“Talk is cheap. Actions speak.” — Robin S. Sharma
Not only does talking to others about idea’s your ‘going to do’ knock the wind out of your sails, talking to yourself about what you are going to do can create the same results.
We all want to take a dream and make it reality (At least I think we do…).
But more often than not we only paint a picture of that dream with our words, eliciting the feelings of accomplishment, without actually doing it.
Just as projects creep on ad infinite without external or internal deadlines, and New Year’s resolutions soon become next year’s resolutions, having the desire and vision is lost without the action to back it up.
How often have I thought myself into NOT doing something?
Be that from fear, hesitation, lack of motivation or willpower in the moment…
For me it’s been happening more frequently than I would like to admit. I run the same old thoughts of things I’m going to do, should do, want to do, over and over again, looping them so much I overwhelm myself into doing nothing at all.
Sometimes, the only course of action is to move without thinking, to let your mind trail your thoughts.
Of course, this could leave you vulnerable to bad choices, but acting first, speaking second is only the beginner level. The goal is to synchronize your thoughts and movements, like ballroom dancing, to the point where you’re acting and thinking at the same time, and reacting with decisions that reflect who you are and the meaningful life you want to live.
Blah blah blah. Basically with that entire last few sentences I’m trying to explain that sometimes you need to run before you walk.
Sometimes you need to run before you walk
Not forever, in an unsustainable way, but as a solution — a relief even — to constantly thinking ourselves into a corner of never doing anything we want to do.
