“What do I want to achieve?” By answering this question, we begin to formulate our intentions. Once we have set our intentions, we can put them into action. And when we encounter a setback or problem, we can find inspiration to overcome the challenges and we can keep going.
When we recharge our inspiration over and over again, we develop a lingering sense of being inspired. We develop a bias towards taking action and towards facing the challenges head-on. It is said that people who achieve their goals and dreams usually have a bias towards taking action. This is common sense and a recipe for success.

Over time we develop emotional resilience and wisdom for handling those head-winds, just like a wind-surfer or sailor does when they skillfully sail into the wind.
- Reappraisals: What do I want my life to be like? I want the actions that I take to be inspired by my goals and dreams. I want thousands of big and small actions to add up into making my goals and dreams a reality. How can I maintain inspiration? I can develop a strong habit of seeking out inspiration every day. I can become more aware of what kinds of things inspire me. I can embed inspiration into my goals. If I surround myself with people who have a bias for action, they may inspire me by example and by sharing the wisdom that they acquired from their experiences. Once I am inspired, I know that I will make good decisions and I will make my very best effort when I take action.
I know what I want and I take action to achieve it
I do not leave my dreams to chance, I take action
With my spark ignited, it is time to take action
