Level Up Weekly: Follow Through
Updated: Aug 3, 2020
3 Ideas, 3 Quotes and 3 Questions (August 2, 2020)
Every Sunday, I share 3 ideas from me, 3 quotes from others and 3 questions for you to push the pause button and think about how you are showing up for yourself. The information I share is to help you to be intentional towards what you want to experience today and in the week ahead. If you are on my email list, you will also receive long-form articles on self-improvement and leadership.
I recommend that you use a journal or notebook to write down the thoughts and feelings that you experience each time that you read a Level Up Weekly post. It will help you to develop self awareness which is the catalyst for positive change.
3 Ideas from Me
1. You may have the talent of a genius but if you are not able to remain committed to a path of purpose fueled by a daily determination to win, you’re wasting your time, energies and talent.
2. It’s not enough to know what needs to be done, without follow-through all you have are good intentions. The habit of follow-through is developed through self-discipline and concentrated focus towards a specific outcome. Follow-through is what makes “it” happen and indicates that you’re “In It to Win It.”
3. Much of what you want to experience in life requires tenacity to make it happen. Tenacity is fueled by your level of desire to achieve a specific goal. Lofty goals can only be achieved by maintaining the required staying power to overcome roadblocks to your success.
3 Quotes from Others
1. Napoleon Hill wrote, “The starting point of all achievement is desire. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat. If you find yourself lacking in persistence, this weakness may be remedied by building a stronger fire under your desires.”
2. Mary Kay Ashe stated, “Those people blessed with the most talents don’t necessary outperform everyone else. It’s the people with follow-through who excel.”
3. Norman Vincent Peale stated, “ Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.”
3 Questions to Ponder
1. If you had 50% more confidence, what would you be doing that would be different?
2. What action step is the best use of your time at this moment?
3. If someone else came to you with your obstacle, what would you tell them?
It’s Your Move. Aspire Higher.
