“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future”  ―    Deepak Chopra

My thought today is to keep moving forward.  Looking for new things to create.  Finding new ideas that inspire you to move forward and learn more.

I am so grateful for my friends, my choices that help me move towards new ideas and Love – generating more hope and joy.

Wow .. my spring has really started off like no other that I can recall, is that the energy of 2012?  Well, I won’t postulate on that all I can say is that everything is different this year.  The weather is different, and all the new projects, the number of which may have seemed overwhelming before suddenly seems remarkably doable.  So here is my list of projects as I am working on them:

This website and two others oh, and now one more … so four websites in total.

A new wellness business with my friend J — we are actually still preparing for the build out and hoping we can finish the build out and be up and  running within 6 weeks.

A new baby — ok he is 6 months old and yet he is still new and needs all the best of my energy.  I should have listed him first because he is first.  If he needs me – I don’t go anywhere and everyone knows it.

A new house?  My husband has almost decided we are going to buy a new house – wow I thought that might still be a year away.  Seems he is pretty set in his mind on this one.  And it might also happen in the next 6 weeks!  And so that would mean a new garden area  – a permanent garden area for me!  That actually excites me more than any house.

I had to return last night to my working book Write It Down, Make It Happen after allowing some concerns to creep in.  And reading through the chapters again and the advice on how to write through to what I want to see happen I once again felt myself achieving my goals.  There is so much going on this spring – it’s interesting it seems the more busy I am the less time I have to let the concerns creep in because most of my energy is so focused on deliberately creating all the time.  I guess that goes along with the saying that if you give a new project to a busy person they tend to get it done.  Time to get a few more things done!

I guess the short answer is yes and it’s also probably no at the same time.

Often we say things that either we just don’t really mean to say or that if we heard ourselves we wouldn’t want to say.  I learned a while ago to stop using the phrase, “I don’t know.”  I found that I had started using that phrase before I would even stop to think of whether I knew the answer to something, so I would say that I didn’t know and then just two seconds later I would say, “Well, maybe…”  Another word/phrase I unintentionally use a lot is, “What?”  and I use this again before I even stop to think about what was said.  I find that if I am not really listening to someone then I start to use that word because I am not actually paying attention.  And so now I have learned to listen to myself and when I hear the word “What” or before I am ready to say it I try to stop myself and consider what was said since I did hear it and I can recall it if I want to.

Well those are small examples of how we often don’t actually listen to the words we are using and how they do tell us something about ourselves.

If you have written down your goals and you are working towards them.  Listen to your words — do you hear yourself say the killer phrases; I can’t, I don’t know how, I don’t know, I couldn’t, I wouldn’t be able to …. I am sure you are getting the idea.  Listen to your words – think about what the repetition of those phrases tells you about what you think of yourself and what you can do and then try to make some adjustments to how you say things.

What do your words say about what is true for you?  What do you really want to be true for you?

I can make a difference.

I can be a loving and caring person and be wealthy.

What is your Truth?

“There’s no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love. There is only a scarcity of resolve to make it happen.”  Wayne Dyer

Our biggest obstacle to making things happen is usually ourself – we procrastinate, we don’t believe we can make it happen.

Lay these by the side and give yourself a timetable.  Decide for the next 90 days you are going to do something — and work at it just to see what you can achieve.  If you have your goals laid out then just set aside the time required to give each goal some of your energy each day.  Be your best self – Live full out for 90 days and see what happens.  If after 90 days you are not invigorated and moving towards your goals then try something different.

Maybe that’s not the “resolve” Wayne is talking about in the quote – I think he is saying resolve that no matter what, no matter how long it takes … well just do it for at least 90 days — the longer you work at them the closer you will be.  If after 90 days you can be resolved then that is fantastic or maybe by then you will have achieved your goals.  I think I have heard it said that after 18 or 21 days if you have done something every day it is now a habit — so maybe by pushing yourself for 90 days you will have formed a habit and resolve will come more easily.  Go for it!

So I made a few small changes already – I didn’t really think about them too much I just did them.

