The Power of Immediate Action: 50 Reasons Why You Should Get Started RIGHT NOW

Updated on May 26, 2014

We all have moments that lack motivation

I personally want to congratulate you RIGHT NOW. Even if you only make it half way through this list and never come back, the very fact that you are in the act of looking for inspiration and how to generate motivation to start or continue achieving your goals, is absolutely amazing and something you should be proud of.

I may or may not be the person you who motivate you to get up and take action IMMEDIATELY, but I'm definitely going to give it my 200% best effort. I'm going to do this because I have been where you are right now. More than once.

I've been in that position where I could see a thousand ways to make my life better, but I just couldn't generate the motivation to begin achieving my goals. I was stuck in what's known as Approach Avoidance - which is that point in time when the only thing you need is the right fuel to achieve lift off.

From there, it's just a matter of steering your ship to the moons of Saturn.

Take the time to check out the reasons I've already listed for why you must take immediate action and get excited, get revved up and then get out and start achieving your goals!

G.O.A.L. stands for:





Your First 40 Reasons

I'm going to do the hard part for you and literally GIVE you 40 reasons to get started RIGHT NOW. It doesn't matter if it's writing, cleaning, starting a business, loving more, exercising, quitting smoking, whatever it is - it won't do anything for you unless you get started RIGHT NOW!

19. Achieving your goals will create more pleasure in your life which is contagious and will create more pleasure in the lives of others, helping you contribute to the overall happiness of everyone around you.

The Final 10

Here's your challenge:

Sit down RIGHT NOW and finish this list!

It's not that hard. You already have FORTY reasons get started right now, all you need are ten more. The only trick to this challenge is; your final ten reason absolutely MUST be personalized. They must be reasons that are specific to YOUR life. These top forty are generic and will fit anyone's life, that's the beauty of them. That being said, they are complete trash if they are not combined with at least ten personalized reasons for you to get started RIGHT NOW.

It could be that your goal of eating less will attract your ideal lover or help you love your current S.O. better because you feel better about yourself. Or it might be that quitting smoking will help you get a job you've always wanted that requires non-smokers. It could be that writing one or two more songs will complete your album and help you secure your record deal. Or it might simply be that you have a very special person in your life who would be very proud of you for accomplishing your goal.

Start these final ten reasons with: "I will feel" or "I will gain"

Go ahead, get started RIGHT NOW:











Extra Credit

Do you really want to give yourself a boost? Take this second challenge:

Fill out this list to 100 reasons you should start achieving your goal right now. It's easier than you think! In fact, I'm willing to bet that after you finish the above ten reasons, you'll already want to go to 11, then 12, then 15, then 20. Remember that you should include ALL reasons. They can be big, small, personal, interpersonal, vain, giving, etc... No reason is a bad reason!

Guess What!


You've already gotten started! Just by willing yourself to get excited and complete the final ten and extra credit, you've already begun achieving your goal!

Now, your next step is to turn your reasons into MORE action.

Not sure what you should do next? Then create a list of ten things you can do RIGHT NOW that will get you one step closer to your goal. Then use the rest of the week to finish accomplishing the rest of the list. Follow that up with a new list of ten things you can do to create MORE progress. Rinse, lather, repeat.
