Reading: Mindful action
“We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we have now has been the result of past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in the future can be produced by our present actions: so we have to know how to act.” – Swami Vivekananda
Great reminder of the power of the present – freeing ourselves from past regrets, etc. – to support skillful action.
Last Friday, Seth Godin posted an inspiring post entitled The initiator which resonates so well for me as well. I can let feelings of inadequacy, not-good-enough etc. serve as both conscious and sub-conscious blocks from action. Waiting for perfection before taking action leads only to further inaction.
