33. Take Action!

In the previous post we discussed making a clear goal and making it very specific. So now you know where your target is. But in order to hit it, you have to…

Take Action

Having a specific goal is all well and good, but it’s not enough. In order to achieve your goals, or get what you want, you have to take action toward their achievement. Massive action! If you want something, go after it! Don’t paddle around. Go for it with a vengeance!

This reminds me of a page in a Dr Seuss book "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"

headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.

The Waiting Place…for people just waiting.

Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.

Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.

Everyone is just waiting.

No! That’s not for you!

If you cant take it from Dr Seuss, take it from Melissa Jenna
