If your life isn’t working out the way you want it to, change your thoughts and daydreams. It’s all on you. Your thoughts create your life experience. You have the power to change that. You have the power to design the life you want!
Look at what’s not working
Sometimes there are very subtle things that keep us from achieving happiness. It may be some self-worth negativity you’re feeding yourself. It could be that you have set your expectations too high, or too low. It may be that your dreams seem not to be aligned with your reality. Big or little, become aware of what’s not working.
Change your expectation
Take a close look at what you expect can happen. I sometimes look at people with a broad business platform and mostly see the repetition it takes to acquire that. I would be bored singing the same song over and over. Or giving the same talk, or teaching the same classes. I don’t even want to write about the same topics over and over. Exploring is at the core of my happiness. So the bottom line is that I don’t want to have a broad platform if what I have to do requires a lot of repetition.
But what if I change my expectation of what it takes to have a broad platform? What if I drop all the “ways I know to get your business known” and just keep putting out my natural enthusiasm and the discoveries I continue to make? I would be happiest doing that.
Change what you believe is possible
See how I have damaged my expectation? I hold a belief I need to release. That belief says I have to repeat the same material over and over in order to become more known. And everything in me is saying, “Keep exploring. Keep exploring!”
What if it’s possible to simply radiate my ideas and discoveries in the forms that are the most enjoyable to me and believe that more and more and more people will find my work and be moved by it?
My measurement stick is flawed. It’s not about numbers. It’s about the results that are created. I have a very high open rate among my readers so I know that lives are being changed by the shift that happens from some of the concepts I explore. I also know that my work (as does yours) has a ripple effect.
One idea received and absorbed and acted upon can move mountains.
What is your more expansive thought?
In my heart, I know that I touch lives. I get to release any thought of measurement by numbers. I now think in terms of the depth of the change that’s made in the people who are drawn to my discoveries and my insights, in my current forms of sharing. And because in my mind I know that those who are drawn to my work are major players in their own sphere of influence, I know that the ripple effect of my explorations goes places I cannot even begin to imagine.
What do you think you are doing?
How can you change what you think your impact is in order to allow it to be resilient, heart-touching, and far-reaching
One heart at a time. One life at a time. One share at a time. Keep shining your light – and trust.
