Taking action is the only way to achieve goals
You can think about great ideas, have big, elaborate dreams, but if you don’t take action -- now -- nothing in your life will change. Your dream will never become a reality. Taking action is the only way you are going to get your business off the ground.
One of the items we talked about in my copywriting business-building teleseminar this week was taking action. You can think about great ideas, have big, elaborate dreams, but if you don't take action -- now -- nothing in your life will change. Your dream will never become a reality. Taking action is the only way you are going to get your business off the ground. Taking action is the only way you are going to get new clients. Taking action is the only way you are going to get noticed at your company and get promoted. Think about what you want and how you are going to get it…all of the time. It doesn't matter if your goals are personal or professional, setting your mind to the one main goal you want to accomplish will keep you focused on the outcome. You will constantly be on the lookout for ways to achieve that goal. Because it is always on your mind, you will be constantly brainstorming. Your mind will continually be looking for ways to take action on that goal. You become what you think about. Focus on one item, your one goal. Make it extremely positive, NOT negative. The next important thing, after thinking about your goal all of the time, is to take action. I try to do at least one action item a day. With three kids (four if you count my husband), a house to run and a growing business, it's easy for the day-to-day duties to suck up my time. It's easy for me to let life take over and not take proactive steps towards my goal. So I decided long ago to do at least one item on my list each day. It can be a small item to move me toward my goal. It may be searching for a new journal to run some of my marketing articles. It could be working on a new product to sell, coming up with a topic for a new seminar. Some days I do much more than one thing, other days I barely squeak the one item in. But I can assure you, if you do at least one item, if you take one action every day, you will be closer to your goal than most people you know. And because you take action towards your goal you are much more likely to reach it than those who don't. Copyright (c) 2007 A Marketing Connection
