It Takes Action To Achieve Your Goals

The odds that you’ll succeed in achieving any of your goals without taking action are about the same as winning the lottery without buying a ticket!

For those times when you feel trapped, stressed, or in a prison of your own making, take massive, intentional, purposeful goal directed action. It’s the ultimate silver bullet.

In real estate, it’s location, location, location. In goal-setting , its action, action, action.

You can’t just stick out your thumb and hitchhike your way to success. You’ve got to roll up your sleeves and do the work that needs to be done.

Whether your goal is to be or not to be is largely dependent upon your actions.

The cure for the ills of procrastination is a heavy prescription of action, until the day arrives when your goals and their achievement are one in the same-until you cannot tell them apart.

Keep this in mind, a good plan will almost always get you in the door, but it is action that seals the deal.

It DOES take action to achieve your goals and it's great that we have people that are re-affirming this. There seems to be a group of thought that you just need to visualize and affirm your goals in order to materialize them. We know that just isn't true.

Taking action, consistent action towards our goals is what brings us the reward - living the life of our dreams. That takes work but it doesn't need to be hard. It's your dream after all.

Thanks for the reminder.

Well thanks for the comment. I stopped by to visit your blog and would like to add you to my blog.

It's so easy to visualize and affirm your goals.... But you really do need to take action in order to see results.

Again, thanks.
