How to Fuel Your Follow-Through and Finally Reach Your Goals

David Nurse

Learn to take action by developing your unique strengths, seeking wise counsel, and eliminating hesitation.


In this Episode of The Human Upgrade™...

David Nurse knows exactly what’s holding you back from reaching your goals—taking action. And you’re about to be introduced to the nine action archetypes that explain your lack of follow-through. You’ll learn to identify your archetype, the way it’s affecting you, and how to use the right tools to get you moving forward.

David is an NBA Mindset Coach (and former professional basketball player himself), a Top 50 worldwide motivational speaker, and an author. He’s been teaching professional athletes and Fortune 100 executives how to develop unshakeable mindsets for the past 15 years.

“The traditional belief that hard work is the only way to succeed is flawed,” David says.

In his newest book, “Do It: The Life-Changing Power of Taking Action,” he gives you other options to explore and tells you why they work with an unconventional approach: “The heart is your armor. The brain is your sword. Together, working as one unit, this is what makes you a warrior: the brain and heart connection.”

Today’s conversation gets into how you can defeat fear and take action by using a no-fail formula to eliminate hesitation. This requires repetition (your daily habits) plus instinct (your gut feelings) plus trust (belief in the process). You’ll also get tools that will help you unlock your personal roadblocks and achieve your goals.

“Action is the gap of where you are today and where you strive to be to tomorrow. So right in between there is that taking action.”
