Developing A Mean Streak

“The first and best victory is to conquer self.”
-- Inspirational quote by Plato --

We’d like to welcome you to the Motivational and Inspirational Corner Newsletter. This month we’re going to spend some time talking about the importance of developing a mean streak. Now don't get alarmed here, we’re not suggesting that you become a bit rancorous in your dealings with others. No, far from it. What we’re talking about is fashioning a mean streak where you mean what you say when you say it – and even more importantly, do what you say like you mean it.

"The thing done avails, and not what is said about it."
-- Inspirational quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson –

There’s no doubt about it these days, talk is cheap and there’s a whole lot of folks who routinely spout off about how they’re going to do this or that or the other. It seems as though these individuals are always “going” to do something, but when it’s time to get going, they quickly get lost.

Talking a good game will only get you so far. But sooner or later, and hopefully much sooner, you have to put up – or shut up. You either mean what you say – or you don’t. It’s really that simple. Winners are quick to make commitments and then back up those commitments with full fledged action – right now. Not whenever they get around to it – but right now. Not whenever they feel like it – but right now. They say what they mean and then show the world they mean it by making it happen. When? You guessed it – right now!

"A man who has to be convinced to act before he acts is not a man of action. You must act as you breathe."
-- Inspirational quote by Georges Clemmanceau –


What the world needs now more than ever before are people who back up their talk with immediate action. Not cheap talk, but decisive action. Not hot air, but high energy performance. Those people who do what they say they will do, the real winners in life who have developed a “mean streak” like we’ve been talking about here, are invariably the ones who also regularly stride into the winner’s circle in life.

"Our actions make or mar us, we are the children of our own deeds."
-- Inspirational quote by Victor Hugo –

How about you? How’s that mean streak of yours? When it’s time to put up or shut up, which do you invariably choose? Can you counted on when the chips are down? Can people place their trust in you to do what you say you will do – each and every time out?

"Be willing to make decisions. That’s the most important quality in a good leader. Don’t fall victim to what I call the ready-aim-aim-aim-aim syndrome. You must be willing to fire."
-- Inspirational quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson –

Never hesitate to take the shot. Make decisions, determine what you will do – and then go out there and do it. Mean what you say, say what you mean and always do what you say like you mean it. Once you get that mean streak in place, you’ll find that some really great things will start happening in you life.

"Most people spend more time planning their grocery shopping than designing their future. The basic difference between people who live their dreams and those who only dream about how they would live are the accuracy of their plans, their ability to generate new ideas and their ability to take action."
