Need Help to Take Action Now – Channel a Superhero!

 

 

This article is dedicated to my Pushing Lovely crew for all they do to keep me inspired and moving and accomplishing my dreams.

 

 

When you take action now, you realize all the cool adults are doing it and it is a magnificent feeling. You will also learn that some of your take action now heroes, have heroes of their own, and one of those heroes may be you!
 

“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child. I thought as a chld: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” I Corinthians 13:11
 

Once of the greatest pleasures of childhood is the ability to put things off for some unknown “tomorrow.” Anyone who  has ben around children has witnessed masters of the art of postponement. Children do not try to complete school assignments when asked. Instead, they make up excuses. They put off chores until they can be put off no more. I have heard my children try to get out of work because they didn’t have the right pencil, because they had three more days to get it done and because the project was so easy it could be done at recess the day it was due. When you become an adult, it is time to do things differently. When you are an adult, you take action now and do what needs to be done in a timely manner. Often doing things in a timely manner means do it now, not waiting for a mysterious “Someday” to arrive. Take action now means just what it says, you do something now, right now.

 

 

As children, we are told that talk is cheap.  Some people make the mistake of thinking this means words have no value. This is far from the truth. Our words do have value. Our words give us plans, directions, and marching orders. When we are told “our word is our bond,” it means something. It means that when we say a thing we need to make that thing happen. It means we must keep our word. Taking action now is the place where all our talk and pretty words is supposed to end. Talk as much as you please. Talking is a great thing to do for fun, entertainment and business purposes. But, no matter how good the talk is, you must move to take action now if you want to get things done.
