7. Attitude Vs. Action
I’ve been talking a lot about thinking and you might be wondering where action fits into this process.
It’s true that you don’t get results without action, but recognize that thought precedes action. I always knew the actions that I’d have to take to buy those investment properties – contact realtors, visit properties, review newspaper listings and so on. But I never took the first step as long as I had a negative attitude. The instant I changed my attitude, I felt compelled to take action... and nothing was going to stop me!
That’s why a positive belief system is the starting point for the achievement of any goal. When your dominant belief is that you can achieve your goal, you begin taking the actions necessary to move in that direction.
