Zip It!

Stop talking about it ...

Too many focus on how sexy it would be to "make it" (whatever that means - we never make it, we only get better at it). Not enough > 1%, actually < do what it takes to grab ahold of what they want. That small percentage understand that talking gets them nowhere except where they were yesterday.

When will you make the committed decision to stop dreaming about a better life, game, or business? I'm not preaching from a place higher than thou ... I used to be that talker - that wannabe, who only wished for another level. These last few years, however, I've come to realize that my talk was masking the fear that absorbed my every thought. I "kinda wanted" a new level for myself, but wasn't willing to cut away my safety net. I had to get sick of what I saw in the mirror everyday, and CHOOSE a new place - a fearlessness that would reign.

No one can make this decision for you. I can hope to inspire and motivate you to a place where you choose in a quicker fashion, but only that reflection can make it happen. So, let me ask you again: When will you stop hoping and begin acting? When will you start defining your life by the walls you smash, rather than wishes you make?

Stop talking about it ... stop dreaming about it ... stop making plans for it's arrival. Start doing. Now.

That's one of my pet peeves -- people who constantly talk about what they're going to do but who never actually do it. It drives me crazy!

Thanks for stopping by. It's been awhile. Hope all is well.

Drives me crazy, too. Let our actions talk.
