I Will Act Now

 

Choose to say: I Will Act Now!

In the story of David and Goliath: David’s father wanted David to take some food to his brothers, and the story says that David set out early the next morning to accomplish this task.

I like this, because it appears to me that David was quick to obey. He didn’t procrastinate. He set out early the very next morning. David had an “I will act now” mindset, and this is a characteristic of highly successful people. This is how winners think.

Later in the story, we read that once David was actually ready to fight Goliath, he ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Once again, we see that David had an “I will act now” mindset. That was his attitude – I will act now. He didn’t procrastinate, and one of the things that I’ve learned is that there are some problems that seem big when you first encounter them, but if you procrastinate, if you put off dealing with them, they only get bigger.

With this in mind, don’t procrastinate. Deal with problems quickly. Don’t allow problems to get bigger. Don’t allow problems to hang over your head.

David ran quickly to meet Goliath, and it’s possible that this didn’t give Goliath time to figure out David’s strategy.

Timing is important, and once you know what you’re supposed to do, don’t delay! If you want to be successful, let “I will act now” become part the way you think. Let it become part of the way that you act.

One of the affirmations that I’ve probably said hundreds, maybe even thousands of times is “I will think and then act in order of importance. I will act now!”

I’ve said this over and over and over because I have a tendency to procrastinate and I’m trying to brainwash myself into being the type of person who thinks and then acts in order of importance.

I’m gonna close this Golden Nugget with a quote by Og Mandino, who basically said, “The present is all that I have. Tomorrow is the day when those who are lazy plan to work. Tomorrow is the day when those who are failures plan to succeed. Tomorrow is the day when those who are evil plan to become good. Tomorrow is the day when those who are weak plan to become strong. I am not lazy, I am not a failure, I am not evil, and I am not weak, therefore, I will act now.”

Isn’t that good?!

Of course, I expect that you are a person of action, because this is characteristic of winners, and you are a winner, and given enough time, you WILL win! Yes, you ARE a winner!

Hi, this is Don Howe, and the topic for this Golden Nugget is “I Will Act Now”, and, once again, I’m gonna start out by sharing an example from the story of David and Goliath.

David’s father wanted David to take some food to his brothers, and the story says that David set out early the next morning to accomplish this task.

I like this, because it appears to me that David was quick to obey. He didn’t procrastinate. He set out early the very next morning. David had an “I will act now” mindset, and this is a characteristic of highly successful people. This is how winners think.

Later in the story, we read that once David was actually ready to fight Goliath, he ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Once again, we see that David had an “I will act now” mindset. That was his attitude – I will act now. He didn’t procrastinate, and one of the things that I’ve learned is that there are some problems that seem big when you first encounter them, but if you procrastinate, if you put off dealing with them, they only get bigger.

With this in mind, don’t procrastinate. Deal with problems quickly. Don’t allow problems to get bigger. Don’t allow problems to hang over your head.

David ran quickly to meet Goliath, and it’s possible that this didn’t give Goliath time to figure out David’s strategy.

Timing is important, and once you know what you’re supposed to do, don’t delay! If you want to be successful, let “I will act now” become part the way you think. Let it become part of the way that you act.

One of the affirmations that I’ve probably said hundreds, maybe even thousands of times is “I will think and then act in order of importance. I will act now!”
