How To Take Action and Find Success!

This was the first full post I wrote, November 28, 2014:


So a few years back I was at a point of frustration professionally as I desperately wanted out to be out of the golf business.  I was really tired of the long hours and working every weekend and just wanted out.  I had spent the better part of my adult life working at or managing a golf course.  I just couldn’t figure out what to do.

And this is a huge problem for a lot of people, especially those that feel like they are underachieving in life.  Many like me have made this statement, “I know I am meant for something better or greater than this, I just don’t know what it is.”  And it is at this place in life that can cause a tremendous amount of frustration when in actuality it should be the most liberating experience ever!  For it is at this moment that you have the chance to be or do something extraordinary.

If you want to be a writer, but don’t know how, register for a class at your local community college.  Want to start a business, but don’t have the capital?  Start researching online about how to develop a business plan.  If you fail to take action right now you will always be stuck where you are right now!!


I call this building Positive Forward Momentum.  When you step out and do one thing that starts the ball rolling, it is amazing how the ball picks up positive energy and away you go.  I know it sounds like common sense but you have to take action in your life to bring about change.  No one is going to do it for you.

Here is the way the universe works: 1. determine what it is that you want and state it, 2. determine what you are willing to sacrifice to get what you want, 3. develop a persistent attitude, 4. have faith, 5. develop organized planning and 6. execute.  It is a known fact that all successful people have desire, faith and persistence; not some, but all!  This plan that I use is an amended and much shorter version of the plan Napoleon Hill lays out in Think and Grow Rich…and it works!!

Reaching your goals or changing your job or making more money or meeting that special someone all begins with you taking action.  You must determine what you want, determine your sacrifice, believe in it to the death, be persistent and relentless, get organized and then take action.

  1. Adore this! I realised this a few years ago and at Christmas, when I lost my job, decided that was the Universe’s way of telling me I’m ready to start living the big dream! It’s still scary going it alone and not making money yet, but I think of it as my schooling, me education. When I’m ready the Universe will bring me the next part of my journey 🙂 Thank you for posting. xx

  2. I wholeheartedly agree with this post. It’s so easy to become stuck in a rut with the belief that things will change for you but it’s important to take active steps towards that dream too. I recently resigned from my job, in the pursuit of happiness (and my dreams), it was quite a bold move at the level that I had reached in my career but I’m already on a path in the right direction. So I can vouch for it working! 🙂

  3. Thank you for sharing this. I am at that point in my life right now. I know I was meant to do more than I am doing and I am beginning to really hate my job. Its time for some action.
