Yesterday in our discussion of what it means to act with “Tenacity Comes From Within, I shared a definition and posed some questions for you.
On this edition of “Becoming Today”, so you don’t miss out, I’ll ask them again allowing you to reflect upon them, while I answer a question I get asked quite a bit.
When last we spoke, I shared that I had come to an understanding of what it truly means to be intentionally dedicated and persistent.
“To be purposefully tenacious is acting intentionally. With reason and uncommon determination in a consistent, dedicated manner.
Not being swayed, continuing forward in spite of any obstacles or perceived challenges.
Remaining steadfast, persistent, assured, affirmed and forbearant until we successfully fulfill our goal or objective”.
That goal for me is to share what I have learned. Testify to how life can be overcome and help as many of you as I can.
That goal I have for us, is to come together to seek answers to these questions:
How do I, as an individual and we as a society, focus on “Becoming” what we are truly destined to be?
How do we become all we can be?
How do we further enrich our lives and those of our families, friends, communities and society as a whole?
What exactly is it we want to become today?
That goal for you is? For you to decide and then act upon. Maybe even share with the rest of us either in the comments section or through our Contact page.
Now to answer a question.
Some have asked, ‘is there a shortcut to living righteously?’
Well the short answer is no, however you can get there quicker by starting,… now.
No two can do it in identical ways. While we walk this shared path together, our steps are independently ordered and routes vary.
Though the inspiration you desire is found in the same place. It is within. It resides inside you, in each and everyone of us.
To start “Becoming”, you need to bypass your mind. Detach from those lingering thoughts , worries, and distractions. Find that peaceful place and in solitude to make the decision to take action for yourself.
Make the decision to follow your heart and take action on what you know for yourself, what you want to achieve and the Truth. Just make a decision to listen to your heart and heed your intuition. Your heart is programmed by God. Your mind by other people. Choose love and the path revealed will lead you to your true purpose, your destiny, the life you were intended to live.
The power to do it. The power to achieve it all is within.
Listen to it.
Grow with it, then you are “Becoming”.
For me, when I’m having some difficulty focusing, I’ll pick up a pen and just let a little free association take place. Just writing down, whatever pops into my head, then discerning the direction that is being revealed to me.
As I pondered what to share with you, in this “Becoming Today”, here is what I started with:
The power is within.
The guidance is available.
All is “Becoming”.
At first it looks just like scribbles on a page, but when I review it and lay it out here, I see structure to it. Questions, answers, a rhythm, balance and an outline.
So where do I go from there?
I make a decision. A decision to review what just came from within. Then another decision to contemplate what I just reviewed from within, and then yes another decision to expand upon and write about what inspiration I received from within.
Afterall, what happens when you make a decision? That is correct — it is either right or wrong. If it’s right, go with it, learn from it, and do it again. If it didn’t work out? Go with it, learn from it and don’t do it again. Instead head within again and seek revision in your inspiration.
No human can make every decision correctly. We will (and do) make wrong decisions. But the only truly bad decision is deciding not to make any decision at all.
