People say action begats action, which begats more action. So taking action can create success because it creates forward movement. Action creates habits which can lead to success.
For example, you want to lose weight. There are two habits I would suggest you do to create action toward your success: 1) plan and prepare your meals for the week; and 2) track your food intake. You will create habits around your food and regarding your compliance with your plan.
Another example: you want to achieve business success. Two habits to focus upon are 1) prepare a business plan and 2) make a weekly to do list so you have a plan as to how to achieve success in accomplishing this business plan.
