For the short time that I've been reading this book, there has been so much I've already learned. The strategy outlined in the book is already helping me to get more done in my business.
The central concept of the book is to train yourself to stop overthinking and to start taking action fast. Fast is like within 5 seconds fast.
Let's say you want to start waking up earlier. You set your alarm for the time you want to wake up. When that alarm goes off in the morning, you take action without giving yourself time to think.
If you ever take the time to hit that snooze button or give yourself more than 5 seconds to take action, then you've already failed.
What Mel states in the book is if you don't take action within the first 5 seconds then your brain begins to give you reasons why you shouldn't.
What you must understand is your brain doesn't care about your dreams. All your brain cares about is keeping you alive. The way your brain does this is by keeping you in your comfort zone. Anything that pushes you beyond your comfort zone immediately sends your mind into a frenzy.
Your brain then starts to do everything to keep you from taking action. The defense mechanism kicks in, and the self-doubt kills any effort you make for progress.
By taking fast action, i.e., within "5 seconds" you give yourself a better chance to follow through.
If you've been online for some time, then you know the only way you to be successful is to take action. Most people when they come online think that all they have to do is buy a "gooroo" course and push a few buttons. They believe that by doing this money will start flowing into their bank accounts
It doesn't work like that online. If this is something, you can't accept I suggest you turn off your computer right now and go back to watching TV.
If you're a part of the crazy set who cares about adding value to the world through their work and are willing to take any amount of action to make their dreams come true, then you need to start taking action.
I dare you right now that idea you have in your head. Take Action.
That course you want to make. Take Action
The landing page you want to know coverts. Take Action
I guarantee if you stop overthinking and just start taking action, you'll make more money online. The biggest reason for failure in life is not trying.
So you don't know if the product will do good. You know how you'll find out? Take action create the course and put it out. See how much sales you get. Oh, you don't know if the page will convert? Create it and run some traffic to it. Check your results.
The people who are successful in life are those who fail a lot by taking action and figuring out what works and what doesn't faster.
The faster you take action and fail the more experience you'll gain.
Stop buying all these courses you already know what to do.
DO IT RIGHT NOW!
