Is This Your Time To Take Action?
If you are sick and tired of the dreaming phase of things and are ready to take some action and get results...here is what to do.
1. Believe in yourself.
It is a fact that you become like the person you think and believe you are, and you achieve only what you think and believe you can achieve. You must believe that you can succeed at what you plan to do and that you are worthy of that success. Your attitude must be positive and it must be in alignment with what you want out of life.
When you think positively, your chances of success increase significantly, because you feel more positive and are therefore more productive. When you think negatively, you feel more negative and become immobilized.
2. Create time for your idea, goal, or project.
Your day is always going to have important things that you must attend to. That is why you must regard your idea, goal, or project as if your life or next source of income depended on it. When you perceive it as something of importance, it becomes a priority and you create time to work on it.
Prepare a "project/goal list," of the things you have to do daily, weekly and monthly to ensure that you accomplish your project, goal or idea. Then commit yourself to it and establish a time to work specifically on it. Make sure that it is a time when you are most refreshed, energetic and can work with minimal interruption.
3. Do at least one thing to move you forward.
Commit to doing at least one thing daily to help you move in the right direction. When the project or the idea you are working on seems too big, it can overwhelm and cause you to lose your motivation. In such situations, breaking it down into manageable bits and tackling one aspect at a time, makes it easier to accomplish objectives and to appreciate the progress you are making.
From the "project/goal list," you have prepared, check off the things you accomplish daily and what you have done by the end of each week or month. Once this is done, move on to the next phase of things.
4. Make contact with relevant sources of help.
Like in most successful undertakings, you will need someone who has the information, knowledge, or connections you require to help you move ahead with your idea or your goal. Whether it is a coach, consultant, a business contact you met at a networking event, a friend of a friend who works in the industry or the person or business listed on the yellow pages...make a phone call, send out an inquiry, set up a meeting, send out a resume, attend a workshop or find a way to make your intentions known.
When you are stuck, seek out these sources because they will fan the flames of your idea and provide you with an opportunity to move ahead faster.
5. Be willing to stick out your neck.
What you want to accomplish is important and is worth the risks you intend to take. You can no longer afford to shrink and hide in the background. You must overcome your fears and take risks. Even if you don't feel particularly confident about doing something, and are trembling in your boots, act confident and don't let it show. Take a deep breath, do what you have to do and get it over with.
The worst thing that can happen is that things may not go as you plan, but what if they do? Are you not willing to find out? You will be amazed at the opportunities that await you if you stick out your neck and go for it!
6. Push your agenda.
Be on the look out for potential prospects that may have an interest in the final product or service of your idea or project. Talk about what you are doing every chance you get, look out for opportunities everywhere you go, tell people what you are up to and what you want, people will remember you and let you know if something comes up.
Since you will have already announced what you are up to, you will have to live up to that reputation. This will motivate you to keep focused on taking action and accomplishing your objectives in preparation for your future success.

Opportunities for Success: A Nickel in the Road
Exercising is not one of my favorite pastimes but I know it's good for me. So every day I try to get outside and take a 2-mile walk. Most days I carry a small notebook and pen with me so that I can jot down the random brilliant thoughts that come to me as I stroll around the neighborhood.
Clues for Success: Finding Answers Right in Front of Your Face
An old fable tells about a religious man and a flood. As the water began to rise, the man's neighbor came by in a boat and offered to take him to safer ground. He politely declined, "God will save me." When the water had risen up to his second floor windows, authorities came by in a rescue boat. They shouted impatiently at him to get into the boat, but he sent them off, saying, "God will watch out for me." Later, as he sat on his roof with water lapping at its edges, a military helicopter hovered above him; a rescue officer was lowered to bring him up into the aircraft. Again he refused . . . and later drowned. When he reached heaven, he was furious and demanded a meeting with God.

Success -- A Secret and A Formula
Are you looking for the secret or magical formula for success? Do you think it's a well-guarded, password-protected valuable locked away in some private vault? Good news! In this article I open the vault wide.
Keys To Prosperity
Is it possible to get rich quick using the power of your mind? Sometimes, I think the only people getting rich are the authors of bestsellers with titles such as "Simply Abundant, Creating Prosperity and Miracle Power For Infinite Riches". However, we keep buying these books, because most of us have also experienced first-hand the consequences of a law of nature: do a good deed and it comes back to you. Do something mean and it comes right back at you to slap you in the face. Many of our minor wishes seem to come true -- "I'd like to have soup for dinner", or " Please let that cheque arrive in time to cover the rent." So why is it that when we try to mentally will more money into our lives, the kind of abundance that would have us set for life, that our mental powers seem to fail?
Preparing For Success
Everyone wants to be successful. Everyone wants to have more, be more, do more, and enjoy more of what life has to offer. We are driven continually forward toward the accomplishment of the things that are most important to us. The entire human race is a made up of people striving toward the realization of their potential in every area. Because of this, there is tremendous competition for the good of things in life. Everybody wants them, and no one is ever fully satisfied. The satisfaction of a want or desire leads automatically to a want or desire for something else. And it never ends.
Success Involves Ignoring Critics
Critics can destroy or inspire you. Your own self critic is often the most deadly critic of all. I was thrown out of the school choir at the age of 8. The teacher said someone was growling. She walked along the row and announced that I was the growler!

Vacation Your Way to Success!
All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy they say. It also makes you unsuccessful. The fact is that a well placed vacation can do wonders for every area of your life. I am thinking about this because I am about to go sit on the beach for a few weeks! So in this busy world, where we are driven to be producing all the time, it is good to be reminded that a break is sometimes the best thing to move us forward in the long run.
Knowledge Is Not Power
Whoever first said that knowledge is power was probably selling encyclopedias. Knowledge is a tool, like money and influence. Tools are only powerful if they are used effectively. How, then, do you make a headful of knowledge into a powerful tool?
The American Dream Model
The present model of business and career motivation, the one most closely associated with the "American Dream" which emphases enterpreuneurship, individual achievement, competition, and domination has been around for at least the last 50 years . Up to the mid 20th century, the predominant prosperity model was the Calvinist work ethic originally derived from the Puritan. The Calvinist work ethic emphasized hard work, saving for the future, and foregoing vacations, paying bills in cash, and foregoing luxuries to save for a rainy day. On the other, the motivation for moneymaking is no longer saving for the future, but, what Thornstein Veblen, the famous 19th century economist characterized as "conspicuous consumption." Luxury homes, luxury cars, fancy electronic gadgets, and exotic vacations create the illusion of wealth. The philosophy of the Amway Corporation, now known as Quixtel in the U. S. is a good illustration of the concepts involved.
Creating an Action Plan
So you've bought into the idea that you need to live life on purpose. You have an intention; you have goals. You know what you want life to be like five or ten years from now. But taking that first step to make it happen is daunting. Try this.
I Just Did It!
I succeeded. I achieved my goal. I am successful. I set myself a target and did it. I wanted to do it and I have. I am really pleased with myself. I am so happy I want to tell everyone about my success. I did really well. I performed the best I have ever done. I performed to the best of my ability today. I feel great and am so proud of myself.

Hows Work Going?
Think how often you see a friend or an acquaintance that you may not have seen for a few weeks or months and the question comes up: "How's work going?"
Action Speaks Louder Than Words
I have written much about how, in order to have more of what we desire in life, we must first do more and, that, in order to do more, we must first become more. In fact, the focus of the majority of my articles and books is about how to become more. I reiterate, time and time again, how important it is to acquire the specific knowledge of success if you want to have success.
