If there was one problem I could pick out of any “average” person that would make them be more successful, I would take out the fact that they don’t take enough action.
The problem is that our society today expects us to have excuses for everything.
- “I didn’t send out those letters because I want to get my letter ‘just perfect'”.
- “I never called them back because I wasn’t exactly sure what to say”.
- “I didn’t start saving 10% of my income because I had too many bills”.
All of these are simply excuses you give yourself to try and make your life easier.
But guess what the #1 reason is for people being unsuccessful?
Lack of action!
Just think if you actually DID everything you wanted to do. Whether that’s study more, send out more letters, call more prospects back, or whatever it is.
This is the problem with the movie “The Secret”. Although the law of attraction is a very powerful thing, it won’t get activated without action. That’s the key that opens the door.
So, right now, make a list of 10 things you make excuses for. If you make excuses for eating bad, write them down. If you make excuses for why your business isn’t thriving, write that down.
Whatever your goals are, try to think of excuses you’re creating that makes you not do the actions necessary to complete your goals in their entirety.
You can even make a list by commenting on this post. That way you’ll be held accountable and you’ll be much more likely to do them!
Hopefully this post inspired you a bit and made you take action today.
Face your fears, do what you don’t want to do, and do it with a smile on your face.
To the life you’ve always dreamed,
