How to act decisively when overflowing with business ideas

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I know most people struggle with seeing opportunity…my problem is the opposite. I have LOTS of opportunities and ideas for my business, and yet, I sit paralyzed because I can’t make a decision about what I should do first. I don’t want to choose the wrong idea, make a mistake and be taken down a path that leads nowhere.

Neagle Code Answer

First, there is no such thing as a mistake. Everything you do, regardless of the results you experience, is bringing you closer to truth. All of those experiences force you to grow, and in the growth, you begin to discover who you are and what you want for your life.

Many entrepreneurs hesitate to get started on an idea because they are afraid of making a mistake. Actually they aren’t afraid of the mistake itself, they are afraid of what other people will think about their decision and outcome.

So you must first DECIDE.

Choose ONE of your ideas. Ideally it would be the idea that would take you to your goals the quickest, but if you can’t see that, just choose one that inspires you the most.

Then take ACTION on that decision. Don’t worry about the results, don’t fret about what people will think, and don’t stop.

You see Spirit won’t give you your entire plan. You must take action on the first step before the 2nd step will be shown. If you never take action, you’ll never see the next opportunity.

If you should fall flat on your first idea, be grateful for what you’ve learned from it, and continue to look for the next opportunity. It WILL be there.

You will either win or you will learn, in which case, either outcome is a GIFT.

  1. I can relate to this comment. I have experienced being immobilized by too many choices or options. However, the more worrisome experience for me is that once I have taken action, defined steps I need to take in order to move forward toward my goal trusting that the next step will appear, after a while the steps evaporate. I see the goal. I hold my vision. I do the traditional business activities like creating my business plan, networking, etc. When presented with an obstacle that is a risk, I step off the cliff into the void and take that risk. Good things have come from taking that risk. Opportunities have come to me. And then everything grinds to a halt. Where is the next step? What is mine to do in this moment? Somehow, my vision becomes nothing more than a vision and ceases to form into solid reality.

    • If I may ask Cindra, when you make the decision to move forward what are you doing to bring what it is that you desire closer to you? This is a common misconception for many people. You cannot just decide and expect that thing to show up out of thin air. You have to be committed to it already being here and doing everything within your power to receive it. Those ‘traditional’ business activities, although important, are keeping you from the one thing you should ALWAYS be doing; making sales. You have to talk to people, ask them to buy, and repeat the process. If you are not making sales every day you are one step closer to losing your business. No business plan or networking is going to keep that afloat. Get out there, get on the phone, and ASK for the sale. That should be the most primary vision at the moment.
