Don’t tell people your dreams … Show them.

Morning everyone out there in lala land, I hope that you are awake and bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready to take on this Thursday.  I have my cup of dark roast in hand with the aroma filling the air like an old-fashioned coffee shop and am reflective as I always am at coffeetalk time.

You know, something that stands out to me in our journey is that sometimes we are a lot of talk about dreams, goals and aspirations and we have every good intention to meeting those things head on and really making special things happen.  Then when the push come to shove, we might fall off because of drama or boredom or just lack of motivation.

When most of us were growing up we heard the old adage of “Actions speak louder than words” and “You get out of it what you put in” and both of these are completely relevant to our journey here today.

If you are all talk and you speak of great plans and great things you want to accomplish, the time is now to take action and stop talking about it.  We only have this life and it is a very very short life in the grand scheme of things and we need to take advantage of the opportunities that we have in front of us and before us.  Prove your words with actions.  Prove your words with SMART actions so you can finally put those doubts and fears to bed and just put one foot in front of the other.

As for putting in the work and getting out the results, if I have ever been around sports people and highly motivated people, they have one thing in common, no matter how talented they may be, they always WORK perfecting their craft and honing their skills.  We need to do the same, if you continue to do the same mediocre action, then you will receive ethe same mediocre results so you need to change it up that you are putting in ROCKSTAR effort to receive ROCKSTAR results.

Are those results overnight?  Nope.  Are they hard to obtain?  Yes … Will it be worth it for you and your journey?  Yes completely.

Lets go out there and have a great day everyone and kick some thursday bootay!!

Oh and some exciting news to come with a new podcast I am creating for others to be able to hear me speak to the coffeetalk tune.  MORE TO COME!!

  1. I so enjoy reading your blog and listening to you every morning. I haven’t always put forth my best effort and that is probably why If I have met goal, I never stayed there for long. This time, because of all the encouragement I get from connect and your blog and others who give more of themselves, I find I am more persistent and motivated and I am confident that I can do this. Thanks for what you give us each and every day. Looking forward to your podcast.

  2. Shane, Congratulations on stepping right into your dream. I love the podcast idea.

    Wonderful advice on setting goals and taking action. Just the nudge I needed to revisit where I am on goal and dream front. So off to taking action and making what I want to do come to life!

    Thank you for the inspiration!

  3. I always come away from your talks with encouragement but today I had some “A-HA” moments. Will spend a little time this weekend regrouping and updating my vision board. Thanks again, Shane!
