“Think like a man of action, and act like a man of thought.” Sallust

In essence, the late Jim Rohn declared that we should work harder on ourselves than we do anything else if we want to make more money, have a greater marriage, or live a grander lifestyle. This of course demands that we take aggressive action!

If we want to be the GREATNESS that God has created us for, we can’t lay around expecting it to happen. We are not “entitled” to this GREATNESS – HELLO!

Men, we must take action! But Where? In what areas of our lives should we take all out massive action?

I’m glad you asked. Here are some key areas that we need to become greater Men of Action:

 1.   PERSONAL INVESTMENT – The best way to grow yourself is to invest 10% of your income back into your own personal growth and development. If you can’t afford 10%, get started anyway with whatever percentage you can afford and work your way up to the ten as soon as possible. The point here is to get started NOW!

 2.   SPIRITUAL GROWTH – The key here is not to waste time on religious activity, but to personally grow yourself in the truths of God and His word. That’s right! I dare you to trust in your Creator and fall head over heals in a personal relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ!

 3.   DEBT FREE – Hate debt so much that you will get out of debt ASAP, and never go back to it. One of the greatest limiting factors for men today is their personal and or business debt. Debt is a taskmaster that imprisons and limits a man from reaching his fullest potential. HATE IT, get away from it, and stay free from it!

 4.   LOVE – Take action on love! 1) Speak love every day to your family and friends, 2) Show love by your actions and deeds to the world you influence, and 3) Give love away at random to those you come in contact with. Love is an action verb – so get going!

Action means get moving, so what are you waiting around here for? I’m done – get moving, but one last bit of wisdom:

“Don’t wish it was easier wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges wish for more wisdom.” Jim Rohn
