are you taking Action?
I know many people who listen to positive thinking tapes. They read great books by inspirational people. When they see you reading a Dale Carnegie type book they comment on how good it is. When you read these books and listen to these tapes I think it is great to absorb this knowledge. But action must be taken!
I believe in the power of positive thinking, and I think it is a great practice for everyone who is looking to get ahead in this life. It becomes a problem when you are constantly learning about motivation and positive thinking. How many books do you need to read to take action? How many Tony Robbins speeches can you watch on You Tube before you get up and get going?
This might be too real
This might be too real for you, but if you listen to Tony Robbins, then you know that he is a hard worker. He didn’t read a hundred books a year to get where he is. He didn’t listen to positive tapes his whole life either. He acted on and applied what he learned. How many different books do you need to read that tell you generally the same thing before you get to work on what you want?
Fear of not making it always slows people down. You think your idea is good, but then you convince yourself that maybe reading another motivational book will help you a little more. You must apply what you learn for it to be effective. What do you want to do with your life? You need to take massive action to make a massive change.
When you begin to take action and you pick up momentum, the forces of the earth get stronger against you. Your friends will say your wasting your time, while they are watching dancing with the stars. What’s dumb about that sentence is that you will believe them!
learn new skills, make progress. If you are sitting around complaining about your job, your life, or anything else, then you are wasting your time. No one ever got a new job by complaining about their current one. No one has achieved a better life by complaining about their current life. Take what you have in this world and build on it.
If you work you will win. The other guy is working while you are bitching. The other guys are consistent. Do you want to be a great sales person? Watch videos on sales techniques. Don’t just watch motivational videos. You can watch motivational type videos your whole life, but if you do not take action you will never get any where. At some point you have to take a step. Inch by inch it is a cinch, yard by yard it is hard. Take small steps until you reach your stride!
Thank you for reading!
