Apr 1 – Are you fooling yourself? How are you limiting your thinking in what you can and are able to do? How are you accepting what is dictated to you as what must be accepted? What is still available to you that you may be taking for granted? What is within your reach that you are not accessing or exploring? Yes, “social distancing” is absolutely essential right now for your health and wellbeing. The reality is, we are to “physically” distance ourselves, NOT socially distance ourselves. You have a world of access at your fingertips once you view it for the powerful tool and resource that it can be to stay connected.
Mar 25 – Is certainty out the window? Do you feel like you have lost control of everything in your life, work, or business due to all that has recently happened? Are you feeling fear and uncertainty about each moment, let alone each day and the days or weeks ahead? Do you find yourself worrying in ways you hadn’t before? When it feels like there is nothing you can do, it is in that very moment you can do the most empowering thing for yourself. Empower others. Focusing on others will help you feel immediately productive, which will shift your focus from feeling limited to feeling useful.
Mar 18 – Is scarcity all consuming? Amidst our national crisis, are you focused so much on what you can’t get or don’t have that you have forgotten about all that you already have readily available to you? Are you lamenting over how you are being limited and dictated to more than how you are being freed up? When you become so focused on being without, it is time to go deep within and remind yourself what can never be taken away from you, unless you allow it.
March 11 – Are you embracing the lesson? Are you frustrated by what has not happened or is not occurring as you had hoped? Are you disappointed in an outcome that didn’t result as you expected? Are you questioning your intentions because of what has not transpired? If you are so focused on what has not happened, then you are not embracing what has happened in a way that you can learn and grow. Just because you didn’t realize the result you had hoped for does not mean it was for not. The real opportunity is in learning from and gaining from the situation.
Mar 4 – Are you resisting opportunities? Are you not considering opportunities because you don’t feel you are ready yet? Are there options being presented to you that you have decided don’t fit with your current plan? Do you have a very specific mode of action that could be causing you to overlook or not pay attention to what is truly optimal? Are you charging forward without considering options that could make your efforts easier or more empowered? When you allow your focus to achieve to cloud your ability to seize opportunities, you could be sabotaging your momentum instead of building it. Opportunity doesn’t knock when you are ready. It knocks when you are open.
Feb 26 – Is it always tomorrow? Are there things on your wish-to-do list that you keep telling yourself you will do or have some day? Do you believe that what you most want must happen a little later? Have you caught yourself saying “Maybe tomorrow …” or “Someday…”? If you are always putting off what you most want to experience until tomorrow, what if tomorrow never comes? Instead, even if it may be in the future that you fully experience or have it, consider what you can do today, to make what you want most your reality.
Feb 19 – Are you addicted to stress? Do you feel as though you are in a constant survival mode, continuously reacting to all that is happening around you? Do you feel as though everything is coming at you, and nothing is happening for you? Do you feel as though you don’t have much of a choice in your current state of affairs and just need to keep on keeping on as best as you can? When you have been overwhelmed with a lot of stressful activity and demands, your physical body reacts instinctively to help you cope with the stress you are feeling. After prolonged periods of feeling stress, your subconscious takes physical cues and then begins to believe this is how you need to operate at all times. If you feel tense at all times, it could be that your physical being has become addicted to the stress, causing your subconscious mind to mistakenly believe this is the only way you can thrive.
Feb 12 – Is it never good enough? Are you having a hard time moving forward on a project or initiative because you are trying to “get it just right”? Do you constantly second guess yourself in your efforts? Are there voices from your past making you feel as though it is never quite good enough? Do you feel as though one challenge after another is keeping you from completing what you are setting out to do? Aiming to be the best you can be should never make you feel less than while in the midst of striving. In our efforts to achieve, we can sometimes get caught in a need for it to be perfect before it is ready for the world to see. This results in making things unnecessarily harder on ourselves.
Feb 5 – Need a little illumination? Are you in need of some fresh perspective or ideas in how to accomplish what you are setting out to do? Are you feeling a bit stale in the activities and initiatives that you are undertaking? Could you use a little insight or assistance, but not sure exactly what would be the most valuable choice in how you gain that support? Sometimes when we are mired in all our to-do’s, it is difficult to look above it all to see what may be missing or more effective.
