Desire a sense of possibility

super hero kid

I came up with this list a couple of winters ago when my darling husband was headed off to live in Israel for four months while my son and I stayed home in Michigan. The first week he was gone, I sat down and with a great deal of help from my Captain, wrote this list to help me stay focused on getting through the next 4 months.

 

 

♥ Desire a sense of possibility.
♥ Encourage compassion and accountability.
♥ Promote motivation, communication and education.
♥ Make it simple and small until it’s do-able.
♥ Recognize enjoyment.
♥ Get a rhythm.

Instead of letting the daily fears and doubts pull me off track, this list has helped give me a healthy way to direct my energies. Every day I see this list taped up over my desk as a reminder that a good life is a process, not a state of being. It’s a direction not a destination. Building confidence takes time and dedication. How I focus my energies every single day will eventually create my life. It’s up to me to decide what I really want and then go get it.

What is it that you really, really want most of all?…….

You might be afraid to name it, for fear of being disappointed.

Yeah, I get that. Truth it, that’s just your ego talking.

Your real true self wants you to be happy, peaceful and successful. Not fearful, frustrated and cynical. Try letting go of the fear, just for a moment.

Seriously, take a full minute and just do it…..let it go……calm face

Open yourself up to desire a sense of the possibility that you, YES YOU, can be happy peaceful and successful.

Although your ego will struggle at first, your true self will get stronger the more you open yourself up to its guidance.

Being confident doesn’t mean you’re never afraid. (hardly!) Confidence comes from the realization that there is a possibility to succeed.That sense of possibility changes your attitude from hope-less to hope-full. Steer into that hope-full desire as you lean toward the possibility for success. You don’t have to know exactly how it’s all going to work out. Life would be boring if you did.

So think about it, my friendly blog reader?

p.s. Just ‘cuz I don’t know now, doesn’t mean I won’t know then….Just ‘cuz I don’t know how, doesn’t mean I won’t know when. :)

    and esp liked, “Whenever you feel you like your losing your confidence, come back to your desire. It’s the key to opening yourself up to the possibility of success…” –

    Such an important reminder Pam!
    I want to remember this as I create my workshops for others. I really enjoy the creating part and sometimes overlook this when I focus so much on the deadline.
