Creative Momentum

“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right!” – Henry Ford

The fear of doing something is often consumes more energy than simply doing it. Those fears are compounded by inaction, heightened by vacillation, and magnified by short-sightedness. That said, fears are best overcome by action.

The pattern of action in your life shapes your pattern of attitude. I suppose the reverse is true, as well, but the point is that developing a habit of stepping up to the plate and swinging no matter how inadequate you may feel will create creative momentum in your life. And that creative momentum is both sufficient and necessary to escaping the vortex of lethargy and mediocrity into which many lives are poured.

    I’ve always appreciated this line from the Bhagavad Gita; “Creation is only the projection into form of that which already exists.” I believe it’s not a matter of force projected from ourselves but aligning ourselves with the force of life. I guess as everything else, momentum begins in the heart.

    Your baseball analogy make me think of your posts as a thrown pitch. Will I first show up to the plate in reading them and then making a connection. A connection that I apply to my life. Some days there may be singles or homers hit and even strikeouts. All in all showing up and taking my best swing is what matters. Nothing like playing ball!
