Stop Dreaming, Start Doing - Get Balance Into Your Life -  Steve Wickham


Life is essentially about balance. Balance can be about patience and the absence of greed, surrender. We're forever trying to get "more" from life... "More value," "more time," "more thrills" -- we have such insatiable appetites.
For instance, we have sleepovers and parties that go way into the night, well into the morning and we get so overtired -- it is all so counterproductive to balance and essential health. We can't cheat our bodies and continue to get away with it. Working long hours (without limit) similarly goes against our body clocks and against our peace. Going to the gym every day and working in constant soreness. Eating excessive amounts or the wrong foods. Taking drugs and drinking too often and too much. What about toxic relationships? What about pornography? We need to correct the imbalances / restore balance in all these things.
We have all these motives to keep in check. Balance can be about surrender. It could be that you don't know why you desire to do things that go against balance. That's a perfect time to seek balance through surrendering by just going against your desire. This is far easier said than done -- that's no surprise to you, right?
It brings enormous relief to know that something that had a hold on you no longer has; a time when you finally reconcile the awareness of reality -- 'This thing is out of whack and is throwing my life off balance -- enough!' You've been made aware, now with the will (power of the mind) you have to surrender this thing.
Desires must be disciplined. Prepare and then just do it. You know you have to restore balance to your life, for health, for sanity, to become happy again. Come on, just do it. The benefits you will get far outweigh the cost of the initial pain you're about to experience. Surrender by being strong with your errant desire; rein it in. You can do it. You know you can. You need encouragement. Take mine; just do it. One day at a time, you can do this thing that you know you need to do. Just do it. Courage, willpower, discipline -- these are instantly all yours.
Visualise: the you that has crushed this rampant desire that has your life currently out of balance and out of control. You have a new sense of confidence from your achievement; you command a new sense of respect in those you love and admire. You've shown them something very special, something they thought you didn't have in you; and all along you did -- you just showed them. Not only that, you showed yourself! You are living a new, freer life now, the life you always wanted to live. Life is wonderful again. Life is wonderful for the very first time. This is reality. You created your own destiny through self-belief and action. You did it. Good on you!
