Hello fellow Life Lovers. There are times when things get so daunting that we don’t know where to turn or indeed, where to start. Here’s such a “story” with, thankfully a happy ending. Follow me please…..
It’s the start of a new day, a new week. You have decided that it’s about time for a fresh start. You are tired of the same old, same old. You are going to now make headway, get to where you want to be, time to be successful!
You have great intentions.
You want to get places.
You can’t wait to get started.
That’s all fine. However…….
There’s so much to do, so much information to sift through, so many choices, so many decisions……so much pressure!…..
The Mist descends.
Yes, this can be the situation. Indeed I’m sure we have all been in this boat before at some point. So then what happens?
Often…..nothing. We default back into old thought patterns, we retreat to the safety of our zone where we are comfortable.
”At least it was a great idea”, I hear you say.
You see great ideas are just that. Without action, ideas do not flourish and the ‘greatness’ disappears.
I’ve been banging on about “Excuses” in recent weeks/months and this is what I am getting to here again. What really stops us from taking that action, that beginning step to exercising greatness?
Maybe I’m being a bit hard. “Excuse” is a fairly in your face type word. So perhaps it’s a lack of Belief, a fear of success that’s holding us back?
If it is then you can get it ‘fixed”. Seek some help because some fears can be crippling and lack of Belief will certainly anchor you down. If you want to move forward/be better, there’s no excuse not to (get this fixed).
However if you are just finding your own reasons (I’m being kind) to thwart your progress then some serious soul searching is required. Sabotaging your own Life is inexcusable. Some excuses are as I’ve mentioned before, very subtle. Thought manipulation via lifelong conditioning. This is where it can get tricky.
To cut through this you must be aware of your thoughts. Are they ‘real’?…meaning…are they getting you to take the type of action that will allow you to grow, to expand your ‘zone’?
Examine your thoughts. Take time out, you owe it to yourself to do this. Are your very thoughts becoming excuses?….wearing you down, gently, subtely whispering to you…..”you can’t do that?…..”you are not worthy”…..”that’s too hard”…..”take it easy, there will be another time”
Weed out the poor thoughts and nurture fresh,clear thoughts…they will be your saviour. Clear thoughts lead to clear vision which will be backed up by clear action and purpose.
No more mist, clear sailing ahead.
What do you do when “the mist” descends? Do you retreat or do you try to work out a better way? I’d love to hear.
Be good to yourselves
