Wanna know something I learned this year?
Inspiration doesn't come alone.
The inspired idea, solution, steps, means, title, project, book (you get the idea) comes with a built-in impetus (a driving force to make something happen). Small word. BIG energy.
You feel like you could move mountains.
It seems like anything and everything is possible.
When you act on inspiration you are harnessing energy already IN motion.
Hey, you've got the idea AND you've got the energy. Take action. Any step. One small step. One large leap. A series of jumps. Dip your toe in. It doesn't matter. Just get started.
Action begets action. One step leads to another. Energy in motion snowballs.
Did I mention taking inspired action is SO much easier than taking forced action (uninspired action)? That's action you take when you are trying to make something happen. That's when I feel the FULL weight of trying to move those mountains.
No more striving, forcing or trying for me.
I've let go of that story. The illusion that if I only try hard enough I can make 'it' (whatever form 'it' takes) happen. I am SO done with that repeating loop.
I TRUST the inspiration. I FLOW with the energy.
Without action, inspiration is like a beautiful glossy soap bubble that pops. A great joke without a punchline that falls flat. A heavenly fresh baked loaf of bread that goes stale. A souped up battery that has expired.
I've let enough inspiration bubbles expire. I'm ready to move mountains.
How about you?
PS - Has your bubble of inspiration already burst? Your juicy idea shrivelled up? Stay tuned for a post on how to receive more inspiration.
PPS - It's almost Christmas - I'm so excited! I want to share a gift with you.
Please join me on Saturday (December 17th) @ 4 pm EDT for a Facebook Live Q&A!
I thought it would be fun to connect and share with you some of the goodies I learned during my (almost) year long sabbatical. Ask questions. Come reflect on what YOU'VE learned and let go of in 2016. Book off the hour now. I promise you it will be time well spent.
PPPS - For those of you who've been wondering, I'll also share what's behind the shift from my animal practice to a people based practice.
