Actions, Not Words, Move Mountains!


Actions, not words, move mountains!

I wanted to get this message out there today, because it really spoke to me this morning. We can all sit around every day, wishing, dreaming, hoping and praying that our particular mountain is going to move for us. However, unless we get up and get started on making that mountain move, more than likely, it’s just going to sit there.

I’m not a science person, but think of a rock, sitting on the ground. Is it going to move by itself? No. It’s going to sit there until something, or someone moves it.

All action begins somewhere. Everything you want, you can have, but not if you sit around and wait for it to come to you. You must do something to get the ball rolling and once rolling, it’s a whole lot easier to keep it that way.

I’m still reading The Magic of Thinking Big and the chapter I’m currently on also talks about the longer you wait, the harder it will be for you to start. Why?

That’s right, that ugly four letter F-word!


The longer you sit around and worry about what might happen, the more your mind comes up with scenarios to keep you from doing what needs to be done.

Afraid to make that phone call? Go ahead and make it and you’ll find out that it really wasn’t all that bad to begin with. The only thing that made it bad was the fear you felt before calling.

Mark Burnett even wrote a book called, “Jump In! Even if you don’t know how to swim!” Why? Because it is the fear that keeps you from achieving your goals. It is the fear of the unknown and what might happen that is keeping you from the life you dream of living.

There is a famous quote that says, “Everything you want is on the other side of fear!” And it’s true!

What defeats fear? ACTION!

Get moving! Take that first step! Get the ball rolling and you will find that action begets action! I think Chalene Johnson is famous for saying, “The more you sit, the more you want to sit. The more you move, the more you want to move!” And it’s true!

Whether you are talking about working out, writing a novel, building a business or anything it is you want to accomplish, the secret to getting it done is to do it!

Brian Tracy is famous for saying, “What one thing, if you did it today, would help you reach your goals?”

Whatever it is, get up, pray about it. Ask God to help you, then go out and do it!
