“People often say that motivation doesn’t last.
Well, neither does bathing –
that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar
I’ve seen it time and time again. Two entrepreneurs who start their businesses at relatively the same time, similar businesses, both have similar backgrounds, yet one of them become much more successful than the other. What is it that the more successful one has over the other? It’s all around taking action…every single day.
As entrepreneurs, it’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day of running our businesses, that we can lose sight of our bigger goals. I see it with my own private coaching clients. There are those that work to stay motivated and take massive action every day. They are the ones who are willing to do what others aren’t willing to do, to get up earlier, stay up later, make one more call, attend one more networking event, step out of their comfort zone to do more speaking, or start a blog etc. And these are the clients who are consistently doubling and tripling their year over year income.
What’s enough action you might ask? I would ask you to answer these questions:
What opportunities are in front of you right this minute, that you are not taking advantage of?
Where are you falling prey to resistance?
What things have been on your “to do” list for too long, and by taking action on them immediately could help catapult your business in a big way?
The difference between a doer and dreamer is the amount of action that follows their visions. You must implement! Action is an issue of personal responsibility. You are solely responsible for the choices in your life and you are responsible for every action and non-action. You must accept that it is YOUR responsibility to take action.
So where can you be taking more action, starting today? Look at what you’ve been resisting, where you’ve stopped short, what’s been on your “to do” list for far too long. Make a plan, set a time limit for completion and get moving!
