Be About It

Remember how people used to talk smack on the playground when you were little? One of the things you could taunt that made you sound tough and fearless was, "Don't talk about it, be about it." Meaning "I'm not afraid. Do what you will. Bring it on!" As children, we had no idea of the power of those words, but lo and behold they actually ring quite true into adulthood. We have to be just as unafraid now as we were then, challenging life to "bring it on!" and do what it will, because we can certainly handle it.

When you're going about making changes in your life, or reaching for your dreams, don't just talk about it, be about it:

If you're sure that relationship isn't for you, and you know you need to move on--do it! Don't wait. You're wasting valuable healing time.

If you're ready for a new job, stop complaining and put a plan in place to find one. It may take time, but at least you're working toward a goal.

If you're serious about your dream, then be serious about it! Visualize, research, plan, sow seeds, network, take a class, get that degree. Whatever you need to do to make it happen, do it!

Whatever your struggles or your desires, you have the power to affect change in your situation at any moment you decide to. So stop talking about it and be about it!

Ready for change
