Welcome to The Motivational and Inspirational Corner Newsletter. Each month we bring you our newsletter loaded with motivational and inspirational quotes and commentary centered around a motivational topic that's sure to energize your internal motivation. This month we're going to talk a little about the importance of infusing motion, motion and a lot more motion into your daily routine. Effective, efficient, productive motion is the key to the attainment of all of your hopes and dreams.
"It is always your next move."
--Action quote by Napoleon Hill -
There's an old adage that says most people quit looking for work the moment they land a job. In fact, a lot of underachieving people seem to uncover a myriad of innovative ways to avoid work after they have a job. Work, at least to their way of lazy way of thinking, is something to avoid like the plague. Doing the bare minimum and heading for the house at quitting time is all they have on their minds. They set the bar for achievement really low, then crawl under it to boot. Is this any way for a winner to think, let alone act? I think not.
"Opportunity is missed by most folks because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."
-- Motivational motion quote by Thomas A. Edison --
Most of us miss far more opportunity than we realize, simply because we do not recognize opportunity when it presents itself. We are so busy, either avoiding work or working inefficiently, that we often fail to open our eyes to the abundance of opportunity that exists in America.
"Thought is the blossom; language the bud; action the fruit behind it."
-- Action quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson --
I used to work with an individual who was always busy as a bee. He was busy over here and busy over there. As a matter of fact, he seemed busy all of the time and everywhere. If you didn't know any better, you would have thought he was setting the world on fire with all of his seemingly frenetic activity. But at the end of each day, he rarely had accomplished much of anything throughout the whole day. How was this possible? Although he was busy - he was not very productive. Being busy should never be confused with working in an efficient, productive manner.
"If there's a way to do it better ... find it."
-- Action quote by Thomas A. Edison --
While motion, motion and a lot more motion will without a doubt create a good deal of commotion, we need to make sure we work in an effective manner as well. We not only want to be busy, but even more importantly want to be productive. But action is still the key to success and achievement.
Will we make mistakes when we take action? Sure we will. Will we get knocked down from time to time when we're out there giving it our best shot every day? There's no doubt about it. But as long as we keep working to find a better way, a smarter way and a faster way to do it - we will find it.
"Ideas without action are worthless."
-- Action quote by Harvey Mackay --
Many believe that motivation precedes action, but in reality the reverse is probably even more accurate. When you take action on an idea and get positive results, you become more motivated to make even better things happen in your life. Theodore Roosevelt reminded us to get busy making good things happen when he said, "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." Ideas are funny little things, aren't they? You see, they don't work until we do.
"Action may not always bring happiness, but there's no happiness without action."
-- Action quote by Benjamin Disraeli --
All the so-called secrets of success will not work, unless you're more than willing to carry your fair share of the load. Benjamin Franklin once said, "Nothing preaches better than the act." Sounds like we need to get busy, doesn't it? And not just busy, but productive as well.
So how about it? Are you ready to demand the best from yourself so that you can begin getting the best out of life? Sure you are, in fact you were born ready. The only thing standing between you and the life you long to live is ... action.
"If you keep thinking about what you want to do or what you hope will happen; you won't do it and it won't happen."
-- Motivational action quote by Joe DiMaggio --
Motivation does indeed begin and end in motion - and motion begins and ends with you. When you get in the habit of doing what you need to do, when you need to do it -- you'll soon have everything you have ever dreamed of having.
"If you rest, you rust."
-- Action quote by Helen Hayes --
"Do it now. Then It's done."
"Do it! Move it! Make it happen! No one ever sat their way to success."
-- Action quotes by unknown authors --
