Don’t delay

We’ve all heard, and probably said, things like “I’m going to go on a diet as soon as summer vacation is over” or “I’m planning to start my own business as soon as I get some money saved."

Planning is important, but it is action that gets things done. If you just PLAN to lose weight, or just PLAN to start a business, it never happens. If you wait until the time is right, or all the circumstances are in your favor, it never happens.

The way to make things happen, the way to follow your dreams, is to take action. Today and every day. Find something you can do right now, today, that will bring you closer to your goal. Don’t put it off until the time is right. No matter how insignificant your action may seem, it gets you started in the right direction. Continue taking action every day and you start to gain momentum. Before you know it, you’re in so far that nothing can stop you.

What have you been putting off? Life is too precious to spend it waiting. Take action today. Do your dream now.

— Ralph Marston
