SE Out There. Take Action
I have two little boys who look up to me for guidance. And my actions are what will ultimately set the example.
I can’t look my kids in the face and say “shoot for your dreams” only to have them look back and say:
👨👦👦 “What did you want to be? And why didn’t you do that?”
I have to set the example! I have to show them it’s okay to take risks. It’s okay to put yourself out there.
I refuse to settle and say it’s because I was “comfortable.”
▶️ If you want to produce a podcast, and take it to the next level, DO IT! Take action. If you want to play professional sports, DO IT! But you first must take action. If you want to be more spiritual. DO IT!! But you must act.
For far too long I was guilty of a lot of talk (great ideas), and NO ACTION. My kids helped change my perspective on all of that.
It has been an absolute game-changer for me and I know it is a game-changer for many others!
SE’s Bottom Line: Have an idea? Create something. Think of a domain, build a website, start a podcast (or blog or something) and lean into it. If you lose interest or you don’t see it working, refine and/or start over. Just keep trying. And if you have doubts (which you will!), trigger that emotional why. Maybe it’s your kids and family like it is for Shane. To say it in two words: Take Action!
