Ideas + Actions = Success
This week we’re talking about success …
After pondering the topic I had this realization, ideas are simply thoughts that when acted upon, materialize in the physical world and push us closer to success.
The Empire State Building was just an idea that formed in someone’s mind. It took action and a whole lot of collaboration to bring it into existence and become the historical icon that it is today.
Think about it … how many times you have a brilliant idea THAT YOU NEVER TAKE ACTION ON?
Three months later, you see your idea materialized in someone else’s business, family, career, relationship, and you say to yourself, “That was my idea or Why didn’t I do that?”
It is the actions you take (or don’t) that bring your ideas into existence. Sometimes, not taking action is the only thing holding you back from accomplishing the level of success you desire.
If Nicolas Appert never took action on his idea to can food in 1809, Ezra J. Warner might never had the idea to invent the can opener in 1858. Both of these inventions were simply ideas that were acted upon.
So, the next time you have an amazing idea, act and act fast. It is far better to act upon a slightly imperfect idea, than to NEVER act upon what you believe is a perfect idea.
So what amazing ideas have been rolling around in your mind lately? And you’re waiting for what?
