Ever hear something that stops you in your tracks?
Dave Ramsey’s comment that “Information will not change your life” did that for me a while back.
Think of all the blog posts, e-books, and books you’ve read over your lifetime, and all of the courses you’ve taken. You might have highlighted the heck out of things, made notes to yourself, and gotten all fired up, but if that’s all you did, you’re probably still out there reading and looking for the magic words that will change your life.
But there are no magic words. Information is just information.
Action is the key
What will change your life is action.
Acting on the information you receive or seek out — especially acting with purpose, passion, and persistence — will get you places. When you want to make a change, you have to DO something.
Don’t let opportunity pass you by
Like the old infomercials say, “Act now”. Take the first step toward whatever it is you want to do, today.
(Ideally, right now.)
Whatever it is, don’t wait to take the next step. And don’t confuse taking yet another class with taking action. You’ve probably already got all of the information you need to at least get started. So go for it.
You’ll feel a whole lot better once you’ve gotten past the procrastination and into progress.
