As I sit here thinking to myself what to write about today I am reminded of two words that ran through my mind day after day when my father lost all his money in the stock market a few years ago. I always thought to myself “why won’t dad just take action” and fix this situation. Regardless of where you are in your life in order to better yourself or your situation you must take action. Financial wealth doesn’t just fall in your lap, well at least not in most cases. Most often it requires YOU to TAKE ACTION to achieve the financial goals you have for yourself and your family.
I think of these two words every day. I am always meeting with people, brainstorming, and coming up with other business ventures online that can further my success in this industry. One thing that always comes to mind is that I must take action for any of these thoughts, ideas, or businesses to really materialize into anything of substance. Taking action is something that requires good planning, due diligence, and an open mind. You must be prepared for pitfalls because they will come no matter what you do in business. You must be prepared for setbacks and hurdles along the way; however, you must always remain confident and focused on the end result, achieving your goal. Taking action requires guts and determination and it sets entrepreneurs apart from the rest of the world. An entrepreneur isn’t scared to take action and work hard to achieve his or her goals.
In my life I took action because it was an obvious reaction to my father’s problems. He wasn’t going to do it and I knew no matter what someone had to take action in order to make the situation better. Dwelling on downfalls, financial problems, and other things won’t really get you any closer to being a successful entrepreneur than reading my book or taking my classes. The real key to success and becoming an entrepreneur is having the ability and right mindset to take action, and be prepared and educated before doing so.
I hope you all learned a little from this blog…… I just rambled on the thoughts in my head.
