Action is Priceless - #13 of 25 Traits of the Fearless Entrepreneur

In a recent interview on being fearless, I was reminded by Rebecca Happy, the interviewer, of the saying that “the universe rewards action”. 

Many people have written on this success component.  Just try googling that phrase.  

There is a common belief that by taking action, you trigger activities that will take you towards success. 

In the interview with Rebecca a few weeks ago, I shared that my world is driven not by a faceless universe but by a personal, indescribable God that cares about every facet of my life and who placed every star in the sky and knows them by name (thank you Chris Tomlin for that great description).  She surprised me by telling me that a large number of the people she interviewed for this project on success had the same perspective.

That belief and the faith that comes from it lets me know that I was given everything I need to succeed (the magic shoes) and that every step I take gets me closer to the plan for my life.  

That means that every time I drive my 16 year old to her golf lesson, the dream of the NCAA Division 2 golf scholarship for her is one step closer.  

As I write a $10k for product development, I can see the client agreements that I will be able to close from having that new functionality.

And as I go for a 3 mile walk, I am that much closer to the healthy body that I desire.

We all know that talk is cheap. Action is priceless.  One other element that deserves mention is that you can't confuse motion for action.  And you can't think that a dream will happen without a plan.
