You may have great dreams, great strategy and plan. You may even have concrete goals for the life you want but without action, it is just a dream. Action gives fuel and wings for your dreams to fly. Taking massive action is a trait of all successful people. Most, if not all, people have the desire to achieve massive success but few get to do it. We all want the good life and each has a definition of what the good life looks like. In general we want good health, financial freedom, great relationships, to have peace of mind, and so on. Others want a life of abundance and prosperity.
“Everyone who has ever taken a shower has had an idea. It's the person who gets out of the shower, dries off, and does something about it that makes a difference.” – Nolan Bushnell
To impact the world with your aspirations, run successful businesses, live an extraordinary life, meet great people who are the movers and shakers in our world and do something great, and to leave a legacy, you have to take concrete actions consistently to achieve these things. To enjoy a life of opulence and have a great life requires taking massive action to achieve your goals. Most people have goals they want to achieve but don’t have the discipline to see it through. Others are fearful of taking the necessary actions needed to move the needle in the direction of their goals. You are where you are today because of the actions you have taken and you will be somewhere tomorrow because of the actions you have failed to take.
Your current results are not an accident but rather all the actions you took and those you did not take. How consistent are you regarding taking massive action? You may have all the knowledge and skills in doing something but without action you will not achieve much. You have heard it said that, “Knowledge is power.” I disagree with that statement. What brings power is the right knowledge applied consistently for results. If you don’t take action using the right knowledge, then you are not going to get the results you want. Most people have some knowledge; others have the right knowledge but don’t apply that knowledge or take action on the knowledge. It is those who use the knowledge to do something, solve a problem, change something, transform an organization, or create or innovate are the ones adding value and creating value in the marketplace. Having lots of knowledge you just keep in your head is not useful to anyone; until it’s applied it will provide little benefit. Do you want to accomplish great things in your lifetime? Taking action is a precondition for that to happen.
Here is your formula for massive results. Right thinking or thoughts + right feelings + right knowledge/skill + massive action = massive results.
When you take massive action, you get massive results. It all depends on you. There is a correlation between your belief system and your actions. Belief drives your thoughts, which drives your feelings which drives your actions, and ultimately drives your results. If you have disempowering beliefs it will impact your behavior and also the level of action you take. You can change your beliefs to drive your behavior and actions. There is a quote in the Bible which says, “If you can believe, all things are possible…” When you change your belief you can change your behavior and change your results by taking action. Fear stops a lot of people from taking action. To conquer fear, we need courage. Winston Churchill wrote, “Courage is rightly considered the foremost of virtues, for upon it, all others depend.” Fear is, and will continue to, hold people captive from doing what they want to do. Fear has always been and will always be the greatest enemy of all humankind. When Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” he was, in effect, saying that the emotions of fear, rather than the reality of what we fear, is the cause of anxiety, stress, and unhappiness.
Develop courage in the midst of fear and a whole new world of possibilities will open up to you. It is a natural law that if you do nothing, nothing will happen; if you take minimum action, your result are going to be minimal. But if you take massive action, then you will be rewarded with massive results. Successful people who started with nothing and made million will tell you that the key to success is taking massive action even in the face of adversity.
See you at the pinnacle of success!
