The Ancestor of Action

The ancestor of every action is a thought.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson “

This quotation by one of my favorite authors summarizes much of my writing on the concept of creating action and in creating sales!

Thought, ideas and attention alike precede any action.

For example, have you ever had the thought, “I’m hungry.” And been inclined to go into action to satisfy that hunger? This action was preceded by and motivated by your thought.

Also, what caused your attention to be directed toward hunger? Was it a growling stomach? An ad you saw on TV? Or someone is saying that they were hungry?

Whatever the initial cause, your attention and thought motivated your action to satisfy your hunger.

The ancestor of action is thought and attention.

Attention is directed interest or curiosity.

Curiosity stimulates imagination and desire.

Imagination and desire motivate “want” and the action necessary to get it.

Want to be more in control of your life, do something worthwhile, and have more fun? It all starts with a self-determined decision.

Why not try it. It just might work.
