What Taking Inspired Action Really Means
I’m sure you have heard the term “Inspired Action,” but what does that really mean? There’s a big difference between just taking action and taking inspired action. Action feels forceful. Inspired action feels effortless. The key is to be aware of the difference. The difference is, with action you might be forcing things to come together, whereas with inspired action you are allowing things to come together and aligning as they should without any interference. You are trusting the process, the flow of things and you are not caught up in the outcome.
Here’s what inspired action feels like:
- It won’t feel like work, you will be excited and energized by it instead of dreading it
- Things will just fall into place effortlessly and easily without a lot of force or pushing
- You will make progress towards your goal and not feel stuck
- You will go with the flow and allow things to line up for you without you controlling the situation or the outcome
Here’s what just taking action feels like:
- You will feel overwhelmed and frustrated, things will be a struggle
- You will force things, feeling like you have to make things happen often putting unnecessary pressure on yourself
- It will feel like work
- You might feel like you have to stay up all night to get things done and often complain about it
- You might spend too much time over thinking and over analyzing everything or even procrastinating on things for far too long
If it doesn’t feel aligned, if it doesn’t feel good, it’s not inspired action — it’s really as simple as that. If you are struggling and spinning your wheels, you are trying too hard. Sit back, relax and let the universal flow take over. You don’t have to do anything! Trust me, it will feel so much better!
The first step in taking inspired action is being aware of what you are currently feeling now. Practice releasing that struggle. What would it feel like if it was easy and effortless? How would that feel? What would that allow you to do? Get in the habit of catching yourself, stopping and ask what you can do instead. It takes a little practice but the changes will be felt in a more peaceful joyous way of doing things.
