Living out a ‘radical life’ sounds exciting, but it requires action. I’ve dreamed about radically changing areas of my life but lack motivation. However, I recognize that doing the same thing yields the same results.
To change, I must take action. First, I admit exactly what I want and why. This strips away excuses. Second, I build a support system of encouraging people who motivate me. Third, I refuse any more excuses. Fourth, I accept my path may look different than planned, yet still effective. And fifth, I take the next step, however small.
Are you ready to live bold and in purpose?
I ACTUALIZE my radical life when I become determined to move into that life and to keep moving until it happens.
I know that I am designed for so much more than this – but I will never fulfill my design by waiting around for it to happen. I need to take action to bring about my radical life in all the different areas and facets of who I am.
ACTUALIZE a Radical Life
I have to admit what I really want and why I want it. It’s time to rip off the band-aid and be brutally honest with myself.
I have to build a foundation of people that will hold me accountable, and that will be brutally honest with me and help me to be brutally honest as well.
I have to refuse to accept any more excuses. I am great at coming up with a reason not to do what I know to do.
I have to accept that it may not always look like what I thought it would look like. Flexibility is essential for success actions.
I have to take the next step – not because I know the full pattern of steps that I will be taking but because I know this next step.
The radical life is one of action – I have to move forward if I am going to reach my destination – and movement is all about the action. When I ACTUALIZE into my radical life, then I will be living out the actions necessary.
