Stop collecting and start producing!
Want to know the one powerful idea that could catapult your business to the next level almost immediately? You may be surprised, but it’s a no-brainer really…
It’s an idea that you take ACTION on. Of course, not every idea guarantees success, but here’s the thing…
If you’ve been in business for a while then you probably have one. We all do. It’s called an ‘ideas folder’ or a ‘swipe file’ or a ‘will take action on someday’ folder. No matter. What’s important is that (somehow) life always seems to get in the way… and all those golden ideas are soon forgotten.
Thing is that unless you develop a HABIT of taking immediate action, nothing will change in your business for the better. You’ll keep working the same amount of hours day after day and keep producing the same mediocre results. And, you know that that’s exactly what keeps you angry and frustrated in your business. So what can you do about that?
Try this for a change -
The next time you stumble across a cool idea, DO something with it. Here’s how:
1) Define the end goal. What are you trying to achieve with that idea? Be specific. Are you trying to drive more subscribers to your website? Do you want to lift the response rate? Do you want to increase your income by X percent?
2) Put a $ figure next to it. How much will that idea be worth to your business’ bottom line once it’s properly implemented. Whatever the figure, it needs to inspire and motivate you. If it doesn’t, then perhaps you need to set BIGGER goals that will.
3) Build momentum. Instead of planning every step of the way, simply decide what 3 critical steps you need to take to start moving in the right direction. Then take the first step immediately (meaning N-O-W), and schedule in the other two steps – one that you will do tomorrow, and the other you will do on the third day. That is important. You need to strike while the iron is hot – start taking action BEFORE life gets in your way again.
Keep in mind that ideas alone don’t produce results. Only ACTION can. Just a Fraction Of Action™ can get you almost anything you want as long as you keep doing it often enough.
You could read the best books, attend expensive seminars and listen to cutting-edge audio programs and still keep producing the same kind of results you’re producing right now unless you do one thing: TAKE ACTION. Take enough action to build momentum, and then watch what happens.
