IDEAS and ACTION work in TANDEM to get you where you want to go.
For a long time, I had some really great ideas in my head, and I again “thought” that maybe someday they would get me somewhere. I thought wrong. Everything started happening when I was able to see that those ideas would be amazing if I started putting them into ACTION.
Several years ago, I had endless paintings I had created stored in closets, behind furniture, and a couple on the wall. What a waste of paint. Sure, as an artistic, emotional, expressive person it had been great to get it all out on canvas, but what about getting it out into the world. A painting is best when viewed, and most of these, no one had ever even seen.
I thought about painting over them, donating them, and even considered just throwing them out.
While I was trying to decide their ultimate demise, I remembered that there had once been a time when I dreamed of giving them life.
I had always hoped of having my paintings in galleries. I remembered the passion I had when I once believed that was an actual possibility. If I trashed them, I knew I would be trashing the dream, and if I trashed the dream, I would be losing a part of myself. I wasn’t ready for the dream to be deferred. I took ACTION and watched the dream become a reality.
One day I was at a cafe sipping coffee and nearly spit it right out as I watched my painting walk right past my eyes in the arms of its purchaser!
This was such a surreal moment, and it was amazing to have one of my dreams come true. It all happened because I had taken real action. Your thoughts are EVERYTHING when you pair them with Action.
