You Already Know What You Need to Do (Yes, You Do)

November 11, 2014

You know that one thing you want to really get a handle on in your life? The thing that’s really frustrating you, making you feel less than the success you want to be, and just something you really want to accomplish in your life?

Yeah, you know what that thing is for you, and I know what that thing is for me… and I’m about to lay down a hard truth for us both:

You already know what you need to do. 

Yes, you do.

While you may not know each and every step between where you are now, and what it would take to get to where you want to be, you know what you need to do next.

At the very least, you know that you need to make some changes, or that something has to give. You know that you need to set some boundaries, or stand more firmly in your truth. Or, maybe you just need to take some time to figure out exactly what is true for you right now.

You know that you need to call that person, stop eating that food, start working out, try meditation, write in your journal, talk to your significant other about that thing they do that drives you nuts, fill out the application, or whatever else you already know.

You know you just have to put into practice all those things others have recommended, experts and friends, and all the things you’ve read about or learned since you’ve decided this was something you wanted in your life.

You just need to actually do the things you know you need to do.

Even if that’s just being honest about what you want. Even if that’s just making a phone call to talk to an expert who knows what you really need to do. Even if that’s just putting one of the many things you know you need to be doing into practice starting today. Right now.

You know you need to stop making excuses and acting like you’re missing some important piece of information. You’re not, you’re just hoping for someone to show up one day with a magic pill and super simple trick that will make things change or happen without you having to actually do anything.

But that’s not the way it works, at least not most of the time.

So here’s the one simple action step I have for you today:

Do the thing you know you need to do.

And if you are really convinced that you don’t know, I promise that you do. While it may not be apparent on the surface level, we always know what we want, who we are, and what we need to do to bring that to life (at least those first steps). All you have to do is get quiet and still, tune into your body and intuition, and ask your higher self what needs to happen for you to create what you desire to create.

Because if you’re honest with both me and yourself, you already knew that’s what you needed to do… just take a moment to pause and think about what you want and what you need to do to get it.

So let’s make a promise to each other right now, okay? I’m going to do the things I know I need to do to create some things in my life I really desire to create. You’re going to do the things you know you need to do to create what you desire… even if that’s just taking a moment out of your crazy busy life to just pause and think about what that means.
