You may have heard about this thing called visualization, where you spend time focused on what you want your ideal outcome to be. If you were a pole-vaulter, you would see yourself sailing above the pole and landing perfectly in the sand. If you were a performer, you would see yourself moving through the performance with all of your lines perfectly executed. If you were working on attracting something to yourself, you would visualize yourself using it over and over again. Spending 30 quiet minutes a day visualizing is optimal to visualization. Does that work for you or does that fail you?
I bought myself an early birthday present. It has become a sacred icon to my journey of fully awakening my awesomeness. I stepped into the gallery, saw a painting by Naomi Haverland(http://happilyhaverland.blogspot.com/), of an unabashedly, messy and colorful girl and I finally understood.
Cleaning Up the Junk From Bad Ideas (Removing Obstacles)
It seemed like a good idea at the time…..
This has been my response a few too many times in my life and I don’t think I am alone in this. Enthusiasm can get the better of me, my hand goes up all on its own to volunteer and promises bounce all around and get me into trouble, because it seemed like a good idea at the time. Now what do I do?
There is a rule in my businesses, it’s not real until you put it in an email. We have lots of conversations about lots of things and nothing seems solid until we commit to it in written form. This saves us from stressing out over random passing comments that were not followed through on or being delayed in a project because someone thought they shared a detail. That rule has saved jobs and sanity and relationships because it’s not real until you can take a moment to commit to it and share it with the people involved.
