Morning Coach has been doing a series this week on Belief. For those of you who aren't familiar with Morning Coach, JB Glossinger is the creator of the Personal Evolution system in which he helps you to improve your life a little bit each day via regular podcasts and workbooks to help you manifest the life you desire. I've been listening for a long time now... a year and a half or so! And I love getting that positive boost of energy each morning as I ride to work.
But as I said, this week's topic has been belief, and the power of belief. Belief that we can achieve the things we want is key to getting them. I think that's a pretty simple concept: if you don't believe you can achieve something, well, then, you're right. But you can make yourself believe them and not limit yourself by your beliefs.
But today, the specific belief-related topic was Action. JB pointed out that many people believe you can manifest your dreams simply by having great enough belief. But, and I agree with him here, he believes that creating great belief means nothing if you don't take action on those things. I've been a believer that I can achieve great things my whole life - but where I've fallen down on many occasions is taking action.
My motto, that I got from Matt Furey, is "Beginning is Half-Done." Just making a start on your belief-driven goals is a fantastic way to start. How many times do you find that if you just get off the couch and do some pushups that you find yourself doing your whole workout, even though you are really tired? How many times have you just bitten the bullet and made that uncomfortable phone call, and gotten that nagging issue out of the way? Taking action on your beliefs creates results.
And by taking action often, you build your "action muscles" up to a point where you feel restless if you're NOT taking action. You feel great when you start on a project and want those feelings to continue. One challenge I frequently have when working out, for example, is giving myself enough rest between workouts. I feel so great doing them that I have a hard time letting my body have time to recover!
So pick an item in your life - one that's been nagging at you for a while, and take that first action on it today. See where it takes you, and most important see how you feel after you're done doing it. I bet you'll feel great, accomplished, relieved, and most importantly energized to take more actions.
