Stop Dreaming -- Start Doing

"Behold the turtle.

He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out."

-quote by James B. Conant


"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find how far one can go."

-quote by T. S. Elliot


Dreaming is wonderful, but there comes a time in your life when you have to stop dreaming -- and you have to start doing {taking action} in order to make your dreams into reality.

Taking "action" can be scary, because it may all be new to you.

However, if you never take that first step all you will have is a "dream."

Scroll down this page and read my Jan 2, 2010, Don't Be Afraid Of Making A Mistake blog.

Be encouraged in knowing that every single one of us on this earth has made mistakes.

Those who succeed --pick themselves up and continue their journey.

Believe that you can -- then start.

Until tomorrow, keep walking.

Take Responsibility For Yourself

A simple quote for you to think about.


"Few blame themselves until they have exhausted all other possibilities."



Once you put aside all excuses and you come to the realization you have to take responsibility for your life -- then you will be heading in the right direction [ towards your goals].


Because now you have "empowered" yourself. Many people spend their life "pointing fingers", blaming others or blaming circumstances for their money problems, their health problems, their emotional problems, etc.

The list is endless.

Once you put the burden on yourself -- then you have the opportunity to choose how you will handle the situation.Remember the following:

"You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances,

the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.That is something you have charge of.

You don't have charge of the constellations, but you do have charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes."

-quote by Jim Rohn


When you make a mistake --- learn from it. When someone else makes a mistake that impacts you -- learn from it.

Use the knowledge you acquire to avoid the same situations in the future.

If you don't -- shame on you.

Let me share with you a video which I turn to often, because it demonstrates the very important principal of looking at your life from a new perspective.

Look within - decide what you need to change and head out into the world with a new outlook, confident that you are headed in the right direction.

Being successful is a process. You have to learn to accept responsibility for yourself. You have to learn from your mistakes, and you have to take constructive action to keep moving in the right direction.

There will be setbacks, disappointments and detours --but you get to decide how you will react when you encounter these situations.

Until tomorrow, keep walking

The First Step Is often The Hardest.

Overcoming procrastination & fear and then taking that first step can be an extremely difficult thing to do for many people.

However, it is a crucial step that must be taken if one is to make a meaningful change in your life and reach your goals .

Procrastination & fear can become a vicious cycle and a self-fulfilling prophesy until you take that first step.

Do you agree or disagree? Let's hear what you have to say.


"It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare;

it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.

--quote by Seneca [1st century A.D.]


So the answer to overcoming fear is to take action.

Stop thinking and start doing.


"Life does not consist in thinking,

it consists in acting."

-quote by Woodrow Wilson, 1912


To succeed at any goal you set, you must develop a mindset [way of thinking] that no matter what happens you will overcome any obstacle that comes your way.

So now the choice is yours -- do you choose to continue to immerse yourself in your worries, fears, problems? OR do you choose to take action in finding a way out?

Only YOU can decide

Focus on possibilities ----not on reasons why you can't succeed.

Until tomorrow, keep walking

Never Enough Time

Consider this -- every single human being is allotted a certain number of years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds on this earth.

Once you use that minute or hour ---it is gone for good.

So a question you should consider asking yourself is --Am I making the best use of my time?

If you answer "no" than you must decide the changes you need to make.

Bear in mind that many people go around trying to change "others" in order to attain happiness for themselves.


"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of you doing it.

The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use. "

-quote by Earl Nightingale


If you want to be happy --it is you who has to change.

Perhaps, your way of thinking, perhaps your way of acting, perhaps your way of living

-- happiness starts from within

it is our own interpretation of what is happening around us and our reaction to it.



"There are those of us who are always about to live. We are waiting until things change,

until there is more time, until we are less tired, until we get a promotion, until we settle down -- until, until, until.

It always seems as if there is some major event that must occur in our lives before we begin living. "

-quote by George Sheeha


"If you wait to do everything until you're sure it's right, you'll probably never do much of anything."

-quote by Win Borden


As you can see -- it is not a question of not having enough time to accomplish your goals -- but rather a question of how you choose to use your time.

Do you agree or disagree? Let's hear what you have to say.

Until tomorrow, keep walking
