Take Action

Everything that has been a success in my life has come from taking action. I have a friend who is a teacher that inherited a room with a bunch of motivational posters around the room one of which is Wayne Gretzky’s “You miss 100% of the shots you never take.” While it’s definitely a little cheesy and over used (and I have just added to it’s over use J ) There is truth in that nugget.

All the successful people I have known take action.

If you want to be successful in relationship you:

Call up friends and invite them to dinner

You make amends or heal things as quickly as possible.

You are real.

You take action to grow the relationship.

If you want to be successful in parenting:

You learn all you can about being a great parent from other parents and books

You spend time leaning into your kids lives.

You structure your life so that you have time to be with your kids.

You spend more of your time doing the things that help grow your relationship

If you want to have a successful relationship with God:

You develop a loving relationship with him.

You take the message of Ecclesiastes to heart.

“Fear God and Keep his commandments for this is the whole of man.”

You put feet to your faith. In other words your faith works itself out in action.

If you want to be successful in business:

You take action towards your desired outcome.

You move forward doing things that will result in providing services to others.

You multiply your chances of success when you spend each day working on one project instead of working on many different projects at once.

Action + Focus is the key to freedom.

You will only experience the freedom you are looking for from business if you take action.

If you want to be successful in getting in shape.

You take action to change your diet.

You increase your physical activity.

You might have to make lifestyle changes so that you have the energy to exercise and put yourself in places where it is easy to eat right.

What are in your life do you want to grow more successful in today?

What is one step you can take that will move you closer to your goal?

Why are you still reading? Go do it. 🙂
