Setting Goals and Taking Action

Action is the foundational key to all success.

–Pablo Picasso

Kabuki Jeff McBride Combo

Today, my friends, I share with you some of the insights I’ve learned, to help my dreams turn into realities.

You see, dreams are intangible… to make them real you have to take action.

This year can be a breakthrough year for you… but you need to know how to break through!

Master Bruce Lee helped many of his students break through to a higher level of excellence.  Let’s take a look at his action steps.

One of my favorite quotes is:

“You can do ANYTHING  you want… you just can’t do EVERYTHING  you want.” 

The path to mastery is a path of focus. Some of us are very fortunate to have found coaches, mentors and guides to help us on the path towards mastery.

Over the years, I have helped many of our friends and students focus on their goals and take action steps to achieve them.

Why do I do this? Quite simply…  I LOVE IT!

It is a joy to help people enrich their lives and empower their visions.

Here are a few practical articles that I highly recommend you read. After reading them…take the action steps to transform your dreams into goals, and your goals into reality.

Step #1- Get Sage Advice:

Lynn Miner is a real wizard. He is the new “Director of Development” for our school and is VERY wise in the ways of helping people make positive changes in their lives.

Lynn just wrote an exciting essay that has some impressive action steps for you to consider taking!

Another one of the quotes I live by is-

“A goal is a DREAM with a deadline.” 

Step #2 – Get your goals on paper!

Here is a very real and simple exercise for you to make a huge difference in your life:

Did you know that you are 42% more likely to achieve your goals just by writing them down!

Get your Goal

Our friend Mat Franco had a goal; he wanted to win AMERICA’S GOT TALENT. How did he do that? Focus and practice!
