Step forward with action

Start now, not tomorrow or early next week or when you have the time. Now is when your time is, so use it now.

Sure, it’s important to plan and to prepare. What’s essential, though, is to put your intentions into action.

Even if you’re not fully prepared, there’s something you can do right now. Even if you’re unable to get it all done, you can get moving right away in a productive direction.

Action accomplishes more than just the immediate results it creates. Taking action seals your commitment and puts you in a state of solid, indisputable effectiveness.

Action lets you see and know, without the slightest doubt, how capable you can be. Though it’s great to tell yourself you can do it, action goes several steps beyond that and shows you that you can do it.

Your dreams and goals and best intentions begin to be truly yours only when you act on them. So stop just thinking about it or wishing for it, and step forward right now with real, solid action.

— Ralph Marston
