Tell me what you want to do, and I’ll tell you how you can do it right now, regardless of time and regardless of money.
As Tony Robbins would say, “We are either operating out of fear or pleasure.” The difficulty most of us face is that we focus too often on what we’re doing and don’t see how we have the time to do what we say we’re really passionate about.
I was listening to a segment from Barbara Sher who passed away recently. She worked as a psychologist in New York and I’ve read several of her books. They are so down to earth and helpful. Her book Wishcraft talks about how you can have anything you want.
Her next book was about how you could have anything you want, as long as you know what it is.
That’s the challenge for most of us; we can’t clearly articulate what we want.
Is it a big house, a large bank account, to live on the ocean or travel?
But, how big of a house do you want and where do you want it to be?
How much money equals a large bank account?
What does it mean to you to live on the ocean?
Do you want to travel to the mailbox or travel around the globe? Do you want to do that by airplane, ship, train, car or bicycle?
Do you see what I’m getting at?
Both books have practical, actionable information and are easy to read. These two books had a big influence on how I structured the support to achieve my goals; everything from finding my ideal mate 21 years ago to creating a multi-million dollar net worth.
Anyway, back to the point of this post; as a practicing psychologist she was sitting with one of her clients who said her passion was to do artwork.
The client was an attorney working 80 hours a week and said there just is no time to do her art. Barbara asked what her favorite medium was, and she said, “Drawing.” So Barbara handed her a piece of paper and a pencil and said, “Go ahead draw my shoe.” Barbara could see the peace and calm coming over her client as she drew the shoe, and it only took 10 minutes.
The point is we lie to ourselves about how much time we have to do things. None of us are given more than 24 hours in a day or seven days in a week. How we choose to use that time is entirely up to us.
What is it you’re passionate about? What can you spend 10 or 15 minutes doing that makes you feel good?
Go ahead and do it, I give you permission.
To Your Prosperity,
