Are You WILLING To Create Your Life?

Is your choice to remain stuck or take action to accelerate your life?

Over the past few weeks a consistent theme has been appearing in conversations. Though it has taken several different forms, the essence is the same.

“Are you willing to change?”

For many this has never seemed to be an option.

Yet, in even putting the question means this is the moment for you to focus on what is and what is not working in terms of your broader objectives and achievements.

What do you want to expand and create in the year ahead?

Who do you really want to be?

What do you want to devote your energy, your unique abilities, gifts and skills to achieve?

Which leads most to the biggest struggle they have — the battle with their own mind and its negative patterns.

Yes, I have been there. A repetitive thought pattern being stuck in a negative loop and continuing to cycle until it burns out.

Thoughts of scarcity, greed, more lack, unworthiness, fearful “What-IFS”, visibility and anxiety stemming from having no apparent solutions to the insurmountable problems the mind brings.

Often it feels as though someone is hijacking your mind and you are now just a bystander watching your life unfold.

Which you are, because your mind is directing your life based on what it believes has been experienced. Which is almost always not true and is not only from this life.

Some 40% of our actions are directed by our ancestral lineage, and then there are the other lives. Let alone cultural norms and karma.

Identify What Is Holding You Back

Research has shown less than 5% of our actions flow from our conscious choices. To affect any change you must be willing to do so, to step out of your existing comfort zone.

We know change is underway, yet all too often we follow the ostrich with its head in the sand rather than be the eagle flying high.

Have you identified the thoughts and habits holding you back? What are the negative behaviours that continuously defeat you? Why do YOU continue to fail whilst watching others succeed?

The era we are entering encourages us all to stay true to our soul´s mission, recognising our true identity. What are your values and what do you stand for?

What encourages you to wake up each morning filled with enthusiasm and a joy for the day ahead?

Are you willing to change your beliefs and patterns of behaviour to do so? To leave yesteryear for your unknown destination?

Your dream is not a future event. It is TODAY. It is NOW. It is created by your actions in the moment. This is the essence of the process of creation.

Rather than believing your current circumstances dictate your future…

…be willing to accept you have a choice. One where your dream, your vision creates your future.

This you create by taking action toward it before you believe you are ready and able to do so.

You create your vision by deciding and claiming it.

By BEING that person now.

With none of the evidence of experience to support you.

Be willing to make the change and your world will change.

Be Willing To Create Your Dreams

So now you know the secret. There is nothing to wait for. Begin to build your dream now in anticipation this is creating an extraordinary new life.

No matter how big or how small, your dreams are essential to enjoying this life to its full potential.

They appear because they are the way the Creator has chosen to express itself through you.

Only you have to be willing to create these dreams.

Should you choose to be unwilling to do so, they will pass you by.

My intent is to provide you with the opportunity to identify what is stopping you from accelerating your life and establishing it as you desire.

So how do you begin to accelerate your life?

Once you have understood the Opportunity available to you, the next step is to make the choice as to whether or not you are Willing to take this next step in my TOWARDS process.

If not, what are the recurring thoughts and habits holding you back? What are the limiting beliefs restricting you? Why do YOU continue to fail while watching others succeed?

To begin answering these questions, ask yourself: “As every day is a new day, how can I stay in the present moment and create greatness from this day? What IF today is my last one?”

And…”How much more restriction and suffering am I willing to accept before I willingly choose to transform my life and the way I live it?”

The next step is to begin to identify the reasons WHY you are stuck in neutral.

Your beliefs, behaviours, habits and thoughts are the pillars of your life.

Being prepared to acknowledge the darkest parts of your mind where all the scary fears and secrets are buried, is essential.

Actions to take to help you do so are in my Taking Stock story.

Know Thyself

It is here you will come to know and acknowledge your lessons for this life.

Daily Action:

For the next three days I want you to make a list of all those that stop you from accelerating your life.

Here is an example of the list I created:

  • Procrastination
  • Lethargy
  • Entitlement
  • Fear (includes scarcity, lack of, doubt, uncertainty, etc…)
  • Distractions
  • Habits damaging my health and wellbeing (defined as any behaviour that leads to an undesirable outcome)

Create your list and send it to me. Two days later, I will follow up and share with you how to proceed with the next step.

Once you are willing to change, transform and reinvent this day, and all other days, you will have begun to move beyond these obstacles.

Do not forget to state aloud you are willing to change. Then ask for assistance to do so.
