Just do it!

Monday, April 21st, 2014

What can you do differently today that would change things right away? Just go out and do something, anything different today!! So often we have a conclusion about how we want things to look. If only it could be like that…. If only I can see things change this way…… So to create ‘that’ we have to do ‘this’ and there is no room for anything else. We silly humans want it to be ‘this way’ because that is what we think will make us happy. By thinking this way we stifle the immense possibility of something even better showing up. When we make conclusions we stop the joy of creating and the fun and excitement that comes with generating new possibilities. Not doing and waiting for the perfect and right thing to do rarely makes us happy. “If you always do what you’ve always done you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten” Ouch! Again, we can’t possibility generate and create new things when we have already determined what it looks like before we act. So think of something you would like to see change and just do something different. And that will lead to a something else and then another something else and then you’re different and your life is different! I sound a bit like Nike, but Just do it!

Stuck to your story? Yuck!

stuck to wall

If you find yourself in the same internal conversation about what’s not working that you were in 6 months ago, you’re stuck!! Your mind has a way of perpetuating stories and beliefs that keep you comfortably, uncomfortable right where you are.   I find the best way to getting unstuck and moving forward is to first recognize and allow yourself to feel that icky, yucky feeling inside.  Some ways you might recognize those sensations are by noticing how you’re trying to prove your story right and someone else’s wrong, or by your clever excuses, justifications or defensive behaviors.  Recognize and allow the sensations then ask a moving forward question.  Such as, What else is possible here?  How does it get any better than this?  What would it take to …….?  Believe it or not you actually don’t have to have the answer right away, cause if you did already know the answer you wouldn’t still be stuck.  Asking the question is the beginning of opening up the energy for some other ideas to come to you that are more in alignment with moving forward than aligning with your old stories.   Ask questions from complete curiosity for a few weeks on a stuck topic and I mean every time you start going down the rabbit hole into the icky yucky stuck feeling of your story and in a few weeks let me know what’s different.  My buddy, Einstein say’s “We can’t solve problems by using  the same kind of thinking we used when we created them”.  Ask a question, let it go, you will be amazed at how your answers or better yet your new choices show up.
