Heading Towards What You Want?

Are you moving toward what you want or attracting it to you?

Or are you trudging wearily, dutifully, maybe even resentfully, in the opposite direction?

I've been looking at this with people all week. Here are a few examples:

A programmer uses every ounce of his energy grappling with problem he doesn't like solving while dealing with personalities who are not a match for his.

He longs to work in nature and spend his days outdoors. A young man dreams of a work environment filled with inspiring, challenging cohorts. He spends 10 hours a day trying to convince an old-fashioned boss of his vision on a project this boss controls.

Then there is me. During a recent visit I hit an awful impasse, a terrible snarl of non-functioning communication with someone I adore who is really important to me. We hit reached sorry stalemate. When we parted the best we could come up with is "I love you," neither one of us knowing where to go from there.

Sometimes if you want to change your life, attract a new adventure, see what it's like to have a new job, a new relationship you have to turn and take a step in a new direction.

Daring to reach for something you never stretched a hand out to before takes courage. Getting something you never thought you could have feels like a miracle. Maybe that's what a miracle is.

Before you take a "These Boots Are Made for Walking" approach though, sort out the beliefs and feelings that create that unworkable situation you want to break out from.

What worked for me and my coaching students might help you too.

We dispelled fears of bad credit, disapproval, uncertainty, loss of love and a host of limiting, self-defeating beliefs.

We moved beyond blame or guilt to take responsibility for our own emotions and our own lives. Each of us dared to be happy or at least arrive at a state of peace with the way things are now.

It's easy to settle for second best, but it's hard to get enough. So we sharpened our focus on what we really want.

Now we're ready for miracles!

Like these:
  • Selling a million dollars worth of mansions in transactions that work well for everyone involved.

  • A job as a park ranger and finding a nature loving a soul mate.

  • Walking away from a dead-end low paying job to take one of several promising opportunities that may lead to the work experience of a lifetime.

  • Communicating in a new, productive, loving way.

  • Always being well accompanied and cherished throughout this lifetime.
What miracles would you like to gear up for?
