Do It Anyway, No Matter What

by Shannon on February 23, 2012

There’s that thing.
We all have it.

That thing that your heart is tugging at you to do.

That thing that you know will lead you down the right path. You can just feel it.

That thing your gut is telling you is the right thing for you to do, the right choice for you to make.

Yet, we don’t do it.

What is it about that thing?

Why don’t we do it even though we know in our hearts — and in our gut — that it is the exact thing we should be doing?

Not because it’s right according to someone else, but because our soul and every other part of us is screaming it’s right for us.

I say do it. All of us. We should do that thing.

Even when you’re scared, do it anyway.
Even when you have doubt, do it anyway.
Even when you don’t know exactly what to do or how to do it, do it anyway.
Even when others think you’ve lost you’re mind, do it anyway.
Even when you think they’ll say no, do it anyway.
Even when you think no one else will understand, do it anyway.

Whatever it is that is getting in the way of you doing that thing,

Do. It. Anyway.
And do it no matter what.

Your soul is talking to you.
Your soul is begging you to be courageous and honorable and brave.
Your soul is trying to lead you down the path to your hearts desires.

You say you want to be happy.
You say you want to be successful.
You say you want to be loved and accepted.
You say you want to be enough just the way you are.

I do too. We all do.

Your heart and your soul know how to help you get all of these things and more.
Listen to them.

They are speaking to you.

So even when you’re scared and tired and doubtful, and you will be when it comes to that thing…

Do it anyway.
No matter what.
You’ll be glad you did.

Now it’s your turn…

  • What is that thing for you? You probably have more than one.
  • What is stopping you from doing it even though you know in your heart it’s the right thing for you?
  • If you looked beyond the fear and doubt, what would your heart tell you about this thing, your thing?
  • How do you imagine it would feel if you did your thing anyway, no matter what, because it could give you the happiness, love and acceptance you are longing for?
  • Take a good close and personal look at the fears and doubts that are stopping you. Get to know them well. They are trying to protect you, but with these things, you don’t need to be protected. Let them know you appreciate that they love you and are looking out for you and then tell them, “I’ve got this. You are welcome to come along, but I’ve got this one.”
  • Choose one of your things and Do It Anyway, No Matter What. You can start small, but start. Now. And then, smile, because you just got real, very real.

Share please… We would love to hear about your things, about your fears and doubts, and finally, about the thing you chose to Do Anyway, No Matter What. Start a conversation by leaving a comment.

I guarantee you other people have their own things and their own fears and doubts. Let’s rally together and support each in doing it anyway. Will you be the first? 🙂

* Want some help with doing it anyway, no matter what? Check out Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Dr. Susan Jeffers. I read this book when I was 22 years old and highly recommend it if you want to get real about this whole concept of doing it anyway.
