Your Subtle Actions May be Determining Your Results

by Michael Berry on November 26, 2014

In personal development we learn that with action you create. What you may not know is that there are two forms of action.

There’s purposeful action, meaning that you take a specific action to create a certain result and there’s all these subtle actions we can take. For instance. If someone is attempting to sell someone something they can be taking the action to explain or to present in an attempt to sell and in their own mind they can see that they’re taking this purposeful action to get this result. But at the end of it they may not make the sale and in fact may make very few sales. And as a result they may feel they’re not able to create their life with their actions. But there’s another kind of action.

There’s the subtle action. The seemingly small things that are happening around the situation. So in this example of the sale, maybe the subtle action is the person really doesn’t believe in what they’re selling or maybe they don’t have experience with it and they themselves really don’t know what they’re attempting to present. They really don’t understand the real benefits of the product or the service. And as a result they have a little bit of confusion or understanding and they have a little bit of fear of their potential customer seeing this. So these little subtle actions that’s happening behind the scene that keeps the sales person from absolutely having their subtle actions and direct actions aligned in the presentation.

I see this happening all the time in our personal development business. People just don’t spend the time with the product that they should to experience the real benefits and they attempt to sell it. Bottom line is, the passion is not in their voice. It’s not what they’re saying but how they’re saying it and their subtle actions. I also see this when people do not attend their company conferences. They’re not fully committed to their business and will never get the results they’re expecting.

 Personal development is our business and our life.

Awesome post. It is true that these small things we do at times without even noticing may create an impact be it large or small. The sales person example is so good. If you do not believe in your product then who will buy?

Hi Michael,
Great post!!! Success and failure really come down to how you
see things. You either embrace them and take the necessary actions to develop the skill to accomplish your goal, or you can reject it, get frustrated and believe you’re not good at it.

Personal development has to be a constant in everyone’s
life if the want to be on top

Wishing you success,
Jeff Faldalen
