WHY taking action creates success
Act your way into a new way of thinking
It's not always easy to act when we are dealing with a lot of fear. I've heard the saying that procrastination is self-pity in action. When we are making every excuse possible to avoid exercising, working on that report for work, going on that vacation we've always wanted to go on, going to that recovery support meeting, and on and on. When we realize that we are procrastinating about doing the things that will ultimately be good for us, we have a choice in what to do next. We can continue to live in fear and self-pity or we can take positive action to become a victor.
We can decide that we want to change all day long, but real change only occurs when we are taking positive action in the pursuit of our worthy goals. We can think about and even decide that we want to eliminate some weight and maybe even work on getting those six pack abs, but until we actually change to a healthier diet, sleep 8 hours per night, and go to the gym and put in an effective and honest workout, we are only thinking about being in better shape. We need to act our way into a new way of thinking. We need to work out at the gym on a daily basis, make healthier food choices, get sufficient sleep, and stay active by biking, hiking, kayaking, playing a sport, etc.
