I was on a daily mindset mastermind call and one of the callers came out and pointed out that we’re doing all this mindset stuff, we’re doing visualization, we are repeating our Major Definite Purpose… and it always says that you need to come up with a plan.
Information Without Action is Dead
For example, in the Bible it says “Faith without works is dead.” (James 2:20) Which really just means that faith, vision, or mindset without ACTION won’t work. So the caller asked, “How do you come up with that plan?”
I thought that was a really good question because if you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re not going to get very far.
Here is what I did…
When I started going through the Major Definite Purpose and implementing a plan and action steps, I didn’t know what I was doing either! That is typical in this industry. You do the mindset, you follow your vision, you write down your goals, but you also have to keep an open mind. You have to be open to what is around you.
For example: When I first started my business, I started doing Facebook chatting and that is the only thing I did. Later, I saw other strategies come up and I kept an open mind and redefined my plan. Your plan doesn’t have to be the same forever, okay? All you need to do is keep an open mind and be willing to do and try other things. When I was doing mindset and personal development every single day, people started coming into my life that helped me redefine my plan. I moved into traffic exchanges and banners and all these things that failed me – then I got introduced to a concept called “video marketing.” Video marketing actually allowed me to finally break through and now I do webinars and videos all the time. I am an introverted person, so that is not normal, but I found the strategy through trial, error and listening to mentors that came into my life – because I kept an open mind.
Be Prepared to Refine
There are so many people that won’t keep an eye out for what is happening in the marketplace, they just stay in their own little focused area and they are not open to receiving the plans God or the Universe gives each of us.
Keep an open mind. Your plan will refine, but it is important that you take ACTION on all the different types of plans that come your way. I did a lot of strategies to find the one that I loved. That is what worked for me.
What has worked for you? Go ahead and share that in the comments below. I appreciate your feedback.
PS. If you would like to learn video marketing, one of my best friends and marketing buddies, Mark, has a great course. You can learn his video marketing system and implement it into your own business.
