This week we look at stepping into action even if it means making a mistake or getting it wrong.
This past week I spent time reflecting on some actions I had taken at work. My intention was to help people, but the results were far from desirable. For a while I was beating myself up about getting it wrong. This weekend, however, I realized that the beauty of it, is that I actually stepped into action rather than doing nothing and remaining silent.
In the same way that we often respond to people who ask, “How do I get clothes free?” by saying, “Just take your clothes off and read!” we can apply that whole “just do it” idea to other areas in our lives. We might not know the outcome, we might make mistakes, but there is beauty and power in stepping into action.
Where in your life have you been avoiding action out of fear of getting it wrong? Can you take even a small, simple action this week?
