A Follow-up

b2ap3_thumbnail_MP900289069In a previous blog post, I compared the power of action to the potential confusion of just experiencing motion.  While pondering what my next topic would be, I ran into a quote by Thomas Jefferson that succinctly illustrates the importance of appropriate action.  So, I want to stick with the topic of action for this post, as well.

You know what it feels like when you’re frozen in inaction for some reason.  The feeling can include anxiety, frustration, overall malaise and even to the point of feeling like a failure.  Failure only persists when action is not present.  Act and you overcome, in other words.

But, as Jefferson observes, taking action can result in an even more important outcome.  He says:  “Do you want to know who you are?  Don’t ask.  Act!  Action will delineate and define you.”

Powerful, don’t you think?  So many of us spend our lives asking ourselves who we are!  The answer lies in a total different approach.  Act and you define you!

What more could you ask for?
