Monday Mottoes – #75

??????????????????Have you ever had doubts about a situation, or about yourself? Doubt lifts its head and questions you, trying to poke holes in your confidence.

You may wonder if your industry will be downsizing in the near future, or if your mate is as committed to you as you once thought, or if your children are on the straight-and-narrow. Will your kids be able to afford college, can you pay your mortgage this month, or ever even one day get a mortgage? What if a catastrophic disease hits and you have no healthcare, now that costs have risen rather than diminished? What if you don’t pass your exams? What if your pet begins to age and have problems?th What if your home is burglarized while you’re away… or maybe worse, while you’re at home?

These are the big and little worries that can keep one up at night. Which brings us to today’s motto:

“If doubt is challenging you and you do not act, doubts will grow. Challenge the doubts with action and you will grow. Doubt and action are incompatible.” ~John Kanary

Think about it: what action can you take today that would help to alleviate some of these fears? Can you start taking care of your health by eating right and exercising 4-5 times per week? Can you save some money, even if only a little, every single week to build a GamePlan1mini-nest egg or cushion of cash? Perhaps you could study for tests by getting on a set schedule and spreading it out as much as possible? Might be possible to invest more time in your children to impart your values even more?

Being a person of action empowers you. No longer will you sit on the sidelines and bemoan what is, or what might have been. When friends and family gather to comfort you, you use the new-found strength to form an action plan. After all, we generally are able to bite our nails from worry when our hands are slack from inaction.

On the heels of the Super Bowl, figure out your own game plan. Pray about it. Write it down. Doesn’t have to be Self-Beliefanything elaborate, can be as simple as 1, 2, 3.

And then take action. Do it, don’t talk about it! The more action you take, the further along you’ll be, so take massive action. Change everything if you’re tired of slow and steady. We’re talking paradigm shift and transformation.

Bulldoze right over those doubts and keep steaming ahead.

Happy Monday, everyone!
