Do or Die is an old saying. Now, the new saying is “DO BEFORE YOU DIE.”

Are you a doer, planner or dreamer?

“Talk doesn’t cook rice” Chinese Proverb.

People are excellent with paper work, paper planning, deliberation and delegation also. Few are doers. Today morning, in New Zealand, Gautam Gambhir became a doer. His performance has helped India to come out from the shameful failure and India was able to maintain lead in the series because of his ‘DOING’ attitude.

Doing is everything. Doers never expose themselves, their doing expose themselves. Let your accomplishment and achievement speaks. When you have to speak about your doings, it means you are not even half-way.

Arnold H. Glasow says very profoundly, “An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied.”

Doers command respect and control life. They design their destiny even in stubborn time and concord all the obstacles.

Lord Herber explains it in a very simple way, “The shortest answer is doing.”

The more you have ‘DOER’ attitude, your creditability will be double. People may doubt your words but they will never doubt your actions. Actions with speed in a specific direction, creates only wonders. You will reach to the place in life, which you have not dreamt of. Aroma of your actions will generate trust in the people. Right actions today and tomorrow will create rainbow in your life, which can shelter people around you with smiling face.

Virginia Satir (American Psychologist and Educator, 1916-1988) wrote very specifically;

“I am Me. In the entire world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it — I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By doing so, I can love myself and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzles me, and other aspects that I do not know — but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own myself, and therefore, I can engineer me. I am me, and I am Okay.”

Lot more is inside in doing instead of saying.

“Action is the last resource of those who know not how to dream,” said Oscar Wilde.
