Take Action – “Ready, Fire, Aim!”


“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” (Abraham Lincoln)

“What we think or what we know or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do.” (John Ruskin)

The world doesn’t pay you for what you know; it pays you for what you do. The universe rewards action. When you take action, you trigger all kinds of things that will inevitably carry you to success. You let those around you know that you are serious in your intention. People wake up and start paying attention. People with similar goals become aligned with you. You begin to learn things from your experience that cannot be learned from listening to others or from reading books.

You begin to get feedback about how to do it better, more efficiently, and more quickly. Things that once seemed confusing begin to become clear. Things that once appeared difficult begin to be easier. You begin to attract others who will support and encourage you. All manner of good things begin to flow in your direction once you begin to take action.

One thing that separates winners from losers more than anything else is that winners take action. “Ready, fire, aim!” Too many people spend their whole life aiming and never firing. The quickest way to hit the target is to fire, see where the bullet landed and then adjust your aim accordingly. Keep firing and keep adjusting. Soon you are hitting the bulls eye!
