I have a theory that one of the hardest parts of creating the life we dream of is figuring out what we really want.
There’s something that happens when we have complete clarity that gives us a sense of motivation and focus, meaning we can create a life that most would call “charmed”.
Yet years come and go and we often feel we’re making little progress towards our dreams.
The arrival of a New Year is a great time to focus our attention on what we really want and get clear about our priorities. Then all we need to do is sit back and believe.
It’s taken me years to figure that one out. I used to be the Queen of “doing”. If I wanted something, the first thing I would think about was the “how”. And if I couldn’t figure out the “how”, I would feel discouraged and would give it all up as a bad idea.
Nowadays, I realise that all that “mind work” of working out the “how” meant I was missing all the signs and opportunities along the way. They would have made things soooo much easier!
So here’s a rule of thumb that was on my Abraham-Hicks perpetual calendar this week:
Make a decision about what you want,
focus your attention there,
find out what it feels like to be there.
And then let go and wait for inspired action.
By far the most important part of this is deciding what you want.
So if you could wave a magic wand and have any life you wanted, what would you wish for?
My invitation to you this New Year is to:
- Make a decision about what you really want and write it down
- Imagine you’ve already got it / been there / done it and really feel the emotion of that
- Spend a couple of minutes in that “place”
- Repeat every morning before you get up
- Turn your radar on every day for actions that will move you closer to your dream. Don’t force it, just let it happen.
Here’s wishing you the 2009 of your dreams!
