You are already everything you’ve ever wanted to become. You’re not missing anything.
You are imminently worthy; All Things Pass.
Stop Time Travelling. Past and Future are imaginative illusions, only the Present exists. Anxiety and regret are trips outside reality. When you worry about something that has not happened — IS not happening to you right now — you are investing in delusion.
Worry is like paying back interest on a debt you haven’t even signed off on or benefitted from.
Stop Judging Yourself. You fulfill your life purpose, already, with every breath you take.
Your life purpose is not a JOB; it is the part of you that comes through no matter what job you do. You don’t invent a life purpose — it is inevitable and it is pulled from you by other people. It’s what other people get from you, not what you necessarily decide to give them.
Look at what others ask of you — what advice do they want from you? What do they ask you to perform? What assignments do they give you? It is a pattern — once you identify what it is, then you can simply do more of it. You can direct it with intention.
Define Success. Who is the author of this definition — you or someone else?
Stop perpetuating failure. Insanity is repeating the same patterns of actions and expecting the results to change.
Do things that you’re good at.
Make a list of your personal heroes. Why are they your heroes? What do they do that you do too? Find someone who’s already doing what you want to do and adopt their expertise, their process. Copy them, as a starting point.
Define the Thing you want to manifest with as much detail and emotion as possible; do not define HOW it will happen.
Don’t Make Sure. Proceed on faith. Intuition and integrity are instantly delivered by your consciousness.
Put yourself on a Whine Diet. Pessimism is a bad habit. Start retraining your conscious mind to process challenge in a new context.
A Diary or Personal Journal is a particularly fertile breeding ground for manifesting negativity. There are two prescriptions that will, over time, cure pessimism and literally change your life – Gratitude and Challenge Renovation. To Renovate Challenges, try this: whenever you find yourself wanting to write down What Sucks — what problem has been thrown your way, what life has slapped you with — express it in terms of what you could do about it.
Name the forces and powers and entities you interact with in your life — personify them — and start having relationships with them, as opposed to letting them be DONE to you. Start relating to your Problems as entities you have hired to tutor, teach, and coach you through the lessons they bring.
Transform who you are and what you love to do into a project with a mission by teaching someone else how to do it.
Change the scale on which you operate. If you can teach one person how to do something you love, you can potentially teach millions. Employ a new vehicle. Maybe YOU should be an author.
Surround yourself with kindred souls. Again, publishing a blog is an incredible means to bypass the limitations of physical space, reach other like-minded individuals, and act as mirrors for one another.
What are you placing on the Throne of Your Attention? Anything you give energy to — positive or negative is irrelevant — attention is energy, and like attracts like.
Instead of focusing on what you don’t want or what you want to remove, focus on adding more of its opposite. If you stop doing something, you create a vacuum. You create a hole through abstinence — simply NOT doing something is a misguided step in the right direction. Replace the old action with a new, more desirable one.
Prioritize. Fill your life with too many of the things you love — if there IS such a thing. If you prioritize correctly, after completing the things you MUST do, you start on the things you love — if you put enough things on the list, you’ll simply never get around to the extra things you despise that you don’t HAVE to do.
