“You don’t kind of let go, you don’t kind of ride waves. You either ride them or you don’t.”
~ LAIRD HAMILTON
I’ve played tennis since I was four years old and competed in college at UC Berkeley, on the Professional Tennis Tour, and, most recently, on the USTA Women’s Doubles 45 Circuit. These experiences have taught me one thing that I know for sure, as Oprah likes to say….
You have to follow-through if you want results on AND off the tennis court.
When you hit a forehand and stop your swing midway, the shot will be subpar. To hit your best forehand, you need to be in position, make contact with the ball, and then follow-through. This is a simple and proven principle for success on the court and applies to life as well.
The question is…
What ideas are you going to follow-through with off the court? You either do or you don’t follow-through. There’s no middle ground!
Having great ideas and doing nothing with them is similar to talking about planning a great vacation with your 80,000 frequent flyer miles and then letting the miles expire. Sounds silly, right?
We all have lots of great ideas — some of my clients want to change jobs, start their own side business, become an entrepreneur, create passive income, or make a difference and start a foundation. Some people are daydreamers and others are dream makers. The key is to make choices that align with your values and goals so that you naturally take action on your ideas.
Creating Top 1% moments is heavily dependent on your FOLLOW-THROUGH!
Winners have great ideas + put them into action.
What priorities will you take action on to “Live in Your Top 1%” and have your best year?
TOP 1% BOTTOM LINE: Think about what it costs you NOT to Follow-through on your ideas?
“Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.”
