What to do if you really want to do something—do it with your whole heart
One of the greatest sins that we can ever commit on the journey to success is “not doing something wholeheartedly”—not doing something enough—or, not doing something strong enough!
Many people lack some necessary zeal and vigor which are two useful servants of faith and unlimited potential or abilities: we don’t do what we know we’re supposed to do because we’re not sure we can accomplish it, even though it’s worthwhile.
At other times, we are not in a good mood and don’t have adequate amount of energy to do something well or wholeheartedly—and so we put it off, only to meet it another day and fight yet again!
Most times the heart doesn’t function with full force, or wholeheartedly. “Writer’s block” is a popular example of a restriction or mental pattern that causes people not to think and write wholeheartedly.
Writer’s block is an emotional or mental barrier that springs up in a writer’s mind, incapacitates them, and makes them unable to write what they truly love to write about.
Sometimes writer’s block can be so severe that a writer might have to visit a psychotherapist for help. Many writers have to overcome writer’s block before they can be able to make a living from writing.
If you don’t do something with your whole heart, you will likely become convinced that you can’t or won’t do many things well
By not doing something wholeheartedly, one might lose energy and motivation to do many things right away, even if they are generally easy to do.
Many people don’t actually need a psychotherapist; what they need is to understand how the mind works, especially when it loses motivation, or whenever there is any type of block.
The cure for procrastination or certain types of “blocks” is to go ahead and do what you want to do with your whole heart
The key to achieving something is to just to start doing it! The key to writing is to just start typing anything, even if will be the worst thing you will ever type—just start from somewhere!
In here book titled “Bird by Bird”, Novelist Anne Lamott stated: “Almost all good writings begin with terrible first efforts…you need to start somewhere. Start by getting something—anything—down on paper”.
By doing something wholeheartedly (with your whole heart), you will be able to disempower procrastination and pessimistic thoughts from taking control of your mind and thinking
If you are a writer, for example, the mere fact that you’ve taken action and started typing, is good enough to provide you with enough energy to achieve something valuable, no matter how slow you move.
Many people are incapable of summoning enough energy because they have become consciously or unconsciously afraid they won’t do things well. Whenever you are in the initial stages of doing something, use every little step or action to inspire yourself and move forward and upward ever, backward never.
In many ways, everybody is like a writer: “blocks” make us incapable of doing many things
It’s sad to see everybody with ideas, but only a few people getting their ideas worked upon and done; this is pitiful, especially when each person is really creative deep down within.
Everybody is very much capable of living a great life; however, many people are so afraid of ever doing anything to make it happen because they afraid they won’t be able to do things well.
Don’t be afraid. Once you believe you need to do something, just decide to put in all your best effort and start doing it with your whole heart—enjoy the motivation that would take over you when you start the process!
