I received a funny email last week that I want to share with you – because it highlights an important success principle.

After I sent out an email out to everyone last week, a reader wrote back and said, “Who are you? Did purchase a Personal Power CD set from you?”

So I went into my database, looked up his purchase history, and wrote back, “Yes, you did. Just a couple of months ago too.” (It said February)

Well, he shot off an email back to me: “Actually, it was more like a year ago. I’m going through the program again, this time with more focus and commitment.”

It was February…of last year!

Keith, how is what you’re telling me an important success principle?

It’s important because I hadn’t written my list of clients in a year.


Because I was trying to be perfect.

Know everything there is to know, have the perfect system set up, say the perfect things.

End result? I didn’t make any contact with any of my previous clients/customers.

So whether you’re in real estate or a personal development coach or an aspiring entrepreneur…it doesn’t matter.

Don’t let yourself be “Paralyzed by Perfection”.

Here’s my challenge to you:

Do ONE THING today that you know needs to be done and that isn’t going to be perfect.

At least when you look over the days events, you can say, “Wow, you know what? I actually started the ball rolling.”

Take A Step Forward – and don’t worry about the results.

You’ll be glad you did!

Next time, I’m going to talk about one of the things that is Absolutely Stealing Your Dreams AND Your Profits.

Unless you “take this bull by the horns”, it’ll be like you’re letting a thief into your house at night so he can steal all the things you worked hard to have in your life. I’ll tell you more about this “thief of opportunity” next time.

Make It Great!
