When Opportunity Knocks, Do You Take Action?

by | Jun 16, 2022

Want to hear a shocking statistic about getting results?

100% of people who don’t take action don’t reach their goals.

Insert shocked face emoji.

I know, it’s not exactly groundbreaking stuff but consider this …

Yesterday, two things happened …

1. We opened 5 more spots to our brand new beta coaching program and 3 spots were claimed within the first 90 minutes.
2. The Shred with Em & M challenge sold out.

If that doesn’t illustrate a distinct difference in those that reach their goals and those that don’t, I don’t know what does.

What I mean is this …

When opportunities present themselves, certain people pounce.

They know they want something. They know it’s important. So, when they see the opportunity, they take advantage.

No hesitation. Just action.

On the flip side, there are certain people that SAY they want something.

That complain that they don’t have something they want.

That are frustrated and stressed by their current situation.

And yet, when opportunities present themselves … crickets.

They delay. Hesitate. Make excuses. Then do nothing.

Here’s where it really gets interesting …

Those same individuals will then see the successful people achieving the results they desire … and will project.

They’re so lucky. They must be genetically gifted. That would never work for me.

The reality is … the ONLY difference is that little necessary thing called action.

They took action. You didn’t.

They took advantage of an opportunity. You made excuses.

That’s it.

That’s the long and the short of it.

To get results, take advantage of the opportunities!

“But Mike, you don’t know my situation!”

You’re right … I don’t.

But you still can’t escape this truth no matter how you slice it.

I can assure you that regardless of your situation, we’ve had clients in a tougher spot.

You have kids? Cool … we have clients with up to 11 kids.

You blame your age? Cool … we have clients crushing it in their 60’s.

You work two jobs? Cool … we have clients working two jobs while being single moms.

The main thing our clients have in common is a determination to get what they want.

They’re not going to roll over and let life pass them by.

They’re not going to complain about their lack of results without ever investing in themselves and getting in the game.

Maybe you’re not ready for that.

If that’s the case, that’s more than ok.

However, it’s important to assess whether you’re truly committing to what you say you want …

Or if you’re avoiding the REAL action that’s required.

It’s ok to avoid taking action. It’s ok to pass on opportunities.

It’s not ok to do those things and then complain about your lack of results.

Hope that makes sense.
