Hi! Thanks for taking time to read this,I’m Presence, the host of the podcast, and before I talk about myself let me first share that It Starts with Action is more than a podcast. It’s a way of living. it’s about teaching what schools don’t. Confidence, self-belief, productivity, negotiation, leadership, entrepreneurial thinking and many other topics that are crucial for success but not a core focus in the education system. It starts with Action is all about sharing practical lessons from people already winning in life so you can too. It’s a community of ambitious action takers who choose not to settle but live the It starts with Action lifestyle.
As you can probably tell, the concept of It starts with Action is about taking the first step towards what you want. But as you may also know that it’s not that simple. The first step can be HARD. People often choose to give up on their dreams than take action. They delay action. Why? There’s plenty of reasons, some you can control and some you can’t. Fear, lack of confidence, limiting beliefs, perfectionism etc are often the reasons why we choose to delay action. Imagine how much you would achieve if you managed to overcome those obstacles. A lot! Life is too short to not do what makes you happy and fulfilled. It’s time to choose action over fear 🙂
The It Starts with Action way of living I’m trying to promote and help clients to achieve has more to it than just taking action. It means :
A – Awareness
The no.1 habit of high performers is that they are hyper self aware. They always question whether their actions and thoughts are aligned with their vision and if they can change anything to improve. They show up with authenticity while also not being afraid to face the truth and work towards self improvement.
C – Confidence
Confidence is another key trait of highly successful people. They have faith that things will work out and keep showing up as their best selves. They feel ready to cope with uncertainty and trust the process
( C can also stand for community which is also important – who you surround yourself with can change your life in drastic ways, that’s why coaching is powerful, you have someone by your side who is all in to help keep you accountable towards achieving success)
T – Tenacity
Great leaders aren’t just tenacious – they are tenacious for something. They are committed to a cause which helps them look beyond the obstacles. Consistent action is what creates results and to be consistent you need to be determined.
I – Intention
Without intention, you’re just living a reactive life. When you set the intention of how you want to show up, it gives you purpose, inspiration and motivation to achieve success.
O – Open
To get to the next level you need to be get rid of self imposed limits. By being open to dreaming bigger as well as accept the failures along the way, you will keep progressing.
N – Now
The best time to take action is now. Daily consistent action is what leads to big results. At the same time, living in the present moment and enjoying the process is what’s life really is about. ( Can’t not end the It Starts with Action lifestyle with Presence haha )
