Lights, Camera, Take Action


Have you ever had a great business idea?

Did you focus & plan out the business in your mind and then write it down on paper?

Of course you did "Take Action"? Right?

Well most of us have great ideas or talents that we can share with the rest of the world but never do. WHY???

Think about how many Jobs you could have created and how many people you could have helped with your idea or business. Do you see where I'm going with this?

So what happened? Why didn't you make it happen? There are many reasons most of us don't Take Action on our ideas but Fear is one of the biggest reasons why.

Why are you afraid? Well fear is the result of an incorrect thought. We are fearful of failure and of the unknown. I know because I was guilty of that too!

What I really "Failed" at was realizing that failure is a gift that brings knowledge. If you fail, you learn and grow but only if you accept it as the gift that it is. If you're like me you've failed and given up a time or two. BUT the simple TRUTH is that when "Failure" happens you have to see the lesson to be learned.

My Friend when this happens you will always succeed! Failure is your friend remember that!!! :-D

Besides, it's not even TRUE failure. TRUE failure happens when you stop trying.

Fear of the Unknown is the bane of many people's existence.

You know how it goes - "What if..."

And YES, I was also afraid of the Unknown. Remember we're programmed from a young age to Fear and to fear the Unknown. The problem is that Fear breeds negativity and that in turn can ruin anything if we let it. But, that's a subject for another day.

Those "What Ifs" usually never happen and if they do then you need to take the time to examine them for your lesson. Every bad thing has good in it, so it's up to you my friend to decide which side you'll look at.

The Unknown has immense opportunities and potential for growth both spiritually and financially. The past is known and the unknown lies in the future. If your past has not gotten you to your dream or goal, then the unknown is the place to be. Don't you think so?

Take Action and Do something worthy!

Here's a couple quotes for you to think about:

"Don't fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have." --Louis E. Boone

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face...You must do the thing you think you cannot do." --Eleanor Roosevelt, 1884-1962, Social Activist and Former First Lady
