Ideas Abound - But Youve Got to Take Action

Whether you are aware of it or not, we are all blessed with any number of wonderful ideas at virtually any given moment. What happens far too often however is that we ponder for a bit about the idea. We may even go as far as to plan a little about what it would take to make it work, yet for whatever reason we never take the most important step...

The step that makes it all happen, that is we don't act on it!

In every case I have studied there is one common factor that allows one person to reach their goals while another is left just reaching. That being that the "successful person" allowed himself or herself to be "lead" by their idea.

The simple truth is that if something is good enough to cross your mind, there's an extremely good chance that you will be successful in it and able to achieve it! Even so, one thing is for certain, if you never set out in pursuit of your dream you will never reach your intended goal.

We can pretty much sum it all up like this... goals + action + persistence = Achievement in virtually any endeavor.

So there you have it -- go for your dreams! Be your biggest cheering section if you have to, but don't sell yourself short. It's worth the effort it takes to make your dreams come true.
