We are judged by our ACTIONS not our INTENTIONS! Do you judge your life by your intentions rather than your actions? There is an old saying, 'the road to hell is paved with good intentions'.
In reality many people have the intention to carry out an action but that is as far as it gets.
Good intentions without follow up action are useless.
They are like a cockerels fancy tail feathers, useless in a high wind.
As Genghis Khan himself is reputed to have said, 'it is better to strike a match than curse the darkness' Quite often we actually get paralysed by our own thinking.
Indecision is actually a product of fear.
The way out of the paralysis is to take a spot check inventory.
This can be taken any time of the day when we feel ourselves getting bogged down in our own thinking and become frustrated at our lack of progress.
It is helpful to sit quietly and relax for a short period and reflect on why thinking has replaced the need for action.
Are we expecting too much of ourselves? Is our thinking about the project based on a need for perfection? If you need to move from an intention to an action it is often simpler to break down the project into more manageable proportions.
An old Chinese proverb states, 'the journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step'.
This is how to get all projects under way.
Make a beginning.
The motivation to take action kicks in after we have made a start, no matter how small.
This is the simplest way to get things done.
Take SOME action, no matter how small or apparently insignificant.
All success in life can only come after action is taken.
Taking some action is also a great teacher.
Taking action increases our understanding of what is needed to succeed.
If all we do is think about something, the project will never be completed.
Part of the problem with intentions is that we can fool ourselves into believing that we are in fact doing something about it.
But nothing takes the place of action if we want to succeed.
Even actions that are erroneous are our teacher; they teach us what doesn't work.
Often we think that it is stupid to do things that run the risk of not working out.
But this kind of thinking makes us risk averse and taking risks is necessary to make new things happen.
There is only so much thinking you need to do before action becomes necessary.
If action is delayed or postponed then a successful outcome is delayed or postponed.
Massive action brings massive results.
Especially in online marketing, unless you are a natural creative genius, financial success depends usually on taking massive action towards your goals.
The sooner you accept this principle, the sooner you are on your way to success.
If you examine most successful people you will find that at the heart of their success is determined and focused action.
Nothing else brings the same guarantee of success.
So in the light of your own reality accept in the depth of your being the need to take some action daily on the road to success.
