From Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog…Light, Camera, ACTION!!!

The key to success is action.  These principles work to bring about fast, predictable improvements in performance and results.  The faster you learn and apply them, the faster you will move ahead in your career- guaranteed!
There will be no limit to what you can accomplish when you learn how to Eat That Frog!” ~Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog, xiv

Its true, the words you just read, action is key.  You can plan the most elaborate idea out to the very last detail, but if it just stays on paper, then that is all that it is;  A plan on paper.  Deciding to take action, while it is great, and awesome if you’ve gotten to the point to decide; it is merely a decision if you never actually act.  So stop thinking, planning and deciding, just act.  Whatever you have been running your thoughts over, act.  Want to take a class? Then sign up for the spring semester.  If you want to pursue baking, bake a cake, decorate it like you’re in a competition and take a picture.  If the goal is so large you’re not sure where to act first, go back to your plan and start at step 1.  The point is START NOW.  Like the saying goes, Do not put off tomorrow what can be done today!  With that said, take the action to find your way to Happyville! Take Charge! Giddy Up!

Until then,

From Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog, We’re on our way to Happyville!

Success Is Predictable….I had developed deep feelings of inferiority and inadequacy.  I had fallen into the mental trap of assuming that people who were doing better than me were actually better than me.  What I learned was that this was not necessarily trueThey were just doing things differently, and what they had learned to do, within reason, I could learn as well.” – Eat That Frog, page xii

It is normal that we take a look around at the people who surround us and wonder what makes them so special.  If they are successful it is human nature to assume that they are “lucky”, because that is usually the general consensus.  We do not realize that these are not our own thoughts, but the thoughts of others, that have been repeated so many times that it because a false truth.  Its easy to say that someone else is successful because they have something you do not.  However, we are all successful, it all begins with taking the first step towards achieving whatever goal we decide to go after.  The difference between “winning” and “losing”, being special or not, is making the decision to act.  ACT.  If your thoughts lie with believing that everyone else is lucky, that you have all the bad luck, that things never go your way, STOP.  We are our own worst enemy.  Figure out what that special person is doing differently, learn it and see results.

Let 2012 be the year that we let go of all the silly notions of not being good enough.  lets GET IT!  Giddy up!  Happyville, hear we come!

Until then,
