There is no substitute for action

If you snooze, you lose!

Did you miss the boat?

How many times in your life – Recent or past – have you missed a great opportunity because you “didn’t move fast enough” or didn’t move at all?

My observation is that we all lean.

Some of us naturally lean forward INTO opportunities .

These are the folks who become more “seasoned” because their experiences tend to be more diverse and less predictable.

Of course, this isn’t the easiest path and subjects these intrepid explorers to more failure and defeat than others, but when they DO find traction, their lean quickly becomes a SPRINT to the finish.

These are the outliers – the daredevils – renegades – intrepid explorers.

The rest continue along their safe paths as witnesses to their wild and crazy ways.

These are the people who go through life leaning back, resisting change, and maybe regretting not having dived in when the water was warm.

These are members of the “The mass of men (who) lead lives of quiet desperation” club.

If your naturally inclination is to lean back (and I KNOW you know), I invite you decide to start choosing to take action sooner.

As you toil through your days, think about whether you are expending most of your energy moving away from people and/or opportunities . . .

or . . . is your focus only on moving towards the right people, places, and opportunities?

This way of thinking moves folks to action resulting in more encounters with the right people at the right times, in the right places, and all the right things begin to happen.

Here’s the reward: As you focus on leaning forward, those people and circumstances that you were sucking the life out of you such that you were consumed by trying to get away from them . . . Well . . . They magically fade away . . . voluntary deselection . . . because you’re not feeding them the drama energy they seek.

Opt IN and claim your personal path NOW!

The words “Regret – Resent – Drama – Bad day” suddenly leave your vocabulary.

Choose to Lean IN!
