Movement is the beginning of success. The best movement happens during radio silence, the exact opposite of too much input. Christmas music is already in the ethers. It’s in the airwaves. We have to tune the dial to the right station to receive it. Movement or massive action is also in the ether. It is inside your body, it’s in your mind, it’s in the airwaves, it’s all around you, but you have to tune it in by turning off all the other channels. Tune out every other channel and get busy, get moving. Movement happens when you turn off every other station because you can’t think with noise. Make a decision and then move, take a step, and create because you don’t get good, you get done.
Listen to the podcast:
We started a second podcast called Today’s Growth Classics, where the most downloaded and older podcasts are moved because iTunes can only hold 300. Since we’re at 305, we’ve moved one through 25, including our very special embryo, episode number one called S-Curves, which is the most downloaded podcast of all 300. It’s now housed in the Today’s Growth Classics. This is episode 305 entitled Movement. Episode 304 was around Decision Constipation, where you can’t quite make up your mind because you’re overstimulated by too much input from your team, your spouse, your kids, the blogs you’re reading, the conferences you’re attending, and the books you’re reading.Movement is the beginning of success.

You got way too much input. You can’t quite make up your mind of where to go next. Movement, which is the beginning of success, the best movement happens during radio silence. The exact opposite of too much input. In the airwaves there’s country music, jazz, Talk Radio, if I tune the radio dial into 98.3, I’m going to get WCCQ, the country station. If I turned 93.9 in, I’m going to still get Christmas music. Here’s the thing, do we agree that Christmas music is already in the ethers? It’s in the airwaves. We have to tune the dial to the right station to receive it. Movement or massive action is also in the ether. It is inside your body, it’s in your mind, it’s in the airwaves, it’s all around you, but you have to tune it in by turning off all the other channels.
After the very first website I built by myself, TodaysGrowthConsultant.com, it’s still up. I read blogs, I watched YouTube videos, I figured it out. I had no technical skill in my body. I got that website to rank highly strictly on the quality of my content and my consistent publishing of new articles. Meaning, I wrote this on growth that, on growth this, on growth that. I was consistent and Google honored me because they could tell people were not only reading my content, they were sharing my content. I knew that moment I could convince a thousand other people to partner with us. I knew I could talk people into saying, “You build the website, or you go buy us something already making money and you keep it going and we’ll fund the deal.” I knew I could talk people into funding a website that my team could build, and it would grow and grow because I had the model already built in my first one.
I literally tuned out every other channel and I got busy. I got moving. I moved literally. Everybody said, “A thousand websites, no chance. Where’s your team? Where are your SEOs? Where are your content writers?” My answer to every one of those channels was, “I have no idea, but I will find them.” When we started, there was nobody working here that had ever built a website, that had ever managed a website, that had ever grown a website, that had ever even touched a website. We contracted even our basic business website. We contracted that out to a young man in Illinois. Movement happens when you turn off every other station. There’s a phrase, “Isn’t it amazing that a man with definiteness of purpose goes through life and watches as the world steps aside and then comes beside and helps him with his aims?”That is none other than Napoleon Hill from Think and Grow Rich.
You can’t think with noise. You can’t think with five radio stations playing at the same time. You can’t think with five advisers all giving you input or your spouse giving you input. You make a decision and then you sprint. You make a decision, a thousand websites, and you sprint until you have a thousand websites. You make a decision and then you move, you take a step, you create, and you go. You make a decision and you don’t get good, you get done. We still suck at many aspects of web building, web design and content. We’re terrible, but were good enough. We’re good enough to the point where if you add up all our good enoughs, were freaking amazing. We’re awesome.You don't get good, you get done. Click To Tweet
This is the ultimate cue tip moment. You make one decision and you manage the decision daily with massive action. Let me say it again. You make one decision. Make a decision, but then simply manage the decision daily with massive action. You know what most people do? They make a decision, especially around this time. I’m going to make a decision. Here’s what I’m going to do, and then three days later, because there’s friction called life on planet Earth, they make a new decision. Then there’s friction for that, then they make a slightly new decision. Do you want to win, do you want to kill it, do you want to grow, do you want to hit the Inc. 5,000 list five times in a row as a mature company, selling different products every other year, here’s what you do. You make a decision and then you manage the decision daily with massive action until the decision is executed. It’s that simple. This is episode 305 called Movement. I hope it helps.
