When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step? (@scottbelsky)
I hate the word “aspiration.” It makes me think of my son’s arrival into the word with aspirated amniotic fluid and meconium that almost killed him. His neonatologist told me Eric was too stubborn to die, that his will to be here saved his life, not the medical care he received. Then he asked me to remember that when Eric became a teenager – that if he hadn’t been born stubborn, he wouldn’t be here at all. That advice served me well during the teenager years and still does even though he’s 23. I’m a Taurus so I understand stubborn – good thing for Eric! 😉
I digress . . . what’s my next step? Showing up. Every. Single. Day. Staying stuck in depression or procrastination or fear is the cement shoes of my life. By showing up, I keep the cement from hardening. Forward progress becomes not only possible but probable. Action isn’t possible without showing up, so for me, that’s my next step. What’s yours?
