“Lots of people want to be the noun without doing the verb.”

When I first heard it, this quote struck me.

Powerfully.

I realized how it applies to so many of us.

For years, I wanted to be a published author.

But I didn’t want to write.

For years I wanted to be a self-employed, Executive Coach

But I didn’t quit my day job.

For years I wanted to lead retreats in Hawaii.

But I didn’t plan.

I wanted to be the noun, without doing the verb.

Where is that true for you?

Where do you covet the NOUN,

But dismiss, ignore, justify, hide-from, or devalue

The verb.

Turn it on it’s ear.

Focus on the verb instead.

The noun will follow.

Write.

Plan.

Speak.

Walk.

Run.

Ask.

Challenge.

Choose the verb.

Then DO it.
