The famous quote by Martin Luther King Jnr, “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward”, is a true statement that applies to every stage of life.
Success is often as a result of productive actions that we took. As the days in every year adds up in weeks and months, we daily achieve more, and expand, based on the actions that we took.
Thus, doing what needs to be done to achieve what we need to achieve is all about activating the requisite pillars for ACTION, in relation to the respective goals and targets that we have set for ourselves. It is putting all hands on deck to achieve what you want to achieve.
Success is about making progress in life. It happens through deliberate productive efforts across many fronts, across a diversity of activities, as well as through conscious efforts and actions across a variety of initiatives and endeavours.
Success is tied to the conscious efforts at daily improving and applying innovative and creative strategies to overcome inhibiting and limiting situations. It is about working on our weaknesses or challenges and making conscious efforts to succeed, the limitations notwithstanding.
There are different levels of success and moving to the next desired level is about doing what needs to be done, when it is needed to be done.
As Martin Luther King Jnr note: “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
In all things, what needs to be done is to make keep moving forward!
According to Peter Marshall, “Small deeds done, are better than great deeds planned.” Yes, though you may have BIG ideas, it is the small steps of actions (what you do) that matters. The BIG idea, without a corresponding action (no matter how little), to bring it to reality is just a mere wish!
Taking action matters. As G.K. Nielson noted, “Successful people are not gifted; they just work hard, then succeed on purpose.”
….. In all things, what needs to be done is to make keep moving forward!
Greg Reid: “A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come true.”
Let’s keep doing. Let’s keep pushing. Let’s make progress.
