Right Now is the fifth pillar of Frontline Warriors, which talks about being present and in the now. It is the ability to take action, risks, and seek life’s daily challenges. When we talk about Right Now, it is about taking determined action and your ability to own those actions. It’s embracing the task and challenges and succeeding in them.
Right Now – Taking Determined Action
Are such thoughts also overshadowing your life?
“I will do this once I complete that.”
“But should I or Should I not?”
“What if I don’t get the desired results….”
“No, I think I am not ready yet to take this step.”
That’s perfectly fine. You are not alone! 8.4% of Americans report having suffered at least one significant depressive episode during adulthood, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.
It is natural to have some negative thoughts when trying to make some big decisions in life. However, what’s not ok is when your thoughts start controlling your life.
This is what you need to change. And you can change this by putting your mind over matter. It means that….
TAKE ACTION now because NOW is the RIGHT TIME to take charge of your life.
Now is the time to find the WARRIOR hidden in you.
Defeat your inner pessimistic voice with positive action, determination, and self-discipline. Because… Fantasies Get You Nowhere.
Getting pigeon-holed by your dreams can become your biggest hurdle.
Avoid Being a Perfectionist
Fantasizing too much makes you take on PERFECTIONIST tendencies. Instead of working hard, you only think about attaining your picture-perfect dreams. You limit yourself from self-growth when you are not ready to challenge your ideas.
And this hesitation to act is why so many people can never achieve what they want in their lives.
So, try to change what’s Holding You Down. Many things in life can hinder your progress. Mostly, people are afraid to act because of these common issues:
- Uncertainty of the Future- you are too scared of what will happen as a consequence of taking action. The thoughts of “what can go wrong” never seem to escape your mind.
- Drawing Comparison- comparing yourself to others all the time and believing everyone else has it better than you.
- Past Failures- Constant reminders of your failures in the past still haunt you to this day. You are too afraid to do anything because you don’t believe in yourself anymore.
- Playing the Blame Game- You resort to blaming others for your failure. You always fail to take responsibility for your own actions.
But, remember, Getting caught up in your mind will never reap any benefits.
Beating yourself down with these thoughts is only making you YOUR worst ENEMY. So, just STOP overthinking, and step into Action.
Sprinting into action is the best way to break this endless cycle of negative thoughts.
Even small steps can be enough to ignite the spark of positivity in you. Ever heard of the phrase “fake it till you make it? The phrase applies to life more than you may think. When you face challenges, it encourages you to have more trust in yourself.
In the beginning, you will have self-doubt. But your courage to take risks INSPIRES CONFIDENCE in you and makes you more confident.
Thus, to combat your inner demons, take more optimistic actions in life.

So, quit wasting your life away by worrying about those things.
Rather, practice recognizing your negative thinking pattern so you can stop yourself in your tracks.
Ditch the Perfectionist in YOU
