Thought Without Action? Worthless….

My weekly email from Dan Kennedy arrived in my inbox this morning.

His comments about taking action in business are perfect and are a bull’s eye in terms of exactly what needs to be done to be successful.

Results are paid on actions taken.

Not on actions thought about and never taken.

Read Dan’s words of wisdom here:

“You never bet enough on a winning horse. In your own business, this is easier in some ways, harder in others – but the object is to act on what you see clearly, regardless of whether anybody else sees it or not, regardless of opposition, now not later or someday. Incurring risk of being wrong is essential for being right to matter. Incurring risk, mess, ire of others is what you get paid the big bucks for – not just for being right. Action is what you get paid the big bucks for – not just for being right. 

That gets to a very big idea: Identify what you can get paid the big bucks for. Do those things. Avoid doing other things. Simple, huh? Reminds me of the wise [person’s] advice to me about racing: “It’s simple son. Just get out ahead of everybody else and stay there.” Uh-huh. But look, really, how hard is this? You often, often, often know what needs doing, you know where the big bucks are. You are right. Now do something about it. More than just squawking.” 

Talent, genius and education are worthless without action. As Calvin Coolidge said:

“Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

Conviction towards an action, and taking that action, with clarity, are the keys to a successful life.

Believe in yourself.

If you do not believe in your own success, find someone who does believe in you, and listen to them.

Don’t die with the music still in you… back yourself.

Be committed.

Take action.
