Why arent you people takin action? Please give me (n you) a HONEST answer. No not that stuff like "uuuhh i have school/work" "i have this an that disorder" "i have no money" an so on. Its all a bunch of lies. Give us a real answer.

Without action you aint got shit. Knowledge without action is 100% useless and stupid. Say you want to make some bigass advanced fancy dinner so you get all the ingredients. Then you do nothin an just let the ingredients rot. You have no dinner and you just wasted a lot of time n money gettin the ingredients.

Thats what your doin by not takin action. All that shit you ‘know’ is rotting your mind and fuckin you up. Thats what happens when you dont take action. Your mind rots. Your killin your own mind.

The only reason we can even understand to begin with is for takin action. Action without understanding is still action an thats great. Understanding without action is useless junk data rotting your mind.

So why arent you takin action? Why arent you even takin those tiny actions that dont really take any effort? Why are you so damn proud of and content with this ‘knowledge’ of yours? You shouldnt be. Thats like bein proud of heroin abuse or pedophilia. Im exaggeratin? Not really.

Action is the only thing that means anything at all. Nothing else matters.

Get yo shit together an take action. NOW!

Keep it real

@Phil W. I think OP means action on an injustice known to you. Such as all these people that complain about the government being corrupt but don’t protest.

Kayla (28) (@tangerinesky624) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

what action are you taking, pata? :)

Kayla (28) (@tangerinesky624) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

and I think a lot of peoples reasons for not taking action is that they do not know what to do.

Tom (39) (@lonewanderer) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

Yeah anyone can talk a good game, how are you taking action in your life right now Pata?

Filip (2,818)M (@filipek) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

My thoughts exactly Pata, the only difference is that I am asking those questions to myself.

…. I could and would ask million questions about this matter, and keep writing for hours and hours, but what is the point. Falling again in the same old trap, yeah, knowledge without action is useless.

Filip (2,818)M (@filipek) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

Every reason to not take action is just a stupid excuse, no matter what. There are no excuses for taking (or not taking in this matter) action.

Filip (2,818)M (@filipek) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

It is about the essence of what Pata is telling and not how he/she is telling it. The other things and so called ‘yelling and demanding explanations’ are not the point I think. A simple reminder for all of us.

Shredder (16) (@shredder) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

I think he’s encouraging you do what you want instead of thinking about it. And yes, some people don’t do what they want because they don’t know what it is, and some are lacking in the action department. He’s right, start doing what you love =) Idk who specifically is not taking action >_> I get plenty! Ha

BirdFlyingHigh (152) (@birdflyinghigh) 9 years, 10 months ago ago


I’m doing shit irl. I just like to come to talk to you fine people because we can talk about intense, interesting shit whenever we want, we don’t have to have the pretense of getting shitfaced or stoned together first.

BirdFlyingHigh (152) (@birdflyinghigh) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

but WOOOOO YEAAAAHHH DO IT GUYS!!!!! Whatever you’ve got kicking around in the old noggin, start acting!

Remember, all journeys begin with a single step! And journeys are often more fun with a friend! Get started and let’s go!

Pata (4) (@odjur) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

@Phil Way to be ignorant bro.

P (awsom name) Thats an example yeah. But im talkin about takin action in general.

Im takin lots of action on various things like spreading a message helpin people and making my life the way i want it to be.

People dont take action cuz they dont know what they want? Thats the point. Take action on finding it out then. Right now. You are correct n I appreciate your reply but its not why they dont take action. Its HOW they dont take action, not why.

Youre just tryin to divert the attention from you by tryin to turn it against me instead. Dont do that, cuz your the one who will suffer for it.

Exactly. But why do you think im askin these questions? Cuz people dont ask themself enough. or they are too soft on themself. I appreciate your post. Its great.

Pata (4) (@odjur) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

@Shelby I aint yellin or demanding anything. Sure I could ask what action your takin but thats not what I want to ask. If it was I would have asked that. Im askin why you dont take action because thats the question I want to ask and the question I know people need to hear. But nobody answers. The only answers given here are either a bunch of silly excuses or attempts to distract the attention (like your post for example.)

I didnt make this thread to inspire or motivate. I made it to ask a question like I clearly stated many times in the OP. A question that needs to be ask, the obious proof is that nobody can even answer it.

The point of the thread isnt really to encourage action. The point is to get answers about why people arent takin action? Blastin the blocks that keep these people from action. Motivating others is no good cuz it requires constant refill. Im workin on getting people to motivate themself an thats what really works an dont require no refill.

Colvard If it dont sink in its because you dont take action.

