The Choice to Be Productive

I’ve talked about this before, and it seems like I am speaking about it even more.

Every day we have a choice to intentionally be involved in our life.  For some, that may sound silly, odd or off the wall. For others, they will ‘get it’.

To some who are getting to know me, as you learn more about me, I may appear to you as  an ‘over achiever’.  To those, that may be your perception – but the reality is, I simply choose to be productive. 

As I was growing up, I had hopes, ideas, and dreams of how I wanted my life to be.  Some of those ideas came to pass. Others did not. I did not have the knowledge, the resources, the support system around me to lay the foundation to really make things happen. Now I do.

The big point to make is here: even though I now have all of the things I need to really make dreams, ideas and hopes a reality, the most important thing that is needed first is the commitment and conviction to make a choice to make things happen!  The cool part is- you can do this too…if you choose to!

So many people say they want to do things, they complain about the way things are- but they are unwilling to actually do anything about it!  They love to wallow in their ‘story’ and it is that ‘story’ that is part of what holds them back.  Actually, there are reasons behind the story- and all too often we stay emotionally attached to those reasons.  They may not be logical (in fact, most of the time they are not) however, they are familiar and comfortable.   The easy way out of things is to do or stay where it is comfortable. 

Do you have hopes, dreams, ideas that you say you want to come to pass?  Are you being honest with yourself when you say the answer?  Is it really what you want?  If deep down inside, the answer is YES- then all you have to do now is make the choice to change. Make the choice to do one thing a day to make one of your goals, dreams, ideas come to pass.  Each day you take a new step. Each day you take a new action. Each day you are laying the foundation and walking the pathway to seeing your dreams and ideas become reality! 

You may have to modify some of the habits you have now in order to create ‘room’ in your life to do these new actions.  That’s good!  You want that!  If you feel a bit uncomfortable because you are walking in unfamiliar territory- that’s ok!  You want that – it’s a sign of growth!

Make the choice to be productive and follow your dreams.  In doing so, you can be one of those people who lives a life with no regrets when they are older.   

If you need (or want) some support in gaining the courage to take the first step, a key is to learn from leaders who have already done things like this.  A great resource that is available to you to start learning what you can do to make changes that produce the results you want in your life is right here:   Tune in weekly and really take the time – invest the time into yourself- to hear the information and wisdom brought forth from the show and the guests.

If you cannot hear the new broadcasts live, the archives are there for you to listen to at your own pace.  Feel free to listen to them often as they will give you solid information from people who have made the choice to make themselves a success.  They are here freely offering up their experiences and learning lessons to help shorten your learning curve!

It’s been said before, if you choose to do the same thing the same way and expect different results- that is the definition of insanity.  You HAVE the power to make the CHOICE to be Productive!  Choose it, live it, love it and thrive with your growth.  You can reach your potential- if you are willing to do what needs to be done.

Enjoy your choice – and remember, even if you choose to NOT choose- you STILL have made a choice!

  1. sometimes it takes a life-turning event for a person to be able to know what his or her heart really desires. some people I know delay jumping to a job that they really love just because they are “comfortable” with what they do now even if it’s not contributing to their overall personal growth. sad but true.
