Act Now!

By: Will Wavvy

This is the 9th affirmation based off the book, The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino.  As in the rest of the affirmations in this series, read this out loud, at least 3 times a day (when you first get up, at some point in the middle of your day, and before you go to bed), for 30 days. If this is your first time reading one of these affirmations, you can read a list of all the affirmations, by clicking here.

I will act now.

My dreams are worthless, my plans are dust, and my goals are impossible.  All are of no value unless they are followed by action.

I will act now.

Never has there been a map, however carefully executed to detail a scale, which carried its owner over even one inch of ground.  Never has there been a parchment of law, however fair, which prevented one crime.  Action alone is the tinder, which ignites the map, the parchment, my dreams, plans, and goals into a living force.  Action is the food and drink, which will nourish my success.

I will act now.

My procrastination, which has held me back was born of fear and now I recognize this secret mined from the depths of all courageous hearts.  Now I know that to conquer fear I must always act without hesitation and the flutters in my heart will vanish.  Now I know that action reduces the lion of terror to an ant of equanimity.

I will act now.

Act Now Limited Time OpportunityI will repeat these words again, and again, each hour, each day, every day, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing and the actions that follow, become as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids.  With these words I can condition my mind to perform every act necessary for my success.  With these words I can condition my mind to meet every challenge, the failure avoids.

I will act now.

When I awake I will say them and leap from my cot while the failure sleeps yet another hour.  When I enter the market place I will say them and immediately confront my first prospect while the failure ponders yet his possibility of rebuff.  When I face a closed door I will say them and knock while the failure waits outside with fear and trepidation.

I will act now.

I will walk where the failures fear to walk.  I will work when the failure seeks rest.  I will talk when the failure remains silent.  I will call on ten while the failure makes grand plans to call on one.  I will say it is done before the failure says it is too late.

I will act now.

For now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy.  I am not lazy.  Tomorrow is the day when the evil becomes good.  I am not evil.  Tomorrow is the day when the weak becomes strong.  I am not weak.  Tomorrow is the day when failure will succeed.  I am not a failure.

I will act now.

Lest I act I will perish in a life of failure, misery, and sleepless nights.  Success will not wait.  If I delay she will become betrothed to another and lost to me forever.  This is the time.  This is the place.  I am the man.

I will act now.
