You could literally read article after article about how to make money, get high search engine ranking, find customers & prospects, motivate yourself and others and several other subjects and realized that regardless of how much info you have gained, it's worthless if you don't act on the knowledge. And it's the same for everyone. It wouldn't matter if you had a PhD in Quantum Physics if you worked at McDonalds, or a library full of books and never used the knowledge within, now would it? Let me say this again, ACTION. Action makes people successful to a certain degree. Not to say that any action will make people successful. Jumping up and down or changing channels will not do it, but action of any kind that propels you toward your target goal will get you there eventually.
Another way to think of it is like having a map. I could give you a map to a lost treasure, but if you never left your house, it wouldn't do much good would it?
So here's a question; what action will you do today, to reach your goal? Reading a book will only take you so far.
Be Blessed family!
