Day 16: what does it take to start a new beginning?

16 Jan

What does it take to actually TAKE your first step, to create something, to start anew?

I pondered this question today as I listened to a podcast about change.

The question that stuck out in my mind most, was this:  What needs to shift inside yourself, in order to have your dream?

Later tonight, my computer sent me a targeted email (something, it seems, only my computer knows how to do) sending the perfect message at the perfect time.

The message was from iTunes, suggesting I might be interested in an array of Apps from the New Year, New You store.  I clicked on the link and found everything I need in an App to fix my body, mind, money and time.

As I looked over all of the Apps it occurred to me that something was missing from the store.  While I could buy everything from a yoga instructor to a debt calculator to a gorilla workout and a personal training session with Jillian Michaels, it was missing the most important thing.

The store was missing commitment, passion, and love.

Not that the Apps aren’t powerful and useful.  They are.
But without passion, commitment or love, it’s hard to make an App do all the work on its own.

I thought of this tonight as we began the first call of many for the new You Can Do Anything Coaching Group.  This is a group of women who are making a commitment to themselves for an entire year.  This is a group of women who have passion to make changes, to take on adventures, to live at a new level and to discover more about themselves.

This is a group of women who are investing in themselves for an entire year.

When I think about what it takes to start something new or to create something, I remember that it’s more than just buying something from a store.

It’s a true commitment to self.
And, it’s having faith in the process.

In the words of Martin Luther King:
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

May love be in your heart and faith be at your side.
