Take Action!

Baby Steps are fine. It’s amazing how far you can go just because you took that first step. Move in any direction that feels right. You don’t need to see the complete path, just the next step. In fact, it is better if you don’t sit and wait until you can see how it will all work out. Just take one step, and the next step will appear.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. ~ Albert Einstein

This is a Recipe for living your best and happiest life. If you just leave the ingredients in the cupboard, it will not work. You must DO something.

Belief is not in the recipe. Trust, Allowing, and non-Judgement are. Don’t worry about what you believe; care about what you do.

To me, if life boils down to one thing, it’s movement. To live is to keep moving.  ~ Jerry Seinfeld

helpOnly you can do you. Ask for help if you need it but always follow your own heart.

Stay in your Happy Zone for as long as you can, as often as you can.

You don’t have to use a mantra but if it helps put you in your Happy Zone – go for it.

You don’t have to write morning pages but if they help put you in your Happy Zone – go for it.

You don’t have to keep a journal but if it helps put you in your Happy Zone  – go for it.

You don’t have to tell anyone what you are doing but if it helps keep you in your Happy Zone  – go for it.

“The fool, with all his other faults, has this also; he is always getting ready to live.” ~ Epicurus

How many books have you read, and how many courses have you taken? The Tao of Joy is simple and effective, so what are you waiting for? Baby Steps are fine.

Whatever can happen at any time can happen today. ~ Seneca

“Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes and denies us the present by promising the future. The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.” ~ Seneca

Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice ~ Anton Chekhov

I can’t stress enough that you are not to get attached to the details of your plan. Just do what comes next and let your Animating Current fill in the details. If you are attached to the how of getting to your dreams or attached to exactly what the process will be, you can really handicap your Animating Current. You can plan for a big new house but if you are attached to exactly what that is and how you will get there, you can miss out on something even better. Always plan on staying in your Happy Zone for as long as you can and as often as you can.

You don’t have to see where the steps end.
