Taking Action In Your Life

taking action in your life

Taking massive action in your life is the only way that you are going to achieve your goals, dreams and desires.

In this video, I am going to share with you why it is important to take action in your business and in your life.

One of the biggest obstacles that people face that prevents them from success is that they spend all their time learning.  Everyone thinks that knowledge is power, but unless you have a way of applying that knowledge to your life, that knowledge is useless.

Remember that doing IS learning.  Ask yourself, “If you do not plan on applying any of your learning, then why are you bothering to learn it?”  It’s time to apply the techniques and principles that you have learned and take action that will produce amazing results.

Wake up every day with the mantra, TAKE ACTION, and watch the results unfold in your life.

Video transcript

Hey guys, Stefan here from projectlifemastery.com, and in this video I want to talk to you guys a little bit about taking action, about taking action in your life. The only way that you’re going to get results in your life to achieve your goals, your dreams, and your desires is through taking massive action. One of the biggest obstacles I see a lot of people face, that prevents them from success, is that they spend all their time learning.

They think that learning and knowledge are power, and it is to an extent, but it’s really only true power when you take action and when you actually apply what you’ve learned. I think learning is great.  Learning has changed my life. I encourage you to do it, but you’ve got to balance that with action. Taking action is far more powerful.  You are going to learn so much more by taking massive action in your life, in your business and towards your goals, than you ever will from a book or from a video.

You don’t want to just be a keyboard jockey, a seminar junkie

One of those people that know all the theory, they know everything about whatever, but they don’t know how to actually do it, and they’ve never done it. You can’t be that person guys. You want to be the person that has the experience and that has the results. Often times, people think they need to know everything first before they do it.

You’re going to learn so much more by doing it than you ever will by just sitting there and trying to accumulate all the theory.  By doing it, that’s how you learn; you learn by going through the process, by going through the failures, by going through the trials and tribulations and the adversity. That’s how you gain the street sense and the street knowledge, which is far more powerful than what you read in a book.

You’ve got to be taking action guys.  Learn, watch videos, read books, whatever. Go to seminars, etc., but then take massive action. 90% of your time should be taking massive action, 5-10% should be learning and reading books, but again, massive action, that’s where the results happen. I’ll give you an example guys.  If you want to get fit and you want to have a great body, you’re going to learn so much more by getting in the gym than you ever will by reading books.

People think, “I’m just going to read books and watch videos on YouTube about health and fitness,”.  It’s not like you’re going to suddenly get fit by doing that. It’s not like you’re going to grow muscles and lose fat just by sitting on the couch, reading books and watching videos. You’ve got to get yourself into the gym, you’ve got to apply what you’re learning, and even if you don’t know all of the theory, you just get yourself into the gym.

You go for a run, you push your body in some way, that’s ten times more valuable than just sitting there reading books about it. Similarly, you want to learn how to play basketball.  Are you going to learn just by watching videos and stuff, or by actually getting on the court and shooting the ball? You’re going to learn so much more by doing that, you’re going to get better than you ever will by sitting there watching videos or reading a book on how to play basketball.  

I was in the dating and the social skills community years ago.  A lot of people, they know everything about how to approach someone, and get a date, and get a number, but these are shy introverted guys hiding behind a computer. They’ve never done it. You are going to learn so much more just by going on the street, going to the club, approaching someone, interacting, talking, pushing your comfort zone, facing rejection and facing your fear. You’re going to learn ten times more than you ever will by reading a message board, or by watching videos, or reading books.

Your life only changes by taking action

You’ve got to spend your time taking action guys. For me, I’m actually very careful about learning, because learning can be a trap. It’s easy to get caught up and just spend all your time learning and not taking any action.  In fact, one of the biggest problems that I see amongst a lot of people is that they get “analysis paralysis”. They learn so much that they become paralyzed, and they can’t take any action.

They’re just learning so much that they have information overload. I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced that before, you just learn so much that just don’t even know where to start. Again, you want to learn in small doses, but take action on what you’re learning, integrate it into your life, become a master.  Don’t just be the bookworm, be the master. Be the person that’s not just the spectator, be the person that’s actually in the arena.

