23-081 Take Action #4

Today’s Mandala Message: Go around the “caution tapes” of your fears.

Continuing with Principle #13 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Take Action, I set my intention today to ponder “quit waiting”. Canfield offered this list of things to quit waiting for:

  • Perfection
  • Inspiration
  • Permission
  • Reassurance
  • Someone to change
  • The right person to come along
  • The kids to leave home
  • A more favorable horoscope
  • The new administration to take over
  • An absence of risk
  • Someone to discover you
  • A clear set of instructions

That last one, “a clear set of instructions”, has been one of my biggest “waits” of late because most of the time I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing or how I’m supposed to do it. However, I am finding that jumping in and doing something at least lets me know what works and what needs adjusting…otherwise no action is taken and nothing is getting done.

So how about you? Are waiting for things to be “perfect” before you move forward? What “cautions” keep you waiting?

“Everything you want
is out there waiting
for you to ask.
Everything you want
also wants you.
But you have to
take action
to get it.”

— Jules Renard
