On Taking Action

The only difference between those who succeed and those who stay stuck is taking action. I’m always amazed at the incredible things people can do when they decide to act to make their dreams a reality. Here’s what some smart people say about the subject.

Annie Dillard:

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.


Moral excellence comes about as a result of habit. We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts.

Alfred Adler:

Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

Anatole France:

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

Ann Radcliffe:

One act of beneficence, one act of real usefulness, is worth all the abstract sentiment in the world.

Go out today and take action to make your dreams a reality, you’ll be glad you did.
