Chapter Two The Universe Rewards Action 10

Chapter One

Do it now

The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today.”

Nolan Bushnell

What separates successful people from average people-more than anything else-is action. Successful people are highly action–oriented. To become your dream you’ve got to have the will, the audacity, the drive, the guts, the determination and the desire to do something about it anyhow, anyways, now! You just move! It doesn’t matter if it’s the right time or not; there’s never a right time to do anything worthwhile. If it’s your purpose, if it’s what you want, and if it’s good for the world, then do it now. Whether the resources you require are available or not, DO IT NOW!

“The secret of getting ahead is just getting started”

Mark Twain

 

…there’s never a right time to do anything worthwhile

Start Now

Anything worth doing at all is worth doing badly the first time. No one is saying you have to learn by trial and error but you have to start now. This is the way the biggest dreams in history were accomplished. And the fastest way to succeed in life is to do what successful people do.

Just follow their lead.If you do it now, you may succeed or you may fail – neither is bad. But if you don’t act now, you will not succeed now and you will not fail now – neither is good. So it’s up to you to “play it safe” or “do it”. Folks who succeed don’t play it safe though, no they don’t! They lose themselves in pursuit of purpose, passion and vision. And they find themselves successful!

You may never know what results come out of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result”

Mahatma Gandhi

People who succeed take a lot of risks and they fail a lot! I’ve failed a lot and that’s largely responsible for the level of success have created. You just have to stick your

Folks who succeed don’t play it safe… They lose themselves in pursuit of purpose, passion and vision. And they find themselves successful!

neck out, step out of your closet, leave your comfort zone and get your hands dirty! Believe me when I say: without failure, there is no success!

I have missed more than 9, 000 shots in any career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times have been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over again in my life.And that is why I succeed”

Michael Jordan

Start To Start

Your action attracts the resources you need to succeed. Once you take action, the resources you require to accomplish your goal will locate you; as a natural law they have to. Your success or failure will then depend on other factors. Yeah! That’s the way it works. The reason you’ve not got that money you need is because you’ve not started – you’ve not done anything to tell the universe you’re serious. The truth is you don’t need anything to start, you just need to start to start! Nothing happens until you act.

A []

The Truth is you don’t need anything to start, you just need to start to start! ll you require, all you will ever be, all the possessions you will own in your lifetime are already inside you. Yes, inside you!
p<>{color:#000;}.

So what are you waiting for? Get started now.Don’t be a talker, be a doer. Those who can; do, win, lose, succeed, and fail. Those who can’t; talk, wait, criticize, judge, condemn, watch, teach and they remain the same – safe in their comfort zone. Who would you rather be? The one who can, or the one who can’t?

“Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone”

Robert Allen

Choose Action

Life itself is a choice – you can choose to live or you can choose to die. In the same vein, you can choose to be action oriented–never waiting for the green light before you proceed on anything in life-or you can choose to be a very careful person–always waiting for the right signals, resources, policies etc. Let me tell you something: there will always be something to wait for! What you have in your hands is more than enough to do what you want to do.

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Being willing is not enough, we must do”

Leonardo Davinci

If you forget everything in this book, please don’t forget this: in the end, we’ll always wish we did more, we’ll wish we tried harder, we’ll wish we had more fun, we’ll wish we took more risks; maybe we would have been more fulfilled, more successful, happier, more respected, more revered.

Let me tell you something, there will always be something to wait for!

What does this mean? It means no matter how much action you take, at the end of your life, you’ll still wish you took more! Listen to old and dying people to confirm this truth. You’ve got nothing to lose, take action! Move on up!

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover”

Mark Twain

Chapter Two

 

THE UNIVERSE REWARDS ACTION

“One must from time to time attempt things that are beyond one’s capacity”

Auguste Renoir

 

“Our lives improve only when we take chances”

Walter Anderson

Success happens when you follow the path that leads to success. Success happens when you consistently apply the principles of success. Success happens, when you make yourself available to opportunities and you are willing to do what it takes to keep going – without a promise of success! It can never happen while you sit on the sidelines deliberating, reflecting, contemplating, “watching others do it and learning from their mistakes” and believe this or not success can never happen while you are planning! When you act, you begin creating momentum – that unseen energy force that brings more Opportunities and resources, just what you need into your life at seemingly just the right time for you to benefit the most from them.

 

Success can never happen while you are planning

 

 

Fire!

