I am taking massive action in my life right now. Massive. Action. Why? Because I have struck an inner cord that can no longer be ignored. I have found a deeper purpose in my goal and I’m ready to step up and take on the responsibility of bringing it to the world. It’s every emotion, every feeling all at once (ranging from terrified to exuberant) and I love it.
The action I am taking is building my own business. This requires action of ALL descriptions – major commitments, baby steps and everything in between. You want to know what’s funny about all of this? I have been capable of taking this action for a long time. (eh-hem… about 15 years). So why didn’t I take action before? I was capable of doing everything I am doing now back then, and yet, my butt stayed firmly planted in its seat.
I made the decision to believe that this is my time. I made the decision to truly connect to the purpose of this life goal and allow it to shout as loudly as it wants. Previously, I would give it a platform here and there but generally insisted it maintained an inside voice at all times. Not anymore; it’s open mic in the dreams department and right now I’m not singing my karaoke go-to, Gangsta’s Paradise, I’m belting Bridget’s Greatest Hits or Hits-To-Be, as it were.
Your mind is a powerful tool. It’s capable of keeping you in your safe space with limiting beliefs and thought gremlins and also lifting you up beyond what you ever thought was possible into the realm of the unknown. And the best part about this? You get to choose which one you prefer. That’s right, you make that choice every single day. Yeah, we have that kind of power.
So here are my two cents. We are all capable of massive action. It can show up in different ways for different scenarios or people but you know it when you feel it. Pro Tip: Don’t be thrown off by the work “MASSIVE”. The effort or time required to perform the task is not relevant, it’s the impact it has on moving you towards your goal! Small but mighty definitely has a pony in this race.
The real question is, if you aren’t taking massive action right now, why not? Here are 5 quick questions you can ask yourself to start exploring how to take massive action now:
1. What is it that you want to achieve? Give that goal a name.
2. What specifically is the first thing you need to do in order to achieve that thing?
3. Why is it important that you achieve that thing? (VERY IMPORTANT – don’t skip this step!)
4. How will you know that you have achieved it? (make it measurable)
5. What do you need to address or resolve in order to take the first step?
If you are having trouble answering these questions or getting stuck on 1 or 2 of them, don’t give up. This can be a journey.
