Yesterday we talked about action words. And Last week we talked about how powerful “words” can be. Especially from our own self talk. In order to make lasting change you have to take action. You can’t just think or wish that things will happen. You have to take action and move somewhere, whether that’s forward or backward, you have to move.
And you have to believe in yourself and talk positively “I can do this”! Because you can.
So many times we get so many different pans in the oven (and I am famous for this), that when it comes to taking action, we become frozen because there are so many choices. Where do I go first? How do I make this change in my life?
But the important part is that you just have to make a choice, and then MOVE! This choice is not going to determine the rest of your life. It is one step in a positive direction. Take the step. Move forward, then evaluate and take another step.
I listen to several podcasts about self-development or improvement and one that I listen to is called Next Level Life by Preston Pugmire. In it he talks a lot about changing your mindset and also about a strategy or idea called Ready, Fire, Aim. This is a bit different than what we usually hear (ready, aim, fire). He teaches the idea that we have to pull back the arrow and “fire” (act, do something), then see where the arrow lands, then evaluate and take another shot. But the point being we have to MAKE A MOVE.
As we come up on the end of the year. I hope that we will come at it sprinting to the end of it. And then breaking through the tape and running straight on into 2020 full steam. We can change, we can take control and start seeing the results of our effort!
I love this quote from Philip Floor’s book Ready, Fire, Aim. ” Expecting things to change, without being willing to change, will result in no change—because nothing changed.”
Have a great day, we’ll do it again tomorrow.
