HIDB 002: Do Action Better: Take The Plunge With Juan Pablo
What does it mean to be a person of Action? To paraphrase my guest Juan Pablo, a person of action is decisive; someone who can decide and take a step without perfect conditions being met.
I would agree with JP, though in my lifetime I can attest to struggling with “analysis paralysis,” procrastination, waffling and seeking perfect information before I made moves. The granddaddy of all these conditions is fear. I don’t have a problem admitting there were times that I have been scared to act. Embrace the Right Kind of Fear
However, despite my fears, I’ve pursued several business opportunities, How I Do Business, being one of them. I’ve had my share of failure, but it never stopped me from continuing to act in pursuit of my dreams.
My homie Juan founded “100 Percent Financed” and is an active and successful real estate investor. Since I’ve known him he’s been the type of person to come up with an idea and take immediate action to see if it has potential.
So, what separates people who act versus those who get mired in fear and don’t follow through. Tony Robins and Les Brown have a great deal to say about this. Robins asks, what are you more afraid of, the fear of failure if you act or the fear of not acting and having to continue living the mediocre and underwhelming life you’ve always had. Brown says life is full of pain, but if you are going to hurt anyway, why not do it in pursuit of the things you are most passionate about. I’ve included some links of these men speaking on this topic below that I believe you should check out. You’re welcome! The Blueprint
In our conversation, Juan and I broke down the steps for “doing action” right. We unveiled a simple blueprint, based on our life experiences and common practice, for setting a plan and acting to achieve our goals.
I’d love to have you as part of the HIDB community. Join the free Facebook Group and share with the community your plans for setting goals and taking action this year and beyond. Links mentioned in the episode
