How to Become a Person Who Takes Action

Are you someone who spends more time thinking than doing? You’re not the only one. There are a lot of people who are more thought-oriented than action-oriented. This is not a personality trait that is set in stone. With some work, you can become a person who takes action instead of one who sits on the sidelines. When you find the methods that work best for you, stick with them. You might dwell in chaos and disorganization while more action-oriented people have it together and maintain their organization for anything-work, school, life, kids. Action people typically have more energy at the end of the day, whereas you start to feel yourself slow down as the day proceeds. When you aren’t organized, you reach the end of your day and wonder why nothing has been accomplished. You feel like you’ve put in a full day’s work but it doesn’t look like much was accomplished. This is because you spend so much time thinking about what needs to be done and how that you forget to actually put in the work to complete the task. The first step in turning yourself into a person of action is to get organized. This means all areas of your life, including work and the home. Keep to-do lists and always keep your priorities at the top. The feeling of satisfaction you will get each time you put a “done” line through those items on your list will uplift you and push you through to the end of the list. If you have something left on the list at the end of the day, put...

When No One Else Believes in You

The year was 1999 and things were not going according to my mother’s plan. Her only son was still in University (that’s what we call ‘college’ in Canada) at the age of 24 and when he spent the summers at home working in a factory to pay for his schooling, he would often stay out at the local bars until 3 or 4 in the morning, sometimes three nights in a row. Not only was he not living up to her dreams, she was worried that his behavior would lead to her worst nightmare, that her boy would end up drinking himself into irrelevancy like his father. She didn’t have a lot of faith in her son’s choice of schooling, either. At this point in her life, the only other Kinesiology graduate (my degree) she had ever met was the latest worker on the factory floor where she had been an office administrator for over 27 years. Was this the fate of her son as well? Earning $12 an hour in an unsure industry, one that could be struck by sudden layoffs? These thoughts terrified my mother. She was almost certain that I had wasted four years and tens of thousands of dollars getting a degree that would lead me back to the factory. But that was her nightmare, and her nightmare only. I knew everything was going to workout just fine. Why? Because I knew. I just knew. I never, ever, not for a single second, ever-ever had any doubts about my future. There were ZERO self-limiting beliefs in my mind. When no one else believes in you,...

How To Believe In Yourself

Welcome Googler! If you find this page useful, why not subscribe to the RSS feed for more interesting posts in the future? “What you think and say determines your personal power.” Before you can believe in yourself, you have to believe in a power greater than yourself. I call that power God, others call it the Universe or a Higher Power but no matter what name you give it, without a belief in something greater than yourself you will find it hard to believe that your life has a plan and purpose. Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless. Some excuses of people:- – I am very old to begin a new career. – I do not know enough to be in business for myself. – I won’t be able to handle it, I don’t know enough. – I can’t afford it. – I will never be able to get financing. – It will take too much time. – Dealing with all the details will be too time-consuming. – I don’t have the spare cash. – It is just too expensive. – The economy is too unpredictable. There will be challenges to face and changes to make in your life, and it is up to you to accept them. In Closing:– With every success, whether large or...
