If you’re like me, you listen to inspiring podcasts (a lot!), read books, and talk with others about creating more joy and success in our lives. There is something so cozy and calm about settling in for a long drive or a morning walk listening to stories, experiences, and lessons all focused on this idea of feeling good in our lives. It’s the inspiration that sparks our imagination for new possibilities.
Let us not forget, however, while the listening, talking, planning, and preparation is all part of the process, without ACTION, everything fizzles away.
Why is taking action so difficult?
1. Sometimes we get STUCK. We don’t have the energy to move forward, to do the things we know we must do to get what we want. Maybe it’s because we are stuck in the past, worried about the future, in a vicious cycle of habits that don’t work well for us, or simply because we are full of fear.
2. Sometimes we make life complicated. We think we have to chase and grab and fight really hard for what we want. In the process, we drain our energy and what is left is this sort of emptiness.
3. We suffer from the “perfection complex”…so we are hard on ourselves AND others…and it’s exhausting.
What’s the solution?
Sometimes, we simply need a refresh.
A period of time to step back, evaluate the current state of affairs, imagine something new, and build the energy to move towards what we want with ease.
The fun part about the process is when we tap into our imagination and how we want to feel, that is where the magic can begin. When we engage these feelings ahead of time, on a regular basis, not only is the journey to our goal/desire a lot more fun, we probably arrive at our desired destination a wee bit quicker.
Something to ponder….”What do I need to do in order to move forward?”
P.S. I work with individuals and companies on hitting that reset button. If you need support in this area, reach out to me for a complimentary chat regarding my “Life Refresh” program.
Have a great weekend!
