The difference between success and stuck-ness.

The difference between success and stuck-ness.

The difference between success and stuck-ness is… (drumroll please, & get ready for a passionate sermon) TAKING ACTION.

If you wonder why you’re not getting the results you want in your life, you’re not taking action.

If you wonder why it’s so hard for you, you’re not taking action.

If you secretly dream of being discovered, you’re not taking action.

If you’re reflecting over and over on possible challenges, you’re not taking action.

If you’re telling your old story of failure to yourself over and over, you’re not taking action.

If you’re delaying the choice for the “right time”, you’re not. taking. action.

…Actually I’m sorry you are taking an action, you ARE making a choice.

You’re choosing to do nothing.

If nothing changes, then nothing changes.

 

When I say take action, I mean MOVE YOUR BODY TOWARDS YOUR GOALS.

I learned this recently in an Acceptance & Commitment training I went to and I think it’s brilliant. Just take some action towards your goals. Move your body. Any action. Anything at all, let your negative voice tag along for the ride.  You can just ignore it and keep going.

Deep down in your heart & soul, you KNOW that results worth having, are worth fighting for. That the life you want is not going to be handed to you on a platter, it takes work. It takes expanding your comfort zone. It takes getting off your butt. It takes being bloody scared of failure and embarrassment, and acting anyway because what you want to create and give is so much more important.

It takes facing your fears and telling your story of “I’m not good enough” to go shove it.

If I sound passionate about this, I am! I jumped up out of bed to write this because the idea came to me after a dream.  I literally have my pyjamas on.  Don’t think I’m raging at you from some holier-than-thou pulpit, I’m saying this just as much to myself as anybody else, I DO take action. And yet still I could DO MORE, I could BE more, I could SERVE more, I could RECEIVE more, and I could GIVE more.

Something from without, or something from within.

Brendan Burchard says that in order for change to happen either one of two things must happen. Something new must come from outside of you. Teaching, mentoring, coaching, support, encouragement, accountability, a new idea or development in society or technology. OR something new must come from within YOU, a new idea, a latent passion, a decision, a commitment, a drive.

I think in order for there to be ultimate success there needs to be both.

But you don’t need both at the start…

JUST. GET. STARTED.

If you get started with and idea you WILL find your tribe of soul-sistas, who are out there fighting for the same things, and will support, encourage, laugh and cry with you. Celebrate your successes and give you a hand when you have fallen. If you get started, eventually society and technology will be ripe for what you want to achieve. If you get started, then you will refine and refine, and discover the clarity that you lacked. You don’t need all the pieces to get started, you don’t need to have a burning passion, and the right circumstances, and the perfect support network, and know exactly where you’re going.

You know the only thing you need to get started…. The ONLY thing.

A dissatisfaction with your status quo.

A yearning that there must be something greater out there for you.  A desire to improve. A pain that won’t go away no matter how you shove it down with food and the busy-ness of your life. Feel that pain. Feel it. That is your key to taking action. That will get you started.

Oh and there’s one more thing that is the difference between success and stuckness. More action. That decision and commitment to keep going. To keep on taking action until you get there. No matter how long, no matter how windy the road, how many times you fall or falter.

Just. Keep. Going.

If you commit to keep going in spite of your fears, in spite of your failures, in spite of the time or the lack of resources or support, you will achieve the life that you want.

You know that quote on every quote wall, but nobody deeply thinks about: “the journey  is the destination”. It’s true. You might think that in order to be happy and feel successful you need to lose 10 kgs / get a promotion /  have more money in the bank / find your ideal partner…

But you don’t. You don’t need to achieve before you start feeling good about yourself. You only need to decide, commit and take action. You only need to be working towards it, and start getting some feedback that what you’re doing is working in order to feel good and continue. It really IS the journey. Why? Because it’s the act of stepping up. Of expanding your comfort zone. Of saying I want more in my life and I’m not afraid to go for it.  THAT’S what gives you the tingles, the excitement, the jump out of bed.

That’s what will fuel your little flame of pain until it becomes a raging fire of passion and inspires you and everyone around you.  Then people will start asking you, how do you do it?

It’s not in achievement that you feel happy, its in the honouring of your heart’s desire through daily action.

with love,

Kylie x

  1. Oh wow Kylie – LOVE THIS!
    Especially this paragraph below………………………………….

    "A yearning that there must be something greater out there for you. A desire to improve. A pain that won’t go away no matter how you shove it down with food and the busy-ness of your life. Feel that pain. Feel it. That is your key to taking action. That will get you started.

    That speaks to my heart and soul and the journey that I have taken since meeting you in Feb this year! Thank you; I will always remain grateful to you because now I am in action everyday and I FREAKIN' LOVE MY LIFE! 🙂

  2. I am so glad gorgeous lady! You are a star at this. I totally respect how you have taken action in spite of fears and possible excuses, and you are living the dream. I can hear it in your voice and see it in your smile! You're awesome.
