Why taking action creates success

Updated: Jan 30, 2022

Paul Trotter, a certified life coach in Boulder Colorado offers 5 tips to create success in your life and stop procrastination.

Success is an option not a guarantee, as a life coach in Boulder Colorado I have worked with many clients who have been dealt a terrible hand at birth. While they should have been voted least likely to succeed, they have done extraordinary things despite the odds stacked against them. I’ve also seen the exact opposite, a man raised in the right home and environment, given the world on a silver platter but never did anything worthwhile. The difference between these two people is all about rather or not they chose to take the actions to get them from point A to point B. you act. Have you seized the opportunities that lay in front of you?

Before you jump into action mode there are three thing you need to ask yourself.

1. What’s your desired outcome? You can create moment but if you want to crush goals then you must know take actions with a particular result or outcome in your mind. How else will you know you’ve achieved it?

2. What does accomplishing this dream mean? What is your why? When you have a why, you can move mountains.

3. What will prevent me from succeeding? No one goes into battle unless they know what they are up against.

The reason many people create goals and fail to accomplish them is past failure, the risk of failing, and then the risk of success. As a life coach in Boulder Colorado here is what I tell my clients who are paralyzed by past failure “Failure is only a trial run to the success for the greatest of these, your journey.”

If you want to live a life that’s more then just mundane and mediocrity ten you must embrace the power of taking action.

The real reason most people are unsuccessful is once they see the price to pay for success, they don’t want it. Success isn’t for the faint of heart. Let’s look at 5 reasons why acting is important for success.

Success Tips From A Life Coach

“You only live once but if you do it right, once is enough.” Mae West

1. Actions allow you to shift

When a car is in neutral its stuck neither moving forwards or backwards. It’s easier to direct a moving car when its in drive or reverse. Your life isn’t much different yet many if us sit idol instead of moving towards our goals. When you hit the gas is when change starts to occur. When your active it promotes what you don’t see to become visible through intention motions.

2.Action Hits The Ignition Button

When you hit roadblocks and detours in life instead of developing road rage keep going. When you constantly fight against obstacles, your emotions are in overdrive. Anger and negativity will quickly stifle the opportunities before you. By continuing to navigate through the roadblocks and detours you establish habits that makes it easier to keep driving down the broken road until the roads become safer and smoother.

3. Allow yourself to wreck

As a life coach in Boulder Colorado, I often hear clients say “…But what if I fail?” people want success, but true success doesn’t come without failure. The people we read about who overnight became success failed a dozen times before being successful. We don’t hear all the story because failure is viewed in a negative way. The only failure is not trying, so when you try, you cannot fail or as Edison says” I have not failed, I have just found 10,000 ways that did not work” The greatest basketball player of all times Michael Jordan failed to even be chosen for his high school basketball team.

# 4 Action Induces Winning

There is no one who is afraid to lose that has ever won. Let’s look back at Michael, he missed over 9,000 shots in his career and lost 300 games. 26 times the Bulls trusted him to take the game winning shot and he missed over and over again. This is what lead to his success, and 6 championship rings. When you fail it keeps you refining your gifts and talents. In the fire is where winners are made.

# 5: Action creates the “NOW”

There is no need to put off tomorrow what can be done today. Many of the clients I work with as a life coach in Boulder have an issue accomplishing goals because of procrastination. Procrastination is the act of postponing decisions or actions. Its generally because of anxiety or the fear of failure. However, by implementing techniques it allows us to deal with the underlining issues so they can take the actions towards creating those dreams. The first thing to understand is waiting for the right time to do something is fruitily, “Let’s wait until we have enough money to get married.” or start a family. The issue is there is no right time, you will be waiting forever. Instead, we teach you how to take your day into your own hands and create your “now”. You get to decide how fast you move the ball forward by the actions you take that leads you to take the shot, and you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take- Wayne Gretzky
