I was privileged to recently attend the filming of Beyond the Secret as a guest of my friend Marcia Weider. We are proud to have her as the luminary today on Inspire Me Today. When you read her Today’s Brilliance you’ll see how she helps people do the most important thing possible- live the life of their dreams and get into action.

This was also the key message I saw being taught in ‘Beyond the Secret’.  Taking action is simply the most important thing you can do to improve your life. Without taking action you’ll find that year after year your list of goals remains the same and nothing changes very much.

Tools like positive thinking and creating your vision board are ways to get your train on the right track.  Once the train is on the right track and fueled up with the right attitudes and intentions, you still have to start the engine and move it down the track.  Otherwise the journey will never begin to lead you to the destinations of your dreams.  What’s the use of building tracks or having a train if it never leaves the station?

While our thoughts are very important, taking one action step will be more beneficial than many well-intentioned thoughts. With each action you take, you will be getting one step closer to your goal.

Each action you take builds exponentially on your previous actions to build momentum and move you faster.  The first action is the hardest.  After getting started you’ll move from taking a step to creating living habits.

Thank you Marcia for sharing your wisdom with us. We appreciate you!
