We’ll also discuss the importance of taking action and being useful to others in achieving your goals.

The Importance of Deciding What You Want

Deciding what you want is the foundation for everything else. Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best: “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” Life has different seasons, and your decisions should reflect your current stage. It’s essential to identify the direction you want to go and the impact you want to make. Decision-making provides clarity, making it easier to map out the steps to achieve your goals.

Taking Action Once You’ve Made a Decision

After deciding what you want, action is crucial. Planning alone is not enough. Action involves communicating your goals, starting projects, and seeking feedback. It’s important to share your goals and being open to feedback from others. By doing this, you enable others to assist you on your journey and create opportunities for success.

Key Points:

– Communicating your goals helps to set things in motion.

– Feedback from trusted individuals can guide your actions.

– Actively participate in communities to expand your reach.

Being Useful to Others

One important strategy in achieving your goals is being useful to others. Offering value in others’ lives can create opportunities and open doors. Joe Polish believes that proximity—both physical and virtual—is vital in maintaining relationships and staying top of mind. The more useful you are, the more likely people are to support you and contribute to your success.

Key Points:

– Offer value to others to create opportunities.

– Maintain regular communication to stay top of mind.

– Build strong relationships to foster mutual support.

Real-Life Examples and Inspirational Quotes

I shared Keara Palmay’s inspiring story to illustrate these concepts. After battling cancer at a young age, Keara made the decision to take action in her life. She started a business, moved into marketing, and worked with notable figures like Tony Robbins. Her journey exemplifies the power of decision and action.

Practical Steps for Implementation

Here’s a straightforward framework to help you put these ideas into practice:

1. Identify Your Goals: Reflect on what you truly want and break it down into actionable steps.

2. Take Action: Start small if needed, communicate your goals, and seek feedback. Don’t wait for perfection.

3. Be Useful: Think about how you can help others and build strong, value-based relationships.


Deciding what you want and taking action are powerful steps toward achieving your goals. Being useful to others amplifies your efforts and creates more opportunities. Reflect on your goals, start taking action, and remember to offer value to those around you. By following these steps, you can create momentum and move closer to your desired outcomes.
