Turning a Thought into Action
To do what I had always wanted to do, it felt like making a fantasy come true. Throughout my years, I have changed my life several times.
Thinking happens naturally and automatically. Taking action, on the other hand, is a totally different process. How many times have you had a brilliant world changing idea and never followed through?
In order to make things happen you need 3 things:
- Have an idea
- Make a committed decision
- Take consistent action
Forget about the How and the When, if you take consistent action it will happen, yes or yes. Often we get wrapped up with the daily routines of work and “busy”-ness, and this doesn’t allow room for creativity. Where we focus our attention is what we are creating with our energy. As humans we have been conditioned to go, go, go, and then one day we realize we have been living a life that is not fulfilling. I know this from personal experience because I did it for so many years!!!
I thought I loved what I was doing, I thought I was mildly happy, I thought my relationships were okay, until the day I thought everything in my life wasn’t good enough and I decided to live a fulfilling life. My next dilemma was, how was I going to do it?
It took a lot of courage to leave a pretty successful career, leave my country, and leave my loved ones to change my life. To do what I had always wanted to do, it felt like making a fantasy come true. Throughout my years, I have changed my life several times.
When I felt my life wasn’t good enough, I changed it. I decided I wasn’t going to live a mediocre life. I didn’t want my children to learn to live a mediocre life, I wanted them to be happy, fulfilled in all areas and teach them to go for it, to do whatever it takes to achieve happiness in all areas, at least to always try it!
I am not perfect, my children are not perfect, but I won’t resign to being okay ever anymore, I did it and I didn’t like it. Taking consistent action in my life is a norm, I do it everyday in everything I do, because not doing it is not good enough.
Another thing that has helped me significantly is Meditation and Journaling. Without these two tools I would not have clarity of my thoughts and action steps for my goals. If you are curious about establishing a practice of these for yourself, please reach out.
Today when someone asks me, How is your day going? I can say, my day is going great, every day is a great day even when things don’t work out, still I see the good.
We are here to live extraordinary lives, and it is the stories in our minds that prevent us from taking action. If you are looking for help in shifting your experience of life, please sign up for a FREE 1:1 Consultation with me.
Take action every day to have the life you want to have, that brings you happiness.
