Poet: Julie Hebert, (c) 2011
Of all the time,
I sit here thinking,
I often wonder,
What's out there waiting.
Is my time spent,
Too much thinking?
Maybe I should,
Stop thinking and doing.
It's time for me,
To make my dreams happen.
I've done enough thinking,
It's time to take action.
So here I go to make,
My dreams into goals.
I can't wait to see,
Where my life will now lead.
While this is a short poem, the verses reflect much wisdom. We all
need to think and plan, but the issue many times is when we don't take
action. Many people are afraid to take a risk, are afraid of failure. But
in life if we don't take a risk we will never move beyond where we are today.
So in summary, don't just think about it, do it!
Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
Passion kept one fully in the present, so that time became a series of mutually exclusive nows.
Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot.
D. H. Lawrence
You never will be the person you can be if pressure, tension and discipline are taken out of your life.
James G. Bilkey
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you've got to have is faith and discipline when you're not yet a winner.
