"All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without the benefit of experience." Henry Miller
Whoever said, "Inch by inch, it's a cinch," wasn't in much of a rush.
While success is oftentimes measured in small but meaningful increments, where you scale the wall in front of you one inch at a time, sometimes you just don't have time to take the baby steps. Sometimes you need to get there - and get there as fast as you can.
That's when big, bold, decisive steps must be taken. Not hasty. Not rash. Not impulsive or thoughtless steps where you careen out of control. But daring, courageous, 'I've got to get there and get there now' steps that move you in the right direction.
"Leap and the net will appear." John Burroughs
No doubt about it, some people are slow pokes. They like to take their time. They like to move in a cautious, careful manner. Ever mindful to never upset the apple cart, these take it easy types are quite content to get there whenever they get there. The problem is, moving at their snail's pace, they may never get there at all. But that fact doesn't seem to faze them one bit. They just keep poking and plodding along.
How about you?
You have things you want to accomplish. Goals you want to realize. All sorts of things you want to get done. And you want to achieve them as soon as you can. Do you really believe you're going to make them happen by trudging, dawdling and dilly-dallying around?
I didn't think so.
"Great work is done by people who are not afraid to be great." Fernando Flores
Life is short. And busy. And full of detours and distractions. If you take your eye off of the prize, even for a moment, the prize may be gone... and gone for good. If there is something you want to do, you better get moving, you better get going, you better get busy chasing that something before it gets away.
And get going now.
No more poking around. No more biding your time. No more clunking and sputtering along in the slow lane. You've got to go. You've got to move. You've got to pound and push and pursue that something with all of your might.
You need to toss the inch by inch, bit by bit, one step at a time approach out the window. And set your heart on fire with purpose, passion and power.
"Every great accomplishment is the story of a flaming heart." Mary Lou Retton
You know what you love, what you want to achieve, what you seek in life. And you know it with all of your heart.
These are the things that fire you up, that turn you on; that make you come alive. The things you have dreamed of having, being and doing. The things that make your life the incredible journey it deserves to be.
So what in the world are you waiting for?
You need to leap into the fray. Dive into the action. Jump in with both feet - and get things moving. Go as fast as you can. Go as hard as you can. Go as long as you can. And keep going until you get something going right now.
When you start stirring the pot, things will start clicking. Things will start popping. Things will start happening all over the place. And you will experience a rush of excitement, energy and enthusiasm that's off the charts.
In the blink of an eye, your life will get better.
Your relationships will get better.
Your work will get better.
YOU will get better... better than you ever thought possible.
Better by leaps and bounds.
Power Pointer: Don't wade in. Dive in. And get it done.
