The Relationship between Action and Results

“You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result.” – Mahatma Gandhi (1869 – 1948), Indian philosopher


This is something I need to remind my own self of, so often. And I find my clients benefit from this reminder too.

Introverts are often stopped by their concerns.

Some of their concerns are:

✨ They don’t want to be visible, “out there”, or seen.

✨ They can be afraid of the spotlight, and they don’t usually enjoy being the centre of attention.

✨ They want to do things “perfectly”, and want to know that their actions will lead to “perfect” results…

✨ They go into analysis-paralysis, a bit of overthinking… and therefore action gets postponed or even forgotten.

✨ Introverts truly have a LOT on their minds. It’s normal for us, our brains work kinda overtime.


I LOVE every single introvert and sensitive person who comes to me with these fears.


Yet, the thing is….

No results will come from no action. So we DO need to find ways to step into courageous action. And what I want to share with you is this:

Introverts, we CAN.

We need to do it in ways that are easy and comfortable, smaller steps that are sustainable and do-able.

With huge compassion, and empathy for the parts of us that are stepping out and showing up ANYWAY, even though we’d rather have a day in with our furrkids, books and intimate friends.

Keys to action for us introverts and sensitive souls are:

✨ Small steps

✨ Self-care

✨ Consistent, sustainable action

I’d love to hear from you.

How do you make sure your actions are small enough so they’re sustainable?
