If you are a business owner or leader, are you not just taking action, but ‘inspired action’? This means that you are working off of your ideas and what gets you out of bed each day to drive me to achieve them. This is born of your ‘Why’ – and your desire to help your clients, and potential clients to achieve their goals by abolishing any fears or other roadblocks that prevent them from going out and doing their best work.
We all suffer from these so-called roadblocks, such as fear of failure, perfectionism, imposter syndrome, or lack of self-confidence or esteem; but how one looks at these blockages can either keep you stuck or spur you to knock them out of the way.
Using your inspirations – or what is truly important – as a motivator will elicit deep positive emotions so that you will create the actions and the outcomes you desire; you will be unstoppable until you get them. It will feel effortless and you may find yourself jumping out-of-bed to face the day, as opposed to dreading it.
To find inspired action, here are 3 ideas that can help you get there:
- acknowledge your ‘why’ – what gets you out of bed every day? what is your message that you need to get out to the world? who are you meant to help and serve?
- write down who or what gives you inspiration – this can be a family member or friend, a famous person or thought-leader, someone who has lived through adversity and came through with strength and grace, a spiritual influence, or an idea you’ve held onto with conviction
- make the inspiration as visual as you can, whether that is with a picture, a talisman, a vision board, or a picture you keep in your mind; this will keep it ‘real’ while reinforcing your intent to achieve the outcome
Being decisive in your thoughts and activities will help you accomplish anything you want to do – doing it with inspired action will help you get them faster. You will find it more fulfilling and you will get more done.
Your Weekly Action Plan
This week, take time to really think about your inspirations – you don’t have to have just one. Pay attention to the emotions that arise when you think about them; write them down and then find ways to visually represent them. Keep them with you at all times and see how much more decisive you are as you go about your day, noting how much more you get done and how accomplished you feel. Doing this daily will be uplifting and you’ll realize you can accomplish anything you desire.
