Act it

You become responsible by acting responsibly. You become mature by acting mature. You become intelligent by acting intelligently.

You become confident, by acting with confidence. You become creative, by acting creatively.

What would you be doing, right now, if you were exactly the person you want to be? Do it, and you’ll be it. What would you be doing, if you had everything you wanted? Do it, and you’ll have it.

Your actions define the person you are. Winners are people who take the specific actions that make them winners. Whatever it is you desire, don’t waste your time trying to “get” it. Instead, “be” it and “do” it. Be the person capable of having whatever it is you want. Do the things necessary to accomplish your desires.

Don’t wait for fulfillment to come up and hit you on the head. It never will. Instead, do the things that will bring fulfillment, and you’ll have it.

— Ralph Marston
