Anita, I listened to a Canadian body builder/trainer and the one thing that I remember him saying was, "Action is rewarded!" It has been said that making a decision and acting on it, even if it is wrong, is better than making no decision at all. We take action and learn from our mistakes and improve; when we do nothing, no learning takes place and nothing gets done.
"If you are not busy being born, you are busy dying." --Bob Dylan "Obstacles are those things we see when we take our eyes off our goals." "If we don't like where we are, change it! We are not trees." "Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity." -- Louis Pasteur, Chemist and Microbiologist
Are you familiar with the idiom "God helps those who help themselves"? My own experience has shown me that it holds much truth.
When we begin taking action we create a magnetic field around ourselves that says “I mean 'business' and I am serious about moving forward with my goals and aspirations” . This creates an energetic opening for solutions to 'magically' appear out of no-where, which is simply another way of referring to the quantum field of infinite potentiality, where all possibilities lie.
The universe/spirit/infinite intelligence/God - whatever it is you call the source from which you derive your strength and guidance - MEETS US AT THE POINT OF ACTION.
Action is a potent way of setting an intention in motion.
Don't wait for your fears to go away before you take action.
Feel your fears and take action anyway!
Imagine holding your fears, like a little child, by their hand. Tell them you appreciate and honor them while at the same time let them know that you are the adult and that you will be taking the lead from now on. Like children, our fears may get anxious, cry or throw a tantrum when faced with change or with anything that is unknown, Make that ok by acknowledging their feelings (ie. your anxiety) and then TAKE ACTION in the direction of your heartfelt goals and aspirations.
You cannot get what you’ve never had unless you’re willing to do what you’ve never done.
Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
