So for some time now you have wanted to improve your life with “personal growth”, that catch-all phrase to somehow ‘be better’, ‘feel better’, ‘do better’. Or to start, grow or improve your business.
If you are anything like me, you love information, to learn, to study, you love books and anything else that can teach you what you want/need to know. I could be a professional student! The other side of that coin is that I and those like me can become stuck in Analysis Paralysis. We are so focused on learning, researching what we need to know to improve ourselves and/or our career that we forget to put it into ACTION. And then we wonder why nothing changes. Or things are going far too slowly.
Light Bulb moment coming…… without ACTION there is no attraction! If you take care of the action, the attraction will always take care of itself. You think you are in action with all your research when in fact, what you are ‘into’ is “preparation syndrome”. It’s a kind of avoidance, it helps you hide behind the fear that is lurking in the background. The ‘what if I fail’ or ‘what if I succeed’ fear. Or the ‘maybe I’m not good enough’ or ‘what will others think’ fear.
Time to lock that junk in the trunk and find the motivation that will propel you into real action. That is your sole (soul) responsibility, because if you are looking for someone else to motivate you, it won’t happen. What you can do is put yourself into certain circumstances or environments wherein you can find your own motivation.
As an illustration, think of a time when you tried to motivate someone. How difficult it is to ‘motivate’ your child! Rather than cajoling, giving orders or downright threats, a parent could spend daily, 30 minute, one on one time with their four-year old playing a game, going for a walk, interacting, (not watching TV) and doing something that is of interest to her. Within a very short time parent will experience how much more cooperative he is.
The wise parent has provided an environment for their child to be motivated (want) to do the things or behave in the ways asked of him.
This is what the Universe (your parent) does for you. It provides an environment through the Law of Attraction wherein you can feel your own motivation. Just look at the word “motivation”. The root word is ‘motion’.
By now you know the Law of Attraction works. You’ve learned that what you focus on you attract, both positive and negative. You’ve watched “The Secret”, read the book, listened to other teachers. You have done as instructed and written daily goals, and created your Vision Board. That’s the learning/study part. You are now inspired (root word ‘in sprit’)!
For some, this is the analysis paralysis point. You think that by studying more, reading more, buying more courses, attending more workshops and spending all your time with endless preparation, you will achieve your goals. You think you are in action and in some ways you are, but not in the way you need to be.
Let’s say one of your written goals is to own a brand new luxury Hybrid car (because, of course, you want to do your part to improve the environment!). So you study Hybrid technology, you work out gas mileages for trips, and work out all the reasons why you should own a Hybrid car, when what you really need to be doing is the how to own a Hybrid car. What are the first steps?
You choose a brand of Hybrid car. You go down to the dealer. You drive the car. You have your picture taken with the car (and put it on your Vision Board!). You talk to the salesperson about prices, colours, options. Action steps! Now the Universe is really perking up. The attraction vibes are resonating!
It’s the same with starting a new career or business. At some point you must get out of the preparation stage and go into action. Graduate from school.
You know what you want, you’ve meditated on (studied) it, you have visualized it with written goals, vision boards and pictures in your mind. Now it’s time to take definite action.
Do not worry if you’re unsure of what action you need to take, by staying focused on what it is you want to attract, the action you need to take will come to you. Be aware, keep your antennae up. It may come as an inspired thought, a “Bingo!” moment or a moment of clarity at an unexpected time such as driving your car, or through something a person said. The way it comes is not important. Trust that the answer will come.
So do something, anything to move you toward your goal(s). Definite action, when applied toward your goal, manifests miracles through the Law of Attraction. One of the greatest mistakes is to over-analyze whether you are doing the right thing, or you don’t know enough or you are not prepared enough.
Start with baby steps, what you think to be right. As you go into action, things will occur to guide you towards the end result. Stay aware, look for them, recognize them.
