The Difference Between Dreamers and Achievers Is Action (Day 79)

The past 78 days I showed me a lot, but one thing in particular has stuck out:

The importance of action.

People who read this might think that that’s a trite declaration. But observing the disparity between what people want and what people have tells me that it’s not as easy as it may sound.

The mind/body connection & decision-making have come up over and over again.

I see people who want to lose weight, and in the next breath make plans to go out to the bar and eat a greasy hamburger with three or four beers. There are no words to describe how much I love a delicious hamburger and a cold, frosty mug, but these are the decisions that I see my unsatisfied friends make night after night.


I know people who are in volatile, destructive, unloving relationships. Somewhere in life, I think they got used to being with scum and started to believe that they were scum too. So, even though they want better, they don’t know how to achieve it.

These are the people I wish I could understand my point of view, knowing how powerful my mind is to control my decisions and control my life. From here on out, if I’m unsatisfied with something in my life, I’m changing it. There is no excuse not to.
