“Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence.
Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear.
Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow.
But any action is better than no action at all.”
~~ Norman Vincent Peale
(American Protestant Clergyman and Writer 1893-1993)

Okay, so you’ve decided what you want and you now have a story describing your ideal life.
That’s terrific because you need to know what you want.
Imagine driving your car not knowing what direction you’re going in.
Now what comes next?
Take Action to Get What You Want
When I first started intentionally creating what I wanted, I’d sit back and wait.
I didn’t know any better. And ultimately I got what I wanted just by writing a story or making a list of what I wanted, as suggested in Part 3 2 Easy and Effective Steps to Start Your Happy Life .
But today I know the benefits of taking action and I also enjoy taking action.
I’ve found I have more fun along the way – my journey is more exciting, I overcome more fears, develop greater confidence in what I’m doing and my result becomes even greater.
Why Does Taking Action Help?
Humans carry a lot of baggage.
We all have baggage.
This baggage can weigh us down, distract us, create fear, cause doubts and delay our ideal future.
By saturating your life every day with this new future, it keeps you aligned to your goal – it releases that baggage and keeps you motivated and on track.
