The missing link between your current reality and your dream goal - ACTION.
But not any kind of action and certainly, from experience, not necessarily *big action*. You can read, learn, educate yourself, think, visualise, desire, manifest, talk to angels (or whatever it is that you do) all you want, but unless you take action in the direction of your desired end result, you are unlikely to create what you want.
Part of the issue is that The Secret and the likes only give us the dreaming part of the equation, but not the system that will take us there. Or take the Low of Attraction - it’s not that it doesn’t work, but people often misunderstand the action part of it.
Second issue is the type of action required. Big, bold, pushing actions won’t work for everyone as what’s usually missing there is the inspiration, truth, adjustment & flow as we move through the creative process. This is the feminine, intuitive energy (not the same as feminine sex). It’s very easy to get off track when we follow a structure of rigidity that doesn’t allow for nuances and new energy to be incorporated into the process.
Assuming we have the above figured out, action has to be taken. And that includes not doing anything sometimes until it is clear what are next step is.
I see so much wishing and waiting happening when it comes to health and wellness. Reading the book is great. Taking the course is great. Working with a coach is great. Buying the right kitchen and fitness equipment is great. Buying a gym pass is great. Going on a retreat is great. Setting a clear goal is great. Writing a vision statement is also great.
But unless we do the work, consistently, nothing will change. And once the initial excitement and novelty wear off, we won’t always feel like doing work. Doing the work won’t always come easy and produce immediate results. Doing the work is not glamorous.
The coach (or any other form of help) is in the instructor’s seat to guide us, help us, support us, cheer us.
We are are the ones driving the car.
