Success begins when you start. An old riddle illustrates: One hot afternoon, seven frogs sat on a log at the edge of a pond. To cool off, four decided to jump into the pond. How many frogs were left on the log? The answer is seven. Why? The four only “decided” to jump. And there’s a big difference between merely deciding and actually doing. Here’s the point: Dreams, intentions, resolutions, and even best plans are not worth much, unless we act on them. Act upon your decisions—whether in your personal, professional, or spiritual life! Don’t wait till all doubts, uncertainties, and obstacles have been removed. The best way to start is to start. Without action, a dream is a daydream (Matthew 21:28-32). Jump off the log now!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim.
