This hit me like a punch in the stomach
This hit me like a
punch in the stomach
The first business I built didn’t go well. I wasn’t doing “bad,” but it wasn’t great, either. So I sought out advice from someone who was successful in the areas I wanted to succeed at.
This person listened quietly…as I told him everything that was going wrong in my business.
I engaged in self-pity.
He looked me right in the eye and said,
“I know what your problem is…
you don’t want this bad enough.”
His words hit me like a punch in the stomach. It was hard to hear.
What I learned from that incident was I’d been spending so much time thinking about what I was doing, but I was not changing my thinking through acting.
Thinking by itself does not cause a person to be successful. You must take the actions that will cause you to be successful.
Whatever your desire is, you must take accurate ACTION in order to make it happen.
You must act your way into a new way of thinking…not think your way into a new way of acting.
Today, my company is known for helping people grow their business. We give them a strategy that will give them the results they want immediately. We help them build that foundation from a solid place.
However, this does not change their thinking. It’s not the “thinking” that makes the strategy work. It’s taking the action that makes it work.
Most people approach it by saying, “I have to change my thinking first…before I can take any action…”
They let fear stop them, and they don’t take action on their desire. They’re too busy THINKING about what they’re doing (or not doing)…instead of taking the action.
I recognized early on in my career that people want results quickly. I became known for helping them do this.
But it’s done by acting your way into a new way of thinking…not by thinking your way into a new way of acting.
What action can you take today to move you in the direction of your desire?
