Act

“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.” – Thomas Jefferson

We hold back, waiting for others to make the first move. Bobbing and weaving, avoiding the “punch” of what others may think. Reacting instead of acting.

In a “it’s not my job” world, act. Make it your job. We are not here to get by with the least possible effort, to let others reactions, actions or inactions define us. Our life unfolds through our actions, not others.

Stop idling, waiting, reacting. Regardless of what others think, move and proactively live the life you were made for. Risk giving your very best, not keeping score. Counting only the blessings you have and how you can give them away. Act.

  1. It’s hard isn’t it, to not make the world ‘about us’. It seems everything we do in life is generally for us, actions that benefit us and purposes oriented for us. To do something without ourselves as the center of the purpose is a challenge. To be bold and to break free from those chains that bind us is very difficult, but you are right. To do so will show us the ultimate freedom.
    Thanks for the post,

    How many of you are going to read this and think to yourself, “that is so right,” then do nothing different? If you’re not one of them, comment on this post. ~Peter
