“A little less conversation, a little more action.” ~ Elvis Presley
Like the King of Rock and Roll said in his hit song in the 60’s: … a little more action! Talking instead of doing and overthinking about how much there is to do instead of taking little action steps is where we often get tripped up. We see the overwhelming tasks ahead and think it is impossible to accomplish our goals, when in reality all we need to do is break it down into little tasks and take action.
For example, I need to lose one hundred pounds, which my lizard brain translates to starvation and a full-time job of exercising. Not going to happen captain! Well, what if I just look at losing one pound a week? Okay, lizard brain thinks that’s doable. Same thing applies to money. Can’t afford to put $100 a month in savings? What about one dollar a day? Doable right? Come on, you spend more than that on coffee or soda pop. I’m talking to myself here too. Tiny tasks!
I believe one of the keys to a rich life is to take fast and consistent action. Action is what separates the dreamers from the doers. Action speaks louder than words, which means what you do trumps what you say you are going to do. This not only applies to others, but to yourself. When you take action, you are keeping your word to yourself which is a great confidence builder and helps you have courage to tackle the tougher things you choose to do.
I took action within minutes of getting the idea to write the book that inspired this blog. I didn’t want to give doubt or distraction time to set in! Success follows swift action around like a bird looking for a place to land.
What do you need to take action on today?
It’s time for a little less conversation and a little more ACTION…
