“Blossom by blossom, the Spring begins”
A C Swinburne, 19th Century English Poet
Nothing you want in life ever happened without progress.
The steps we take, are those that take us towards our goals. Though sometimes we might feel those steps aren’t quite going in the right direction, or not happening fast enough, they surely are making some sort of progress.
Taking no action at all is where most people fail. It’s a given that if you don’t take action – you are frozen into doing nothing – then most likely you will make no progress. Even if progress is slow, it is progress and each step is getting you closer.
Why do people take no action?
Well, sometimes, it’s because they think they might fail and that will be painful. Yet, taking no action at all is always going to be successful in that context, for then, failure is guaranteed.
