Take Enthusiastic Action

Yesterday I talked about the importance of gathering information and how important that is to getting a fast start.

The time and money you invest in gaining the knowledge you will need gives you the inspiration and confidence to move on to step two.

…And it also saves you time and helps you avoid the stress and frustration of trial and error! As they say, “Education isn’t cheap but it costs a heck of a lot less than failure!”

Today I’m going to talk about what to do with all your new found knowledge… After all what good is gaining knowledge if you don’t know what to do with it?

Step #2: Take Enthusiastic Action: Procrastination is the enemy of enthusiasm!

If you find yourself procrastinating about starting your painting business it may be because you don’t think you have what it takes to succeed or that there is too much to learn before you can get started.

This type of thinking will keep you stuck in your comfort zone! One thing I am constantly telling painting business owners is “Don’t over think things.”

It is easy to think of one reason after another why what you want to do won’t work… It simply doesn’t make sense to try to figure out what step two, three and four will be before you have taken the FIRST step.

When you begin by taking action on the first step and you do it with enthusiasm you quickly see how all that changes. You get a spark of excitement; you realize that it is not so scary after all and that you DO indeed have what it takes to make it happen!

So step #2 is to simply put what you learned during your information gathering phase into action, one step at a time.

Whether you choose to use Painting for Profits or some other home study course it comes down to what you do with that information (the actions you take) that will produce results.

Even the best information is worthless unless you put it into action. Once you begin to take action the next step is evaluating your outcome and using what worked to create momentum!
