Are you clear about what you want in life right now? What is it that you need to bring into the world right now? Is there a dream? A message? Knowing clearly what you want to say YES to means that you can also gain the clarity of what to say NO to.
What is really important to you? Knowing the what is critical. Success master Brian Tracy teaches to make a list of all the things you'd like to do or accomplish. Then go through the list and ask yourself, "If I could only do one of the things on this list, what would that one thing be? Now go do it."
The next step is knowing the WHY. Why do you want to accomplish this goal or build this dream? Answering the why will fuel you to move forward.
So, what do you really want? How honest can you be about this? How much do you really want it?
I once read in a book for writers that you know you have to write when it's more painful not to write, than to write. If you know what you want, if you're clear about that, there is not a better time than right now to take action.
Be more committed to your dream than to your insecurity!
Take some small action right NOW.
Coming up with a dream, whether it's business or personal, is the easy part. Taking the right action in the right direction is what will get you to your goals and dreams. The first step, before anything else can happen, is that you have to show up for yourself with commitment. Sometimes fear or uncertainty get in the way. This is what I know. If you take the steps, even if they are the wrong steps and in the wrong direction, if you are showing up for yourself, you will get the clarity you need and want.
Only you know the truth about what you want for yourself, your family, or your community. Step one is to show up. Now, if you can, take a moment to get centered within yourself, be still, and ask yourself: What does showing up look like for me? You have your best answers inside. Listen, see, feel, imagine, envision.
When you take the first step by showing up with a commitment, the sea might even just part!
