Just Do It

How many times have you said to yourself or someone that you care about “for Pete’s sake stop talking about it and just do it?” Or how many times have you beat yourself up because you have been planning to do something for days, weeks, or even months or years and you just never quite get to it?

There is always a perfectly good excuse to put off the things you tell yourself that you will get to someday.

What is stopping you?

What is it that keeps us from saying the things we want to say and doing the things we want to do? Thinking about a thing is not the same as doing it although sometimes we can trick our minds into thinking that we are doing something by telling ourselves tomorrow, next year, next time --- and relaxing into the certainty that you will be doing something soon.

What stops you from taking some action?

You can take control of your life and be all that you want to be. Much depends on your attitude, your habits and your desire. Do you look at life as a problem or as an adventure? Do you have habits that sabotage your best efforts? Do you see yourself as a victim or do you see yourself as a survivor? Do you automatically harbor negative thoughts and pessimistically see your troubles as burdens? Or do you optimistically see your problems as challenges to be conquered? Are you faithful? Are your accomplishments all that you are capable of? Do you dwell on past failures? Do you have dreams for your future? Are you numbing yourself with alcohol or drugs including anti-depressants, sleeping medications or some other compulsion?

Take a really good look at yourself. Look to see what is stopping you from controlling your life. For help with this contact Evelyn and also continue to read the next blog “Just Do It - Part 2..."
