Take Action Everyday

Joleene Moody

“Your life will never improve unless you start making daily improvements.” – Lewis Howes

I’m a quote geek. I always have been. When I feel like the world is crashing down around me, I look for a quote that seems to fit exactly what I need to know in that very moment. Sometimes that quote shows itself to me.

     My hope is that Lewis Howes’ quote just did that for you.

     There are so many of us that have wants and desires but let those wants and desires sit on a shelf collecting dust because we don’t know what to do with them. We don’t know how to get to them. We may think they’re impossible to achieve or too hard to begin.

     And you’re right.  It may hard to begin. Which leads me to quote number two: “If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives.” – Lemony Snicket

     Very few people that start on the path to success know what they’re doing. It’s true. But it doesn’t matter to them because they know the answers will be revealed to them along the way. They understand that taking action every day is the only way to live life. It’s the only way to learn. There is no physical manual or blueprint that tells you exactly what you need to do to get started. But there is a soulful blueprint. And it lies within you.

     You know what you want. So take a tiny step toward it today. No matter what it is that you want to chase, there are a plethora of things you can do to start manifesting it right now.

Here is a list of things you can do to get started, no matter what it is you’re after:

  •  Read a book.
  • Ask someone what book you should read if you don’t know.
  • Ask a question.
  • Ask a question of someone who is doing what you want to do.
  • Watch movies.
  • Read some more.
  • Take a workshop.
  • Ask more questions.
  • Read more books.
  • BE CURIOUS.

     When I wanted to be a public speaker, I took the time to ask a speaker that was visiting a local school what she did to get started. She told me to buy a book on her website and begin there. She also invited me out to lunch and gave me an hour of her time to tell me more.

     Those nuggets of information were pure gold. They got me started and took me to the next level. Once I reached that second level, I asked more questions of more people. Up and up I went.

     So ask questions. Read books. And don’t rush the process. But do begin now, before your dream gets so covered in dust, you won’t be able to find it.  Which leads me to one final quote for you:

“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” – Will Rogers

     Better stand up and take action. Your dream is waiting for you.
