What is the most critical step for your success? What is it that many people fail to do after doing so many things right?
In this video you not only get to see a beautiful day in Orlando, Florida (yes, just beautiful with a quick glimpse at Universal Studios and Harry Potter’s World) but you get much more.
I share with you from my own journey how I erred in doing many things right and missing some vital pieces. In fact, often it is that last, important steps that matters most. Without it, nothing else matters.
Take a look and I know you will enjoy. Please share this with your community so they can also benefit. They will thank you for it as you help them.
Thank you and I look forward to having you join me again. I appreciate you very much!

Also, to help you out even more, here is a transcript of this so you can gain even more from the experience. I sincerely appreciate you stopping by to visit. Enjoy!
00:00:01.890 –> 00:00:08.160
Well hello there, Terry Brock here at hope you are doing well. I wanted to share an idea, we can really help you in a lot of areas and matter of fact.
00:00:08.490 –> 00:00:18.810
It’s one thing that has helped me enormously because I’ve got to make a confession here. Sometimes it is too dangerous to do what is good and I can justify, but if I don’t take another step.
00:00:19.380 –> 00:00:26.430
Things just really don’t get done what I’m talking about here is, I don’t know if you can relate to this, but I love studying. You know I hate. Here’s my library. It’s
00:00:27.090 –> 00:00:34.620
Going to show you this is just one of them got about three libraries here and see my flags and all that kind of stuff. I really enjoyed learning. And hey, there’s a lot to be said for that.
00:00:34.890 –> 00:00:41.190
learning and growing. I’m a big believer of not only lifelong learning, but what I like to call day long learning
00:00:41.490 –> 00:00:48.690
Another it’s throughout the day. You keep learning you when you’re Ziegler said it. Well, when you’re sitting read when you’re moving
00:00:49.200 –> 00:00:55.530
Listen, and today we have such a wonderful abundance of learning materials on the net. Hey, you got a smartphone.
00:00:55.860 –> 00:01:05.340
You can create video like I’m doing right now on my smartphone and you can read lots of books, you can read great ideas from many different sources. You can watch videos.
00:01:05.580 –> 00:01:15.030
Learn how to do it. Some people. I remember I had to laugh Oh, years ago, people say, We’re not going to allow YouTube and our property here on our business because when people are here, they should be working not watching videos.
00:01:15.390 –> 00:01:20.370
And I thought, Gee, I sure hope my competitors think that way because YouTube is where you learn
00:01:20.760 –> 00:01:30.660
Yes, there’s stuff out there to waste time today, you can do that without turning on YouTube. When you block YouTube, you’re not able to get access to it occasionally see I work with clients. Sometimes they’re in a bind where they can
00:01:31.110 –> 00:01:39.660
But having said all that, it’s good to learn. It’s good to grow. I love reading my books here and going in and really doing it. I encourage you to do it.
00:01:40.080 –> 00:01:49.140
I say it’s good, but all of that is just mere folder all I’ll use that term that I was something that I think I heard my grandmother talking about easily, you know,
00:01:49.440 –> 00:01:58.770
It’s not a polite term, there’s some more colorful military terms that are out there. And I think you get with what I’m talking about here, but without this one important step.
00:01:59.370 –> 00:02:07.950
All that learning, you’ve done all the courses you’ve gone through all the great ideas, they’re worthless. And what is that I think you’re getting your don’t get ahead of me now.
00:02:08.610 –> 00:02:17.100
You know it’s take action. That’s it. You got to take action. That means if you just plan, you know, we’re going to plan you feel good about it. Oh, okay. We’re planning.
00:02:17.430 –> 00:02:22.980
We’re going to have a meeting to plan, the plan when we’re going to plan to do this plan. Yeah, right.
00:02:23.550 –> 00:02:30.570
That’s a bunch of nonsense. What you want to do is you want to get out there and you want to take action. You need to put action steps now don’t do something stupid.
00:02:30.810 –> 00:02:35.940
Do something that’s going to be reasonable and I like the idea of taking small steps first learn from that.
00:02:36.330 –> 00:02:47.100
Take those steps, get out there. Make it happen. Go for it. And then you can do some things. So that’s how you actually start to and not just taking action because then you can just be beating against when
00:02:47.370 –> 00:02:51.240
You want to take action that’s going to make a difference and really do that.
00:02:51.570 –> 00:02:57.450
Well, hey, before I let you go, I want to take you outside for a moment. Oh, I’m just walk with me here. Don’t get up like you have to, I guess, right.
00:02:57.720 –> 00:03:09.300
I’m gonna walk outside here and I want you to see what’s going on as we move around there. Oops. HOLD ON GOING ON HERE. HERE IS Orlando today. It’s a gorgeous day. I think it’s a temperature like around 84 degrees or so, something like that.
00:03:09.930 –> 00:03:17.700
And you get a chance to see here, what’s going on there, of course, is Universal Studios and Harry Potter’s world over there. You can see that
00:03:17.970 –> 00:03:22.770
It’s still there today and we’re looking over here. Hey last night. This is looking over toward Cape Canaveral
00:03:23.010 –> 00:03:29.520
Looking over that way, way over there at 245 this morning they launched a rockets looks like it was a successful launch
00:03:29.850 –> 00:03:36.900
And looks like you’re gonna be doing manned spaceflight again thanks to Elon Musk in the kids over there at SpaceX.
00:03:37.290 –> 00:03:45.480
And doing that there was a test today. We’re hoping to do it. They might not do it right away. But hey, this is the way things work. But you know what, it’s good example. They’re taking action.
00:03:45.810 –> 00:03:53.670
They’re sitting there and they’re saying, Okay, we got a plan. We got to do a lot of important things that really, really smart people are helping them with. That’s good.
00:03:54.150 –> 00:04:02.640
What you have got to do is take action. So here’s what my challenges do you sit down. Do your thinking. Yes. I’m not saying don’t plan.
00:04:02.970 –> 00:04:07.650
I am not saying just get out and start frenetically doing something without thinking it through.
00:04:08.130 –> 00:04:14.310
Know you plan out what needs to be done, but don’t let that be the in too often there’s a psychological reason say
00:04:14.970 –> 00:04:25.950
Okay, well we got our plan. Everything’s wonderful now know you’re maybe 25% or less completed 25% is a failing grade Sparky. Okay.
00:04:26.610 –> 00:04:32.430
What you got to do is figure out the action plan. Today we’re going to do this then tomorrow. We’re going to do that we’re going to get feedback.
00:04:32.730 –> 00:04:39.600
We’re going to find out what we did. Right. What we need to improve how we do it. That’s how you get results in today’s world.
00:04:40.290 –> 00:04:48.690
I want to hear from you. Hey, please share this please subscribe if you’re watching this going, Hey, I got not only has a good haircut, but he’s got some good ideas there to
00:04:48.990 –> 00:04:53.940
love to have you subscribe because we want to build a base to share this with people around the world.
00:04:54.210 –> 00:05:04.980
And that’s it. The second part, take action. I want you to share this with others, those that you think can benefit from it, many people today, sitting back just doing wonderful planning. Good for them are doing it right on that.
00:05:05.400 –> 00:05:14.640
But that’s not the end of the game. Get out there and take decisive purposeful useful action. What do you think I want to hear from you.
00:05:15.030 –> 00:05:27.900
Let me know. You can drop me a note, Terry. Terry Brock calm or on steam it on YouTube or on several different platforms all the major platforms. I want to hear from you. Let me know what you think. Thanks for joining me today and I look forward to hearing from you again.
