Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.

Triumph over doubt

Every action you take, is a triumph of your courage over your doubts. Go ahead and make the effort. Go ahead and see it through. Sure you have doubts. Everyone does. They must not be allowed to stop you.

Idleness gives strength to your doubts, and as doubts grow stronger they immobilize you even more. If you let them, your doubts will quickly become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Yet as soon as you begin to take action, those doubts begin to lose their power. As soon as you start to make it happen, the doubts seem less and less real. Doubts may grow in your idleness to overwhelming proportions, but they have no power against your actions.

Take the first step and watch your doubts step back. Keep on going, and leave them far behind.

— Ralph Marston
