D

―You don‘t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.‖ I believe it is thought normal in today‘s society to just let life happen to us. I also believe that we sometimes damage our well-planned thoughts about success because it is easier to just carry on as usual rather than ‗try‘ with the possibility of failure in mind.

The main reason why most people never get moving is because they have no real idea about what they want. Without a certain result already set in your mind, it is really difficult to get going, and even if you do, your motivation (动力) may soon disappear and you give up before too long. Why not consider what is really important in your life? Write down what excites you, what would truly make you happy and what problems you have. At the end of the week, take a careful look at the notes you have taken. You will soon begin to see a clearer picture of what direction you should be heading.

Knowledge is useless without action. You can read every book on any subject but your life will stay the same if you do not use that knowledge. This may seem clear but the reason why the self-help industry is thriving (繁荣的) is because people read and r ead and read but never use the information provided.

Knowledge is fantastic but it is not life changing until used. I love to read personal development material to keep a positive attitude towards my life, but I also re alize that if I don‘t set goals to achieve, then I will always be a talk the talk person who is great at giving advice but useless at realizing it. If you have no plans of practicing what you say, then it may be best to keep your mouth closed.

Do you want to know who you are? Don‘t ask. Act! Action will explain you. Whatever excuses we have for not living up to our talent, the fact is that time will always move forward. Be whatever you want to be and whatever you can be. Always remember the only limits we have are the ones we create for ourselves. Life is not what we think, it is what we experience when we act upon the thoughts we entertain.
