Acting When Prompted

The phone rings, you pick it up and say, “I’ve been meaning to call you, I’ve been thinking about you all day.” What stops us from acting when we are prompted? I’m talking about the voice you hear that tells you to reach out to someone by stopping by their office or picking up the phone. To send a card of encouragement to someone that you know is going through a difficult time. Chances are most of us don’t naturally act when we feel the prompting. We allow other thoughts and tasks to take over and we choose to ignore the prompting.

After a meeting, a friend and I had a short discussion about a challenge she was facing regarding becoming a leader. A few days later I heard the prompting and felt compelled to act. I knew I had more information and experiences to help her reach her leadership goals and realize they were within her grasp. I also wanted to let her know that I believed in her.

I was amazed, stunned really, when she told me that my message was exactly what she had been needing to hear. She told me that she had been doing some soul searching to determine what choices she should make in her career and the information that I gave her helped her get “unstuck” and move forward. She had a breakthrough!

What a blessing to learn that because I acted on the prompting, she received what she needed to move forward in her leadership journey.

So the next time you hear the prompting to act, don’t hesitate or dismiss it, instead take action!
