We need to break out of our hypnotic rhythm! Our stagnation, complacency, boring repetition and even laziness is robbing us of our lives. Robbing us of the very essence of dynamic focused energy.
DAYS, MONTHS, YEARS DRIFT BY BEFORE OUR VERY EYES
“Not me! I’ve had enough of watching my life dripping away, drip by drip, draining me until there is nothing left. I feel dead, even though I am breathing and walking around, I might just as well be dead and gone.”
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
Basically, get off our butts and take action. Inside of all of us is a “go-getter, a mover and shaker”. Inside of all of us is massive enthusiasm, dynamic energy that is laying dormant. Why is it laying dormant? Because we don’t give ourselves anything to be excited about, to be passionate about, to want to achieve before we die.
Firstly, we need to reignite our movers and shakers, our go-getters, and I am reaching out to you today, to help you overcome obstacles that are keeping us in stagnation, boring repetition and keeping us stuck in a mediocre life. Mediocrity brings us misery, financial anxiety, stress and keeps us “wanting”, needy and our fires have gone out. Do you agree?
HOW TO REIGNITE OUR MOVERS AND SHAKERS, OUR GO-GETTERS
Together, we have identified stagnation, complacency, boring repetition and laziness depletes our energy. To claim back our dormant movers and shakers, our go-getters we need to give our passion free rein. Do you remember moments in your lives where you felt invincible? Perhaps you hit six after six in cricket, you saved someone’s life, you won the Fairest and Best Award, your secret family recipe for a fruit cake is adored by many, you are a brilliant dog trainer, horse jumper, canary breeder etc. etc. The moments when we feel invincible have us soaring with the eagles. Agreed?
Our passions are taking us to these heights. Once we have the invincible feeling back in our lives, then we can take action and put our newfound dynamic self, our enthusiasm, vibrancy and abundant energy back into play and we feel like we can move mountains.
We have reclaimed our dormant go-getters, our movers and shakers, embraced them once more and we begin to see opportunities around us. We now have choices and can choose paths that stoke our fires and put excitement in our day.
THE NEXT STEP IS TO TAKE ACTION
When we are enthusiastic and excited about an event (music concert), a happening (wedding), a project or a hobby we are working on, we can’t wait to take action. Why, because we are so keen, ready and firing. This driving force is our passion and amazingly we ignore it most of the time.
I put this challenge to you. Look and find something we are passionate about, can’t get enough of, will skip a meal because we are so engrossed and an hour feels like five minutes when we are engaged in it.
Do you feel you have abundant energy, focus and willingly put in massive action because you enjoy it so much. Even if we are faced with an obstacle that is stopping us doing it, we will find a way around it, to make it work because we are so focused on achieving the end game.
ONE THING THAT WILL CHALLENGE US IS OVERWHELM
Overwhelm comes about because we are swamped with too many things to do and we make it worse by feeling we will never have enough time to do it all. We put ourselves under impossible pressure to get it done by ………….. Fill in the blank. This, my friends, happened to me today. I have three major projects on the go at the same time, all of which I am not familiar with, that I must get done in order to get where I am passionate about going.
I was rescued by a video I watched. Dean regularly works out at a gym and hates waking at 5am, driving several kilometers to get to the gym and once there, often has to wait in the queue to use a piece of equipment. These are all excuses that challenge him every day to give gym a miss. Guess what fires him to go? How good he feels at the end of the session: physically, mentally, health he has given to his body and that uplifted feeling of I did it!
I totally relate to the “feeling so good” once I have conquered anything I wanted to achieve. Do you? It is all about focusing on the good feeling and going through the action to get it.
In my case, where I have three fiercely challenging things going at once he suggested breaking it down to small steps. Every step achieved will bring that “great feeling” reward and give me the courage to tackle the next step. You get where I’m going with this eh?
I needed to take the “time pressure” I had imposed on myself off as well. That was easy to do. I simply accept it will take as long as it takes, I will have conquered a massive learning curve (will feel elated with myself, that “I did it feeling”) and every step will be closer to my end game. Woo Hoo!!!
These actions actually make me “Captain Of My Mind, Master Of My Soul” which is The Invictus Games Motto. Achieve this motto and we can naturally take massive action and make amazing things happen in our lives. Furthermore, this is HOW TO LOVE LIFE MORE! Let’s go to it and bring it home eh?
Great sharing with you once more and I invite you to join the conversation by sharing your experiences. This way we can help each other out and grow together.
Cheers now, Jill
