The Key To Success

Success isn't determined by genetics. It's about persistent, consistent action. Action is the key. You can be the most talented person in the world or have the best ideas, yet still if you do not take action you will achieve nothing.




The First Step is the most important step of any daring journey.


Entrepreneurial Action



Carl von Clausewitz quotes

It is even better to act quickly and err than to hesitate until the time of action is past.

Carl von Clausewitz




Balance Action and Reflection

Creating success involves creating and a delicate and ongoing balance between two somewhat opposing forces – reflection of where you are now and action of pushing toward where you need to go. This balance between reflection and action is very similar to the balance of Yin and Yang.

You Will Not Succeed Unless You Act

“I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.” ~ Gilbert K. Chesterton

Most of the problems in life and business stem from one cause: we can't get ourselves to take action. It's not that we don't know what to do. The problem is getting ourselves to follow through and do it.

The Skill of Getting Yourself To Take Action

Create your fate! Many people are unwilling and/or afraid to go after what they want because it would force them to stretch their comfort zones. They convince themselves the action can be postponed or that a time will come when they won't be afraid to go after their goals. But that special event when everything falls into place will never happen. You will always feel out of your comfort zone when it comes to breaking the status quo.

Successful people aren't free of fear and worry, they they are enthusiastic and brave enough to take the first step and keep moving forward in spite of the perceived danger. They know how to motivate themselves and get themselves to take action. If you wish to turn your dream to reality, you must learn how to develop and master the skill of getting motivated to do the things that must be done. Keep telling yourself, "'Today' is the opportunity to build the bridge between yesterday's lesson and tomorrow's achievement. I'm sure to pursue this opportunity!"

Confucius advice

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

Having dreams and passion is not enough. If you wish to achieve something, don't let life just "happen" to you. Set goals and take action.

"The people may be made to follow a path of action, but they may not be made to understand it." ~ Confucius

Don't Quit, Keep Going

The law of inertia says that "a body at rest tends to remain at rest or a body in motion tends to remain in motion."
