One of the greatest attributes of prosperous people is their ability to take action. They are essentially action oriented. They know that none of the secrets of prosperity will work unless they put them to work.
No wealth creation principle is of any significant value, if not backed up with action. Until you act on any principle, it does not deliver value.
Men and women who achieve great things in life are intensely action oriented. If they have an idea, they take action on it immediately. On the other hand, low achievers and non-achievers are full of good intentions, but they always have an excuse for not taking action today. It is well said that, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”
There is no difference between a man who doesn’t know how to read and one who can read but won’t read.
Lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.
The most powerful way to shape our lives is to get ourselves to take action. It’s in the arena of consistent actions that destinies are attained. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.
“Do not deceive yourselves by just listening to his word; instead, put it into practice. If you listen to the word, but do not put it into practice you are like people who look in a mirror and see themselves as they are. They take a good look at themselves and then go away and at once forget what they look like. But if you look closely into the perfect law that sets people free, and keep on paying attention to it and do not simply listen and then forget it, but put it into practice—you will be blessed by God in what you do.” James 1:22-25
God blesses doers- practitioners, not people who will read great books, attend seminars, listen to powerful tapes and will do nothing with all of the teachings, principles and information. Such people are always in a mess because they won’t put to practice what they have learned.
“You fool! Do you want to be shown that faith without actions is useless?” James 2:20
Someone said “if you can’t fly, then run; and if you can’t run, then walk; and if you can’t walk, then crawl. But by every means keep moving. Often the simple answer to your problem is: go to work.
Nike said “Just do it”
There are two groups of people on the face of the earth- the people who do things and the people who talk about doing things. I want to invite you to belong to the first group. This is the ever winning group- the camp of the achievers and the prosperous.
What separates the prosperous from the poor so many times is that the prosperous simply do it. They take action!
Success is the sum of efforts and actions, repeated day in and day out. Now is the time to act on those plans; make that phone call or send that mail now. Just do something now!
Now let me ask you this question, in what areas do you claim faith but your actions say unbelief.
