Three Ducks – Decision vs. Action

Three Ducks - Decision vs. ActionA dear friend of mine, Phil, told me a story long ago that resonates with me to this day. It goes a little something like this…
There are three ducks in a pond and two decide to fly away. How many are left? Three, there is a big difference between decision and action.
Those who are successful in network marketing, multi level marketing or direct sales are not successful because they decided to be successful. They are successful because they took action! Consistent, daily action!

Personally, I started flapping my wings years ago. Not sure what the other two ducks are up to these days, but this duck is soaring with the eagles now and in the near future, I will be looking down upon the eagles from my lofty perch.
So what are you waiting for? Start flapping!
You ready to flap with me?

    Great timing with this post. It’s Monday morning, time to start flapping.

    You are right, there is a big difference between making a decision and taking action on your decision.

    I like the story… I already know this story but I have not applied it network marketing. I just use this for the riddles. You cannot move an inc without actions. Thank you
