Purposeful Action

What have you sacrificed since your RA diagnosis?

Are there activities or hobbies that you used to engage in, but no longer do?

Why did you stop?

[Really think about this.]

How would you feel if you were to paint, draw, photograph [insert hobby here]?  How would it improve the quality of your life?  What would it do for your mindset?

It’s great to know what you want to do, but that’s not enough.

You must actually do it.  Thinking about what you’d love to do is a step in the right direction, but it’s the action part that makes the difference.

Action requires ascendance over excuses.

Think about that.

Making excuses – even legitimate excuses – doesn’t count.  There are thousands and thousands of people who’ve tossed excuses out the window .. They’ve made the conscious decision to overcome obstacles .. To move mountains .. To prove to others – and more importantly, themselves – what they can do.  They refuse to be defined by their limitations .. They scratch and scrape and bloody their knees, but they persevere and create their reality.

Conditions will never be perfect.  Excuses will always be easier.

Make the choice to overcome what your mind thinks you cannot do.

Purposeful, positive, focused and intentional action are the building blocks of your best, most authentic life.

Take that first step and make it happen.  Move the needle today.
