Success and Inaction Both Come With a Price
“We must all suffer from one of two pains; the pain of
discipline or the pain of regret. The difference
is discipline weights ounces while
regret weights tons.”
Jim Rohn 1930 - 2009, American Entrepreneur,
Self-Author and Motivational Speaker
As I see it. . . . . . . .
Success and inaction both come with a price.
Inaction is making the decision to procrastinate . . . . the price of procrastination is paid over a life time.
Procrastination is making a choice . . . . the choice that is made is the choice of inaction which is to take the action is choosing not to act. The price of inaction is enormous and is carried forward in the form of pain in living a life of regret for the things that we did not do and in the lost opportunities.
Taking action to succeed . . . . takes self-confidence in your decision making and in your abilities. You also have to have the mental discipline to take calculated risks . . . . and to make choices.
In taking action some of your choice will create breakthrough opportunities in your life. While others may have very little impact on your success journey, and there will be those that you would like to forget.
Failing to take action subordinates the action to someone else to make the decision for you. You will lose the ability to make your own choices and to choose your actions.
When it’s time to take action . . . . you have to step up . . . . and take the best actions possible in the conditions that we find yourself in.
The pain of regret for your inaction is carried forward . . . . and can become emotionally draining.
The discipline of making choices and taking action has a price. But there is peace of mind that you’re in control of your choices . . . . your actions . . . . and your future.
Success and inaction both come with a price . . . . you pay for your success in advance. You paid for your inaction over a life time.
