The Power of Acting Now

Results only come when you take action.

Don’t Talk About It

A lot of people talk about what they want to do. They talk about their goals, their visions, their dreams. They talk about the business they want to start. They spend a lot of time talking.

Talking is easy. But it doesn’t do anything to move you closer to your goals, visions, and dreams. You are better off taking massive action than spending your time talking. All talk and no action will get you nowhere.

Don’t Get Ready

You don’t need to get ready. You’re already ready. You are good enough now. You know enough now. What you don’t know you will learn along the way.

Most of the time when people feel they need to get ready, they are only avoiding what they need to do. And the root of that avoidance is fear. They fear they will fail. They fear they will be embarrassed. They fear that they aren’t good enough.

“Failure” is an event that leads to learning. You have nothing to be embarrassed about, even if you fail miserably. And you are enough now.

Don’t Overthink It

You need to plan. You need a strategy. You need to know what your end result will look like. You don’t need to spend countless hours over thinking things.

Wars are won on battlefields. Strategies are necessary, and tactics are important. Without taking action on the strategies and tactics nothing happens.

Don’t get wrapped around the axle over thinking what you need to do. Start taking action so you can capture some feedback and make adjustments.

Don’t Wait

The single, nonrenewable resource in your life is time. You don’t know how much you have left. If you’re going to do something you have to act now.

The biggest regret you will have later in life is not taking the actions you know you should take. You won’t regret having tried. You won’t regret having failed. You won’t even regret being embarrassed beyond belief, in fact, you’ll be proud of it.

You get to choose your future regrets now. Don’t regret having waited while time passed you by. The power is an action.

The only thing that produces results is action. If results don’t come, experience comes faster. And then the results follow.
