Do Not Wait To Strike Till The Iron Is Hot But Make It Hot By Striking. -William B. Sprague

Do Not Wait To Strike Till The Iron Is Hot But Make It Hot By Striking.

-William B. Sprague

If I sit around waiting for inspiration to strike, odds are I won’t accomplish much.

Why? Inspiration is a whim I can’t control.

What I can control are my decisions and my actions as the result of those decisions.

This goes back to personal integrity, which I define as:

Doing what I know I need to do, when I know I need to do it, whether I feel like it or not.

And here’s the strange thing about living in that integrity.

When I show up and begin, it’s incredible how often inspiration miraculously shows up too.

Fortune favors the consistent.

So does inspiration.

When you show up and do what you must consistently, every day, you practically force inspiration to show up too.

Try it. I dare you. 😁
