“Meek, What do you think is the biggest reason people fail?”

I've often been asked, “Meek, What do you think is the biggest reason people fail?” 

I can easily answer this question with one word…inaction. 

It doesn't matter if it's caused by fear, laziness, circumstance, or any other excuse people can come up with. Inaction is inaction and inaction will not get the job done! 

If you're serious about your goals you'll take action. So many people want the prize but don't want to pay the price! 

Can I tell you a secret friend? It won't work. 

Dreams don't work unless you do!

And to the believers, I'm all for standing on God's word & promises, however God will show up when we do our part. The key is, we have to do our part! The book we read says faith without works is dead. Rather than sitting around waiting on God to bless us, we must work and give God something to bless!  

He blesses the work of our hands, are you giving him something to bless? Indeed, God is still in the blessing business but we've got to have some "skin in the game."  I think this philosophy is best described in the quote "Pray like it depends on God and work like it depends on you!"

Avoid failure… take action!

Get out there! Do something! Do anything. It will be okay if you make a few mistakes, none of us have ever been perfect. The important thing is you're on the move. Do something each day to get you closer to your goals. As long as you're doing something you're going in the right direction. but by God take action! 

The man of action will beat the man of theory any day. 


Don't be this guy! 

"The best thing you can do is the right thing; the next best thing you can do is the wrong thing; the worst thing you can do is nothing." -- Theodore Roosevelt.

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
