Shortcuts To Success: The actions to take

Shortcuts To Success: The actions to take

“Exactly how much action is necessary to create success?”

Not surprisingly, everyone is looking for the secret shortcut— and equally unsurprising is the following fact: There are no shortcuts. The more action you take, the better your chances are of getting a break.

Disciplined, consistent, and persistent actions are more of a determining factor in the creation of success than any other combination of things. Understanding how to calculate and then take the right amount of action is more important than your concept, idea, invention, or business plan.

Four Degrees of Action

  1. Doing Nothing
  2. Retreat
  3. Take normal levels of action
  4. Take massive action

The First Degree of Action

“Doing nothing” is exactly what it sounds like: no longer taking actions to move yourself forward in order to learn, achieve, or control some area. People who do nothing in their career, relationships, or whatever they want have probably given up on their dreams and are now willing to accept pretty much whatever comes their way.

Despite how it may sound, do not assume that doing nothing requires no energy, effort, and work! Regardless of which degree of action you operate in, they all require work in their own ways. Signs that you are doing nothing include exhibiting boredom, lethargy, complacency, and lack of purpose. People in this group will find themselves spending their time and energy justifying their situations— which requires as much work as the other actions.

The Second Degree of Action

Running away from your goals

“Retreaters” are those who take actions in reverse—probably in order to avoid negative experiences that they imagine will come as a result of taking action. The retreater personifies the “fear-of-success” phenomenon. He or she has experienced results that were not fruitful (or that he or she did not perceive as fruitful) and has therefore decided to avoid taking further actions that might prompt this to occur again. Like the “do-nothings,” retreaters justify their responses and believe it is in their best interest to remain operating at their current level.

The Third Degree of Action

People who take normal levels of action are probably the most prevalent in our society today. This is the group that appears on the surface to be taking the necessary amounts of action and to be “normal.” This level of action creates the middle class and is actually the most dangerous—because it’s considered acceptable.

People in this group spend their lives taking enough action to appear average and create normal lives, marriages, and careers; however, they never do quite enough to create real success.

The goal here is average—average marriages, health, careers, and finances. As long as average works, they are fine with it. They don’t cause problems for others or themselves as long as conditions remain steady and predictable. Average, by definition, assumes “less than extraordinary.”

The Fourth Degree: Massive Action

Though it might sound far-fetched, massive action is the most natural state of action there is for all of us. Look at children; they’re in constant action, except when something is wrong.

Massive action is actually the level of action that creates new problems—and until you create problems, you’re not truly operating at the fourth stage of action.

When you are taking massive action, you aren’t thinking in terms of how many hours you work. When you start operating at the fourth degree of action, your mind-set will shift and so will your results.

You will know you are stepping into the realm of massive action when you (1) create new problems for yourself and (2) start to receive criticism and warning from others. But stay strong. This activity will break you out of the hypnotic state of mediocrity that you’ve been taught to accept. And in order to deliver at that level of massive action, you must take every opportunity that comes your way.
