It is such a logical and reasonable concept, yet it doesn’t stop so many from waiting for the desired results without having performed the work required for the bounty to emerge. Setting objectives and knowing what we want to happen in our lives is essential, but performing the actions required to achieve those results is paramount. Determine the desired outcome, identify the steps needed to get there, and methodically complete them; evidence will present itself along the way confirming that our efforts are not being done in vain. 

—Mike Hazell
