“When one begins to move in the direction of their dreams, a whole host of unexpected things begin to happen that were unthought of in the moment they decided to move.”
1. Hold the vision, the intention in your mind in terms of the end. Not worrying about how you’re going to get there, that’s for the universe to figure out.
2. Starting point! Step out into the world. When we show up, even though we don’t know the direction we are moving, even though it seems inefficient. the setbacks, the flaws, they are all steps to your arrival.
It’s not until the final seconds that realize you’re there. There are miracles everywhere! It’s always working. Everyone day you get closer. Stick with it. Even though today looks like yesterday. Until suddenly you’re there. Stay the course! Even though sometimes you don’t see the miracles, they will be clear in hindsight after you arrive.
Walk around as if everything is a miracle. Same concerns for all humans. But we practice. We are all amazing! We all have doubts. “If I worry, I worry.” I can’t stop the fear, but I can read and think about what I know to be true. Life is a supernatural gift. I know that we are spiritual beings. We are literally all miracles. Worry and fear are natural in the primitive times we live. We need to cut ourselves some slack. Confidence to not give up in spite of the fear. Doesn’t make the fear go away, but it manages it. If I worry, I worry, but I hold my head high and act as if I wasn’t afraid and move in the direction of my dreams.
“If you do what you can with what you have from where you are it will always be enough.” It always works. Life is beautiful. We all have an innate inclination to succeed. We always feel that everything seems inadequate, but it’s always more than enough. In spite of worry and fear, we always prevail.
What is it that you want? Once you can conclude, you start taking baby steps. You show up and you know the inevitability.
“Don’t attach to details. All details are unimportant. The details can excite you but the bigger picture is what we really care about.”
The truth: we all have default settings for friendship, laughter, and success so that we can even worry and be negligent and then be blindsided that the dots being connected for us.
Ultimate goal: happiness – (move towards) health, friendship, clarity, laughter, money … you don’t have to think of these things, they will still come into our lives– that’s how inclined we are to succeed. There is so much love, we are so powerful. Even the humblest of efforts will land anyone on their feet in the direction they are inspired to move.
Where you are is not who you are. You are infinitely more. You get to decide where your going regardless of you where you’ve been. You have an innate inclination to succeed. Don’t worry about your fear or negativity, just do what you can with what you’ve got. Hold on to the vision.
“Your thoughts become things… so choose the good ones!”
“Sometimes when things take longer than you thought they would, it’s just a gentle reminder from your greater yourself that you have more time than you thought and that there’s a journey to enjoy.”
The Four Agreements:
1. I am impeccable with my word. (No more talking poorly about ourselves or others!)
2. I don’t take anything personally. (What other people say and do is a projection of who they are!)
3. I don’t make assumptions. (Don’t assume I know and understand what people mean. Find the courage to ask questions!)
4. Always do your best! (And your best changes from day to day.)
Enjoy the path traveled and you’ll get to the destination! Be okay with being messy, with being a disaster before becoming a master. Enjoy the action without expectation of a reward. HAVE fun and do what you love in life! Do what you love, not what you get paid the most for. Enjoy the action! Live in the moment and have patience with yourself. Do your best. Always ask yourself, “Is this my absolute best right now?”
Be patient with other people. Be patient with yourself! ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST!
Immediate forgiveness. Become immune to the opinions and actions of others. Don’t harbor anger or disappointment. “It’s like drinking poison and then expecting them to die!” Whatever people say and do is a projection of themselves. We become so much more powerful when we don’t take things people say or do. Be gentle with people.
Be the change we want to see in the world.
Environment is stronger than will power. People get sucked into negativity. My wealth can only grow to the extent in which I am willing to grow myself.
Connect the dot that life is beautiful, that there is divine order. Everything is a miracle. Connect the dots you need but don’t connect dots you can’t connect.
If you want change, define the result. Don’t worry about the hows, just figure out the destination. But that doesn’t mean don’t take action. Take lots of massive action! Dream up your end results… let them be general, not encumbered with details. Everyday, do stuff, but not the cursed hows. Do the best you can and then turn it over your greater self, to the universe. Work smart. Make yourself available to life’s magic. Network, mingle, try websites, ask for help, speak, find out where it feels good. Find out where it feels lousy. Knock on all the doors. Keep trying different things. Where things work, you find progress.
“Have your dreams and show up every single day. Be prepared to be astounded!”
Don’t base conclusions only on things you can see. Miracles are happening everyday that we cannot see. Don’t draw conclusions with our physical senses. Everything will look the same. Don’t draw the conclusion that it’s not working. It’s working for you right now! Everyday you get closer. Everyday it gets easier. Hang in there despite of appearances. You’re powerful. You’re not broken. Keep showing up!
Negative thoughts don’t stand much of a chance against our natural optimism that we don’t even give ourselves credit for having. Positive thoughts align so much more with our natural selves.”
“Where you are is never who you are. You are infinitely more.”
Step towards the light. How do we start? Take what’s good and reject the rest. On a dime, you can wake up to the truth. Be kind to yourself. Forgive yourself. Choose the least sucky option and go! Just don’t wait. Don’t worry about hows. Say yes. Have a great attitude. Take micro baby steps.
Know what the truth is. When you know what the truth is, you are free from guilt, you are free from confusion and you immediately begin gravitating towards who you really are. You may seem lost at first. But you honor who you are and who emerges as you discover who you are. You follow your heart and it gets easier and easier and easier. You are inclined to succeed.
