“It takes as much energy to wish, as it does to plan.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
We are problem-solving-machines. Once we get started, it’s like we kick into gear. Sometimes, it even surprises us how naturally and seamlessly we work through the issue. Turns out we just need to transition that energy from the “wishing” phase, and into the “action” phase.
Ever have a hard time starting to clean the house? The “trick” everyone knows, is to just start. We could stress over it all morning, where we can actually feel the energy being sapped from us, despite the lack of anything being done. Or, we can take that energy and just start.. And as we do, we snap into motion and things start flowing.
Wishing, hoping, wanting… they do nothing. Planning, action, and the demanding of ourselves to create the “how” makes change.
Let’s reinforce it in our minds – we weren’t made to “wish”. We were made to act.
