When it comes to focusing, I can sometimes be like the dog in the Disney animated film Up, who will suddenly look off and get excited when he sees a squirrel. To me, self-help, and learning new techniques, can easily become, “squirrel!” It’s fun to learn more and more, but at a certain point, it can become an avoidance tactic. All that knowledge, but are you implementing and living it?
It’s very easy to go into resistance when it comes to focus and clarity, especially around our goals. The subconscious mind chatter comes up to make us avoid doing the work we know we need to do to manifest those very things. Sometimes it’s not even chatter; as soon as you go to focus and really connect to yourself, bam- it’s, “this room has to get cleaned right away,” or, “I have to run this errand now,” or someone suddenly needs help that only you can give. Notice how often you give in to distractions.
And yet, once we get focused and clear, the Universe will move mountains in support of our goal. This is one of my favorite quotes regarding this:
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.'”
from The Scottish Himalayan Expedition,1951 - by W.H. Murray
Focus on your dreams, notice where you get distracted and avoid, and begin now. The world is waiting.
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
