NOW is the time to succeed
Success does not result from luck or random chance. Success doesn’t just ”happen” to the fortunate few. Instead, achievers make their own opportunities. They possess a “Do-lt-Now” attitude that motivates them to take the actions required to bridge the gap between their dreams and reality and achieve success.
The Greek philosopher Plato said, “If people would move the world, they must first move themselves.” This statement offers one of the enduring truths of all time:
To accomplish personally meaningful and productive results, translate all of your ideas, your plans, and your decisions into immediate action.
The greatest handicap any person can possess is the insidious habit of procrastination. Procrastination is responsible for missed opportunities, low productivity, and general dissatisfaction with life. The most brilliant idea, the most important decision, or the greatest promotion you will ever have will happen only when you take action and make it happen to achieve success.
Activity is not enough, activity is not achievement. Your activity must be targeted and focused on your end goals.
A “Do-It-Now” attitude and self-generated urgency are universally available, and are the keys to achieve success and personal and professional happiness. Anyone can become so motivated that you reach and surpass important life goals. The intensity of desire you develop depends on you; others cannot supply it for you.
You are the only one responsible for your success.
- Take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way.
- Exercise initiative.
- Set a goal, develop a written plan with deadlines
- Determine the appropriate time for taking the right action, and then take action with unswerving singleness of purpose.
- Keep your mind focused on the rewards – not the pain – of doing your best.
Adopt a “Do-lt-Now” attitude today, because now is the time to succeed!
