Wait for it…(this is the best kept secret)
Wait for it…
The best way to achieve goals, dreams, and success is to just start to do something…take action!
According to Newton’s first law of physics: An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
I think that could be a law of success as well! People who are unsuccessful typically stay unsuccessful and those who are successful typically stay successful. It is not a matter that one person is much smarter than another person; the success comes because that person did something!
I don’t recommend that you stop reading or listening to podcasts because I think it is great to constantly improve. However, I do think is important that you take action!
Action is by far the biggest determinate of success more than anything else. We all sit around and discuss our dreams, but the only ones who are successful are the ones who take action!
Here are just a few examples:
I don’t think Joel is the smartest guy on earth (no offense if you read this Joel) nor do I think he has the best blog, but he did something. He took action and that is why he is so successful and that is why admire him so much.
Andy Traub– www.takepermission.com
Traub is one of those guys who just keeps taking action and connecting with virtually everyone! He is doing a podcast with Andy Andrews, writing a new book, and creating a lot of buzz all because he took action.
Dan’s story is awesome and if you haven’t checked out the great stuff he is doing then click on the link above! Dan lives Zig Ziglar’s motto – You can have everything you want in life if you will help enough people get what they want. And his success comes from taking action.
In review….the best thing you can to do to achieve success is to do something!
