Take a Bold Action

We often confuse bold with big when we think of taking action. Sometimes a bold action is simply taking a step in the direction of the very thing we’ve been resisting. Each small step moves us closer to our goal. I have been thinking about small steps for awhile now and have come to realize that we don’t often value small steps. We think of things in terms of the grand gesture or the big outcome. Bold actions can be the simple act of taking one step and then another step and then another step. It might mean asking yourself this question, “What one action can I take today that will lead me closer to my goal?”

In terms of Life Energies, those of you who have Workability energy know how to get from point A to point Z and also know the steps in between to get you there. It appears that you are not overwhelmed by the number of steps. Those of us who have low Workability often get overwhelmed by the quantity of steps to get us where we are going. We forget to chunk those steps into manageable portions. It’s kind of like using a flashlight in the dark. You can’t see really far down the path, but you can see the path right in front of you. And, as you keep moving you see another part of the path, then another part of the path, (chunk by chunk) leading you closer to your final destination.

So, back to taking a bold action. Bold actions are those small steps that you might have been resisting. Bold actions are those steps that have seemed elusive and yet you know in your heart of hearts that they are the next steps to take. Bold actions are taking those steps that you have been afraid of. Bold actions are saying you will do something and actually doing it. Bold actions are committing to small steps that over time will help you build momentum. When you set a manageable action step you can complete it, then take the next step and complete that. What you are teaching yourself is that you are count-on-able; that you can count on yourself to do what you say.

PS The picture above is one of a bold action I took. Those are the pieces of my desk when I took it out of the box. I put it together step by step and now have a beautiful place to work!
