How Action Beats Inaction

Life has a funny way of working, people complain that life is not fair, yet they celebrate when they triumph over others.

Perhaps life isn’t fair for a reason, maybe life isn’t fair because life rewards those who are willing to grind and hustle for what they want. 

I hear a lot of people who complain about their lives, they keep on saying how “crappy their job is,” and “how they hate where they are at,” yet they don’t do anything about it!

Come on, you know at least one person in your life that is like that.

I am going to keep this short and to the point…

… You will never go any where in life if you never take action.

What if all of the slaves said, “I will always be a slave, and I will never have my own rights,” where would they be now?

No where.

But instead they took action, they got off of the sidelines and started to take control of their lives, and began to demonstrate that they should have rights and that they are just as equal as others.

If ideas come to your mind, try them!

You can never go wrong with trying a new idea, your mind is always floating with new ideas, and you never know, one of those ideas could take off and be successful.

Stop thinking about the “what if’s” and the “could be’s” and start taking action for those “what if’s” and “could be’s.” 

Imagine if Bill Gates said “Hmmm..I wonder what would happen if I worked on this software?” And then never took action for that idea. Where would he be right now?

No where.

Instead of thinking about all of the things that could and could not happen, just take action now for them.

Do not wait for tomorrow, or the next week or the next year, because that opportunity will be gone.

The Importance of Taking Action

You can never fail with taking action, because if you have never taken action, then you have failed in itself. 

You may fail on some opportunities, or ideas, but that is okay, because you will learn from those mistakes.

Those mistakes will in turn allow you to learn, and adapt, and so when you build on a new idea you will know what works and does not work, thus allowing you a bigger chance of success.

To try or not to try?

Life will pass you by,

Those opportunities that you once saw, will be gone, and you will look back at your life and say something like, “Wow, I wish I would have done that.”

AND on top of it the more you try, then the more opportunities you will see. 

These opportunities will open up in your life subtly because you will be actively using your mind to find new ideas and ways of doing things.

Stop being fearful of what could happen, and start taking action for what you want.

Because life will not hand you your dream and say “here’s your dream, manifest it.”

If you want your dreams, if you want to achieve your goals, then you have to take action and chase them now!

If you still think about your dreams, think about your goals just take the first steps to achieving them!

Why It Is Necessary To Take Action

Now I talked about the importance of taking action…but there is a difference between understanding the importance and the necessity of taking action.

No longer are the days of staying in that “safe, secure job,” or “doing the same thing as others,” viable.

In order to see success, you must take chances, take risks, and step out of your comfort zones.

You cannot wait any longer for things to happen for you, because nobody is going to do it for you.

You have to take the bull by the horns.

It is necessary that you start taking action now and taking control of your life.

It is necessary that you start trying new opportunities in your life.

It is necessary that you take those first steps to your dreams and goals.

It is necessary that you knock your fears out of the way.

It is necessary that you start relying on yourself, and attaching yourself to winners if you want to see success.

It is necessary that you START NOW!

So what are you waiting for?!?

The time is now, it is necessary that you try things, that you challenge yourself, because life will reward those who are willing to hustle and grind for the things that they want.

I hope you all enjoyed this post,

and cheers to many more!

Always remember that you are awesome, and that you are capable of anything that you put your mind too!
