Act! Don’t Be Acted Upon.

“And now, my sons, I speak unto you these things for your profit and learning; for there is a God, and he hath created all things, both the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are, both things to act and things to be acted upon.” – 2 Nephi 2:14

You and I are all brothers and sisters, sons and daughters of God, and gods in the making.  God has created us and we all have divine potential within us.  What would be the purpose of our existence here on this planet if we couldn’t choose for ourselves?Do you think we’d truly progress or advance in this mean world? It would be nice sometimes if we didn’t have to make decisions, especially the hard ones.  Aren’t those the most beneficial and rewarding if made correctly? Yeah they are!  However you can say they are the most devastating and horrific if made improperly. Isn’t that the beauty of progression? Learning through experience is real knowledge.  

We are here on Earth to become like our Creator, perfect in every way.  The way to such heights is to act and not to be acted upon.  We need to decide for ourselves the course we take for success in all that we do. We have it in us to be happy, successful, and powerful.  All we need to do is act! Make a decision and live with it, let the doubts fly by as you keep pushing forward.  I promise it works and will change us for the better!

Thank you!

Be happy.
