Time to take action and achieve business success

If you’ve been following my series of blogs or have downloaded my book The Keys To The Safe, you will be familiar with the following:

INFORMATION – Having the right “Information” about your business is like someone handing you the Keys To The Safe.

CONVERSATION – Having the right “Conversations” about that information tells you the ideas that need to be actioned  – which is like grabbing the keys and opening the safe.

But if INFORMATION is the keys to the safe and CONVERSATION is the act of grabbing the keys and unlocking the door, there still remains one more thing to do.

It is necessary to take the money out of the safe.

The money will not walk out of the safe and into your pocket!

It is necessary to take ACTION and achieve business success.

  • INFORMATION facilitates conversation
  • CONVERSATION identifies the actions to be taken
  • ACTION taken achieves results

Without ACTION, the rest is a waste of time.

You see, if you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep on getting the same old results. And if what you’re doing isn’t working, you need to do something different.

To achieve the success you want, to achieve your dreams, it is necessary to do the following:

  • To take action
  • To take that action with laser-like FOCUS
  • And to do so consistently and relentlessly

It is a common misconception that to be successful you need ideas – original ideas. But it isn’t true. It is also a common misconception that “ideas” are the hard part. That isn’t true either.

The reality is that ideas are two a penny.

Ideas are all over the place.

The world is littered with great ideas that haven’t happened.

How many people do you know who have had a great idea and never done anything with it?

Most people who have ideas do nothing with them.

The sad reality is that 99% of ideas simply never happen – and the reason they never happen is because there is no action.

The fact is, ACTION is the big driver of success. And the more focussed and consistent that action is, the better.

If INFORMATION and CONVERSATION crystalize the ideas that need putting into practice, the key to your success is to focus as much of your ACTION as possible on making those ideas happen.

The more focus you have i.e. the more your actions focus on the ideas that need implementing, the quicker you will achieve success and the bigger your success will be.

And if you can take that focused action relentlessly on an ongoing basis, you CAN achieve your dreams.

We’ve achieved so much in my recent blog series, and you’ll be excited to hear that in my next post; it’s finally time to look to the future.
