Take Action and Change Your Life Take Action and Change Your Life
Recently my partners and I met with an equity investor who is interested in one of our commercial projects. During this very interesting meeting, we began to talk about different players in our marketplace. To make a long story short, we had some friends in common. One of them we’ll call Mr. S (to protect his identity), who has been in business for more than 20 years now. He is very well-connected both in the U.S. and Internationally. What this investor shared with us about Mr. S just floored us.

We found out that Mr. S has run several successful businesses over the years (including commercial real estate) and closed deals that have ranged from $25M to $300M. That is not what impressed me though. What blew me away is that Mr. S can’t read or write!

That’s right. Here is a man who cannot read or write, yet he has run several profitable business and done $100M+ deals!

Have you achieved that sort of success? If not, the bottom line is: YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE! If you’re serious about changing your life, you need to take action.

I am so tired of people coming up with excuses as to why they CAN’T do something. Wake up! God created you with unique gifts and abilities. Stop squandering your gifts and start being a good steward. Here are three simple tips to help you get results.

1. VISION: The Bible says that people perish for lack of vision. Your vision must include a purpose that is bigger than you. If you are bigger than your vision, you are missing the mark. Are you here to exist, or to leave a legacy? You need to be crystal clear about the benefits and direction of your vision. So ask yourself these questions: “What is my vision?” and “Will people be blessed after I am gone?”

2. NETWORK: History has proven again and again that the people who thrive are the people who work together. Did you know that most millionaires at one point formed an alliance with other people of the same vision to ensure their success. You need to be a person of value, which means that you offer value to others. When you become a person of value, people want to help you succeed. Ask yourself these two questions: “Whom have you formed an alliance with?” and “Are you a person of value?”

3. ACTION: Throughout the years I have met many people who do a lot of talking and never follow through. Why waste your time talking if you will never do something with it? I have also met with people who start to do the work but the moment a barrier pops up they give up and go home. Why would you waste your time talking about it and then starting something without ever following through to completion?

It takes consistent massive action to get to where you need to be. I can assure you there will be seasons full of turmoil and obstacles. This is the time when you have to keep TAKING ACTION! If you are not willing to take action and follow through, you might as well give up now. So ask yourself these two questions: “Are you ready to stop talking and start taking action?” and “Are you willing to pay the price to fulfill your vision?”

Mr. S reminds us that we have no excuses in this life, only opportunities. I pray that you would receive a clear vision, surround yourself with the right people, and stop making excuses and begin to see possibilities. Start believing in yourself and take massive action daily if you desire to reap the fruit of your labor. I believe in you. Will you join me and begin working toward creating your legacy?
