This year is powerful.
Most everyone I know—friends, colleagues, clients—are being pushed to their limits. I am too.
Are you complaining and playing the victim? Or, are you grabbing the reins and shouting for joy as you bolt forward in life?
I choose the latter. How about you?
As I shared in the January 31st post about the energy and potential that this Year of the Horse offers us, you will be tested. You ARE being tested.
That is what makes it even more important that you…
Be Mindful of the Seeds You Plant!
What do I mean by that?
Each thought you have—good or bad—is an invitation for more of that thought. If you quietly worry in your mind about money, you’re inviting more financial stress and scarcity. If you’re silently expressing gratitude for each experience, you’re inviting more of those good people, opportunities, and generosity into your life.
Each word you speak—good or bad—is an equally powerful invitation. Remember my 2nd foundational principle: Wherever you direct your attention, energy follows. If you want more positive attention from your loved ones, be sure to kindly and positively compliment them or thank them for those moments when they do listen to you or give you loving attention. Like attracts like, and you want to nurture those good seeds.
Each choice, each action—whether it be how you spend your money, or the people you choose to spend time with, or how you allocate your time during the week—speaks to the world: “I want more of THIS in my life!” So choose carefully.
Even in the toughest moments, when your limits are being tested, make sure you:
- Keep everything in perspective. What is shifting? What good changes are coming on line for you? Did you consciously or subconsciously ask for what you’re creating in your life?
- Affirm the good stuff. Express gratitude out loud to the world (the universe, to God): thank you! Express gratitude to each person in your life for how they support you, contribute to your well-being, help you to be your best.
- Plant more seeds for what you want more of. Be mindful of your state of mind and your thoughts. (Use a practice like journaling or meditation to cultivate greater awareness.) Think carefully before you speak. And wisely allocate your time and make choices that support what you want more of in your life now and in the future. Do you really want to work late again? Do you really want to miss your loved one’s special event? Do you really want to skip another workout?
It’s time to… plants seeds for what you want more of in your life! With your thoughts, your words, and your actions. Bring the smallest details of your life into alignment with the bigger vision you have for your life—YOU ARE WORTH IT!
