Every luxury must be paid for, and everything is a luxury, starting with being in this world.

Taking action

You can plan and prepare and talk about it for weeks or months or years, but that’s never enough. Action is what will make it happen.

A verbal commitment is good and a written commitment can be powerful. Yet there is no true, effective, life-changing commitment until there is action.

When you take action, there is no guarantee of success. Yet when you do not take action, there absolutely is the guarantee of failure.

Act early, act often, act intelligently, act with persistence, and be willing to adjust your actions based on the results they bring. The only way to achieve the goal is to get in the game and make the effort.

Right now you have the time in this day. Fill it with effective, directed, focused, positive, purposeful action, and you’ll always be thankful you did.

Action will take you from here to there, from nothing to something, from dream to reality. Get up, get going, take action and make your reality the best you can envision.

— Ralph Marston
