Periodically, in my business, I stop to see where I am and choose where I want to be. Each time I have to answer these questions for myself: What is my level of commitment? “How big am I willing to play? What do I really want? How willing am I to step into the unknown?
Are you answering your call?
You can’t escape what you are good at. What you are good at is a gift. It calls to you, it nudges you, it demands your attention. Each time I pause for a “reality check,” I have to identify the parts of my life and activity that make me happy, the tasks that use all my skills and talents, the actions that touch my heart and nourish my soul.
The rest I can release and let fall away.
Is your dream big enough?
Once I define what I am willing to attract and what I am willing to release, my tasks begin to emerge. I can begin to vision my success at the level I have imagined. I can feel how it will feel when I have accomplished my goal, completed my task, or won my competition. I can “try it on for size” in my visioning and because I am the designer of my experience, I can adjust the design to make it a most comfortable fit.
Visioning the end result is a powerful step in manifesting your hearts desire.
(Note: My e-book Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, Visioning for Positive Change can help you with this step.)
Are you willing to step up to the plate?
If I don’t play, I don’t win. Quitters don’t win and winners don’t quit. When I commit, when I say “yes,” the divine mind says, “yes,” also and begins to line up everything I need to bring my vision into fruition. It’s like waving a magic wand to make the pumpkin turn into a coach. Commitment is a power word. It is a power action. It makes the changes happen.
Are you focused on your vision?
One foot at a time is all it takes to keep moving forward. One action, one goal, one effort. I must hold my intention at the forefront of my mind so it guides every action, every choice. I must step into my vision every day and feel its completion.
“When the soul wishes to experience something she throws an image of the experience out before her and enters into her own image.” —Meister Eckhart.
How committed are you to your success?
When I align myself with the universal flow, when I honor my gifts, when I choose for my highest good, when I commit to my vision, the universe does too. It provides miracle after miracle and clears the path before me. Commitment leads me higher than I have yet imagined.
What is your level of commitment?
