Everybody wants to be rich. Everyone wants to rule the world. Everyone talks about how they’re going to right the wrongs and make the world a better place. They want to do them. Really- they do. It’s that next step that causes so many problems.

The most effective way to do it is, to do it.

A few simple words can completely change the way a person thinks about things. A person’s success, self-worth, and impact on the world can be completely attributed to the way he or she thinks about things.

At first glance, the term ‘analysis paralysis‘ comes to mind…but I think that’s a cop-out. I think we, as a society, just talk too much. We ‘one-up’ each other by hypothesizing and neglect to see that the proof is in the pudding.

Do or do not. There is no ‘try’. Or so says Yoda.

It begins with the way we talk to ourselves. It starts with ‘I am’ and if you’re lucky it doesn’t end. It’s intentional loving kindness expressed to ourselves first, so that we can share it with others.

But loving kindness will only take you so far. Action and execution are still the real deal. You can read about it, discuss it, and plot it out. But if you don’t take the steps to make whatever it is happen, then it’s all fluff.
