Action

As I enter my first year of the A to Z challenge, I am compelled to write the first thing that comes to mind. As the letter for today is "A", my first thought was "April", recognizing the many things that happen in this month. But then I thought of something more motivating to me. The word I came up with is "action". As I think of life and how easy it is to give up and quit reaching for your dreams, I thought to myself, the secret is movement toward your goals. I see many talk about their dreams but few work toward it. . So many good ideas going astray. So much talent going unused. All I can do is shout out to others as well as to my self. ACT! Act on your goals. Act on what needs to be done from day to day. And if life becomes so difficult that you feel you can't make the next few steps, then TAKE ONE STEP for one step is better than none.Visualizing and planning are important but all the knowledge building and planning in the world mean nothing if it is not backed by movement toward the goal.  Act not just for yourself but rather act so that others who see you will be motivated to act toward their own goals. You will be surprised at how far a little movement can go a long way in making a big change for the better!

  1. I like your premise. Action can be as small as taking one step after the next, or as big as emptying a whole room of unnecessary items; it can be emotional, physical or mental. At the end of the day, it is all about being able to say, "I took some action today". It makes me feel good every day to be able to say that.
