Action builds confidence

Great reminder this morning:

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence.
Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear.
Perhaps the action you take will be successful;
perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow.
But any action is better than no action at all.  – Norman Vincent Peale

What happens when Motivation meets Action?

For those of you that follow my posts, you know that I am a motivational junkie, and love to fill my life with thoughts and inspiration.

But what if all you have is motivation and never do anything about it?  Here are two of my all time favorite quotes that answer this question.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
 
“You can read clever motivational sayings all day, but that won’t replace you getting off your butt and doing the hard work.” – Darren Hardy
What I read from these quotes is:  When motivation meets positive action = MIRACLES HAPPEN

Why do we stare up the steps?

“Vision is not enough, it must be combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs.” ~ Vaclav Havel

I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I demand of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.” ~ Napoleon Hill
