Purely Intellectual Energy Versus Getting Things Done

We can all theorize, pontificate and talk, but to achieve what we want is a much better story than anything we can talk or think about. Here is a bottom line on what to do to genuinely and purely achieve what is wanted.

Sure, feeding our mind with knowledge and honesty is a good thing. But not procrastinating and using the knowledge and honesty is even better. Here is the main difference: When the theory is intelligent and workable, people listen. But, unless they see concrete results to back up the theory, nobody will continue to listen or take any heed.

So, let us face it, there is only one way to actualize thoughts and that is to do it and succeed at doing it. Failure is just more unfulfilled theory. Success is what counts in reality and winning really is everything in this sense although you have to "open the combination lock of life" to do this successfully.

There are many, many wrong combinations to open success for yourself, but, one right combination that makes everything "open up" and work for the person opening the lock. So, reality is not theory, indeed, it is practice, consistent practice and then success. Indeed, success is what counts, all else is other than success and there is not any genuine failure unless you genuinely quit.

A good intellect with many options is one thing, but getting things done with that intellect with many options without matter to what it rationally takes is another. We can all theorize and dream of a better life, but, to achieve it, that is earned power. Is not earned power all it comes down to? Is seeming failure training for what genuinely succeeds? Sure, I ask these questions. But in a way I answered them already in the first couple of paragraphs before this, read it all again.

For I am not writing from a mere theoretical base or even intellectual. I am writing from the standpoint of consistent action being taken, even when "I do not want to do it" because it will achieve a result that I want to achieve. The last sentence is part of what I like to call the "ultimate winning factor". For if we want to win in the ultimate way, we need to do what needs to be done to achieve what we want to achieve, in that order.

Listen, we can buy all the wonderful theory in the world from a bookstore, or borrow it from a library and come up with good sounding thoughts from the ideas we get. Unless we back all those thoughts up with actual achievements, they are nothing but theory.

My name is Joshua Clayton, I am a freelance writer based in Inglewood, California. I also write under a few pen-names and aliases, but Joshua Clayton is my real name, and I write by that for the most part now. I am a philosophical writer and objective thinker and honest action taker.

I also work at a senior center in Gardena, California as my day job, among other things, but primarily I am a writer.
