The Turtle Sticks his Neck Out to Make Progress, What About You?



“Behold the turtle: he only makes progress when he sticks his neck out.”  James Bryant Conant, educator and diplomat 1893 – 1978

Last week I talked about procrastination. Do you think you have put off doing something because it could mean you will be sticking your head above the parapet if you do it? When we stop procrastinating we may have to stick our necks out. How does that feel, does it bring up limiting beliefs, beliefs that have held you back from doing what you really wanted to do, for most of your life? Is it time to step out beyond those beliefs and fears, and make a stand for that life you know at your core is what you want. Is it time to recognise that the procrastination is a smoke shield for the fear that you may not have what it takes?

I’m sure you have heard of the Law of Attraction. We all have the ability to make changes to our lives to be in line with our vision. We do have to believe that we can do it. If we’re going to stick our necks out we need to have a big WHY! If we’re putting the message out to the universe that we know we can achieve our dream, and we know why it so important to fulfil that dream, we are more likely to stick our necks out regardless and achieve what we believe is possible. Doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result, has been termed insanity. When are you going to stick your neck out and go after your dream?

Enjoy sticking your neck out!
