The Truth About Taking “Action”
By Dr. Robert Anthony
Most people have the misconception that you get what you want in life by the actions you take – by what you DO – that the DOING (the action part) is what makes things happen. This is false. In fact, if you analyze it, most people’s actions are spent trying to compensate for inappropriate creating.
What do I mean by that? We have been programmed to believe that in order to have what we want we must work “hard”. How many times have you heard – “No pain, no gain?” The implication is that if you want to be successful at anything, you must work hard. The message is clear – ‘if you are not suffering or struggling, you’re not making progress.’
But here is the truth – anytime you are suffering or struggling, you are mis-creating! Anytime you struggle or feel pain, you are attracting what you don’t want, rather than what you do want. Please read it again!
Why do we try to force things to happen when we don’t have to? One of the primary reasons is that a lot of us come from families who have had to struggle to succeed or survive. We have programmed since childhood that struggle is ‘normal’ and ‘that’s the way life works’. So we expect to struggle and work hard to get what we want.
Another reason the “work hard” notion seems logical is because we all know people who have worked hard to achieve success and we attribute their success to their hard work.
On the surface this makes sense until you realize that there are two ways to succeed at anything – the hard way or the easy way.
Now, I am not saying that taking action is not important or necessary, but most of our actions are spent putting out brush fires that we have created along the way, so we have to keep taking action to correct our mistakes.
What we don’t understand is that if we have better control over our minds, we don’t have to DO nearly as much to get the same results. In fact, most of our actions would be only a small percentage of what they are now. Things would flow more easily and without effort. The actions we do take would be more effective, with less strain and effort.
Keep Reading for the Secret to Effortless Action…
Here is the secret. You can reduce the need for action to a minimum by allowing yourself to focus on what you desire until you feel the positive energy begin to move within you. Trust me, if you will do this, you will know when it is time to take action. And when you do, it will be effortless. Doors will open and the entire universe will conspire to assist you in your desire.
Simply put, you should take no action on anything until you have visualized your desire and made it real enough in your mind so that your next action, or the next step – whatever it is, is not out of fear or worry. Whatever action step you take feels “right”. There is not stress, strain or struggle.
The point I am trying to make is that most of the actions that people take are not in harmony with their true desires. Most people act out of doubt, fear, and worry. They are using action to compensate for inappropriate creating. However, when you use the process of deliberate creation – which means you focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want, you will see that the universe will provide a different set of circumstances for you that requires much less action. It makes life so much easier and a lot more fun!
|Quick Tip||Look Who’s Talking…|
|Not sure if you should take action? Use this quick check in to understand if the action you are thinking of taking is inspired or forced. Ask yourself this Power Question:“If I take this action, WHY will I be taking it?”To put it simply, if you realize that your WHY is something to the effect of “Because it feels right.” Or “Because it feels exciting.” Or “Because it feels FUN.” THAT is inspired action.IF (however) you realize your WHY is motivated by fear, doubt, worry or an attempt to FIX – then it is forced action.
Knowing the difference makes all the difference!
