take action now

Take Action Now, Don’t Put It Off Till Tomorrow

Take action now, because you can’t take action yesterday!

What does that mean, really?

So many of us, and we’re only human with all the usual human frailties, promise to take action. And we always promise ourselves that we will do it tomorrow.

Because it is easier to put off to tomorrow what we should do right now.

It’s an easy excuse “I’ll do it tomorrow”. Yet how many times does tomorrow come and you haven’t done what you promised to do?

It’s not just you. Don’t beat yourself up about it. I am as guilty as everyone else of putting things off until tomorrow.

Over the years I’ve watched people who are action takers – people who get things done, successful people that everyone else admires.

I have noticed that these people have two attributes:

  1. They take action now

  2. They plan what they are going to do next

How different is that to the majority of the population who wander, aimlessly, from one thing to another, always putting off the disagreeable things (or what they imagine to be disagreeable) to tomorrow.

And isn’t it funny how anything that appears to be ‘work’ also seems to be something that you don’t want to do, right now? And that it always falls into the category – ‘I’ll do that tomorrow’.

Remember, ‘tomorrow never comes’

It’s always today. So, if you really want to do something, if you actually want to move closer to your personal goals, take action now.

You can’t take action yesterday, so take action NOW!

Become one of the action takers – become one of those people who get things done. It’s simple – all you have to do is take action NOW!

 

reach for your dreams

How to reach for your dreams

Today I want to show you how to reach for your dreams…

…and turn them into reality.

First, I have a couple of questions for you…

What are your goals in life? Have you ever thought about what it is that you want to achieve before you die?

Most probably you only thought about these things when you were young. You had plenty of dreams, then, about what you would do and how your life would turn out.

So, what happened? What has stopped you reaching for those dreams? Have your ideas changed or have you just settled for what you’ve got?

You see, part of becoming older is that we tend to accept what life has given us. And we don’t give a thought to what we dreamed about doing when we were young.

But what if you don’t like your life the way it is now? What if you are starting to think that your life should have turned out better than it has?

It’s time to turn to your dreams again. But, this time, make them more than just dreams – make them goals.

There’s a distinct difference between dreaming about what your life might be like and working towards a goal.

Dreams are but fantasies; as we get older we tend to consider our dream lifestyle as some sort of fantasy that can never be achieved.

You stop trying to reach for your dreams simply because you don’t believe you can reach that far

That’s simply because you haven’t made them real in your own mind. Everything remains a dream unless you make a move to turn it into reality.

So, today, I’m encouraging you to turn your dreams into goals. And the way to do this is to start thinking about what you really want out of life.

It’s too easy to say ‘I want to be rich’ or ‘I want to have an easier life’. Those dreams are too amorphous to ever become real.

Instead of saying ‘I want to be rich’ think about what riches would bring you.

What would you do if you were rich? Would you spend a lot of money on a house, or a car, or travel all the time? Or would invest it in giving your family and loved ones a better life with more opportunities?

Instead of saying ‘I want an easier life’, think about what that means.

Does it mean you want to give up your job and live the ‘laptop lifestyle’, running your online business from wherever you want to be? Or do you just want to retire early, confident in your online business bringing in the income you need to travel and visit friends and family?

It’s time to start putting these ideas down somewhere that you will see them every day. Create a vision board next to your computer or work desk so that it always acts as a reminder of the goals you are working towards. Or do what I do and put images and notes on your computer desktop so they are always in front of you.

The point of all this is to keep your goals constantly in your mind so that you actively work towards them. Dreams will stay dreams if you think that they will, somehow, magically come true.

Goals are real and can be reached as long as you take the steps to move towards them. In the next post I’ll show you how to start taking those steps.

Hello there!

 

I just wanted to kick of this blog by saying hello to you, my latest reader, because what I am focusing on, here, is success stories. And I think you can be part of that.

To an outsider my own life looks like a pretty good success story, at least from where I am right now. But what you don’t see is the background – the struggles that I’ve had to face to get there.

Frankly it is the same for everybody. Behind every success story lies a struggle. With most celebrities that struggle will be hidden, at least until they write their autobiography.

I’m sure you’ve had struggles of your own. Not everything has been plain sailing up to now. And, quite likely, you’re here because you want to find a path to success.

That’s where I can, almost certainly, help you. Because I’ve had my ups and downs, I know what it’s like to search for the one, true path – the road to success.
