Think and act

The greatest idea in the world is of little use unless it is acted upon. The most powerful actions and efforts are of little positive use unless there is some real, focused thought behind them.

Thoughts and actions work best when they work together. Thoughts give direction and focus to actions, while actions serve to manifest thoughts into reality.

Think about what you’re doing, and then do what you’re thinking about. It’s a simple enough formula, yet too often one part or the other gets left out. If you spend all your time just thinking and dreaming, none of those dreams will ever come true. If you spend all your time just working and striving, you’ll have nothing really meaningful to show for all that work.

So put some real energy into thinking and dreaming, and then put your energy into making it happen. You have a brain and you have a body, so use them both together for positive, productive results.

— Ralph Marston
