WHAT'S YOUR FUEL FOR GROWTH AND CHANGE
Hello again Dear Friends,
Here, in the foothills west of Denver, the trees, the plants, the grasses, and the wild flowers are all starting to explode in growth and beauty. The growth is fueled by moisture, sunshine, and heat, and when all three are in place the growth and change is sudden and often spectacular.
Our day to day expedience, and often lack of patience that many live their lives may give the false impression that desired change and growth is occurring at a snail's pace or not at all. In our electronic age of instant gratification we are often lured into thinking that we're not making any progress, when in fact it is just the opposite.
When we look back 20-30 years of our lifetime we easily see the many changes we have been through with kids, finances, relationships, emotions, work, and our physical body. Looking back it all seems to have occurred so quickly, but at the time of our great life transformations it may have seemed like we were walking in quick sand, with one laborious step after another.
Time always gives us a clearer lens and more accurate perspective into most areas of our lives, but the question usually comes back to GETTING WHAT WE WANT RIGHT NOW! I come across many individuals who remain in an unsettled or unhappy place because they are continually waiting for some future event to create their joy and fulfillment.
Here's a great definition of happiness I recently came across: "Happiness equals the harmony between man and the life he lives". Is there harmony between you and your life?
Another way I have made this point over the years is what I call in my books "The Emotional Match". I have found the Emotional Match to be one of the most potent fuels anyone can utilize while attempting to change and transform in any number of ways.
What is the Emotional Match? Its feeling today (in harmony) the way you will feel after you receive that which you choose;. Can you imagine what you will feel like when you lose the weight, get the job, or find the relationship partner, or have the $10,000 or or or? Think about it, how does it feel?
Once you can feel this place, even for just moments at a time, you've taken a gigantic step towards achieving it. Now, practice through mindfulness (meditation) keeping this feeling for longer and longer periods.
As you succeed with this exercise the next step is syncing this feeling with action steps. It's the syncing of the Emotional Match with the proper action that creates desired manifestations. Without BOTH steps growth and change may be difficult to achieve.
What are your action steps for:
Becoming more enlightened
Becoming more fit and healthier
Meeting new people
Our fuel for anything we choose is having the proper emotion AND the proper action. For us, humans emotions and action act the same as the moisture, sunshine, and heat to nature.
Take a walk in Nature this week, observe the recent rapid beautiful growth and understand we all have that same power.
With love and appreciation.
