Have you heard the popular riddle about five friendly frogs sitting on a log? Four of the five decided to jump off into the pond below. How many are left? Still five. The moral: there’s a lot of difference between deciding and actually doing. Good intentions are not enough, so strike a course and begin—and begin again, if necessary. Your true convictions are seen not in the words you speak, but in the actions you take. Actions are always the true measure of your beliefs.
What great accomplishments we’d have in the world if everybody had done what they intended to do! (Frank Clark – American politician)
The key required to achieve your goal in life is: action, action, action, yes massive action! Success comes as a result of an accumulation of actions performed by you every single day that will put you one step closer to achieving your overall goal.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. Prolonged idleness paralyses initiative; to the hesitant mind everything is impossible because it seems so. What you can do now is the only influence you have over your future. Everything great begins with something insignificant. Don’t be afraid to take small steps. Many times; the impossible is simply the untried. Take the steps that get you beyond the starting point. Soon you’ll get to a point of no return. Don’t let what you can’t do stop you from what you can do. So don’t just sit there, get moving, put legs to those dreams.
Even if you’re on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there. (Will Roger)
