Ever had one of those days when you wake up already feeling defeated?
Like your heart is nowhere near into what it is that you know needs doing? And the thought of taking the next step in the direction of your dreams leaves you feeling exhausted?
Monday was one of those days for me. Which is especially hard because it was a Monday. And Mondays “should be” full of promise, and energy, and possibility.
Used to be that when I landed on days like Monday, I’d jump into action, run in the opposite direction of what I was feeling, force myself to make that call, take that step, stare down that to-do list until the rest of me was sucked into the vortex of action and had no choice but to go along.
Because the fear was that if I stop, if I even hesitate, I’d lose momentum. And the only way tomorrow could be better than today was if I kept going.
No matter what.
These days, it’s different.
These days, I’m willing to slow down — stop, even, for a moment (or however long it takes) — to feel whatever I’m feeling and just… let it be.
And then… let it pass. Just like storm clouds in front of a vast and changeless sky.
Common wisdom tells us to fake it till you make it.
To act as if.
To take massive action, even when every fiber of your being stands in resistance.
The problem with this kind of advice is that when you take action from a space of fear/angst/desperation/boredom, what you create as a result has in its DNA this same kind of energy.
Lather, rinse, repeat (because if what shows up in your life leaves you in a state of constant fear/angst/desperation/boredom and you don’t take a different tact, you’re going to get more of the same).
Here’s another way of approaching days like Monday — and every other kind of day.
If you can’t do what needs to be done with joy (simply because of the pleasure you get from the task) or enthusiasm (because you’re working towards a goal that sets you on fire), see if it’s possible for you to just accept the moment as it is, the task as it is, feeling as you do.
Surrendering to what is creates space around your feelings and the situation itself and makes room for peace and inspired action.
Building your business from a place of peace and inspiration — that’s powerful, potent stuff right there. And when you do, you can’t help but be successful — often beyond your wildest dreams.
Plug into what is, right now. Lean into it, offering no resistance. When you do, you’ll know what to do next. And your actions will be infused with a power that you had no idea you possessed.
Think small. Be present. Welcome life on its terms. Do this, and your life will change, forever — and for good.
