People post on facebook – some too much.
People use their words instead of actions – some too much.
People take action – most not nearly enough.
We live in a world where it is all about the image. We live in the words we speak, the pictures we post and the life that we live through the computer. Rarely do we live on action. You are want you do – not what you say. You can talk (or post – same thing to me) all you want. It is your actions – or lack of actions – that shows me who you truly are. Most are lazy. Most would rather bask in the glory of instagram and facebook likes that bask with some sweat on their brow.
Less Talk More Action
Living on action means doing what you do for you. Not because it looks good on facebook. Not because it sounds good in a text message. Not because you need to make yourself feel better. But because that action will take you one step closer to where you want to be.
Do something, and take a vow of silence while you do.
Run a marathon without posting your shoes in instagram.
Join crossfit without checking in at your gym.
Do P90X without letting us know which day you are on.
Run your business without handing me a business card or telling me about your latest website update.
Become a vegan without acting like a dick when you go to order something at a restaurant.
Go paleo without posting 10,000 Paleo Muffin recipes to pinterest.
“No one would run a marathon if they had to sign a confidentiality agreement first”
Do it for you. Take that action that let your results speak for themselves. Make people come to you and say “Wow – you really trimmed down – what have you been doing?”. You talking, you posting pictures, you doing everything else EXCEPT getting results may make you feel yourself better, but at the end of the day, you are in the same exact spot as before, if not farther back.
I can’t speak for everyone, but most people want to move forward in their lives. They want to be better, healthier, make more money, have better relationships, take more trips, do more adventures – the list goes on and on. Yet most people just talk about things they want to do. No action.
Action cures indecision.
Take action. That fixes the issue you have of talking. Do something to send yourself closer to your dreams, but don’t tell anyone else. No one. This one is for you to get you closer to where you want to go in life.
I hereby challenge you.
I challenge you to do something big. REALLY BIG. And don’t tell a soul. Maybe your significant other, maybe your best friend, but that is it. Do this one for you. Figure out what you want, and go get what you want by taking action for you and STOP YOUR TALKING. Do something strictly for you, for your progress, for your life and don’t let anyone else know what you are up to. Let your results speak for themselves and then – ONLY THEN – only when you do something so big that people have to notice, do I want you to tell people what you have been doing.
