Inertia

9 Jul

Inertia – A tendency to do nothing or to remain unchanged. (Dictionary.com)

Change is a constant in life. The only thing we can count on is that no matter what is going on now, it will eventually change into something else. Nothing is permanent and there is no way to know what will happen next. Although this is an undeniable fact, we are in control of our lives. If we are determined to keep things the same, we can stand still, and remain where we are, repeating the same things over and over. The situations around us will undoubtedly move on and there will be alterations in our environment, but we can stand still for as long as we like. Staying in the same place and repeating the same patterns can be comforting, but sameness and inertia will never take us to the destinations we dream about. It’s impossible to accomplish the goals we most desire and get the lives we want by doing nothing. Standing still may be familiar, but it will not bring us the richness and depth that trying something new will afford. Our lives are ours to design, and if we’re unhappy or dissatisfied, staying in the same place won’t improve the situation. If we want something different, or something more, we must exert effort. Nothing will magically change and our lives won’t improve simply because we desire it. Everything is possible and every dream we imagine can be reached, but it’s up to us to make it happen. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we’re willing to do what is necessary to make it ours. We can wait as long as we want, stand still until the cows come home, but until we step forward, and pursue what we desire most, nothing will change. We have all the wisdom and courage necessary to do whatever we desire. All we need to do is step forward, and begin.

Everyone has dreams about the life they want, goals they want to reach, and places they want to go. Thinking about them and planning for them is the first step in reaching success, but until we take action, nothing will change. Everything we do has a result. Each action brings something new. We don’t have to completely upend our lives and change everything all at once to get where we want to go. We can begin with one small step forward, and then take another. As we continue to move ahead, the goal will become clear and we will reach success.

Change can be intimidating, but there is no way to move from where we are to where we want to be without it. We may need to step into foreign territory and travel unknown paths, but we are strong and have all the courage required to accomplish anything. We can trust ourselves to find the right roads ahead, and believe in our ability to succeed. The lives we dream of are possible, and with faith and determination, we can make them ours.

Today if you want something more, make a plan to begin moving forward. There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish and every dream is possible. Decide what you want most, and then take the first step toward the goal. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is too difficult or too far away. Trust yourself and be confident. All your dreams are waiting, and you will make them yours.
