Plans don’t mean a thing without ACTION
There is that wonderful saying “actions speak louder than words,” although I prefer “actions speak louder than just making plans.” How many times have you thought about doing something, planned for it, dreamed it, got excited about, and yet you made no actions to actually make that something happen. Truth is, it’s easy to talk about your ideas, dreams etc., and it’s much harder to start doing. I know this from experience, we all do.
Falling into the trap of being a dreamer without actions is easy. It’s pretty amazing how we make plans; we get excited, we start whatever project we have dreamed up in our head, and then “BOOM,” the momentum is gone or maybe there wasn’t ever any momentum to begin with. Maybe we never even got around to the actions to make our plans happen, to make our dreams a reality. We have given up without trying. And then to make ourselves feel better, we voice the ever-expected, “it wasn’t meant to be” and call it a day.
So why don’t we take action? I’ll tell you: we are scared, we don’t want to risk being vulnerable, we want assurance that it is all going to work out. I hear you, I’ve been there, I am still there at times, but I am fighting this fear head on. And believe me, the fighting gets less severe with every action you take. Every single time you take one step forward, the fear gets smaller, the confidence grows and you begin to not just realize your dreams are possible but see your dreams become a reality
Here’s are three quick steps to get there – fast:
1. Figure out exactly what you want. Make the statement concrete and as detailed as possible. Write it down, just do it.
2. Eliminate excuses. Initially you won’t think of many, but as you start going, excuses will pop up in every corner especially when things don’t go your way. So eliminate them before you even start. Again, write them down, make them a reality as well.
3. Act. Now. Start building momentum and don’t stop. Don’t forget to write down your ideas. Writing things down makes things more real. Also, when in doubt, you can go back and look over the three steps to remember why you are doing this in the first place. And please remember: clarity comes from engagement, not thought. Got it? Good!
Bonus: Don’t forget, you have the entire universe at your fingertips, literally (Google!). Yes, the spiritual power is always at work but you MUST act in order for it to help you. Trying to manifest something out of thin air, well, good luck with that one, but making things happen by acting, then the universe will provide you with what you need. Don’t doubt that even for a little bit.
So, remember, those who don’t take risks, don’t drink champagne. And I love me some bubbly, so let’s do this and have a drink together in the end! Who’s with me?!