That’s a person that gets results, not the person that is just learning and reading.  I’m being so repetitive with this because it’s so important.  Again, those are things that are great to do, I’m not saying not to do them, but you need to balance it. I know for myself, I read books for inspiration, to change my thoughts and my beliefs, but I’m spending 99% of my day in action, and 1% in learning information. I go to seminars, and I take massive action from that seminar, before I ever consider going to another seminar, maybe a few months after that.

I’m not just going to seminar after seminar, book after book, video after video, not applying anything.  Again, guys, I’m actually hesitant to learn at times.  I remember at different stages of my life I was like,”Man, you know what? I’ve learned so much, I’ve read hundreds of books, and Ive been through all this stuff, but I’m not getting the results that I’m after.” I said, “You know what? It’s time to put learning on hold, I’m going to stop learning, I’ve learned enough.  I can trust that I’ve learned enough at this point, now it’s time to get into action. I’m going to spend all my time taking massive action, and then when I want to learn again, I’ll come back to that.”

The biggest problem I see amongst people is not knowledge

You guys already know what to do, you already know what to do to get in great shape, to build a business, to take action, and achieve your goals. It’s not more knowledge that’s going to help you, it’s taking action on what you’ve learned. I work with people who have been through my training program, my courses, and they’re not getting the results that they want.

They go in there and try to keep learning. I’m like, “Listen, dude, the problem is not the knowledge. You have the knowledge that you need to succeed. You’ve work harder man, you’ve take more action in your business to get more results.” You can’t just say, “I tried here a little bit, now I need more information,”.  No. Take action guys, that’s where all the results happen. That’s where your dreams become a reality. Action. All right?

If somebody can actually count how many times I said ‘take action’ in this video, I  might give you guys a little prize, but I want to re-emphasize that again and again, take action, take action, take action. That should be your mantra in your head all day, all throughout the day, all throughout the week, all throughout the month. You do that, you take massive, massive action, and see what’s going to happen in your life.

Your life is going to change. That’s it for this video guys, leave a comment below. Let me know if you guys are taking action or if you guys need to change, and stop learning for a little while, and spend more time taking action. Let me know what you guys think. Again, I’m just creating this video for you guys.  I want to encourage you guys. I see this time and time again, so I want to push you guys further. You’re capable of more.  I see the potential in you guys, and again, it only happens with action. That’s it, guys, thanks for watching.

  • Hi Stefan

    Cool post (I preferred reading the transcript).

    I agree, we don’t take enough action. I think the “missing knowledge” is just an excuse for not taking action. So, what is it that really holds us back if it’s not knowledge? I think it’s mainly fear, facing uncertainty, and low self-confidence. What do you think?

    • Absolutely – fear is the only thing that stops us!

    Hi Stefan,
    I’m so happy and excited to watch your motivational videos. This really helps. I have my own belief but lack action. I’m sure I gotta change my bad habits to taking more action and reaching the goals. Thanks a lot for your sharing.

    Hi stefan you are so good and you had really inspired me to take action. I am following you from some time. I had made website a bit like you and in the same niche. Can you help me a bit by reviewing my site in reply and what i need to do to go further.

  • Casey Casteel

    Take more action!

  • Hi Stefan, I have been following your blog for the last two years and even though the progress has been slow, I have finally taken action and started my own. I want to thank you for continuing to make a difference in people’s lives. You are genuine and sincere in the way you help people

    This is very profound for me. I saw my cousin last weekend and I asked him “why has my life not changed? I don’t behave as I did before.” – he said the same thing as you (almost). I’m “not executing”. I saw this video today, and you added meat to the bones with your expansion by what you meant.
    Many, many, MANY thanks Stefan.
    I had fallen into the trap of being intimidated into thinking I must know more in order to put myself out there.
    Thank you, if you knew how much this meant to me. The focus of my studies have now changed as a result of these messages.
