PEP TALK : What You’re Not Changing, You’re Choosing with Micah Folsom

What You're Not Changing, You're Choosing

We are back with another pep talk inspired by a good workout and a shower. In this episode I bring you some truth love that you can apply wherever you see fit in your life. I encourage you to choose to take action in the direction of your goals. In doing so, you will feel so much more empowered and will build momentum to actually make the changes you want to make. 

Show Notes: 

03:04 Feeling Stuck, Resentful or Frustrated?

I am sharing something today that was a topic in my stories a little while back. It’s this idea that what you’re not changing you’re choosing. If you are feeling stuck, resentful or frustrated, you can’t complain about it unless you are willing to do something about it. It’s wasted energy pouring into these negative emotions if you’re not taking action to make a change. 

04:50 Lack of Work = Lack of Results

When you make choices that don’t support your goals, you can’t complain about it because you hold the power in your choices. If you can get curious about what’s not working, then you can fix it. So many people spend their energy getting frustrated about their lack of results when there is really just a lack of work. The more you can recognize these cycles of what isn’t working, then you can move through it and do things differently. 

10:36 Stop Thinking and Just Do Something

Is there any space in your life where your actions are not aligned with your goals? And the fact that you are not aligned has you feeling frustrated and discouraged? Action is the secret sauce for everything in life. Stop thinking so much and go do something in the direction of where you want to go. 

13:56 Baby Steps in Alignment

I don’t plan a lot of my content for my Instagram stories, I just lead with my heart. So often when I share what’s on my heart, I get a message saying that what I said was exactly what someone needed to hear. To me, that is a sign of alignment. But when our fears take over and stop us from taking action, there is nothing for God/ The Universe to work with. We need to step into what we can do to change the situation, whether it’s in our business, our parenting, or our marriage. Baby steps over time will empower you and lead to change. 

18:47 Align Your Words and Actions in Your Business

When it comes to your business, are you thinking about it, or are you actually doing it? Back your words with your actions. Otherwise your words mean nothing. The fastest way to grow your confidence is to get your words and your actions aligned. That’s integrity right there. 

21:07 Simple Daily Changes in Your Health

When it comes to your health, if you continue to live the way that you’re living, nothing will change, even if you’re unhappy with where you’re at. It can be as simple as drinking more water, or getting to bed earlier without screens before bed. Whatever it is, you just need to know that you can make a simple change today. It’s a baby step in the right direction that keeps you moving forward. It’s a simple decision to keep showing up. 

23:51 Giving Up Does Nothing For You

It boggles my mind when people quit completely after getting a little off track. That does not help you move forward AT ALL. Have compassion for yourself and know you are in this journey for the long haul. If it’s something you desire, stop giving up. If you are committed to staying on the path, you WILL get to your goals.

26:20 Make the Choice Today

Make the choice today and stop entertaining your doubts and your fears. Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone in any area of life that you want to grow in. Decide what you’re taking the next step on, celebrate, and build on that momentum.
