First of all if you are a person that doesn’t like to take responsibility for your life and move forward, do yourself a favor and skip this post. You will not like it.
“The right man is the one who seizes the moment.”~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I love the quote above. Mostly because it is a more dignified way of saying “you snooze, you lose.” No action, no results, not rocket science is it? So then why do so many people fail to move?
Take a day and think about all your encounters throughout the day. How much time are you spending discussing and/or planning? How much time are you spending acting and moving forward? Are you propelling yourself forward daily or are you talking about propelling yourself forward? Do you find you are more comfortable around those who are more talk oriented and less action oriented? Or do you actively seek out people and situations that increase your growth and expansion?
I am not saying one way is right and one way is wrong. What I am conveying however is that if you are a talker and not a mover do not be shocked when nothing changes. And as we no longer live in a static world, do not be shocked when you realize the failure to move forward has actually moved you backward. Like our Moms use to say “in or out” while we were standing in the doorway. Are you staying in or are you forging forward?
