Make something happen…
Too often when it comes to our life, it is easy to get into a more passive mode. We keep waiting for the right opportunity to come along. We are waiting for the right job or raise. We are waiting for the right relationship to come along. We are waiting for our lucky break. We are waiting until we have more money before we take action. Waiting, waiting and more waiting!
Now, it’s true there are many times we do have to wait. We have to wait in a line, wait in traffic, wait at an appointment, wait for a repair person etc. etc. Personally I am not a fan of waiting a long time in a line or in traffic etc. So, we can’t always avoid waiting. However, when it comes to our careers, life direction or changing our life, passivity or waiting may not be such a good plan. In fact, procrastinating and not moving may actually cause your life to move backwards instead of forward.
When it comes to changing your life, the quality of your life, the ball is in your court. You are responsible for your life and your choices. When you fully realize that your life is going to change! If you are waiting for someone else to do it for you, move you or make something happen for you, you may be waiting a long time and you may even be shutting down opportunities.
The best plan for your life is to get off the fence and sidelines of your own life and take action. One step leads you to the next and is one step closer to your goal. It is really hard to move a parked car, but once it is moving, it can be steered in the right direction. What if there are all these amazing connections and opportunities waiting for you? What if God is waiting on you to co-labor with Him on this exciting journey called life, but He is waiting on you to take a step or move? You probably won’t get guidance and light for the next step until you take the first step. You won’t make connections that could catapult your life forward until you step out and try to make some connections.
Want to live a great life? Take action. Do something today that is going to move your life forwards in some way. What if it doesn’t work? What if it does? More importantly you will learn what does work and you will be one step closer to the changes you are looking for. In other words, make something happen.
