"Fortune favors the bold."

Normally there's only one quality separating those who are successful in achieving meaningful goals and those who aren't: a bias towards action. You're thinking about doing it; they're doing it. Or trying it.

"Develop a bias towards action!"

Makes no difference between the two because once you get going, it's easier to correct your course. They always said it's easier to steer a moving vehicle, right? Either way, the longer you contemplate, the less likely you are to EVER achieve what's really on your heart to do. The calculations of what can go wrong will keep mounting in your mind.

The only way to fix this is to commit to acting and ACT!  Yesterday I posted about "fortune" a few times. By "fortune" I do not mean "luck" since luck is too tied to chance. When I say fortune, I'm speaking of opportunity.

Fortune is a woman, if you neglect her today expect not to regain her. - Unknown

Fortune, being a lady, favors the bold. - Nicolo Machiavelli

You will never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. - Christopher Columbus

There's a common theme in all of these thoughts: The more you act... the more you take chances...the more you go beyond what you're usually comfortable doing... the more you will succeed!

Now get out of my way.  I've got moves to make, too!
