  Week 5 Introduction

Becoming a Person of Action & Consistency

This week is about becoming a person of action. That probably sounds simplistic, but taking action is often the last 10% that’s holding you back from success. Think about it. If you believe in yourself, you’re committed to your mission, you know your why, you have clear goals, healthy habits, and a sharp focus and you’re blocking out distractions — what could go wrong?

The only thing that could really go wrong from here is that you don’t take action.

Without action, nothing happens for you… it happens to you. Maybe you get lucky. Maybe you don’t. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to leave my success entirely up to luck.

Beyond a strong belief in yourself, taking action is the single most important thing you can do to become a more successful person. People who take action, make things happen. As this week’s quote says, “It is better to make something happen—good or bad—than to have it happen to you.”

This could not be more true. This course is the perfect opportunity to take action. It’s why every single micro-lesson contains an action item for you to incorporate into your day. You can gather all of the information in the world, but until you do something with that information, things will not change.

We learn by doing, not observing. If you want to be an artist, paint every day. If you want to be a writer, write every day. If you want to be a dancer, dance every day. Take action and keep taking action.

Nelson Mandela once said, “Vision without action is just a dream, action without vision just passes the time, and vision with action can change the world.”

You’ve already created a vision for your life at the beginning of this course. You know how important it is to take action. It’s time to now combine your vision with relentless action and then go change the world.

Goal of the Week

Develop a bias for consistent action.
