Action Precedes Success
Action is the foundational key to all success.
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done. ~ Bruce Lee
If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience. ~ Deepak Chopra
Vision is not enough, it must be combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs. ~ Vaclav Havel
I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I demand of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action. ~ Napoleon Hill
Are you are ready for a change? Just start. Do something to start the change. Don’t worry about if you are making a correct decision. It doesn’t have to be a correct decision. Once you take the initial step (right or wrong) you will be guided. The correct decisions will come to you. But not until you take that first step. Just start.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” ― William Hutchison Murray
