Go For The Win


Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/6468196

At some point in life after studying all you can, observing all you see, understand the world around you, sizing up the competition, and preparing yourself - you'll be ready, but ready for what I ask? Why not go for the win. If you want to win you have to be bold, you have to make a decision, and you have to execute the plan. Far too many people spend all their time strategizing, getting ready, getting set, getting on their mark, and then waiting for the opportunity, for everything to be perfect, before they pull the trigger.

Indeed, I would submit to you that hesitation, procrastination, and excuses are nothing more than pure evil. Therefore, putting off the inevitable, or failing to go for it when it's necessary is immoral. Failing to act, to do, or to get the job done for whatever reason, excuse, justification, or mitigating circumstances is not to be admired regardless of how elaborate, intricate, or complicated the reasoning. When it all comes down to it, what we need are fewer apologies, more action, and more achievement. Success often goes to the bold, and so I ask are you bold enough to go for it?

Okay so, now would be a good time, what's the hold up, and don't give me some song and dance, more reasons why you can't, won't, or don't dare, or why you must acquiesce to circumstances beyond your control. That's not how you win. To win you must battle the obstacles in your way, deny defeat, and refuse to let anyone break your stride. To be bold you must push the pedal to the metal, you must accelerate in the face of adversity, and you must stand and get it done. If not, it's just talk, that doesn't impress me much, and it certainly won't win accolades from the crowd.

Oh sure, there is a time for prudence, posturing, politics, planning, and discretion but at some point those periods are past, and it's time to pull the trigger. Make a move, don't just talk about it. You see, no one is going to look up to you for those things you might do in the future. Don't expect anyone to be impressed with your daring strategic objectives, because in this world it is about performance prior to praise. It's about success, winning, and accomplishment. Anyone can talk about, in fact most people do, but the ones which impress me are those who walk their talk, and go out there and do it.

Go for the Win!
