“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
One person almost starts a project. Another person starts it. One person almost finishes a project. The other person finishes it. Failure can come from not taking action, in this case, getting started. It can come from not taking enough action to complete a project. Or it can come from taking the wrong action such as having an accident because we failed to stop at the red light.
If we fail, which we will, the formula for success demands that we take more action. It asks us to be creative and find a way that works. As Jim Rohn said, the miracle of the soil and the seed didn’t happen because of affirmation. It happened because someone took the action to plant the seed. Keep planting and you are taking the action for success. Your seeds won’t always find fertile ground. But when they do, you will reap a bountiful harvest.
