Stay Awake & Be The Momentum In Your Life

People will always judge you by your actions and not your intentions. As the saying goes, "You may have a heart of gold, but so does a hard-boiled egg." A thousand words will not leave as lasting impression as one deed. So all of us should be turning out obscure intentions into amazing, concrete actions. If you don't do it, it means you are not believing in what you are intending. A lot of us spend our whole time trying to figure out what's right, but then we can't seem to find any time to practice it.

Don't just dream. Be the momentum in your own life!

Remember, knowing what is right to do and then not doing it is just plain wrong. Your memoirs aren't written with the ink of your pens but rather with your gestures. To do nothing is like paving your way to be nothing! Why you not taking any action on the good things that you have planned? Is it because of FEAR? Action subdues fear you know. When we challenge our fears, we master them. When we wrestle our problems, they lose grip on us and when we confront the things that scare us, we open the door to personal say an anonymous. So start doing something about it!

The common conception is that motivation leads to action,
but the reverse is true-action precedes motivation.
~Robert J. McKain~

Are you the kind who are always waiting to be kicked in the ass aka motivated? Don't wait to be motivated: Michael Cadena says, "Take the bull by the horns until you have him screaming for mercy." Doing nothing means you are essentially being lazy. Laziness is a burden and expectation is the idle man's income. Ironically, idleness is very persistent. Idleness will keep on going and going and going....until it is heading nowhere but a place called poverty! There is no idleness without a thousand troubles.

Proverbs says, "Hard work means prosperity; only fools idle away their time." So take heed of Francois Voltraire advice that we should shun idleness for it is a rust that attaches itself to the most brilliant of metals. We need to start doing something! We need to be like a hybrid of a carrier pigeon and a woodpecker: not only carrying the message (intentions) but also knocking hard on the door of accomplishment!

All of us are living in an unfinished world. Why would I say so? that we might be able to share the joys and satisfaction of creation through our actions? Creativity is built into everyone of us; its part of our blueprint.  It is in our DNA. Each of us lives less of the life intended for us when we choose not use the creative powers that we possess. So when we are not harnessing our creativity...we are not living our lives to their fullest!

I am a big fan of dreams. Unfortunately, dreams are the first casualty
in life-people seem to give them up quicker than anything for a 'reality'.
~Kevin Costner~

Hans Selye said it best, "Realistic people with practical aims are rarely as realistic or practical in the long-run of life as the dreamers who pursue their dreams." So be a dreamer everyone. All we need is an idea. We need to be brave enough to live creatively. A man of words and not of deeds is like a flower bed full of weeds. Don't let weeds grow around your dreams. To only dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are. Don't just dream of great accomplishments; stay awake and do them!
