Inspirational Quotes on Action


By Anubhav Srivastava ( Register for his Workshop – Build Super Confidence For Super Success!)

“We spend our lives looking for that one great idea to change our lives when it is the one great implementation that really matters.”

“If there is one thing history teaches us about success, it is that all “unrealistic” things are achievable through realistic steps.”

“Implementing the lessons you learn in one book has greater value than reading a thousand books and doing nothing.”

“Nobody cares what you know, it is what you do with what you know that matters.”

“Your reputation is built on the actions you have committed, not the actions you say you will commit.”

“Do not revel in past glory, what you did before will not dictate your future, it is what you do now that matters.”

“Possessing great talent is inconsequential if you just let the talent sit around and rot instead of applying it. “

“It does not matter if the world is not convinced about your dream, what matters is if you are. If you have the courage to believe in your dream when no one else does, eventually the world shall believe in it as well. However, unless you supplement the belief with relentless action and a never say day attitude, nothing is going to happen.”

“There will never be a perfect time to start anything but now is almost always the right time.”

“Thoughts do become things. But it’s a fallacy to believe that thinking alone is enough. For it is not the thoughts themselves that create our life, it is the action inspired by those thoughts that does so.”

“An idea cannot change your life. Only the guts to implement that idea can.”

“Inspiration without action is pointless. Action without inspiration is senseless. Inspired action is what turns dreams into reality.”

“There are four kinds of people in the world. The ones that talk nothing and do nothing. The ones that talk big but do nothing. Then there are the ones who are too afraid to talk but quietly pursue their dream. Finally, there are those who have the courage to proclaim their dream, are ridiculed constantly and yet accomplish everything they said they would, as the world watches in amazement. If you talk big, back it up with bigger action.”

“You are responsible for your actions, but not always the result of that action. You have the power to make attempts to influence your fate but not always in control of what eventually happens. If you made mistakes on your part, learn from them, but stop blaming yourself for the mistakes you never made. Work hard and work smart, but don’t beat yourself up if you do not get the results despite your best efforts. Move on to something else. As long as you know your heart that you did absolutely everything under your control you are someone worthy of admiration.”

“We have always been taught that one should be modest. Well, modesty is good, but too much modesty isn’t. Do not be afraid to talk about your achievements. If you don’t talk about your talent and accomplishments, nobody else is going to do it for you. Just remember, the talk has to be backed up with action as well. Talk without action and people will eventually stop taking you seriously. Act without talk and you will die unknown. Talking backed up with greater action shall earn you what you deserve”.
