Success is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration.
”Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle”–Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the United States.
”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–English author, Art critic, and social commentator.
What seems to separate winners from losers more than anything else is that winner takes action. Nothing happens until you take action.
The world doesn’t pay you for what you know; it pays you for what you do. There’s an enduring axiom of success that says, ”The universe rewards action.” Yet as simple and as true as this principle is, it is surprising how many people get bogged down in analyzing, planning, and organizing when what they really need to do is take 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. You begin to attract others who will support and encourage you. All manner of good things begins to flow in your direction once you begin to take action.
Successful people have a bias for action. The problem is that too many people spend their whole life aiming and never firing.
