Inspiration is everywhere. Have you noticed that? Whether we are being inspired to create a beautiful home, or new delicious recipes that will wow your family and friends, or outfit inspirations, we are literally inundated with inspiration and ideas that are meant to move us to action.
Pinterest is a dreamers haven. But I have also found it is the place where dreams go to die.
Because being inspired is not the same as action. Honestly, it is easy to be inspired. Dare I say, it is even easy to be motivated.
Action, on the other hand, is harder. Because that means you have to make a decision to move or do something based on what you have seen.
If what you saw inspired you enough to move, and you actually took action, then fantastic! It worked!!!
But, if you are constantly being inspired but nothing happens….then you don’t need anymore inspiration.
You need an action plan. You need to move.
People like to chat about being inspired. But being inspired costs you nothing. Literally. It is free. I post on social media every day my workouts, or about something I have read that encouraged me, in order to inspire and encourage all of you. And it is all free for you. I don’t charge for my inspiration. I give that away because I know it can benefit the heart of the reader.
But, if you come to me wanting my help to take action, I will require YOU to put some skin in the game. That means, you will have to invest your time and dollars in order for you to reach your desired goal. Action requires skin in the game. It does not require more motivation or inspiration. Those help to keep momentum. Heck, we all love an “Atta Girl!” Now and then! No shame in that!
But if you aren’t willing to move and put some skin on, then you are wanting to achieve anything.
Are you ready for this? I say this in love. Completely. Because I love you.
You just want to be inspired. You aren’t looking to change. You don’t want to change, yet. You are not there yet.
“But why do I have to spend so much money to get healthy/build my business/get training/etc.
Because. If you put into it, it will matter more to you. You will care more. It will hurt more because it cost you something. My journey was not free. It still isn’t. I invest regularly into my health, my relationships, my home, my business, because it matters to me! I have skin in this. It matters.
I know that part is painful. We don’t like to give any part of ourselves if we aren’t sure if it will work out. There are no guarantees, really.
But what if. Just what if you decided to take that inspiration, invest in it, and be surprised by the outcome.
You may discover it was worth it.
