Creating a Life That Works

The journey from where we are to where we want to be does not have to be arduous or riddled with stress. In fact it can be a gentle expansion into more of everything we want for ourselves and even more that we have not even thought about yet.

Are you ready to move rapidly forward in your life? Are you ready to reach for your dreams with conviction and commitment so that they really happen for you? Are you ready to be, do and have those things you have always hoped for but often wondered if they were really possible for you?

We all talk a good game. Many of us take actions that we believe will indeed move us closer to what we say we want. But I have noticed something interesting in my own life and in the lives of my clients. When moving closer to our most heartfelt dreams requires us to stretch beyond our comfort zone or make a significant change in our own attitudes we are not so quick to persist.

If you have read this far and you are still here, you probably recognize yourself and your tendency to gravitate toward what feels comfortable and safe even when you know change is required for reaching your dreams. Here are a few tips I use to strengthen my creative muscles. They help me remember how to steer my course toward the manifestation of my real dreams.

First:
Tell yourself the truth. What do you really, really, REALLY, want?
There is no sense focusing your energy and attention toward those things that do not really matter. Creating a life that works does require energy and so we might as well use our energy for our real passions and desires.

Next:
Choose one thing to focus upon. Why only one? Choose one topic because it takes singular focus to get the job done. Most of us attempt to take on too many things at once. It does not mean our other dreams get lost. It just means that for a certain period of time - an hour, week or month one primary focus gets our full attention. Manifesting big dreams requires that from us.

Most likely what you want, if you really tell yourself the truth, will fall into one of the following three areas of life:

To improve the quality of your relationships

To establish financial freedom

To attain ongoing vibrant health

Now:
Maintain your focus, manage your own thoughts and feelings so that they are positive and hopeful and enjoy your life. This sounds easy, and yet it can be the most difficult part. They key here is to know that the creative process happens in the invisible world before it becomes visible. Consider a seed planted in the ground. Before it ever breaks the surface of the soil and shows its first leaves much has happened to move it in the direction of its potential. Our dreams are similar. Much happens in our own hearts and minds before the outward manifestation of our dreams is visible. Staying the course requires us to tend to our own inner attitudes and to trust the process of creation is naturally at work within us.

Let it be easy. Know what you want, choose your dreams fully and clearly, maintain your focus with enthusiasm and then relax and enjoy your life.
