“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great”.
One may be equipped with tonnes of theory. You may have the best of skills, the most positive of attitudes and the strongest of beliefs. But if you just do nothing with all these attributes, nothing is going to come out of it. Action is the basis of all success. Every action may not give success but at the same time no success is possible without action.
The following action quotes will shed light on the importance of action in life.
It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
“An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied”.
~ Arnold Glasow
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
“You cannot score a goal when you are sitting on the bench. To do so, you have to dress up and enter the game”.
~ Israelmore Ayivor
“The successful person makes a habit of doing what the failing person doesn’t like to do”.
~ Thomas Alva Edison
“What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say”.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.
~ Lao Tzu
“The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action”.
Remember that action is the vehicle of success.
