Seeds IX, 28

Seed: TNT!

There was a time in my life when I was a motivational speaker, mostly to the nuclear industry, and the first thing I always told them was that I couldn’t motivate anyone. It’s true. No one can really motivate anyone else. That’s because motivation is an inside job.

What I could and did do was create an environment where my listeners’ personal motivation could be activated. Today’s Seed comes from a respected motivational speaker, Denis Waitley. It stands for Today! Not Tomorrow! And it’s a great piece of advice.

Motivation can sometimes feel elusive. Let’s say you’re inspired to make a change in your life. Do it when the inspiration comes! Or, at least, start it when the inspiration comes.

You’ll find, I’m pretty sure, that once you take action—any action—that the next one will naturally flow from the first one. If you don’t act, then the change becomes just so much theory, a good idea, yeah, someday, and it eventually gets filed in the recycling.

Today! Not Tomorrow! Take that one step, and see how much easier the second one is.

Be serene,

Dr. Susan Corso

Seeds are remarkable gifts. Sown in consciousness, they bring you to the most important part of your being—your Divine Spark.
