Achieving goals is one thing. Manifesting the life we desire is another. Too often we focus on taking steps, achieving goals with no real change in our lives. I see people working hard to achieve goals then realize that something is still missing.
We are a goal achieving society that can distract us from who we are at our core. Real success comes from being focused on the life we desire. Goals are often created from the idea that “I should ____.” Whenever I hear myself or anyone else say, “I should ____”, I know we are reacting to something outside ourselves that is not connected to who we are at our core.
On the other hand, when we go within and know the life we desire real change is possible. It is easy to change things superficially, i.e. change job, change boyfriends or start exercising but creating real change takes more.
There are things in our life that we love, are proud of and want to continue. There are also things we do not enjoy, long for or resist. Having a clear vision is the first and most important step.
We are always being and becoming something. In this moment, we are being what we believe to be true. Thoughts are creative. What you thought yesterday, you are experiencing today. Some of those thoughts are deep and very old. Others are from more recent experiences. The older ones are harder to release, even if they do not serve us as they are sitting unconsciously in our space.
What’s next? We get to choose. We have free will. Sounds simple but it is not easy. Changing thoughts and energies that we hold as a matter of routine takes focus, self-awareness and determination. If we do not change the concepts in our space and our energy level then nothing of significance changes. We resort to setting and achieving goals but nothing changes.
Give this a try. Meditate on the life you desire, personally and professionally. Do this everyday. See it clearly in your mind’s eye. Notice and clear your thinking about your ability to have that vision. Believe, be certain and enthusiastic about changing from where you are now to the life you imagine. Do not look back, entertain negative thinking or let your energy level drop. Get out of routines. Remember to change how you are being or nothing changes.
Be conscious, deciding how you want to in each moment. Have enthusiasm for the vision you are manifesting. Focus on feeling different. Act in new ways. Change takes time though only as much time as you believe.
These steps to create real change sound simple though we know change is not easy but well worth the effort.
Best wishes on your success, Kay
