This morning I awoke feeling all lit up. I am more determined than ever to continue working to achieve my goals. In my mind success is assured because I KNOW (insert pic of Mel dropping the mic here). I decided what I wanted, I am practicing seeing and feeling the end result in my imagination, and I am committed. So what stirred up this attitude, you ask?
I was hosting an intuition development focus group last night and no one showed up – correction – I showed up. While I was apparently waiting for no one to arrive, I was busy thoroughly cleaning the toilet, taking care of all the plants and catching up on some reading. Actually, I had a nice evening and a good laugh – the irony of the situation did not escape me. There I was, cleaning the contraption that allows us to comfortably dispose of waste no longer needed, nurturing the things that help us stay alive and thrive by providing oxygen, and feeding my mind something positive and helpful. I say it was a productive evening after all!
1 a : the act of deciding definitely and firmly; b : firm or fixed intention to achieve a desired end; 2 : a fixing or finding of the position, magnitude, value, or character of something: such as the act, process, or result of an accurate measurement; 3 : direction or tendency to a certain end : impulsion
1 a : the interrelation in which a subject or its parts are mentally viewed; also : point of view; b : the capacity to view things in their true relations or relative importance; 2 : a mental view or prospect; 3 : the appearance to the eye of objects in respect to their relative distance and positions
I could have allowed myself to get upset after folks expressed interest and said they were coming but no one showed up and I opened my office and I wasted my time and so on and so on. NO! Instead, I consciously chose a productive perspective because I already KNOW that success is inevitable. I am listening to my intuition and taking inspired action. I am determined to continue showing up, doing the necessary work and maintaining a healthy, positive perspective. Therefore, I will be there again next week and the week after that. Been there, done that, and I am not easily dissuaded because this particular goal is bigger than the previous ones I’ve attained.
Mel’s Two Cents: Remove “I can’t” “It’s too hard” “This sucks” “It’s taking forever” “giving up” and “failure” from your vocabulary and mindset. You don’t get six-pack abs overnight without the sweaty workouts, so stop whining and keep doing the work necessary to achieve your goal. Take your time and be consistent, persistent and determined, all the while maintaining your health, peace and joy in check. Wow – that’s a mouthful and certainly not for the noncommittal or faint of heart.
Until next time.
