An idea forms, the next thing is, does it spark enough to create an action?…
Well the single idea of , ‘a place to start’, did create an action, as you can plainly see, a result of that simple idea is here, looking right back at you.
However, no matter how static it may appear right now, as a single webpage within a website on the ‘internet’, wasn’t how it first started off!
The initial trajectory of the idea once it was formed was rather like that of a firework rocket…it careered ‘all over the place’ not looking at to where it was going, not really much caring if it landed at all, it also seemingly kept hitting invisible walls and glanced off them and went fizzing off to here…there…everywhere until finally arriving and landing right back from it was born!
Many people I suspect have lots of ideas that seem to go through the same ‘hopeless never ending journey’ as my idea has gone through?
Many others I too suspect are more than prepared for such an idea will take control almost from conception…they just ‘do it’, the ‘doing it’ being what needs to be done, firstly, holding on to it long enough, by initially writing it down and forming a ways and means of how best to make it useful that may make their lives easier…in short, they take control, set out a destination and how to arrive there in one piece!
They create circumstance in their lives so that their lives improve rather than allow circumstance to control them and therefore create a life that they have little or no control over!
‘A Place to Start’ (with my name above it) maybe static but I can assure you, to create this ‘space’ has taken action, lots of it. And it’s here where I’m hoping that some of you will come back to and go on from to create the circumstances that you need to improve your lives…
If you’ve no idea of how to go about changing things in your lives then I have ideas and ways for that…I have plenty to keep me and you going for a very long time…if you’ve got a ‘fair’ idea of want you want to go onto and where you want to be then hopefully you’ll be able to remove the ‘vagueness’ and replace it with more ‘certainty’.
If you’ve already set out from a place of starting and want ideas to help you to continue with your journey then it is hopefully here where you’ll find the resources you need…
No matter who you are, whether you were even thinking of having ‘A Place to Start’ from or not or whether you are well on your way, this is a place for you…
You’ll find here lots of ideas of where you can go looking for ‘ideas’…but having the ‘idea’ is one thing, acting on it is quite another and to KEEP on Keeping on is altogether a different proposition entirely.
No matter what you may read or have read elsewhere, you are going to have TO DO something each and everyday until you arrive at your chosen destination and at times you are going to need the fuel that is ‘MOTIVATION’.
Yes, you can progress by one step at a time, but what many don’t tell you of are the steps within the steps that you’ll take too.
The boring, the methodical, the downright brain deadening chores that the dream makers don’t tell you about…some fail part way through step one, some fail on realising step has actually 20 steps, and then step 2 isn’t quite as easy as is being made out and ultimately lots of people fail their dreams because of….fear.
Not that many people will give up once they have started their journey due to learning new stuff or having to put in more hours than they originally thought they would … most people stop and let it all slide away and peter out because of ‘fear’.
Fear of not being ‘good enough’, brought on by a fear of not being able to achieve their goals through a lack of self belief or simply by thinking they are not remotely clever enough in the first place…plus…the destination, the end point, may NOT be what they imagined it to be from when they first let the idea take it’s first hold…success can be an overwhelming fear in itself and hard to deal with…
So…to overcome all of these fears requires heaps of reading material right? Part with lots of hard earned money to read this book that book? Time to be spent to friendly psychologist who charges you a fortune just to talk to?
Well…you could read for the next two or three years spend all the money you have and more on courses that may or may not help you, or you can…
Say to yourself,
That you fear nothing.
Look, to get where you are today, here at this screen reading what I’ve written, you have done all the fearing before? You didn’t KNOW how to write? You didn’t KNOW how to add up? You didn’t KNOW all the people you know now at the moment you were born? You didn’t KNOW an awful lot and must have felt fearful at some point or another, but…you are here? STILL here?
What’s fear? You run away from it and change nothing or fight against it, as you have already done, and IMPROVE your life by taking control of an idea and changing the circumstances that you find yourself in today.
Flee, click away, or…stay?
