Take Responsibility and Take Action

I am reminded today by how powerful a simple thing such as taking action can be. I talked with a prospect today who had a huge amount of desire to have the six figure income and the lifestyle that I live. She knew exactly what her life would be like when she doubled and then tripled her income. But it stopped there, she just could not bring herself to take responsibility and to take action.

You hear all the top coaches talk about moving from where you are to where you truly want to be. They always say "if you want something you have never had, then you must do something you have never done." So my question is, why is this so hard to understand for people?

Your best ideas, thinking and actions get you to a situation where you are not happy with your life. Maybe you do not have enough money or maybe you have no time for your family, whatever the reason, you are where you are based on your thinking and your choices in life.

It is not an embarrassment to admit you are not where you want to be, what should be embarrassing is to realize you are not there and do nothing about it.

So to my point. Adults may want more than they have, but instead of taking responsibility, taking action to change it and giving up what it takes to have it, they frequently choose to do nothing. Sure they come up with some great excuses, but that is exactly what they are, excuses.

There is no excuse for not taking the action required to have what you want in life. There is enough of everything available for everyone to have exactly what they choose. It is all there for you. If others are living the lifestyle you would like to have, then there is no reason why you can't as well.

So suck it up, set your goals, set your sites and take action.
