It takes more energy to get something moving than it does to keep something moving.
This was a major aha for me when I heard this statement. It explained to me why so many times I didn’t do what I knew needed to be done to make the changes that I wanted to make and to have those changes stick! And I’m sure I’m not the only mom out there who felt like I was lacking the energy to make change. I really wanted to but there was always some excuse, some reason, some complaint or something else that would hinder my movement or stop it altogether.
After I reached the end of my rope yet again I realized that I kept ending up in the same place because I hadn’t learned my lesson yet…but what was the lesson? It didn’t take me long to figure out that I wasn’t actually doing the work and taking the steps that I knew needed to be taken. I was so focused on being the mom I wanted to be that the consistent doing didn’t get done. I was busy being busy doing all kinds of other stuff but not the inspired actions that would actually propel me forward.
I had been standing behind my own vision, visualizing it, trying to feel it, and wondering how it would come to fruition but I hadn’t actually done anything to move that vision into motion.
Another thing I have heard before is that the Universe likes speed. It’s true! I know it for a fact now because as soon as I took the first step forward towards my vision and created a tiny bit of momentum with it, another potential step materialized. I went for it and more momentum was created. More steps popped up and some I talked myself out of but many I followed. I still don’t know a lot of the how but what I realized is that by taking little steps I have now created a movement that is sustainable and it’s easier for me to keep it going.
The good news is I don’t have to know that how. So far I’ve had the right mentors and the right information show up for me to take me to the next step so that I can make my vision of helping women to love themselves, not less, out there in a big way. I’m really excited to watch all this unfold and see how it’s going to come together.
I do have a plan and I’m doing the work but I’m careful not to get busy being busy doing stuff that doesn’t matter. I am doing the stuff that I know pushes that vision forward every day. And that’s enough for now.