I bought clothes, actually I bought one pink blouse and a pretty green sweater to wear and I bought them in my size instead of one size larger.  First, I never wear pink but when I saw it – simple and plain and the right weight I knew I should get it and I wore it already and it felt great.  And I heard several people comment on it and so that small change was pretty simple and I feel good about it.  I always buy clothes one size larger – this time I thought I should buy them to fit me and they do and they feel great.  So the color and the fit were both small changes – to soften up my look a little and it feels really good.

I also spent time telling someone how they can set up their own website to make some additional money.  Then I took a few extra minutes to also blog about it on one of my other sites – one that is just in the building stages and needs some extra attention.  I believe by helping others create what they want and need we further our own interests also.  Sometimes, like in this case maybe it just solidifies the idea in your mind helping you believe you are doing the right thing.  Sometimes, maybe that person tells another person about you and gives you a compliment — who knows how it works — it just does.  Any time that we spend helping other people comes back to benefit us in one way or another.  Connect, connect, connect!

Those are just a couple of things that I thought I would share quickly to provide small examples of what I am doing to move forward with my goals and examples of change, which is how we grow and allow for more in our life.

Look for ways to allow more in your life; more happiness, more fulfillment, more change – because it is through changing what we do, how we think, and how we act that we will reach our goals.

…Flock together

I’m sure you have heard the phrase and plenty of others with similar meanings.  I was thinking today about how being my highest and best Self is easier when I have others around me who are striving for the same thing and trying to create similar experiences.  I hope at one point in your life you have had powerful personal experiences.  I have and they are incredible and make you feel limitless and just overall amazing.

Quite some time ago, when I was working a corporate job, I was a very disgruntled employee.  I watched one of those television infomercials for a real estate program over and over until one night I finally said, “hey, if those people on the television can do this then I can.”  And so it started.  I ordered the program and I read it and put it aside!  I did.   And then something set me off while at work again and I re-opened the program and I began working through it step by step and I did it!  I realize now that since my intentions were not quite in the right place why I lost it all eventually, besides the fact that I thought it was all a fluke and it was “easy come, easy go” for me.  I had quite a few beliefs that I carried along with me and my temporary success.  Hopefully I have been able to truly change those beliefs and as I create anew I will have only continued and permanent success.  I learned a lot of lessons along the way, some I only scratched the surface of and had to dig deeper to learn and some I got right away.  One of the things I learned was to look around at who my friends are — they are a picture of me.  If my friends are doing well – then that is where I am headed – if my friends lives are full of drama and tension then why am I involved with them, is that what I want for myself?  There are so many lessons that I see from this time in my life.  Another one, if you follow the path that has been set out for you by others who have succeeded then you can do it also.  Another one, Let others who have done it before help you – but be honest with them and give them all the information so they can really help you.  I learned that one by doing the opposite!

Have friends around you that will uplift you, that you feel you can talk to and be honest with so that they can encourage you along your path.  Connect with people who have gone down the same path and who are positive themselves and who are striving for new goals in their lives.  Look around at your friends are they positive, encouraging, helpful, completely honest, setting new goals for themselves?  They are a picture of you.  Connect with who you want to become, while you are meditating, when you create your goals, and in your circles of friends.  If you want to be the best you possible, have people around you that can truly help you realize that potential.

I think it is in our nature to take the easy road.  I didn’t say the lazy road but maybe sometimes they are quite close to the same, I think that is its own discussion since creating is a multi-faceted process.  I believe this is in our nature because as I watch my son, who is under one year, he always looks to find the easy way and I think I remember thinking similarly when I was younger.  Somewhere on the path of our lives we have been told that it’s not easy, that “money doesn’t grow on trees,” that you have to work or work hard for a living all your life, and I guess I could go on.  So somewhere on our path we learned that everything we do is supposed to take a lot of work and we are going to have to struggle a little instead and so we often no longer even look for the easy road.  So I remember thinking that there should be an easy way when I was younger, similarly or conversely I remember as I grew people saying to me that I was making things much more complicated than they had to be…. hmm…. that’s not the easy road.  So I invite you to take a look at things in your life as I have just had this “ah-hah” moment while sitting here and ask yourself if you are taking the easy road or if you are making things more complicated than they need to be?
