Planning for success: Do what it takes!

I was scanning through my Facebook timeline last week when I came across the post below from Dax Moy. Dax is a leading Personal Trainer and Holistic Health Coach and posts some inspirational stuff, this one caught my eye and relates very well to the post on taking action that I posted earlier in the week. Here it is…

Are you ready to do what it takes?
What it takes to move your life from where it is to where you want it to be?
What it takes to build that business that’ll provide you the income you need to live the life you’ve always dreamed of?
What it takes to write that book, that song, that screenplay, that piece of music that you’ve always promised yourself you’d get around to but never have?
What it takes to get into the kind of shape you feel proud of seeing when you look into the bathroom mirror?
The truth is, everything you already have in life is the result of having done what it takes to get it. If you hadn’t, you simply wouldn’t have it now, right?
So why do you think those things that are eluding you and frustrating you are any different?
They’re not.
If you don’t have them, you’re simply not doing what it takes to get them.
You can change that… TODAY.
Just do what it takes.
Then do what it takes.
Then do what it takes some more and some more still until you have ‘the thing’.
It’s not rocket science.
It’s not complex.
Figure out what it takes then DO it!

The message is clear, you have to DO to get the results that you want; you have to take action. In the words of Aleksandr the Meerkat “Simples” right? Question is, are you doing what it takes or is something stopping you? If you are doing what it takes, carry on! Well done! If not…

Don’t know what to do or what it takes?

– Look for people who have already achieved what you want to achieve or done something similar. Study what they did. Maybe ask for advice. Get a coach or a mentor.

As has been covered in the Planning for Success series, some key things you can do to help and motivate yourself

  • Create a vision of what you want to achieve & what that will deliver for you – Where you want to be
  • Write down and commit to your goals that will move you towards your vision
  • Develop a plan and take action!

Then, as Dax so rightly says, DO WHAT IT TAKES! without action, your vision is just a beautiful dream, a panacea that will never materialise.

Having a coach or a mentor will help you develop your vision, goals and hold you accountable. To see how I can help you to succeed contact me via e-mail or call me on +44 7867 970562
