What do you find yourself most sorry for: Actions taken or actions not taken? Your level of confidence has a lot to do with whether you are or are not taking actions. And whether you are or are not taking actions; there are consequences and outcomes.
It’s a funny thing about actions taken; no matter how much they might end up blowing in your face, you always have one major comforting thought and thing to say: “Well, at least I did it.”
Having the confidence and courage to take actions that you would rather avoid like the plague and that scare the crap out of you, not only contributes to increasing your confidence but they also make you feel real good. Actions bring us the gift of satisfaction, results and the ever so gratifying reward of knowing.
I personally can’t stand the unknown. I have turned the fear of the unknown on its head. I don’t have a fear of the unknown I have a repulsion for the unknown. I will make myself do whatever I need to do in order to know.
Actions Not Taken
An action not taken can eat away at your soul for your entire life and cause you to “what-if” yourself to insanity. An action not taken can stay with you, clouding and impacting your every other action. In actions not taken you find: self-doubt, a lack of self-confidence, a lack of courage and fear. Actions not taken can create a tail spin of doubt, regret, disappointment, bitterness, envy and jealousy.
They keep people living in fear and denial. They cause us to make excuses and to procrastinate. Actions not taken are toxic.
