Action Brings Happiness And Success

By HappySkinnyGirl

Cynthias over at garbagethatgoo tagged me for a 6 word or less memoir, to live by. Her’s was the time is always now. My 5 word memoir is action brings happiness and success.

”Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action” by Benjamin Disraeli.

When we’re feeling stuck about the current situation, it’s better to take action. Do some planning and take precautious. Don’t make any execuses for not taking action. We can’t always control the outcome, but most likely the situation will change to the better. Learning to believe and have faith in yourself is a critical part of being happy.

Sometimes we don’t feel like taking action, for exmple going to the gym. In those situations, don’t let feelings determine your course. We need to take control of our feelings in order to achieve success. Without action we don’t get anywhere. If you want to lose weight, don’t wait until your current situation is perfect, do it now.

Decide to have a good day is also an action.

I remember an illustration of a cartoon character having a bad day. If you think “this is a shitty day” all day long, your will end up feeling shit when you get home. However, if you decide you’re not going to let those negative feelings affect you, at least you can relax and maybe feel a little better when you get home even though it’s a shitty day. At the end of the day, YOU decide if you want to have a good day or bad day. Which one will feel better?

I invite the following bloggers to write their own 6 Word Memoir, a phrase to live by. You don’t have to if you don’t feel like playing.

Marie – nourish ourselves
Lady G – lady-g-fitness
Lady – love my chubs
Bobby- bobby boys
Mike – livelife 365

Rules of play:
Write your own six word or less memoir…
post it on your blog….
Link to the person who tagged you..
Tag 5 or more bloggers…
Leave a comment on the tagged bloggers site with an invitation to play….

    HSG, this is so embarrassing! I don’t know how to tag the bloggers I send this to!! I am so happy you sent this to me and I have my response ready. If you could let me know how to put in the links, that is all I need.

    I will try to see if I can do it on my own in the meantime.

    Marie 🙂

    I love your 6 word memoir! A great recipe for a great life. I am someone who loves thinking and reading and writing and similar activities that don’t have a lot of action – but to make a difference you certainly have to put those reflections and learnings into action!

    I’ll be thinking of a memoir for myself…6 words is so few!

    Lady G, I know, 6 words is so few. It took me a few days to figure out. I’m looking forward to reading yours! 🙂

    HSG, Great post and refreshingly positive and giving. I really like your style and it is a flower in the dessert compared to the harsh and snarky comments on a lot of blogs. I’ll keep checking back in the future for more goodness.
