Woody Allen is famously quoted as saying, "80% of success is showing up." What does that mean? If you want to get in good physical shape, and you show up at the gym, you are 80% there, because you'll probably work out. If you want to be a screenplay writer, you have to show up by putting words on a page. If you want to be a keynote speaker, you have to show up and speak in front of an audience, but first you must declare!
You must declare who you want to be, and then show up as that person. Back in January of 2013 I wrote a blog post To Be... You Must Do. It goes into more detail about this subject.
Who do you want to be? Declare you are that person, show up as that person, and be that person.
The video above goes into much more detail and the concept is a main contributor to my success.
