How many of you have wished that everything else would just stop and leave you alone so that you would have time, space and freedom to reach your goals achieve the things you want in your life? I know for sure that we all have goals and aspirations for ourselves in relation to our health as you have all openly voiced them to me. So in our minds, we have all committed to wanting to take action on something – for example, let’s say it’s to lose weight. After you have decided to do this you begin the process of talking about it to others, seeking professional advice, researching online how to lose weight, looking up healthy recipes online and following healthy people on social media etc BUT… we miss the most integral part of this process which is the EXECUTION and the ACTION of losing weight!!
I think that we spend too much time thinking about how we are going to do things, we get stuck in our thoughts, in our plans, in the “what if I tried this” or “what if I did that” and they are all just thoughts, we still haven’t taken any action. I believe we hesitate around actioning things, rather we delay everything in our lives. I liken it to a quote from a video I shared with you all on our group Facebook page the other day, it said something like this:
“Start thinking of your life as an emergency, if you don’t immediately wake up to your life and your world and start to do the things that you love, believe in, have a purpose for, have the ability to share, then you are stealing, you are stealing this precious life that you have been given”.
This is how we have conditioned our minds to cope and the longer we stay inside our conditioned minds the longer those goals and aspirations don’t happen, and the next year comes and we are still where we were a year ago. The only way to get out of our conditioned state is to take ACTION, to just get up and get on with it. Start writing that novel, draw that painting, improve your eating and diet, build that business idea, call your loved ones to take action and just do it!!
