Smile, It’s Monday: Your Weekly Wake-up Call to Live the Life You Have Imagined

While thoughts about moving forward yield thoughts about moving forward,
moving forward yields forward movement
--- Anthony Silard 

There are many people who dream, many people who act, and few who do both.

The greatest benefit you reap when you take action is that you come to see yourself as a person who takes action.

You replace the self-image of someone who sits around and never gets anything done with that of someone who acts authentically, boldly embraces change, and does what it takes to transform their dreams into reality.

Here’s a simple truth: There is no rehearsal for life. Your life is the rehearsal. Your preparation for the big day is the big day.

With this way of thinking in mind, recognize when you are over-thinking and instead take action and move forward in your life.

Go work out once this week. Give away some of your money to a worthy cause. Write the first page or two of that screenplay. Attend a new social event even if it’s initially out of your comfort zone. 

Do a bit—whatever you can—and experience how it feels. Then do some more.

The indelible experience of a single connection with another human being will do more than volumes of books and all the theories in the world to provide your deepest wisdom, passion, and conviction in life.

This week, gently push mental meandering aside and take a bold step toward an important goal.
