Is chasing your dreams working against you?
This week I want to work with you on an ability that will put you instantly into a place of power and positivity.
You wonder why? Well, if you are in a place of power and positivity everything you create, every decision you make, every conversation you have, every idea you give birth to will have exponentially more traction.
If you create from a place of lack, from a place of not having enough, the quality of your thoughts, your creative genius and as a result your choices will be diminished.
So what does that really mean for you? Well, if you cannot wait to jump into 2015 because you’ve felt hard done by, by 2014, no matter how hard you work, you won’t create the level of success and happiness that you are really looking for. If your eyes and heart cannot see the beauty in what you’ve got right now they won’t be able to see it when your dreams in 2015 have come true.
So if you can get yourself into a state of genuine appreciation for what you’ve got going on in your life right now, if you can hold both your future dreams AND your current life situation with equal attention and love, everything will change for you.
So how can you make this work for you? Number one, rest assured that I’m not asking you to forfeit your dreams, hopes and goals and resign to a life that is anything less than exciting to you. Have those dreams and AT THE SAME TIME....
....work hard on seeing the blessings that are in your life right now. Sometimes we get so used to all the things that do work out for us, all our little luxuries that living in the western world entails that we loose perspective.
So this week every time you say Thank You I want you to SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT. When you pick up your coffee, look your barista in the eyes and genuinely give thanks and sense how that feels in your body. When someone holds the door open for you, offer a smile and express your gratitude like you mean it and at the same time feel it in your body.
It’s so easy to diminish, overlook and forget all those little things that make life easier and enjoyable and within no time we end up feeling sorry for ourselves thinking that the world has conspired against us.
When you express authentic gratitude it not only lifts up the receiver but IT CHANGES YOU. It moves you out of “poor-me” victim energy into a way of being that feels supported, into a place of positivity and power. And that’s where you are at your most powerful.
Lots of love,
