Destiny Is Manifested Only Through Action

Action cures fear. It cures everything. If you want to move ahead, if you want to achieve greatness, you must make action your best friend. Because there is nothing you cannot achieve when you take action.

It is not okay to dream. It is not okay to talk. It is not okay to plan. If you want your dream to come to pass, you must take action. Talk will not do it for you. Planning is good, but you need to take action to put your plan to work.

Take action. Don’t live a life of inaction. Inaction is a disease. If you want to cure your inaction, take action. There is power in action. In the words of Suzy Kassem, “Destiny is manifested only through action. You cannot be the captain of your own destiny, only the sailor, because we cannot control external influences that may alter the stability or direction of our ships. Once you understand this basic principle, you won’t be so hard on yourself when things don’t go your way. If man could could write his own fate, he would have designed his journey to be without obstacles.” From now on, you shouldn’t worry yourself about what you cannot control. You can’t control what is happening out there, but you can control yourself.

What To Do When You Don’t Know How To Move Past Where You Are

Don’t stuck yourself. Don’t let the fear of the unknown stop you from living your life. You are stronger than your fears. Don’t focus on your fears. All you need to do is to focus on why you are here on earth. If you know why you are here, if you know your purpose in life, if you know what you want to achieve in your own life, nothing can stop you from achieving it.

“If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”- Napoleon Hill

Success requires courage, faith, hope, work, and action. If you know what you want, then take action to unstuck yourself. It is good to dream. It is okay to write your dreams on paper. It is okay to talk about your dreams. But nothing will happen unless you take the right action. It is only action that can change your life. It is only action that can unstuck you from your comfort zone. Action matters. It is only action that can get you to where you want to be. Without action, a dream is just another dream on paper.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”- Neale Donald Walsh

But you can change things. You can change your life. You may have tried before and it didn’t work. That was in your past. But you are no longer living in your past. You are living in the present, in the moment, in the now. Everything is happening right now, right where you are. Don’t miss it. Don’t wait for the right time to take action. If you know what you want to do, just do it. And the best way to unstuck yourself is to do what you know how to do. Do what you know, forget about what you don’t know. Don’t overthink things.

“If you want to be free, you must face your fears. If you want to be free, you must believe in yourself.”

Overthinking makes things worse, not better. Make things simple, but not simpler. And the right time to do it is now. Napoleon Hill said, “Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.” Do it now! Don’t let fear stop you from doing what is right for you. Remember that fear is subdued by action. If you take action, your fears will disappear. But if you don’t, they will hang around your neck forever. They will never leave. When you face your fears, you kill them. When you face your problems, they will lose their hold upon your life. If you want to be free, you must face your fears.
