An individual’s greatest power is that they have the ability to analyze a situation, determine if it is beneficial to them and then taking action to enhance the current situation or to move in a new direction. Taking action is one of the necessary factors in any success story. Most often the difference between those who are successful and those who are not is the action that they take each day to move toward their goals. Want to write a book? Start writing. Want to build a car? Start building. Want to have love in your life? Start loving others. Making the conscious choice to take action is the most empowering thing that you can do. Here are five benefits that taking action will bring into your life.
Taking Action Eliminates Fear
Human beings are always dreaming. What we can accomplish, who we want to be and the biggest thing stopping us is fear. Fear of failure, if we don’t find success then what? I don’t want to look foolish. Failure is the first step to achieving anything. Reevaluate, re-plan and try again, fearlessly through action. Fear of success, if you do become successful in your dream, then what? Action eliminates fear and will allow you to become what you dream of. Without action, nothing will ever happen. Taking action will eliminate fear, in fact, it is the only thing that can.
You Know Where You Stand by Taking Action
Until you test an idea or theory with action, you never know if it will work or not. So you can sit there with great dreams and plans, thinking how much money you will make or how famous you will be when this great “thing” is done. Take action and see if that book will sell, or that invention will make millions or that business can’t fail. Action will allow you to evaluate where you are and what work your dreams need in order to be great. Without action, the greatest ideas are just going to be castles in the air.
If you want to have a relationship with a particular person, if you never take the action to ask them out, you will never know what might happen. Action will display a measuring stick if the relationship is not going to happen you can stop wasting your time and move on to something more productive. Taking specific action toward your goal will reveal the reality of the situation and the distance still required to travel.
