Taking action and voila your life is moving in the direction that you want.
It’s so easy to say, isn’t it?
But really that is only part of it and perhaps the easiest part.
First, you have to know what you want. I mean if you don’t know what you want to be, do and have, how are you ever going to take the first step. It’s like going into the forest, stumbling over fallen trees and ultimately end up lost because you didn’t even see the path you should take.
Secondly, you really have to know why you want to be, do and have something. Sure you could walk into the forest without purpose and while the sights and smells are amazing, if you don’t know the reason behind going into the forest, then what is the point?
And this may be the most important one, you have to rebel through the fear. You have to embrace the fears, doubts and limiting beliefs and be willing to look at the dark side of it all. I am not all love and light, in fact, I believe that if you don’t look on the other side, you don’t even know what needs to change, why you act/react in a certain way in the first place and acknowledge that in order to move forward you are in fact in control and in charge.
For many years, I made excuses. I could give you a list of reasons why I didn’t take action. This list looked something like this:
- I grew up in foster care and well foster kids aren’t successful.
- I was too promiscuous during my teenage years.
- I had a baby at 17 without really knowing how to be a parent.
- I’m an immigrant and I can’t make the kind of living I want here
- I don’t know how to make this life I want to happen
- I am not smart, good or savvy enough to pull it all (dreams, goals, etc)
And truly those are just excuses and I had to really look at the dark side. No growing up in foster care was not my fault, but repeating the story of rejecting and abandonment and using it as a reason, totally up to me. I had to rewrite the story, change my beliefs and really see the value and the lessons on my own journey.
And here I am today believing that whatever I want to do I can do. That I am good enough and more importantly worthy of all the be, do and have dreams and goals that are mulling in my head, heart, and soul.
Ultimately all of this required me to be absolutely clear on what I wanted to be, do and have, work on myself and my mindset and tap into why I wanted any of it.
It’s not easy work, but shoot it’s so worth it.
