“The path to success is to take massive, determined action.”
- Tony Robbins
I have realized that I cannot do small. I cannot settle for ordinary. I cannot be complacent with the same reality as everyone else. There is just something inside of me that always wants to be the best, be the first, and be the only one. Most of this stems from my lifelong sports career and maybe the fact that I am an only child. Looking back on my 25 years of life, there has not been one single instance that I actually believed I could not be or do something I wanted. Ever since I was a little kid, my parents have instilled the proper values and encouragement in me that made me believe I could be anything I wanted to be. If it weren’t for my Mom and Dad, there is no way I would be where I’m at today. I am truly grateful for how they raised me. If I can raise my kids only 80% of how good they raised me, I would call it an extreme success.
Okay, back to business. What does it mean when Tony Robbins says, “The path to success is to take massive, determined action?” Does it mean that if you take small, undetermined actions you will not be successful? Yeah, more than likely. If you want to be successful, if you want to be a multi-millionaire by age 30, you HAVE to take massive and determined actions. Sure, I’m sure you have had plenty of those “million dollar ideas,” but how many of those ideas have you taken action on? Are you a millionaire yet? If not, then you haven’t taken action. If you have taken action but you aren’t a millionaire, it’s not that your idea was terrible, it could be that one part of your execution failed along the way. I will get deeper into this later on.
