I’m pretty sure most people have heard of the Law of Attraction, in which one believes that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts that one can bring positive or negative things into their life.
That is not this…..
I’m talking about the law of ACTION. I don’t think it is actually a “law”, but it should be. The Law of Attraction relies on fate and a factor of intangibility. The law of Action relies on one choosing to take action and thus responsibility for the things in their life.
While I do recognize that there are many things that occur in life that we do not have control over, we still have control over how we take action when those things happen. And we have control over all the rest of the things.
In my opinion, there are too many people out there that truly believe that life just happens to them. Ignoring the fact that most of the time in most days their life is where it is and what it is because of the choices they make every day. With every choice there is a consequence, whether good or bad. One’s life is a compiling of all these choices and consequences.
The law of Action
If you do not like where your life is…..take Action. If you do not like what your life is…..take Action.
If you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you will keep getting what you’ve always gotten.
The law of Action is this…..DO something different. DO SOMETHING different to yield a different result. How can you keep doing the same things you’ve always done and expect your life (or body or whatever) to be different? That’s insanity folks. [Insanity meaning: extreme foolishness or irrationality (thank you Google Dictionary)]
The Hard Part & The Best Part
Don’t go through your whole life not recognizing and realizing the power that is held with taking full responsibility for your life, choices, and actions. The difficult part of this statement is that means that the state of your life is your choice.
If you feel stagnate, it is because you are choosing not to do something. If you feel out of control, it is because you are choosing not to be disciplined. If you feel unhappy, it is because you are choosing to look at your life (day) with the wrong perspective. Do you see the trend here?
The best part of this, the freedom from “fate” lies with this recognition as well…..this means you can take Action and do something different to change your life into what you want it to be. This is not an easy thing….but it is a worth it thing. Please read my Do You Have GRIT? post.
I beg of you, do not sit back and passively wait for life to happen to you and live a reactive life. The actualization of your goals will not materialize by fate, because “you deserve it”. You deserve what you work for or not work for.
Live your life by the law of Action.
