Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world. Joel A. Barker

Ready, Set, Go!
How Did I Get Here?
One of my Mum’s favourite saying was “Experience is the greatest teacher.” and I have come to validate that as truth in my life.
It is so easy to get caught up and buried while we still live. When you pause to reflect on your life, which I hope is regularly, what lessons do you learn? Can you embrace the fullness of your life and where it has brought you to? Or are there element that leave you fearful, crippled or worse yet reluctant to acknowledge their existence?
From birth through to adulthood, in environments not of our own making or choice, we are moulded. Our homes and education systems shape us and what we grow up to deem moral, acceptable, desirable and the “norm”.
We move from being born free of inhibitions with the world as our oyster to loosing ourselves in the standards and expectations of everyone but us. With our passions, purposes and potential deeply buried; armed only with a warped perception of self and what we can do, we pursue the all elusive perfection. The career, the relationship, the family, the business and the various societal measures of success.
How Long Will It Take?
After several cycles and years of chasing, we realise there is still a void that remains untouched: empty in spite of the accolades and “successes” achieved and accomplished.
For me it took hitting rock bottom: financial and emotionally with no choice but to stare depression and anxiety dead in the eye. I took a good hard look at them and at myself and made the decision that I am good, powerful and worthy enough to live this life and live it to the fullest. I took flight.
This didn’t mean that I stopped being afraid. It meant that despite being afraid and not feeling like it, I made choices and took action. Even when I was tired I did job searches; when I felt too weak, I made the time to get out of the house. I recalled the times in the past when I had pulled through and drew from the strength I had found then to see me through.
How long will it take for you to decide to feel the fear and do it anyway? What will it take for you to make the shift? What must inaction cost you before you break the moulds and confines you have been living? What needs to happen before you decide to show up fully and authentically for YOU.
