Clarity Comes With Action

Clarity comes with action.  

Jeff Goins

Most people have dreams and goals. 

These are things we want to do and accomplish in our lives. 

In order to obtain these dreams and goals we need to take action. 

Daily action. 

Once you start to move and take action the path becomes more clear. 

You can adjust and pivot as you take action each day. 

Just keep moving! 

If you take no action you cannot adjust and pivot. 

One way I know what actions I need to take is to listen to the Inner Nudges I receive from my Centering Prayer sits. 

My daily silent sits seem to spawn the actions I need to take. 

Fear is never a reason not to take action. 

It is okay to be a little bit nervous when you do things outside of your comfort zone. 

This is how you grow. 

Sometimes the daily action is no action. 

This means I need to rest and wait. 

Clarity comes with action! 

Just keep moving!
