Actions Speak Louder Than Words Quotes to Kickstart Your Motivation

It’s so easy to get stuck in thinking. In talking about what you want to do. In dreaming.

To a large part simply because it’s easier than taking action and step by step keep moving forward to achieve your tasks, goals and dreams.

The inner resistance towards taking action is most often there. And the fear of failing can also hold you back.

My weekly go-to when it feels hard to take action towards my own goals is to…

  • Break what I need to do into smaller steps. Steps that only take 5-10 minutes to complete. Then I focus on just the first of those small steps until I have completed it.
  • If the inner resistance is extra strong and I still procrastinate then I break my task down into tiny steps that only take 1-2 minutes to complete.

I hope that small, but in my experience, powerful tip helps you this week.

And that the collection of 80 actions speak louder than words quotes in this post will renew your motivation and help you to focus fully on taking action instead of talking and daydreaming.
