There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

Move on into action

Intention is necessary but not sufficient. Do the good things you intend to do, preferably sooner rather than later.

Planning is helpful but it’s just the beginning. For the planning to pay off you must execute the plan.

Don’t fall into the idea that preparation can be a substitute for action. Yes, do the preparation, and then do the rest of the work.

Is thinking about it getting in the way of doing it? Then the time has come for you to go beyond mere thinking and move on into action.

It’s great that your intention is purposeful and well thought out. Now cash in on the value of what you intend to do by acting on it.

You can’t demonstrate your commitment just by thinking or talking about it. Move on into action, and reap the many benefits that come from following your purpose.

— Ralph Marston
