We Become By Doing
There are a lot of teachings around promoting the power of intention, and whilst intention is all well and good, without action it is meaningless.
And if there's anything that I've learnt through the hundreds conversations I have every year with clients and friends, is that the greatest cause of discontent is having too many open doors or intentions.
So the solution is simple, start walking.
Always wanted to be an author? Write a book plan. Guess what, you've just gone from intending to write a book, to becoming a person who is writing a book. Congratulations!
Wanna be an expert in your field?
Pioneer a project.
Wanna get fit? Go for a run. But now, you need to do it now. You need to do it today, and you need to do it tomorrow, and you need to do it the day after tomorrow too.
You don't have to be an expert runner today, and you don't have to run far. You don't have to win a nobel prize for your first research project, or a Pulitzer for your novel. But you do need to reach for that door handle and you do need to step across the hearth. Because walking that hallway will lead you to another, and another and another.
And behind each new door is a new opportunity to expand, to experience and to evolve. And what are we here for if not to evolve.
So start small, or start large, it really doesn't matter. What matters is simply that you *start*. #intentions #actions #bydoing #evolve #change #juststart #consciousness