“Fortunate are those who take the first step”

Paulo Coelho

Most people are familiar with the phrase “Ready, aim fire!” The problem is that a lot of people spend their whole life aiming and never firing. They are always getting ready, they want to pray perfection. I launched my first book amid trials and problems. The book went on to be a best seller in Nigeria! And I‘ve written several books after that. Even when there are clear signals that a project or venture will fail, I still go ahead to do it and in most cases, such projects fail! But I make progress-always!

 

Dear Friend, the quickest way to hit a target is to fire, see where the bullet landed, and then adjust your aim accordingly. Fire again. See where it is now. Adjust your aim again. Fire again. Keep readjusting and keep firing. Soon you are hitting the target. The same is true for anything in life. Just do it – now!

“Big shots are only little shots that keep shooting”

Christopher Morley

HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT IT?

Forget all the crap about being “emotionally ready” psychologically ready” Financially ready” “Physically ready” etc. if you want something, go get it! The big word is “WANT”. Do you want it? How much do you want it? You must understand that progress always involve risk, there’s no such thing as something for nothing. Your heart must pound, Yes! I have low tolerance for excessive planning of anything in my life and I don’t like talking about my plans. Do you know why? Because I’m always willing to start without necessarily seeing the entire pathway from the beginning. I’m always willing to “do it now and see what happens”.

Success comes from good judgment. Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment”

seen on a billboard

You don’t even need a clear dream. Do you read me? Just start, then keep taking what feels like logical steps, and the journey will ultimately take you to where you want to go or a better place.

If you’re not sure of success, that’s okay, it only means you need to start so you can grow in confidence.

You must understand that progress always involve risks, there’s no such thing as something for nothing. Your heart must pound, Yes!

I’m antsy to get going. I just want to get started – I want to do it now. I’ve got way too much energy to wait for the “Right time” That’s how I’ve done everything in my life including this book. That’s what successful people do.

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit

Conrad Hilton

 

PUT YOUR PLAN TO WORK

I’m not saying you shouldn’t plan and be sure it will work, planning has its place, but it must be put in perspective. What is important is to just get started. Action is the ultimate. For example a lot of people believe the first thing to do when you want to start a business is to write a business plan. Truth is while you are busy writing your business plan, others are busy working that particular business without a written business plan anywhere! Which is more likely to succeed?

Let me ask you another question: how many great businesses of today started with a written business plan? For you to write a business plan that works, you must have implemented a great part of such business. You must have done the business, at whatever level – hawking, itinerant, small scale etc. Experience has shown us that ideas with great business plans never make it to the marketplace! A lot of people don’t understand this thing. You can only fail forward, you can’t fail backwards!

First you jump off the cliff and you build your wings on the way down”

While you are busy writing your business plan, others are busy working that particular business without a written business plan anywhere! Which is more likely to succeed? ay Bradbury

PLAN TO FAIL!

They say “if you fail to plan, you have planned to fail”. I say if you plan well too, there’s no guaranty that you won’t fail! Infact a good plan should include what to do when you fail.In other words,you plan for your failure! Get into the game. Get on the field. Stop talking! Talk is cheap. Once you get into action, you will be getting feedback that will enable you correct your mistakes and push you forward. You will attract the resources you require at that level and your vision will become clearer and bigger! Once you’re in action-motion; you will learn at a much more rapid rate. Before you know it, you will become a master in that field.

 

“What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing”

Aristotle

TAKE A CHANCE

Dear Friend, it doesn’t matter what you know, the number of books you have read, the number of seminars you have attended, the courses you have taken; it doesn’t, matter what you can do! No! The only thing that does matter is what you do-now! The best way to learn anything is to do it.

“If you want to achieve a high goal, you are going to take some chances”

Alberto Salazar

Few years ago, I traveled from Abeokuta to Abuja to meet a prospect who wanted to “see” my product firsthand before making up his mind about a purchase. He didn’t assure me he would buy he just wanted a live demonstration. I left Abeokuta with just Seven Thousand Naira. This meant only one thing: I must make this sale else I’ll be stranded in Abuja. I made the sale! I left Abuja with One Hundred and Sixty-Five Thousand Naira! And this man referred me to his business associates in Minna and Lagos three weeks later!

I am looking for a lot of men who have an infinite capacity to not know what can’t be done”

Henry Ford

When it’s all said and done, action is the only way to success. You’ve got to get up and try and try.Don’t stop trying.
