On Today’s Monday Motivation, Corry discusses Action with Sam DeLeon.

Sam DeLeon is a California native, married to her high school sweetheart and has three school aged children. She is on a mission to see the beautiful in life, learn from the hard stuff to move forward and encourage others around her to do the same.   With a deep passion to learn about God’s design for His creation, including how He made the body to beautifully partner with the rest of creation, Sam has shifted from being a freelance creative designer to pursuing a career in holistic nutrition.  She has a hunger to know more and is continually learning how interconnected our mind, body and spirit are and learning ways on how to honor our WHOLE being – how to respect, honor, treasure and care for it. She believes that for herself, her family and has a passion to share it with others.  You can follow along with her journey on Instagram, @samdeleonblog.

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

~ Dale Carnegie


What is stopping us from taking action and stepping into our full potential? Our thoughts! Our thoughts, on autopilot, keep us comfortable. They tell us things that would stop us from taking action and stop us from doing what we can now. “I’m not qualified yet. I need more experience. Am I allowed to?” All these thoughts delay us from doing today what we can, telling us we have to wait for the green light. 

Harriet Tubman was a woman, who did not let her limitations or obstacles stop her from doing what she could. You probably know her as the woman who, after escaping from slavery, into which she was born, saved hundreds and thousands of slaves during and post war. What inspires me deeply about her is that as a child she was beaten severely and in one beating suffered a head wound, causing her disabling seizures, narcoleptic attacks and headaches. Despite these ailments, she made a huge difference in the lives of countless people. She didn’t wait for the certificate of completion, giving her the right to go free the slaves. She didn’t think, “Oh, there’s nothing I can do, since I could have a seizure.” She took action. She did what she could with what she had and that was clearly enough. Her efforts saved thousands. 

I am so inspired by her because I do find myself making excuses why I can’t do something. “I’m not allowed. I’m not ready.” What a lie! There’s always something I can do right now, with what I have. 

We all have potential. We all have ability. We can all do something right now with what we have. Let’s shift our focus off what is stopping us and onto what we can do. I encourage you today; take a look at your situation and ask, what can I do, right now, with what I have? Take action and move forward.