Knowledge does rot. It doesnt build. Dont listen to that little bitch mind cuz its only tryin to fool you into doin what your used to, inaction n information overload. That means youll keep gettin the exact same results and if your sane you dont want that and you wont listen to that little bitch mind. Knowledge is like food. If you take in more than you use youre weakening n slowly killing yourself.

Thats the spirit. I like it.

Pata (4) (@odjur) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

Take a look at this thread

If you posted in it or feel you have a goal like that (you do dont fool yourself) then start takin action on it right now.

‘But I dont know how.’ ‘I have no time.’ ‘I have no money.’ Bullshit excuses. Take action right away. If you dont know how then find out or just do it anyway n learn a long the way. You have no time? Yes you do n your the only one distributin it. All this school n work n shit is not somethin you have to do, you just chose it. You have no money? Get the money or do it without money.

If you have the time to chat on the internet or watch tv or read the paper then you have the time to take action. If you have the money to afford a computer and/or apartment then you have the money to take action. Stop makin excuses.

And nobody has even answered my question from the OP yet. WHY ARE YOU NOT TAKIN ACTION?

“Becaaaaaause. These chicks don’t even know the name of my baaaaaand. My baaand, my baaaand, my baaaaand, my baaaand, my baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, baby, baby.”
First, taking action is like shutting the fuck up first.
That’s all. There’s no second.
Random motivation.

Exactly, I could not say it any better.

To answer your questions why I am not taking the action necessary: I am scared, I am afraid of the unknown, I am afraid of being rejected and/or I am afraid of not being accepted because I have not learn yet to fully accept myself, but most of all I am scared to dead that when I leave my comfort zone and take a leap of faith, something bad will happen, something inconvenient, something which I simply do not know about.

I think most of us who are not taking action are facing the same issues as I do. Though everybody has different life experiences and learned different life lessons and therefore everybody has his/her own reasons for not taking the action necessary.

I think you have the fall in the deepest core of a big black hole, in order to be able to crawl out of it and take the action necessary. As long as we are SPOILED, as we all are in the western world, because we do not have to put any effort to survive, we will not take the action that is necessary in order to find our inner peace.

We simply live as lazy spoiled animals.

I think that fear overtakes a lot of people. Mother Nature wants us to be comfortable and reproduce, and through nature we feel a sense of fear toward what is different and may change people around us in a big way, or the world itself. It is resistance at it’s finest.

Anonymous (2,654) (@) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

The whole winter, I’ve been toughening myself while staying in the cold, breathing fresh air. There is no such thing as a comfort zone. Take the first step of feeling everything you don’t like as something natural. Stop thinking about yourself and reflect everything you say. It blinds you. Lose your mind and you’ll see. There is nothing wrong with losing yourself if you’re aimed at something constructive, which may be your greatest passion. Sounds romantic. :) It is.

Fyrirrek (17) (@fyrirrek) 9 years, 10 months ago ago

There is a point here. Action. is good yes. BUT. You need an intelligent course of action + PLAN of how you are going to achieve it.

This is what I learned through a bazillion different courses of my past jobs and people wonder about action a lot.

Ways. Take action yes. If it doesn’t work, make new plans. Then try next action. If this doesn’t work, go back. Do research make plans. Take action. Study other people who have succeeded in what you want to do. See if you can emulate that plan of action. Or cater it. Reach out. Get to know people in that field. Keep with the action. The action in itself is very powerful and simple. Keep action simple where you can.

I know this from the frustration of too much action or seemingly like I was coming of as aggressive or challenging the establishment. (I hate when that happens…anyway people don’t listen or don’t open their eyes to the simple things sometimes. School which sometimes can be viewed as and is. “Approved material” Where the material by the time the student gets a hold of it. Is already dated. If it is challenged of course that person is now the disturber and all the other students go along with it. Out of respect. It’s Teacher Vs Industry Professional. Master Vs Student. What’s actually happening versus what are we talking about. I always asked questions and sometimes got hung out to dry. Context.

I just want to address ways on HOW to take action. I guarantee you’ll start being an action freak! and the word action won’t be scary. You’ll be the go to person. This will in turn build your confidence once you start moving on the smaller things…but don’t stop there. CHALLENGE yourself.

Action Take any athlete. Or anything you studied in school. If you don’t use this. “Put it into action” It gets weaker and it dies it’s not as sharp.

I believe there are many reasons we don’t take action. Some of them make sense. Bad timing for example. It would not be smart to take action at this junction in our agreement. Rational good, inaction. Like we can’t plant crop in the winter time. That’s all action with a bad map, blueprint bad system.

