I know it’s Valentines Day and that it’s a day to celebrate our love for one another but can we fall in love with the process towards our greatest success too, pretty please (with agave/sugar/honey on top)?
We really must ask ourselves what our level of awareness is in any given situation.
Are we aware of what it takes? Are we aware that we WILL get there if we just keep taking powerful forward steps each and every day? Are we aware that we all go through this? And of how utlimately human the process is? Let’s talk about it, share, laugh about it, write about it…let’s seriously fall in love with the process.
The outcome will be so much sweeter.
Don’t you feel better already? Awareness at all levels and of all kinds not only helps catapult us to our largest success but truly helps to ground us in reality (letting go every day, more and more, of this idea of perfection).
Awareness also leads us to understanding where we really are.
And seeing as we can’t get to where we’re going without knowing where we’re at, practicing awareness and a certain mindfulness helps support our happiness ~ our success ~ in a big, big way.
“Start where you’re at”: at his event last week, David Neagle discussed this in detail.
In essence, so did Dr. Seuss over and over again, as well.
I’ll add me (the yogi) in there as well. In fact, I’m actually toying with the idea of naming one of the chapters in the how to be a Walking Momtra™ book, Start Where You’re At.
Again, knowing/accepting there will be midnight course corrections going from Point A to Point B is key. Happiness experts agree that adopting a growth mindset, one that (quickly) accepts these zig-zags, keeps drama at arms-length (keeps you focused on the good life) and ultimately lessens the time between A and B.
I, for one, have seen this be very, very true in my life and business.
In short, I think it comes down to doing the work. The work ~emotionally or otherwise ~ that it takes to get our desired effect.
Get to your desired effect.
Gift yourself with the awareness to ask yourself:
Am I willing to do the work on myself AND on my business it takes to live my biggest, happiest life?
And who doesn’t love the pearls o’ wisdom from Dr Seuss?:
You’ll look up and down streets.
Look them over with care.
About some you’ll say
“I don’t wish to go there.”
With your head full of brains,
And your shoes full of feet,
You’re too smart to go down a not-so-good-street.
And you may not find any you’ll want to go down.
In that case, of course, you’ll head straight out of town.
It’s opener there, in the wide open air.
Out there things happen, and frequently do,
To people as brainy and footsy as you.
And when things start to happen, don’t worry, don’t stew.
Just go right along, you’ll start happening too!
Oh the places you’ll go!
