Taking action

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.
Norman Vincent Peale

So many times in life we are paralyzed by inaction. The above quote by Norman Vincent Peale is one of my favorites. I have it hanging in my gym. It is a constant reminder to me that as long as I keep going, keep getting up after falling that I will be alright.

It is easy to give up and just go through the motions of life without really living. For some a loved one dying is what it takes for them to wake up and start to live. We only have so much time here on this plain so it is best to make the best of it. Breaking through walls of resistance, walls usually of our own making, happen one swing of the sledgehammer at a time.

Rarely do we just get through a situation without adjustments to our path, it takes time, patience and faith in ourselves and sometimes others to make it happen. Being delusional is easier though, ignoring that something might be wrong and not listening to ourselves and our inner guidance is more common than not.

What kind of world would we have if more people stopped blaming others and improved themselves, mind their own business and kept to their own course in life? A better one I would think. I call you to action readers, act as if it is the last thing you are going to do. Act as if you have but one more day on this planet and you are going to make it the ‘best day ever’!!

Take action even if it is the wrong one and don’t be fearful of changing up what you are doing, bend in the winds of life and you will not break. Keep a cool head about you and ask for help if you must, trust, breath and let go.

Be at peace with yourself and others and be free as the free being that you have forgotten that you are…