So lack of action could stem from taking many roadmaps, needing time to gather your senses step back and gain perspective. YOU are now in LOSS OF HOPE LAND and POOR ME syndrome. It’s more dangerous if you don’t even notice it! But if you have then bam. You are back on your way. Sometimes we can’t see we are making the wrong actions because we are too close to the situation to see the picture outside of ourselves. Or ineffective actions.

You must realize to maximize your quality of action. Then you make less pointless, or less likely to succeed actions.

People hurt man from actions that have come up with the less favourable result. Sometimes people need to hear the good. PROBLEM that softens up the DESIRE. You have to realize YOU are NOT HAPPY WITH THE RESULT. I WILL DO BETTER. You have to start talking to yourself like this I’m serious. Some people just don’t know that there could be a process to action they are missing. So READ. Read like a crazy person hybridize everything that makes sense to you that fuels MORE INSPIRATION for YOUR action.

Like keeping a diary for your actions. Aiming too high, taking on too much. Be human. People make the action too big in their head. It’s like if I told you. HEY MAN PAINT THE MONA LISA… would be infused with all this pressure by comparison of all the artists that came before you. SO

Aim big. Sometimes people laugh at me for big actions. I say I am going to do it man. Laugh all you want. Then they are confused when I actually put things in place. Like I am going to drive all across America with friends to see America. Your crazy man! Why is that crazy? Break it down plan it it’s possible but take these steps.

Break down the action. It’s easy. If you are just really out of whack. Say you will do this in the next 10 minutes. or for Half hour. Build on your lazy inaction. Log your actions. Be serious about your actions. Have discipline exercise it and you will love the results. Knowing you were even heading toward your goal gives you positive energy already. Know it’s going to be a battle be real and honest to yourself. Nothing awesome comes easy. Because if it was….well

Everybody would be doing it. It’s okay to be hard on yourself just don’t beat yourself up and get on to the next action. It’s better than not taking action and knowing you will get no result. Now that’s the real killer.

Remember. Regroup. Train. Be smart. Be obsessed with your goal. Seriously ask yourself if it didn’t even feel like you were pushing even breaking a sweat are not pushing enough. This is the discipline part. LEARN to push yourself. It’s good and gets easier with time.

Make time find your way to gain PERSPECTIVE

There is such a thing as a bad action. Maybe. We forgive ourselves and Learn. If we don’t learn from our action we recycle the whole situation again into futility.

Action isn’t taken in the sense I’m trying to gather. Out of basic fear of not really seeing the situation as something that you can over come.

When people think they can’t overcome their situation. They don’t take action.

Not one situation is the same. Think of you and don’t compare. You don’t even have to share your action goals. Because believe it or not. You need a safe place for formulate your goals and actions from criticism. Criticism is the killer. Fear of it. It’s silly really. But it plays out.

If they own their question. And make it a burning need. An obsession. It will not mentally be that important enough to even notice the “level of action” taken.

Once you organize. Why you are passionate about your goal.
Your desire and reason behind it for wanting it is sweating out of your pores
And have systems in place to get past the many many hardships you will face.

Then you have the basics for SUCCESSFUL ACTION

Know what you want (figure it out)
Know your territory (explore it)
Find a mentor (expert advice)

Trial error free fall into the excitement of your bloody sickening pulsing that which is life.

Everyone has their reasons. Whether they can justify it to themselves with rationalization is really only the individual can know. It’s easy to lie to ourselves.

And the extreme is too much action without any reflection. (Which is to say is okay sometimes if your already experienced and have developed a GUT feeling for the territory)

Like the man said. Why don’t you take action?

Maybe we’re still figuring it out, maybe we’re afraid. Maybe people will laugh at you.

I’ve been on the extreme end of action and am now trying to balance the art of inaction to gain better CLARITY in future action. PURPOSE of action. And SUFFICIENT REASON FOR BLOCK CAPITALS!

Ok I’m done now. Learn to laugh at your mistakes and inaction. Inaction…make sure it’s for a good reason.

Like music. You need the rest between the bars so the Action can speak in volumes.

Don’t fear failure. Fear complacency of success. Fear lack of motivation and lack of innovation.

Failing is normal. We can’t be super amazing at anything with one try. Right?

It’s funny that caps make you feel like someone is yelling but it’s really for emphasis.

Use a highlighter, use cards. Use your complete arsenal! You have more resources than you realize in this day and age. STATE OF MIND! what gets you into the efficient productive state of mind? Music? Sports? Find it!

Pata has a good point. And anyway we should yell at ourselves sometimes get serious…but don’t loose your sense of humour:)

Once you organize your action. You’ll be amazed what you can do in 24 hours.
