Sometimes we have great ideas or plans that remain just that, ideas. We toy with it, think on it, but never act upon it. Until it is forgotten or is successfully implemented by someone else.

If you can relate to this all too familiar scenario, the reason may be due to a lack of courage to take action. Because of fear of failure, embarrassment, or financial loss.

But, as Mark Twain succinctly stated- “Twenty years from now you’ll be more disappointed by the things you did not do than the ones you did.”

Therefore, the next time you have a good idea in mind, go ahead and take that necessary action to set it in motion and into fruition.

And for motivation, here are 31 of the best quotes you can use to help you act now.
