Sept 23 - Are you starting to back pedal? Have you been going full force in pursuit of your dreams and now you're starting to feel hesitant? Have you committed to doing something and now when it is time to get moving on it, you're having second thoughts or finding every excuse or distraction not to do it? Whenever you are proceeding to unknown territory, it can feel overwhelming, uncomfortable, and even threatening. Confirming why you are feeling the way you are feeling is the most important next step you can take.
Sept 16 - Are you limiting yourself? Have you recently discounted a potential option or direction you could go because you made the assumption that it was not a good one? Have you not considered a suggestion someone has made to you because you simply didn't think it would work or was viable? Are you keeping too much about what you are doing to yourself, not sharing with anyone? It is important not be too hasty in jumping to your own conclusion when being presented with options, opportunities or alternatives. Your greatest power towards reaching your ultimate goals and desires is in being completely open to where various options and paths may lead. If you don't honor yourself by gaining more insight and understanding about each possibility, you may actually be pushing your efforts backwards without even realizing this is what you are doing. Don't allow assumptions to cloud your vision. Being open to possibilities means being open to other people and their possibilities.
Sept 9 - Wishing you could clone yourself? Do you find yourself wishing you had another "you" to keep things moving and progressing the way you envision? Are you feeling like there are not enough hours in a day to get all that you want to accomplish done? Are you frustrated by other people because their work or action are not being performed to your standards, level of passion, or competency, which is causing you to feel as though you are the only one that can progress things forward effectively? Nothing is more disheartening for a high achiever than feeling limited when you are doing everything you believe that you can do. The dilemma is that as you take on more and more in order to accomplish more and more, you are actually crippling your ability to achieve the things you have set out to achieve. No one can do it all alone. Other people bring unique talents that could manifest progress beyond what you are seeing now if you open yourself to the possibilities. By appreciating others, you open a world of probability in making what is possible real.
Sept 2 - Is what was working not working? Have you realized success through a certain way that you have approached an endeavor that is no longer reaping the results it once did? Do you find yourself perplexed by stagnant progress when you have been putting forth a great deal of effort based on past successes or achievements? Are you frustrated by the fact that what once worked seems to no longer to be working, and you now are uncertain what your next steps should be? Ever-changing times are an invitation to evolve to an even higher level of being and doing.
Aug 26 - Are you second guessing yourself? Are you doubting your next steps or how you are going about tackling a particular problem or initiative? Are you venturing into unknown territory, which is playing a head game with your confidence in being able to accomplish what you are setting out to do? Pushing yourself beyond where you've been is exactly what you need to do to succeed in life. Understanding what is happening inside your head is how you continue to leap ahead in whatever you venture to do.
Aug 19 - Are your priorities clouded? Do you feel a fog has set in and is causing you distraction with multiple directions and demands making it difficult for you to know where your focus should concentrate? When so much is expected of you, from yourself and others, it can feel as though what must be done isn't at all what you would really like to be doing, and yet, you must get it done. When this becomes more the norm than the exception, it is time to take a step back and ask yourself why. Do you feel you are not accomplishing what you ultimately could be accomplishing, but are uncertain exactly what you want to accomplish? Are you hesitating to put your priorities first out of fear of failure, taking the risk or perhaps even a lack of confidence? Allow your dreams and desires to be a priority and then make them a priority in the small actions you take each day.
Aug 12 – Are you limiting yourself? Are you feeling limited in what you can do because of the current state of affairs? Do you feel the weight of responsibility on your shoulders from all directions? Do you wish you had more options? Do you wish you had more support? Do you feel you must handle and manage it all, and that is just the way that it is at this time? When you feel you are limited and have no choices, the first choice you need to make is to be open to all possible resources, options, and support. When you open your mind to others, you open the possibilities.
July 29 - Are you planning for success or survival? Are you planning for success or still planning for survival? How are you planning for things to be different in your business, your career, or your life than they are currently? How are you analyzing what has worked? How will you continue to build upon what worked for future successes this year, despite of the disruption that has occurred this year? If your goals and actions are focused on maintaining what you have, then you are in a survival mode, fearful of losing what you have accumulated or accomplished thus far. Instead of being protective, be projective about your future. Envision the ultimate outcome of what you could realize because of achieving these goals. Open your mind, your eyes, and your heart to the possibilities.
July 22 - Do you want something different? Do you want something different? Do you find yourself looking at your life and wishing your circumstances or things were different than they are right now? Are you frustrated by what is not happening or what cannot happen due to things that are out of your control? When you spend a majority of your time focusing on what is not as you desire it to be, you are giving it power over your ability to manifest a different outcome. Instead, focus on how you can make any aspect of your life better. Focus on how you can move forward, even in the smallest of ways. By focusing on progression and improvement, you are no longer wasting energy on what has been and are putting your energy towards what could be.
