I recently stumbled upon Alex Mathers’ (https://alexmathers.net/) work and I was so happy I did when I read his article What I tell myself when life is beating me down. It contains so many little refreshing gems, but the part that I found most inspiring was this:
Every decision made to move assertively — even if it’s the ‘wrong’ move — is an act of rebirth.
Ever notice how when you act with resolve, rather than playing the victim, you are filled with renewed energy? Do this at every step.
Stay moving, whether you’re terrified or euphoric. Even when you sleep. Dreams grant us this freedom.
Keep your calendar filled. Exercise every day. Keep producing. Be prolific. Be assertive despite the awkwardness. Build a vast, outstanding portfolio. DON’T STOP CREATING, AND DO IT WITH A PLAYFUL URGENCY, UNATTACHED TO THE OUTCOME.
Never stop moving.
I’ve been reading it a dozen times ever since and thinking about how simple and how truth that is. Never stop moving. 🖤
