“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”—Dale Carnegie
Action is what you get when you open yourself up to an opportunity and do something. Action is where you use all the actions and all the things that you have prepared, in anticipation of the chance. Together, preparation and opportunity, with action, yield results.
Without action, all you have is a missed opportunity. All the preparation in the world is useless if you fail to act. Having opportunities galore is useless if you fail to act. Taking action is that important.
So what can you do to prepare? What do you need to know, what must you be able to do, and what will make it easier to get the job done? What can you do to help the opportunity find you?
Finally, what will it take to overcome your fears and take action? Ask yourself these questions: what is holding me back? Am I afraid of the unknown? Scared of success? Afraid of failure or not getting what I truly desire? Once you can name what holds you back, you’re on the road to taming it.
Luck is when hard work meets opportunity. Take a moment to think of some areas in your life where you have been working diligently but not seeing any fruit. Make a list of these areas and ask yourself if you are doing everything you can to get the results you want to have. Take the time, find where you need to improve, make the adjustments and watch how your luck changes.
