It's the last day of the first month in the year 2012. What have you started or finished? Perhaps you're in the middle of an initiative or are someone that's still thinking about it. Well I will tell you about me. As I stood on my quiet selling floor today I looked up Og Mandino, the late author of 'The Greatest Salesman in the World.' Though I never read this book I knew of its acclaim and inspiration. I found a website devoted to his legacy, and 'supporting and deepening the journey of personal growth and self improvement' as written at www.ogmandino.com. Once one clicks the link to Og for the 21st Century (since the original work was done in 1968) the reader will see a quote to the right. It reads: "My dreams are worthless, my plans are dust, my goals are impossible. All are of no value unless they are followed by action. I will act Now!'- Og Mandino. I was inspired to make something happen for my life after reading that quote. Though the beginning may put one in awe the end will set em free! Like ethyl alcohol on a fresh cut, it hurts; but the affected area won't get germs due to the action of pouring the aid to prevent infection. Words are powerful and so are we when we take action. Merriam Webster defines action as a manner or method of performing. An act of will. A thing done: Deed. The accomplishment of a thing usually over a period of time instages, or with the possibility of repitition. The plural refers to behavior or conduct. So I figured my action towards my dreams, plans and goals must now be my purpose. I must work at it continuosly over time. Be the star of my own performance, and one day someone else will recognize my talent and seek my services. For if we don't celebrate ourselves sometime and do what is necessary for us to get to the next level, Why? World, would anyone else... 1...2...3 Action! Be Blessed in 2012 and beyond! Paz.
