Awareness is the key to a fulfilled and fully-expressed life. But if you don’t know that, you’ll be destined to a life of mediocrity.
OK, maybe that’s a little harsh. But isn’t there a little truth to that statement? While ignorance may be bliss for a while, there must come a point at which the root of the word ignorance – IGNORE – draws your attention, doesn’t it? We are creative humans who are born to learn and grow and expand. If we go against that, we are actually going against our human nature.
So becoming aware of and knowing what we want and then minding the gap between where we are and where we say we want to be should be relatively simple to figure out, shouldn’t it?
Knowing something and doing it are two completely separate things. And if you have all the ideas in the world but don’t try one … or two … or ten … you shouldn’t be surprised when nothing changes on the outside for you.
Most of us know what to do to achieve our goals. If you’re in sales, it’s to make calls. If you want to lose weight, it’s diet and exercise. If it’s saving money, it’s to spend less than you make. If it’s a relationship, be the person to whom the person you are interested in will be attracted. None of this is rocket science.
So … why the gap between what we know and what we do? Isn’t that the eternal question? It’s all about awareness coupled with action that takes advantage of your strengths and gifts and commitments that’s taken over time, not overnight.
Please take action that enhances your strengths. Stop ripping the world off by not living into your capacity and doing what you know. Tomorrow is guaranteed to no one. If you don’t do what you were created to do, no one will. No one else can.
What will it take for you to live into your greatness NOW?
