That is exactly what Fear does. It strips you of being able to see any possibilities for greatness. It blinds you from the opportunities to dip your hands and hearts into the waters and cleanse the grim away. It freezes you from taking action.
Inaction is a guaranteed fast pass to the front of the line of never-ending despair.
I don't know about you, but I don't want to go there.
I wrote these words on the LIGHTbeamers Facebook fan page this week and they apparently struck a cord.
Living is about setting big bold goals. Shining is having the courage to speak out loud your dreams. You will light your heart on fire when you tap into that "thing" that is your own personal light. And when your heart is on fire, it burns for others. It lifts others up. It comforts the weak and broken.
My journal entries look like a bomb of emotions and creative ideas have exploded. Re-reading some of my personal thoughts recently, I stumbled upon something I wrote months ago -- in a burst of creativity, I scribbled out a 7 step strategy for de-cluttering your mind & energy so you can step forward into your LIGHT and shine brighter for yourself, and others.
My ideas were so simple. So doable. Cheap & easy in fact. So much so that at the time I wrote them, I easily dismissed them as too mundane. Too simple. Too easy. Not worth sharing. But looking back on that journal entry, it struck me "That's all it really freaking takes!... Others need this. What an impact we could make if we just did these 7 simple things."
Do you want to Take Action and have an Impact? Or do you plan to continue to watch Fox News and CNN nonstop to further feed your fears? Be in the camp of folks who feed the world some goodness. Join me in the #shinebright movement.
