Life rewards action. No matter how great someone is at thinking or dreaming, if it is not accompanied by action, there are no results. When you really want to get something done and done right, there's really only one choice. That choice is to overwhelm the situation with action.

Have you ever known someone who is so excitable that it's like taking a drink of water from a fire hose? I have a friend who is so passionate about his business that he just bubbles over with enthusiasm.

Guess What! He's incredibly successful at what he does. His secret is very simple, he takes Massive Immediate Action (MIA). If you talk to any productive sales person, they will tell you that most people don't take action unless you force them to do so. All of the emotional ploys and aggressive pop up ads are all intended to get someone to do something.

So, just by taking action, you are ahead of 80% of the population. However, if you want to be a 3 percenter (those who make more than $200K per year), you will need to learn how to take MIA every chance you get. This is basic. If you want to change your behavior, you have to break the habit of something that you are currently doing. Otherwise, you will just go right back to doing what you were before. The amount of effort that is required to break a habit is exponential compared to continuing with the status quo. Ask any rocket scientist, most of the fuel in a space flight is consumed during lift off.

Do this now, what is the one thing that you want more than anything? Write it down, then begin taking MIA. Don't stop there, do it for 30 days, then, it will be part of who you are.
