and slow down our progress because it doesn't feel like the effort we are putting in is paying off.
This week's tap-along audio (and printable script below the player) will help you to recognize the progress you are making and to regain your momentum.
I recognize that my progress is incremental…I recognize my progress is not happening all at once…And because that is the case…It's really easy for me to miss my own progress…It's really easy for me to not recognize how I am moving forward…When I do not recognize my own progress…It's so easy for me to feel discouraged…It's easy for me to lose momentum…Because it doesn't feel like I'm moving forward…Since it doesn't feel like I'm moving forward…I don't want to waste my time or energy on something unsuccessful…I give myself permission to recognize the new normal…As being something that is different than the old normal…I give myself permission to recognize that progress is happening…Even if it is only happening in small ways…It is happening…I am moving forward…And I am making progress…I can see that progress when I take a step back…And reminding myself of my progress will help me to keep moving forward…It will help me maintain my momentum…It's a process…Sometimes I wish it wasn't always a process…But I recognize that is how success happens…I give myself permission to trust the process…And to trust that my action are having an effect…I am open to the process…I'm open to being more aware of the progress I am making…I give myself permission to keep taking action…Even when it doesn't feel like I'm moving forward…Because I am moving forward towards success.
