Conventional wisdom tells us to wait until we feel like it – at that rate nothing will ever happen.
According to the Torah, when Moses stood atop Mount Sinai and presented his people the stone tablets with the Law of Jehovah inscribed upon them, the Hebrews spoke in unison “na’aseh v’nishma,” which means “We will do and we will understand.” Basically the Hebrews decided that they would live the Law first, in the hope that through living the law they would eventually come to understand it.
Virtues don’t come through simply thinking about them. You have to “exercise them.” Aristotle’s promise is this: if you want a virtue, act as if you already have it and then it will be yours. Change comes through action.
Act first, then become.
Teddy Roosevelt said – “There were all kinds of things I was afraid of at first, ranging from grizzly bears to ‘mean’ horses and gun-fighters; but by acting as if I was not afraid I gradually ceased to be afraid.”
Start by Doing. Right Now. See what you want, who you want to become and just jump in! Become them, it, all, everything NOW.
