Lately, I’ve heard a lot about people hoping and praying. Now, I believe in the power of prayer, but I also believe that you have to do your part. You have to take active steps to create the life that you want. Because this life doesn’t owe you a thing. It’s not enough to just sit back and wait, even if you pray. Yes, miracles can happen in your life, but most of them do not just fall out of the sky.
You have to do your part. Take action. Lots of people use the P.U.S.H. method where they Pray Until Something Happens. The mistake is that if there is prayer without any action, you could be praying for a long time.
For example, you want to lose weight; you even pray about it. But unless you expect pounds to magically fall off, you must take action. Pray also for endurance, patience, dedication, stamina and perseverance. Pray for a coach, accountability and a supportive network to enable you to reach your goal. Set small goals and knock those out of the park. Those will help you build confidence for bigger goals. And be gentle with yourself. Celebrate the victories.
In your life, you are a product of all of the decisions you’ve previously made. All of the good and all of the bad and that is what makes you your amazing self. You now have the opportunity to make decisions that will shape your best future. If you love where you are, keep going and support others who aspire to be where you are (imagine if we all lifted up others as we climbed). But if you want to bring about change in your life, if you want to live your best life, take action to make it happen.
If you have the courage to take action, that courage will be rewarded. I promise you.
What’s stopping you?
