The DO part is the plan you decide on and the application of that plan.
The application of a new or better goal
The application of a new or better goal (ideas) takes courage (risk involved), because you are never sure exactly when you will see the fruit of your labor. You do not know how people will respond to your changing behavior as you apply your ideas. You might fear what people think of you, and how they will respond.
- What experience do you have?
- What will happen if you fail?
- Will the long hours be worth it?
- How sure are you that you will win?
All these negative concerns (responses) from people around you, must be blocked out and you have to surround yourself with positive people who are winning in their life.
Here are the 5 vital ingredients to your plan:
- Have a clear picture on your mind of your dream.
- Have it written down in the present time.
- Get emotionally involved with your dream.
- Dreams must be specific , and then set a completion date. (usually 5 years).
- It must be monitored from time to time so that you can stay on track.
Your dream must have these ingredients, otherwise it is not a dream, but merely something you wish for.
YOU GET IT BEACUSE YOU EXPECT IT
Believe and expect your goal. Do not let it just be a fantasy, but take a little action each day also that it moves from being a fantasy into being a theory which will then become an expectation which must be fulfilled. Read, learn until you gain understanding of how to achieve your goal.
Action tools for your business:
• Never give up – stay determined and do whatever it takes
• Understand your financial statement (report card)
• Understand the cashflow quadrant
• Understand the bi tri-angle
• Attract investors
• Build a team
• Get a mentor
I give meaning to each of the action tools in my talks.
ALL THE LEARNING & ALL THE KNOWLEDGE WITH NO ACTION WILL BE OF NO USE
What is the next step you have to take to move you closer to your goal? It would be to move you
out of complacency “your comfort zone”.
It could be starting a small part time business, or moving up a level to a bigger business,
but it always requires action (movement + risk).
Remember: Keep your eye (inner vision) on the ultimate goal (that star which you are shooting at) and you will find that you will adjust to the uncertainties of each step you have to take.
LET US NOT ONLY DREAM BUT LET US DO
What is the next step you have to take to move you closer to your goal? It would be to move you out of complacency “your comfort zone”.
It could be starting a small part time business, or moving up a level to a bigger business, but it always requires action (movement + risk).
Be brave, and do it. Luck is often referred to as the moment
when opportunity meets preparation.
If you have done your “homework” and see the business opportunity starring at you, then you must not hesitate, but be brave enough to make the decision and take the necessary action.
History shows that destiny only favors those dreamers who became bold enough to take action.
