Take the Reins

1391695_10152310111853696_1434208032_nLife is about choices and control. About 80% of daily actions are beyond anyone’s control, but the 20% is the critical mass. Take control of it to rise up for what is best for your success. You know the results that you desire and have planned what needs to be done. Take the reins, it is your responsibility to become the Better You!

The simplicity of choice so amazingly easy it is deceptive, the part that most fail at is the follow up action. Choosing to sit and complain or simply talk about an idea, like a social justice whiner, does nothing but exacerbate the issue. That is basically choosing to do nothing. The only discussing that needs to be done is with an experienced partner, friend, trainer, or coach to determine the plan for success. That is action because

“Failing to plan, is planning to fail.” -Alan Lakein

Write down what is to be done, this makes it real and tangible. With the plan of action in hand it is just a matter of time and effort. There will be those events that come up, rain, car problems, soreness, that are beyond control and working the plan despite any of these is what must be done. Using stickitivity with the plan will only make the results certain. Stand up to any distraction!

Act wslamith the end in mind and know the results that make up the dream. It must be seen in the mind before it can be seen anywhere else, that is vision. Only you can see the goal, write it down and make it specific so you know that . Everyone else has the sight of you taking responsibility, building discipline, and controlling results.

  1. “Choosing to sit and complain or simply talk about an idea, like a social justice whiner, does nothing but exacerbate the issue. That is basically choosing to do nothing.” Unfortunately, some of us, myself included, can be confused into thinking that if we “feel better” after talking/venting/processing that we’ve actually done something. The hard work is actually *doing* good, not simply *feeling* as if we’ve done good.

      1. Thanks, Clifford! I think of this concept often to keep myself in check. For example, when my husband’a previous boss was just awful, I so wanted to give her a piece of my mind when my husband moved on to a better position. It would have “felt” great to tell her off! But it would have done absolutely no good. Darn it 😉

  2. One thing I like about rural panama is the choices are easy. I’m 90 miles from a McDonald’s. Makes it way easier for me. Check this out today panamaminute.wordpress.com. I love this place.
