If You Think It, Can You Really Achieve It?


Have you ever heard this...

"If You Think It, You Can Achieve It."

I've heard that phrase many times and that exact phrase is what I want to talk to you about today.

Do you personally believe this phrase?

You might be thinking to yourself... 

Why yes, I do believe it and I've heard it many times so it has to be true, right...

But, my question today is... Is it actually true and right?

I, like you, have heard this phrase hundreds of times and until recently I believed it, but then I realized something was missing from the phrase that I think will make all the difference.

I know you're probably thinking to yourself right now...

Oh great here we go, now we are going to get some English lesson or some let's analyze this phrase for a deeper meaning kind of thing.

And you would be wrong.

I don't ever write just to put as many words down on the page as possible.

Or, just to see a whole bunch of words so that when you get done reading something you're like what was that about again? 

Or, why did I waste my time reading that?

No, that's not me and that's not my style. I want you to honestly get the message I'm trying to write about in the least amount of words possible that's what I strive for each time I write something.

But let's get back to the phrase, shall we...

I personally no longer believe this phrase, or what it is saying.

I don't believe if you think it you can achieve it.

Because just "thinking" about something will never get you anywhere.

We can sit and think about things all day long and at the end of the day what would we have to show for it?

Nothing. That's right, absolutely nothing.

That is why I believe that phrase is wrong.

What the phrase should say to make it more valid and correct at least as I see it is...

"If You Think It, Take Action Towards It, You Can Achieve It."

I think the "Taking Action" part is what is missing to make this phrase correct. 

I honestly think the "Taking Action" part is what is missing from a lot of things in today's world to make things happen, but that's a post for another day.

So there you go, not too long, but to the point.

If you "Think" about things, then "Take Action" and put a plan in place and work on your plan, then you can "Achieve" almost anything or goal you might have in your life.

I know, I know, that wasn't very revolutionary or not a major "Aha Moment" for some of you, but I do think it was something that needed to be said.

So tell me what is something you've been thinking about a lot recently in your life? 

What action are you going to take towards what you've been thinking about?

If you achieve the thing you're thinking about what will your life look like then?

Leave me your response below in the comments or as always if it's easier for you, you can always reach out to me on social media and we can talk about it there.
