My Man Of Action

The Active Decision

I Am a Person of Action.

Beginning today, I will create a new future by creating a new me. No longer will I dwell in a pit of despair, moaning over squandered time and lost opportunity. I can do nothing about the past. My future is immediate. I will grasp it in both hands and carry it with running feet. When I am faced with the choice of doing nothing or doing something, I will always choose to act! I seize this moment. I choose now.

I am a person of action. I am energetic. I move quickly.

Knowing that laziness is a sin, I will create a habit of lively behavior. I will walk with a spring in my step and a smile on my face. The lifeblood rushing through my veins is urging me upward and forward into activity and accomplishment. Wealth and prosperity hide from the sluggard, but rich rewards come to the person who moves quickly.

I am a person of action. I inspire others with my activity. I am a leader.

Leading is doing. To lead, I must move forward. Many people move out of the way for a person on the run; others are caught up in his wake. My activity will create a wave of success for the people who follow. My activity will be consistent. This will instill confidence in my leadership. As a leader, I have the ability to encourage and inspire others to greatness. It is true: An army of sheep led by a lion would defeat an army of lions led by a sheep!

I am a person of action. I can make a decision. I can make it now.

A person who moves neither left nor right is destined for mediocrity. When faced with a decision, many people say they are waiting for God. But I understand, in most cases, God is waiting for me! He has given me a healthy mind to gather and sort information and the courage to come to a conclusion. I am not a quivering dog, indecisive and fearful. My constitution is strong and my pathway clear. Successful people make their decisions quickly and change their mind slowly. Failures make their decisions slowly and change their mind quickly. My decisions come quickly, and they lead to victory.

I am a person of action. I am daring. I am courageous.

Fear no longer has a place in my life. For too long, fear has outweighed my desire to make things better for my family. Never again! I have exposed fear as a vapor, an impostor who never had any power over me in the first place! I do not fear opinion, gossip, or the idle chatter of monkeys for all are the same to me. I do not fear failure, for in my life, failure is a myth. Failure only exists for the person who quits. I do not quit.

I am courageous. I am a leader. I seize this moment. I choose now.

I am a person of action.

  1. That is by far my favorite decision!

  2. Remember, none of the others work without implementing this one!

    You’re my Man of Action.

  3. I need to work on my fears. I have terrible fears lately.
    I need to get this book.

  4. You would really enjoy the book. It’s a fun, easy read. I’d highly recommend it! I think Victoria Osteen’s book, Love Your Life would be good for an easy read and giant “hug”.

    When I become fearful I sometimes will speak out “God did not give me a spirit of fear but of power and love and sound mind.” Fear is the opposite of faith. I would encourage you to constantly listen and read and speak things that build up your faith. That will help diminish the fear.

    Do you download mp3s? James is constantly downloading really encouraging stuff. Our faves are Joel Osteen, Dave Ramsey, Andy Stanley, Joyce Meyer, Rabbi Daniel Lapin. He gets most of their stuff off of i-tunes. It’s free, along with most podcasts. Start pumping that stuff in constantly, while in the car, in the kitchen, in bed at night. During particulary difficult times James will let the stuff play all night while we sleep. I wake in the night to the sound of our pastor preaching! You can get the bible on audio, too.
