Taking Action is Critical to Sales Success

What we say we believe and what we actually believe are really two different things. My former pastor Rick Rusaw once told me that if you want to know what a person really believes in then you don’t need to waste time asking them. Instead just look at their calendar and their checkbook; because what we spend our time and our money on is what we truly value most. You see it’s much harder to lie with our actions than to lie with our words.I often write about how integrity, and the power of words, is the foundation of a disciplined life – yet commitments are empty without action. Taking action is the critical and often missing component of manifesting your dreams or ideas into reality. One of my mantras is:

You dream it, You speak it, YOU ACT, it happens. You dream it, You speak it, YOU ACT, it happens.

You dream it, You speak it, YOU ACT, it happens. You dream it, You speak it, YOU ACT, it happens.

Action is the critical element. Action validates your words, it erases your setbacks, and cures your fears. Developing the habit of taking action now is one of the simplest and most powerful ways to create unconditional confidence in our lives. In a state of a depressed marketplace we must respond to uncertainty with action. We cannot wait for the escalator of the economy to turn back on; rather we have to control what we can control, take action and take the stairs.

See you in the stairwell,
