Want milk?

During my morning ritual, today, I read the following quote:

“Parties who want milk should not seat themselves on a stool in the middle of the field in hope that the cow will back up to them.”

Elbert Hubbard

What does this make you think?

It made me realize that there are many times, which I think that I am being proactive; when in actuality, I am not. Frequently, I say that I want something but I do nothing toward getting that or making it happen.

It is what I believe is the flaw with The Secret. They say that if you ask for it and believe, it will happen. I, personally, believe that they left out one key part: action. You have to do something. Nothing in life just happens. You always do something to make things happen. Even taking no action or indecision are choices and actions.

What will you do today to stop waiting for the cow to back up to you?

I will be planning my day and putting my plan into action!
