Those who make a difference — those who improve their lives, their communities and their world, are doers. People of action. Dreams are fantastic, but we need to live our dreams if we want to make them real… if we want to make a difference. This requires intelligent activity.
Chanting to the universe… Cosmic Ordering. These act as a narcotic, to ease the pain of being less than you can be. They distract their advocates from the very real fact that the clock is ticking. They provide an alibi for those scared of doing… after all, it’s not THEIR fault if the universe isn’t listening to them, they say.
Here’s what we know works, from every great artist who has ever lived: Intelligent action is required.
The need for action
“Action expresses priorities.” – Mahatma Gandhi
“What one does is what counts. Not what one had the intention of doing.” – Pablo Picasso
“Do the thing and you will have the power.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Well done is better than well said.” – Benjamin Franklin
“Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, sauté it, whatever. MAKE.” – Joss Whedon
“You are what you do.” – C.G Jung
“Imagination means nothing without doing.” – Charlie Chaplin
“A thousand words leave not the same deep impression as does a single deed.” – Henrik Ibsen
“The more often he feels without acting, the less he will be able ever to act, and, in the long run, the less he will be able to feel.” – C. S. Lewis
“Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.” – Benjamin Disraeli.
If you want to make a real difference, you need to get real and start LIVING your dreams.
