I Will Act Now

 

"I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person." -Og Mandino

This speaks to me in so many ways. It might be my favorite. I will act now, as well.

I read this before my last workout on Sunday at the qualifiers. Wouldn't have got the time I did if it wasn't for this. I have read this and repeated "I will act now" everyday since.

That is great! My only advise is to take out the word "will" and make it more present tense and state that "I AM acting now." Live in the present and make it real....

Act now, act now, act now. Henceforth, I repeat these words always, as they become me. These words condition me to perform for success. Act now, act now, act now.
K(no)w failures, act now. K(no)w fears, act now. Now is for all.
Tomorrow will be Now. Act Now. K(no)w failures. Success is for All. Never lost. Now. Here. All.
