The cost of doing nothingDec 11, 2021
🙌“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy”. Dale Carnegie
💥This quote was powerful for me because I think many of us sit in constant inaction.
💥What do I mean by that? I mean, we have great intentions, we have great plans, we want to set goals, we even dream about how things could be different for us, and then WE DO NOTHING.
💥When we live in this constant state of inaction we lose our courage to move forward and make the changes we desire.
💥We start doubting that we could really ever change, after all, “it’s just the way I am”, “It’s what I’ve always done”, “you can’t teach an old dog, new tricks”....you know, all the things you say to yourself when you succumb to fear and doubt and decide to stay the same.
💥When we think that we are unchangeable “just the way we are” and we are not content in our hearts with the life we’ve created, we are creating a problem for our brain.
💥You see, if you feel unsatisfied in your life or job, bored to death with your life, sick of groundhog day repeating itself over and over again, or you just feel like something is missing, this is your brain alerting you that your values/goals (what you want and desire) and not matching what you actually are doing (because it’s just the way you are….); it creates what neuroscientists call cognitive dissonance in your brain.
💥Living in this inaction leads you to say the same things to yourself over and over again, leading to you waking up every day and dreading the day before you, instead of jumping out of bed with excitement and anticipation.
💥The cost of living your life in this state is stress, anxiety, and all the symptoms and effects that come on the body and mind.
🙌Are you ready to make changes that stick because they are based on scientific evidence of how the brain works?
🙌If so, I can help. If we work together you would no longer have to wake up every day with regrets, but instead, look at life as one big opportunity.
