I’ve heard it said that if you’re bored with life then most likely life is bored with you. I don’t want to focus on the negative, however, that does resonate with me. I’ve also had it described to me as, we are beings who have been given wings to fly, but in order to get off the ground, we must put in the effort to flap them ourselves. Then and only then, can we have lift and fly.

It’s the potential vision with focused effort. It’s planning, arriving and executing. I can easily get stuck in the “big idea” phase and struggle to move into the action steps needed to begin the build. Or get discouraged because I haven’t seen the fruits of my efforts.

What we all have to remember is that the initial and repeated “showing up” is one of the most difficult aspects of the process. But, we begin to gain momentum as we consistently arrive to face our fears and over time – the longer we remain steadfast – the effects are compounded. Eventually, there’s a tipping point. If we continue, our idea begins to take shape and order begins to descend on what we thought was chaos. We see the fruits of our labor. We take flight.

Now we’re creating. There’s nothing boring about that.
