Importance of Taking Action

“Most of us just wait for good things to happen.

That’s of no use. You have got to make things happen.”

 A story of 1000 Rupee Note:

 Once there was a session by popular motivational speaker. In between the speaker whipped out his wallet and pulled out a 1000 rupee note. Holding it he asked, Who wants this 1000 rupee note?”

 Many hands went up. A slow chorus began to build as people shouted, Me! Me! Every one began to wonder who the lucky one would be to whom the speaker would choose to give away money.

 Even as the shouts of “I want it” grew louder, one of the young women started running down aisle. She ran to the stage, went up to the speaker and grabbed he note.” Well done lady” said the speaker. Most of us just wait for good things to happen. That’s of no use. You have got to make things happen.

Our lives are like that. We all see opportunities around us. We all want the good things. But the problem is we don’t take action. We all want the 1000-rupee note on offer. But we don’t make the move. We look at them and wonder who the lucky one will be—instead of making our own luck. To be fair, some of us do think of running on to stage and grabbing the 1000 rupee note. But we quickly hold ourselves back, because we sorry about what other people might think…

Every day God sends us many windows of opportunities. It is we that we do not either realize it or do not act upon it.
