Thought into action

Once your course has been determined, it is time to jump in. A moment's hesitation can lead to a lifetime of regret. The second guess is rarely the best one.

It is important to carefully consider what should be done. Then, you must turn thought into action. The quicker you do, the more likely you are to succeed.

Be wary of losing momentum. It is hard enough to put things in motion. In order to be successful, it is vital to keep everything moving in a positive direction.

There will be those who will do their very best to slow you down. Resist every attempt to do so. It is far too easy for everything to grind to a screeching halt.

The road to nowhere is paved with the best of intentions. If nothing comes of it, a dream is just a waste of time. Air between the ears accomplishes nothing.

Every step forward brings you that much closer. It does not matter how much energy you started with. The race is not over until you cross the finish line.

Closing the distance

It is important to be patient but it is never easy. The desire to do is strong, and the interest in waiting is weak. We must persevere for our wishes to come true.

Little of value can be accomplished overnight. It takes time and determination to see results. If anyone could do it, then it would not be worth doing.

Being forced to wait does not mean we should be idle. There is a great deal that can be done in the meantime. To be successful, one must put in the work.

When your efforts start to bear fruit, the real struggle begins. Now that you have something, it must be nurtured. Things grow or they wither on the vine.

Do not waste precious moments worrying about your chances. That which seemed impossible has been done before. It is up to you to make it happen.

Pursue your dreams, like a predator hunting its prey. Never let them get away. When they look over their shoulder, they will find you closing the distance.

Eyes to see

When you have an opportunity, run with it. The outcome could be just a slight improvement in your situation. Or it might be the means to turn things around.

Seeds are small and seem insignificant. Yet, from a mere acorn comes the mighty oak. It just takes eyes to see what could be and the determination to make it so.

We do not know what will happen, but it is evident what we must do. It is up to us to make this a better world. It starts by carving out for ourselves a better life.

If there are no opportunities, then create your own. Find a need, and be the one who fills it. Many success stories begin with this very simple phrase.

It might look like you are not making progress. Life twists and turns, and the changes appear aimless. That is because real life means working without a net.

There are forces which will bounce us around. Others just might work to our favor. But the only thing we can count on is our desire to make good things better.

Making things right

The best way to learn is by making mistakes. Then, you realize what is wrong and make it right. Those who do not err are not doing anything worthwhile.

People like to point out the failings of others. Perhaps this gives them a sense of superiority. Or maybe they are turning the attention away from themselves.

The ones who succeed do not indulge in excuses. They acknowledge their shortcomings and work to overcome them. People foolishly think they had it easy.

We all have problems that we struggle with. Finding the source of the trouble could mean looking within. A few minor adjustments just might do the trick.

It is not necessary to tear the house down to fix one loose board. Spiritual improvement can actually be quite simple. Do what is best and the answers will come.

We do not know everything, so errors are bound to be made. Still, it is shameful to know better and do the same. Take care lest your failings begin to take root.
