Begin taking bold action.
The action itself is not what we fear – it is our thoughts that are restraining. Break #free from those thoughts and move towards action. Soon enough, small steps will become the equivalent of a giant leap toward the creative, the passionate, the driven, and the anew. Use these four steps to aid yourself in the process of revitalization.
1. Ask yourself tough questions. What is the cost of inaction? Create a "why not?" list and ask yourself if the benefits outweigh these negative thoughts. Think about the consequences of the status quo internally and externally.
2. Accept rational accountability. Decide to change your inaction and make yourself accountable for both your actions and inaction. I grew up learning that there are actions of commission and acts of omission. We are equally responsible for what we do and don't do.
3. Follow your own advice. If a friend were in the same scenario, what advice would you give him or her? Taking a step back from the problem or scenario might help you gain objectivity. Sometimes being too entrenched can cloud our judgment.
4. Always listen to your intuition. Do a gut check and gauge what the heart and mind can't. Remember that this requires little thinking... What's your first reaction? How do you viscerally respond to what's going on? If you have strong feelings, listen to them.
The bold action that you take doesn't have to be anything grandiose; it can merely be a step away from ambivalence and inactivity. We may not always get our decisions "right," but there is something both beautiful and powerful about taking action. What are you waiting for?
