Take Action: Quotes and Advice

Take Action

“I never worry about action, but only about inaction” – Churchill

“Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.” – Renard

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me.” – Bombeck

“The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act and not react.” – Shaw

“It is not only what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.” – Moliere

How many times do you find yourself driving home from work or school frustrated with your job, your boss and hating it all. I know I have been there many times. As a school teacher I would call my wife and just rant at her about the rotten kids in class and how many days are left before summer break or how many more years I have to put up with all this @#$%#.

But the next day, like you, I would get up and do it all again; usually with the same result.

The Problem – INACTION

After hitting my head on the wall over and over again, I think I have finally figured it all out. (or at least a tiny part of it.)

If you keep doing the same thing over and over you will keep getting the same results, every time!

The Secret – ACTION

Like the quotes found here on the page indicate, Action is what is important. In order to create change you must take action.

It doesn’t matter if you want a new job, a better relationship with your significant other, a lean and mean body full of energy, or anything else you can think of. It is up to you to make those things happen.
Anyone that has ever been successful has the courage to take action and keep taking it until they see the success they want. They are not satisfied with the status quo and they know just complaining about it won’t make it better.

Even those “lucky” people you see who seem to get all the breaks really aren’t as lucky as you think. If you really look, they are always taking some sort of action, no matter how small, that eventually pays off. Most of us only see that payoff but we don’t notice how hard or long they have been working towards their goal.

Luck favors the prepared, those that take action. It happens more for those who are looking for it and who embrace change and take the action to promote it.

So stop dreading those things in your life you don’t like. Take action to change them or you so they become something you look forward to and enjoy.

You don’t have to rearrange you whole life. Quite often it only takes a little change here and there to make all the difference in the world.

I will leave you with this – It is easy to do nothing. It takes courage to change. IF you are serious about being a part of the change then challenge yourself. Have the COURAGE to face your fears – ACTION conquers fear!
