The Power of Getting Started

How To Get To A Major Place of Authentic Living

Oh wow!

Today is a good day. It is a good day because last night I realized that everyone around me, are living better lives. This is amazing! Super amazing! And I am grateful for this fact. As a leader, I enjoy watching people around me do well.

Yet, this is not why today is a good day. Today is a good day because it dawned on me that the reason they are all doing well is because many years ago I wanted to change. Of course, like everyone else on planet earth, I had excuses for why the change I sought was too difficult. Yet, unlike most people on this planet, I completely understand the power of getting started!

There is no force more powerful than a person who has decided to get moving. The great scientist Newton said, “An object at rest will remain at rest will until an unbalanced force acts upon it.” Therefore, if you are at rest, you will stay at rest. If you are in motion, you will stay in motion. The unbalanced forces that come against you, those forces that slow you down while you moving are just a natural part of the process.

However, when you are at rest, the unbalanced forces against you, those forces that slow you down, have already stopped you and your mind has made this state of reality comfortable for you. To not be in motion is an unnatural state for man. We literally have to convince our minds to be comfortable with what is unnatural for us.

You Were Meant To Get Started

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started”- Mark Twain

There is so much truth here. If you want to get ahead in life, you must begin to start moving in life. Everything in this world is energy, including you, and all energy is in motion. You are in constant motion and there are never any breaks. You may take them, but this universe never will. So, as you are in a state of inaction, you are actually in a state of action, that type of action just does not serve you.

Therefore, you are someone who is always in motion. This means, you are either moving towards your dreams at all times or moving from your dreams at all times. These are facts. This will never change and you can never change this, regardless of how cute or influential you are. You are constantly in motion. In other words, you have gotten started on poverty or prosperity, but you have started. This is a law!

We Didn’t Get Lucky. We Just Got Moving

I have been very fortunate to employ a small team of the best minds in my area. They are amazing. I have people with Ph.D.’s all the way to people who have hustled small jobs all their lives. We are changing everything about how everything works, especially in our area.

For this reason, people say we are lucky. No, we got moving. It is that simple. Life wanted to be manifested as a top personal development, and training company, offers people from small business owners, to managers, to entrepreneurs, to stay-at-home moms, and college students reliable, high-quality resources through coaching, motivational speaking, and free and paid resources, and it came to us. Had we not moved forward, it would have flown to another group of people.

What does this mean for you? If you ever decide to get moving, the universe begins to move like water and gets the heck out of your way for you. This is your world and you are powerful— made in His image, if you are a believer. If not, then made from the infinite source of power. Either way, you are powerful. When you begin to move forward, you become unlimited.

But Taking Action Is The Scary Part

Of course, we all know how scary it is to move forward. However, let me tell you about fear. Fear does not exist. Fear is simply the hypothetical outcomes and thoughts you keep in your mind about events in your physical reality that you DO NOT WANT TO OCCUR. Listen to me. These events have not happened, nor will they ever happen. Yet, your subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is fake, so it goes through all the emotions as if the event has actually occurred. The fear is not real, the events are not real, but your mind has made it real and has scientifically decided you should not move forward.

No matter how you feel my friend, move forward! There is power in forward motion. All of your dreams are in a forward direction. Your future husband is in a forward place. That promotion you desire is in the land of forward. The only thing you can do from here-on-out is to move forward. But, remember. You are already moving. The question now becomes: am I moving forward to poverty or prosperity.
