Motivational Power Quote

 

Take the Bull by its Horns

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear.

Action breeds confidence and courage.

If you want to conquer fear,

do not sit home and think about it.

Go out and get busy.”

Dale Carnegie 1888 - 1955, America writer and lecturer      

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

Take the bull by its horns

 

When something needs to be done take the bull by its horns and take action on doing what has to be done.

 

Taking action is taking the bull by the horns, for those who have the bull by the horns have control of the bull and their actions.

 

Not every action that we take will result in a business break through. But by taking action we are taking control of the situation and by taking control we can determine the direction we’re heading in and influence the outcome.

 

Inaction allows something to drift with no clear direction. If it’s drifting and not handled successfully it can get out of hand and out of control.  In other words the bull is controlling us.

 

By taking action you release your personal power and you take control of the conditions that come into your life and business. Taking action puts you in the position to control the outcome and how it will impact you and your business.

 

Inaction creates uncertainly and from the uncertainly it will create fear in responding to the condition.

 

Take the bull by its horns and your actions will create self-confidence. By taking action your confidence will grow and you will find yourself successfully taking on larger and larger projects successfully.

His choice of words were pretty amazing. I have heard the term "take the bull by its horns" forever. Having been gored by a bull once, I would advice actually attempting that, but the message is great.

In other words Lou, if you don't like the road you're traveling , start paving a new road.

Great advice. Have a nice weekend.
